2016 ELECTION/RUSSIA: "On the eve of his first news conference in more than five months, President-elect Trump faces unverified allegations that Russian officials had gathered compromising information about his personal life and political associates, further deepening the controversy over Russian involvement in the 2016 election.
The information is contained in a 35-page file that was published Tuesday by BuzzFeed , which said it was publishing the material in the interest of 'transparency,' but had not been able to corroborate it… The material alleged that Russia for years had been 'cultivating, supporting and assisting' Trump’s political rise and possessed damaging personal and financial information that could be used to blackmail the president-elect."
