COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 2



> Russian President, Vladimir Putin, coming to the aid of President-elect Donald Trump Tuesday in Moscow. Throwing cold water on suggestions Trump might have met with prostitutes in Moscow on a 2013 visit, as alleged in an unverified dossier that Trump has dismissed as fake news.>> This is an adult man, first of all, and apart from that is a man who for many years took part in organizing beauty contests.
He has socialized with the most beautiful women in the world. I find it difficult to believe that he ran to a hotel to meet with our girls of reduced social responsibility. Although here, also, we have the best ones in the world.>> And Putin offering choice words for those reporting the details of the memo written by a former British intelligence officer and included in a briefing Trump received from four intel chiefs earlier this month.
>> People who order hoaxes of that kind that are now spread against the US President-elect who fake them and use them in political struggle are worst than prostitutes. They have no moral limitations.>> The memo ignited a firestorm after the site BuzzFeed posted it online, but it had been circulating among journalists and intelligence services for months, alleging Putin had compromising information on Trump centered on the trip to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant.
Trump and Putin both deny the incident ever happened. Putin adding there was no reason for Russia to even want to spy on Trump years before embarking on his White House bid.>> Last week, Trump, for the first time, conceded Russia likely hacked Democrats in the 2016 campaign, but he also praised Putin saying being on good terms with the Russian leader would be an asset and not a liability.
