In an interview broadcast on Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin denied having knowledge of an alleged secret dossier with compromising information on President Trump.

“This is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from? Why, did we have some special relationship with him?” Putin told NBC’s Megyn Kelly on the premiere of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.”

"We didn’t have any relationship at all. There was a time when he used to come to Moscow. But you know, I never met with him.”

The alleged dossier claims that Russia’s government possesses compromising financial and personal information about Trump. It also claims that people close to then-candidate Trump were in contact with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“We have a lot of Americans who visit us,” the Russian leader said.

“Right now I think we have representatives from a hundred different American companies that have come to Russia. Do you think we’re gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Are you all, have you all lost you senses over there?” Putin asked, pushing back on Kelly’s question.

Trump has also pushed back against the dossier, saying claims of it were generated by “sick people.”
