Classified documents presented last week to President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Trump, the CNN reported on Wednesday.

The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. CNN confirmed that the synopsis was included in the documents that were presented to Mr. Trump but could not confirm if it was discussed in his meeting with the intelligence chiefs.

The classified briefings last week were presented by four of the senior-most US intelligence chiefs — Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers.

The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources.

CNN said it reviewed a 35-page compilation of the memos, from which the two-page synopsis was drawn. “At this point, CNN is not reporting on details of the memos, as it has not independently corroborated the specific allegations,” CNN said.

What CNN did not, the BuzzFeed News did. BuzzFeed, which claims to have copies of the dossier, said they were publishing the documents “so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government”

According to the documents, the Russians fully exploited Trump’s “personal obsessions and sexual perversions” in order to obtain suitable “kompromat” (compromising material) on him.

“According to source D, where s/he had been present, TRUMP’s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him. The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.”

The documents, published by BuzzFeed News, also say that though the Russians offered Trump lucrative real estate  development business deals, especially in relation to the 2018 World Cup soccer tournament, Trump, “for reasons unknown,” has not accepted them.

The document goes on to add: “Trump’s unorthodox behavior in Russia over the years had provided the authorities there with enough embarrassing material on the now Republican Presidential candidate to be able to blackmail him if they so wished.”

Trump reacted to the report by tweeting: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”

The president-elect also charged via Twitter that his “crooked opponents” are trying to undermine his electoral victory. He accused the intelligence community of leaking the information to get in “one last shot at me,” saying, “Are we living in Nazi Germany?”

Trump criticized the intelligence agencies for leaking the documents to a section of the media saying it was a “tremendous blot” on them if they did it.

Trump also said, for the first time, he believes Russia was behind hacking ahead of the election. “I think it was Russia,” Trump said, adding that Russia is not the only nation that hacks US targets and China and other countries do it too. He accused Democrats of not having sufficient cybersecurity programs.

In what may be described as a clearly threatening tone, Trump said during a press conference held later in the day that those who published “fake news,” “will surely suffer.. suffer immensely. They are already suffering.”

The Kremlin dismissed the report as “fake” and “total bluff” in a statement on Wednesday morning, saying it had no “compromising information” on either Trump or his 2016 rival Hillary Clinton. On Tuesday night, Trump’s political advisor Kellyanne Conway also dismissed the claims as coming from “unnamed, unspoken sources”.

According to CNN, one reason the nation’s intelligence chiefs took the extraordinary step of including the synopsis in the briefing documents was to make the President-elect aware that such allegations involving him are circulating among intelligence agencies, senior members of Congress, other government officials in Washington as well as some journalists.

These senior intelligence officials also included the synopsis to demonstrate that Russia had compiled information potentially harmful to both political parties, but only released information damaging to Hillary Clinton and Democrats.

This synopsis was not an official part of the report from the intelligence community about Russian hacks, but some officials said it augmented the evidence that Moscow intended to harm Clinton’s candidacy and help Trump’s.

The two-page synopsis also included allegations that there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, according to two national security officials.

Some of the memos were circulating as far back as last summer. What has changed since then is that US intelligence agencies have now checked out the former British intelligence operative and his vast network throughout Europe and find him and his sources to be credible enough to include some of the information in the presentations to the President and President-elect a few days ago.

The raw memos on which the synopsis is based were prepared by the former MI6 agent, who was posted in Russia in the 1990s and now runs a private intelligence gathering firm.
