A dossier of unverified information published during the presidential transition alleged that Russia had sought to compile compromising information on Trump.
“Well, this is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from? Why, did we have some special relationship with him? We didn’t have any relationship at all,” the Russian president said.
Putin said he never met with Trump during the latter’s visits to Moscow, adding that a lot of Americans and companies come to Russia and saying the country doesn’t gather information on them.
