The Russian Government is denying it has compromising information about President-Elect Donald Trump saying the allegations were “pulp fiction”.
Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, said the allegations that Russia had compromising information was an “attempt to harm our bilateral relationship.”
A CNN report came out Tuesday that claimed President-Elect Donald Trump was briefed that Russian operatives had compromising personal and financial information about him.
“No, the Kremlin does not have ‘Kompromat’ on Trump,” Peskov said during a conference call Wednesday, referring to the CNN report. “The information does not correspond to reality and it is complete fiction.”
“The fabrication of such lies in terms of the previous open part of the report, and this one which is a comparable lie, it’s called pulp fiction in English.”
“Clearly there are those who are creating hysteria, who are trying to support this witch hunt, and President-elect Trump himself described it like this.”
