    President-elect Donald Trump will hold a news conference Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET. 

    While the press conference had been planned, it will take on a different tone after media outlets published a story Tuesday saying top intelligence officials last week told Trump about an unsubstantiated report that Russia had compromising personal and financial information about him.

    According to The Associated Press, the briefing about the document was first reported by CNN. A summary of the allegations was separate from a classified assessment of Russia's suspected attempts to meddle in the U.S. presidential election. Trump and President Barack Obama were briefed on the intelligence community's findings last week.

    Shortly after news reports were published about the briefing, Trump tweeted: "FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!"
