Trump denies claims of Russian 'leverage'

Trump denies claims of Russian 'leverage'

US President-elect Donald Trump has reacted furiously to allegations that Russia has compromising ma­terial on him, saying Moscow has “never tried to use leverage on me”.
Mr. Trump condemned US intelligence agencies for allowing “fake news” to “leak” into the public, asking: “Are we living in Nazi Germany?”
The claims say his election campaign communicated with Moscow and also con­tain suggestions of prostitute use.
Russia also angrily denied the claims.
Dmitry Peskov, President Vladimir Pu­tin’s spokesman, said the allegations were “pulp fiction” and a “clear attempt to dam­age relations”.
