MOSCOW, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- The Kremlin on Wednesday denied that it has "compromising materials" on U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, saying that the "fake claims" are another attempt to harm Russia-U.S. relations.
"Such information is nothing but an absolute fantasy," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
U.S. media have reported that Moscow allegedly has compromising materials on Trump.
Trump Wednesday dismissed the claim, branding it as "a total political witch hunt" in a tweet.
