When we reproted on the latest scandal presented by CNN, and reinforced by, of all outlets, BuzzFeed, one day before Trump's first press conference in month, according to which a 35-page memo laid out "explosive, but unverified, allegations" that the Russian government has been "cultivating, supporting and assisting" President-elect Donald Trump for at least 5 years, a document whose distributor admitted "is not just unconfirmed: It includes some clear errors", and which many other media outlets refused to post because they could not confirm the accuracy of its contents, we said that "we are confident that following the CNN report, which dramatically escalates the narrative of the illegitimacy of the Trump presidency, that the president-elect will have some very harshly tweeted responses in the coming hours."
We didn't have long to wait, and moments ago, in what may be the first of many tweets, Trump responded angrily, in all caps, as follows:
"FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!"
FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!

Something tells us this it not the end of this particular story. Not by a long shot especially since even Matt Drudge is now personally involved...
Are corrupt US intel agencies blackmailing Trump with their own dirt cleverly tagged to 'Russian' operatives? https://t.co/M786GqgsCe
