Lavrov said at a news conference that U.S. intelligence agencies who had tried to prove that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump had links to Russia have drawn a blank and should be fired.

The Russian minister also described as a charlatan the former British spy who wrote a dossier on Trump’s alleged links to Russia.
