Krem­lin file is ‘hoax’

The Star Late Edition - - WORLD -

MOSCOW: The Krem­lin said it had no com­pro­mis­ing ma­te­rial on US Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump or his de­feated Demo­cratic ri­val Hil­lary Clin­ton and said an un­sub­stan­ti­ated dossier which said it did had been fab­ri­cated and was “to­tal non­sense”.

Krem­lin spokesper­son Dmitry Peskov said the dossier was a hoax which had been dreamt up to fur­ther dam­age US-Rus­sia re­la­tions.

US of­fi­cials said on Tues­day that Trump had been pre­sented with doc­u­ments which con­tained claims that Rus­sia had com­pro­mis­ing in­for­ma­tion on him.
