Ever since Donald Trump pulled off one of the biggest upsets in recent history by defeating Hillary Clinton last November, many wondered how the experts got it all wrong. When it was revealed that Russia was behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) with the goal of electing Trump, even more allegations started to come out.

Putin on Trump

Even before Election Day, various reports broke that openly questioned what relationship Donald Trump had with the Kremlin. Due to the president-elect keeping his tax returns private, the allegations that he has financial ties to Russia were never able to be publicly verified, or disproven.

Another indication that Trump had links to Russia was his former campaign manager Paul Manafort being forced to step down last August do to his own financial tie to the country. In addition, the billionaire real estate mogul refused to ever criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin, despite making sure to talk tough on other world leaders. As reported by The Hill on January 17, Putin is coming to Trump's defense.

Not long after the election, the CIA revealed the results of their secret investigation that concluded Russia was responsible for the hack of the DNC.

Last week, CNN broke their own story that claimed Russia was actually blackmailing Donald Trump with "compromising" information. Buzzfeed then elaborated further, using unverified information, and reported that the Russians had a sex tape in their possession that showed the president-elect paying prostitutes to engage in "golden showers."

"In my opinion, there are several goals, some are obvious.

The first is to undermine the legitimacy of the elected president of the United States," Vladimir Putin told Sputnik News on Tuesday, while calling the allegations against Russia "complete nonsense." On whether or not Trump paid for sex workers while visiting country, Putin is not convinced.

Putin on Trump's women

"I find it hard to believe that he rushed to some hotel to meet girls of loose morals," Vladimir Putin said, "although ours are undoubtedly the best in the world." The Russian leader went on to praise the former host of "The Apprentice" for meeting some of the most "beautiful women in the world" over the years.

While it's unknown how the U.S. and the Kremlin will conduct business moving forward, Donald Trump is now just three days away from being sworn in as the next commander in chief.
