Labour leader declines to reveal source of documents but says PM has questions to answer on Russian donations

Jeremy Corbyn declined to disclose the source of documents used as evidence that the NHS would be “on the table” in a post-Brexit UK-US trade deal, after Reddit told of a link to a Russian interference campaign.
