The biggest story to break since Election Day has been the allegations that Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee with the goal of helping to elect Donald Trump. In a follow-up story, CNN reported that Russian operatives had "compromising" information that they were planning to use to blackmail Trump, which has not gone over well with the president-elect.

Trump's Twitter denial

When CNN first broke their exclusive story in regards to the alleged Russian blackmail, Donald Trump quickly denied any wrongdoing, labeling it "fake news." Buzzfeed went on to elaborate on the details, publishing unverified information about an alleged sex tape involving Trump, which included two prostitutes taking part in a "golden shower." While CNN is standing by their bombshell exclusive, reporter Bob Woodward, of Watergate fame, referred to it as "garbage." In response, Trump took to Twitter on January 15 to praise Woodward and demand an apology from the media.

"Thank you to Bob Woodward who said, "That is a garbage document...it never should have been presented...Trump's right to be upset (angry) about that...Those Intelligence chiefs made a mistake here, & when people make mistakes, they should APOLOGIZE," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon, while quoting Woodward.

Trump then went on to conclude his two-part tweet by stating the "Media should also apologize."

During his interview on "Fox News Sunday," Bob Woodward explained that the CNN report was likely incorrect.
