3:32 am
russia had compromising information on him. >> last night he tweeted we had a great news conference. a couple of fake news organizations were there but the people truly get what's going on. earlier he blamed the intelligence community for leaking the information. >> i think it was disgraceful that the intelligence agency has allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out. i think it's a disgrace, and i say that, and i say that. and that's something that nazi germany would have done and did do. it's a disgrace. the information that was false and fake and never happened got released to the public. >> the director of national intelligence says he doesn't believe any leaks came from the intelligence community. >> clapper spoke with trump last night making it clear the unverified report is not a product of u.s. intelligence. abc looked into the claims and found they were filled with some unverified details. >> reporter: officials confirm

that while the allegations about russia and donald trump are completely unsubstantiated they are the work of a former british spy hired first by republican operatives during the primary and later by democratic operatives who turned over these memos to the fbi last august. and we caught up with john mccain who confirmed he gave copies of the memos to the fbi director last night. >> i looked at it. decided this is a matter for the fbi, gave it to the fbi. >> reporter: a senior official says trump was directly told about the allegations last friday at trump tower when he received a classified briefing about russian hacking which contradicts what kellyanne conway initially said to seth meyers. >> i believe it said they briefed him on it. >> he said he's not aware of it. >> that concerns me. >> reporter: now an examination by abc news reveals serious
