US Spy Agencies Practices’ Reminiscent of Nazi Germany: Trump

American spy agencies use Nazi tactics, the incoming US president Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

Alwaght- American spy agencies use Nazi tactics, the incoming US president Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

Nine days before taking office as the US president, Donald Trump in reaction to US media outlets that reported claims that he was caught in a compromising position in Russia accused US intelligence community of practices reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

"I think it was disgraceful, disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out. I think it's a disgrace, and I say that ... that's something that Nazi Germany would have done and did do," Trump told a news conference in New York.   

Trump's remarks came after BuzzFeed published on Tuesday a 35-page document containing unverified information from an alleged former British operative who claimed that that Trump was caught in a compromising position in Russia. 

The document also claimed that Russia is in possession of "compromising" personal and financial information about Trump which it is using to blackmail the US president-elect.

Addressing a news conference in New York on Wednesday, Trump described the published material about him as “fake” and a “political witch hunt,” and said that the leaks from the US intelligence community to some media outlets were reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

"I think it was disgraceful, disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out. I think it's a disgrace, and I say that ... that's something that Nazi Germany would have done and did do," Trump said.

He, however, admitted that Russia likely hacked the Democratic National Committee and the emails of top Democrats during the 2016 presidential election. "I think it was Russia,” he said, pointing out that other countries were also hacking the United States.

Russia on Wednesday rejected the BuzzFeed document as a “completely fake,” adding that it does not possess any blackmail file on Trump containing footage of him in a “compromising” position in a Moscow hotel.

However, on Wednesday he reiterated his goal of closer ties with the Russian president. "If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability.”

Trump also suggested that intelligence agencies even leak information when he hold meetings with their officials.  

"I have many meetings with intelligence. And every time I meet, people are reading about it. Somebody's leaking it out," he complained.
