President-Elect Donald Trump has accused US Intelligence Agencies of leaking allegations that Russia has compromising material on him. He was replying to unsubstantiated allegations that his election team colluded with Russia and there were salacious videos of his private life.

Intelligence Agencies considered the claims relevant enough to brief both Trump and President Obama last week. Trump also said for the first time that he accepted Russia was behind hacking attacks that took place during the Presidential Campaign. In his first briefing as President-Elect, Trump also confirmed he was handing total control of his businesses to his two sons.
