Today (Wednesday), Russia claimed that the reports about Moscow possessing sensitive personal and financial information about US President-elect Donald Trump, which could compromise him once he enters the White House, are baseless. The Kremlin claimed that the reports are part of an attempt to harm the ties between Russia and America just a few days before Trump is set to enter the White House.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said during a press conference that the report is a “complete fabrication” and denied the existence of a file containing “sensitive information” about the next US president.

As reported earlier by JOL, US President Barack Obama and Trump were briefed last week about classified documents compiled by the leaders of the US intelligence community, according to CNN. The documents included claims about Russia possessing this information and evidence indicating that Trump’s campaign team was in contact with the Russian government.

The information included in the briefings came from a source that the intelligence agencies defined as reliable. Trump’s transition team refused to comment on the matter. However, the US president-elect tweeted: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT.”
