PUTIN (via translator): "Yeah, I did hear these rumors that we allegedly collected compromising material on Mr. Trump when he was visiting Moscow. Distinguished colleagues, let me tell you this, when President Trump was in Moscow back then, I did not even know he was in Moscow. I treat President Trump with utmost respect, but back then, when he was a private individual, a businessman, nobody informed me that he was in Moscow. But let’s take the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, for instance. There were over 500 American businessmen, high-level ones. I do not even remember the last names of each and every one of them. Do you think that we tried to collect compromising material on each and every single one of them? It is difficult to imagine nonsense on a bigger scale than this. Please, just disregard these issues and do not think about this anymore.”
