Russia has denied allegations that the Kremlin collected compromising information about U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.
Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, dismissed news reports as a ‘complete fabrication and utter nonsense.’
U.S. officials allegedly included a two-page synopsis of ‘kompromat’ – Russian for compromising material – as part of their security briefing of Trump on Friday.
The document claims Russian sources told the operative that they had extensive material on the now president-elect – including a secret film of him in the suite where President Obama stayed in Moscow, watching prostitutes committing degrading sex acts on the bed where the president slept.
But Peskov insisted that the Kremlin ‘does not engage in collecting compromising material’.
