MOSCOW (Reuters) - Allegations of Russian cyber attacks are fabricated, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday. 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.

Billionaire Wilbur Ross, chosen by Donald Trump to help implement the president-elect's trade agenda, earned his fortune in part by running businesses that have offshored thousands of U.S. jobs, according to Labor Department data attained by Reuters. As a high-stakes investor a decade ago, Ross specialized in turning around troubled manufacturing companies at a time when the U.S. economy was losing more than 100,000 jobs yearly due to global trade. Supporters say Ross saved thousands of U.S. jobs by rescuing firms from failure.
