Kellyanne Conway had to do lots of damage control over a report that President Obama and President-elect Trump received an intelligence briefing that Russia has some serious dirt on him, including a possible sex tape. Conway responded with a bombshell allegation of her own, and it’s quite crazy. She blamed the entire thing on Hillary Clinton:

Here’s Trump’s response earlier:
FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!

Here’ s what CNN reported about Trump and the dirt Russia may have on him:
Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.”
“The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Mr. Trump.”
Here’s what Vox reported on the sex tape:
“There is a persistent rumor in Washington intelligence circles that Russian intelligence “filmed Trump in an orgy while in Russia,” as one writer put it. These rumors get very lurid — we’re talking illegal sex stuff lurid. But they’ve been impossible to track down or verify and thus report in any meaningful sense. Expect to see a lot more speculation along these lines now that the CNN report is out.”
This is all just absolutely insane. What have we done, America?
