Kremlin says Trump allegedly divulging secrets ‘nonsense, not an issue’

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov says the issue of US President Donald Trump allegedly divulging state secrets to Russia is not worth confirming or denying, calling it “nonsense.”

“For us it is not an issue, it’s more nonsense,” Peskov says when asked about the Washington Post report that Trump shared highly classified information during a meeting last week with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. “It’s not an issue for confirming or denying,” Peskov adds.

His comments were made minutes before Trump confirmed the reports on Twitter.
