The news today is filled with reports that Russia has information on President-elect Donald Trump that could be compromising to him professionally and personally. Is this another internet rumor or is there any truth the news?
A spokesman for President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday dismissed as an “absolute fantasy” allegations that the Kremlin has collected compromising information about President-elect Donald Trump.
“The Kremlin has no compromising dossier on Trump, such information isn’t consistent with reality and is nothing but an absolute fantasy,” Dmitry Peskov, who handles Putin’s day-to-day communications, told journalists.
U.S. officials Tuesday said that a classified report delivered to President Obama and Trump last week included a section summarizing allegations that Russian intelligence services have compromising material and information on Trump’s personal life and finances.
After news reports were published about the briefing, Trump tweeted in all caps: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”
