Trump Slams Press Ahead of This Morning's Press Conference



President-elect Donald Trump mounted a heated defense on Twitter Wednesday morning over new unsubstantiated allegations that Russia is in possession of personal and financial information that could prove compromising to his presidency.
The tweets came just hours before Trump is due to give a much-anticipated press conference where he was expected to discuss plans for his businesses post-inauguration. The press conference, held at Trump Tower, will now likely be dominated by questions relating to the unsubstantiated report.
Trump on Tuesday night called the stories "fake news," but escalated his argument this morning. He went after intelligence agencies for allowing the reports to leak to reporters, asking, "Are we living in Nazi Germany?"

Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?

Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!

Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is "A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE." Very unfair!
Today marks 167 days since Trump last held a formal press conference. His transition team had previously scheduled an event in December but delayed it, arguing that Trump needed more time to resolve potential conflicts of interest before he entered the White House.
Trump has said he will hand over the Trump Organization to his two sons, Don Jr. and Eric, but ethics experts, who suggest a blind trust, say this arrangement does not go far enough.
Some 66 percent of Americans surveyed in a Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday said they hope Trump will place all of his business holdings in a blind trust, where assets are sold and administered by an independent trustee.
In addition to this morning's press conference, several of Trump's cabinet nominees will field questions from lawmakers on Capitol Hill as they seek confirmation, and just days after the release of an unclassified U.S. intelligence report that alleges Russian cyber meddling in the 2016 election sought to benefit Trump's candidacy.
