In a series of Twitter posts on Wednesday, US President-elect Donald Trump expressed anger regarding the reports claiming that Russian intelligence has embarrassing material about him. "Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!", he tweeted. Trump's patience regarding his country's intelligence services seems to have run out, as he said in a following tweet that "Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?"
The Kremlin also denied the reports, with the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin calling them a complete fabrication and utter nonsense.
