While introducing President-elect Donald Trump during a Wednesday morning press conference, Sean Spicer, incoming press secretary, called BuzzFeed’s unconfirmed Tuesday report on Trump’s dealings with Russia “frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible.” Trump has called new leaks to the media of alleged sex blackmail materials held obtained by Russia as being “fake news.” Spicer said it was "highly salacious and flat-out false information" that the "left-wing" publication reported "just days before he takes the oath of office." Spicer attempted to discredit the report with specific points. Vice President-elect Mike Pence also condemned the report. Just hours before, Trump himself tweeted, “One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?” Trump declared that he has “nothing” to do with Russia. “NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!” he said.
