    Feb.15, NY: US President Donald Trump has dismissed media reports on alleged communications between his aides and Russian intelligence as “nonsense” meant to cover up the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the election.

    US President Donald Trump has dismissed media reports on alleged communications between his aides and Russian intelligence as “nonsense” meant to cover up the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the election.

    “This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign,” Trump tweeted.

    Trump also reiterated his criticism of alleged informants in the US intelligence community who leaked classified information to the media.

    The remarks came after the New York Times and CNN ran a story based on anonymous sources, which claimed that several associates of Trump had regular contacts with officers of the Russian intelligence and other Russian officials during his election campaign.

    The Kremlin earlier described the story as “laughable” and lacking verifiable facts.
