On Tuesday, BuzzFeed published a series of highly sensational memos about President-elect Donald Trump. The publication of these memos has been criticized by The New York Times and Donald Trump’s Transition team alike because they have not been substantiated.
Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to discuss the memos calling them garbage and total crap.
“Well, I mean, the BuzzFeed memo is total, complete garbage is what it is. BuzzFeed themselves said it was garbage. The New York Times would not even print the document because it was unverifiable,” Priebus told the panel.

Priebus disputes that Michael Cohen, who is at the center of these memos, ever went to Prague something that these memos claims he did.
“This was opposition research done by some campaign or operative that somehow leaked out. It is not an intelligence document,” Priebus went on.
Legendary NBC reporter Tom Brokaw said that he was aware of these memos months ago and took them to a senior intelligence official who told Brokaw, “I have no idea there is something like this going on.”
“It’s not even reportable because we don’t have the verification of the various charges that were there. So it’s been around, and a number of organizations have been looking at it for some time,” Brokaw went on to say of the reports validity.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough added, “It’s not even classified, and it’s opposition research that Republicans running against Donald Trump generated and then Democrats running against Donald.”
