Is the story that Russia has compromising intelligence against Donald Trump "fake news"?

Donald Trump thinks so. The truth is no one knows. The report has not been verified by a reputable source, and BuzzFeed News, which published it, has been open that that is unverified. One report on Reddit says that members of the 4Chan group wrote the substance of the report as a piece of "fanfiction" and then found it being taken seriously. This too is completely unverified.
