WATCH | Vice President Biden confirmed that Obama was briefed on unverified claims that Russian operatives have compromising information on Trump.
President-elect Trump, Vice President Biden and President Obama were briefed on unsubstantiated claims that Russia may have compromising information on the incoming commander-in-chief, CNN first reported.
The claims were presented in a two-page synopsis appended in a report detailing Russia's interference in the 2016 election.
The credibility of the claims have yet to be confirmed by the FBI and other intelligence agencies.
Discussion of the alleged compromising information began earlier this week after Buzzfeed decided to publish the 35-page report. It noted that the allegations remained unverified.
That decision quickly drew scrutiny, but Buzzfeed executives continue to stand by their decision.
Trump has since refuted the claims, calling the publication fake news.
Last week's briefings were presented by Intelligence Director James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers.
Multiple sources told CNN said that the nation's top intelligence officers took the time to include the two-page synopsis so that the president-elect was aware of such circulating rumors.
