Didn't even really talk to him: Putin on Flynn

Russian President Vladimir Putin gestures as he speaks at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg Russia. Putin is dismissing as Didn't even really talk to him: Putin on Flynn
Andrew Cummings | 13 June, 2017, 11:47

"I'm being honest. Do you think that from all over the world and the United States, the ambassador reports to me every day who he eats with or meets with", said Putin.

The inaugural episode of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly featured an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin who didn't say much of anything.

Comey, ousted last month amid the FBI investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation, is set to testify Thursday before the Senate intelligence committee.

Asked whether all 17 US intelligence agencies that concluded Russian Federation interfered with the election are lying, Putin said “they have been misled” and said he has not seen “any direct proof of Russias interference.”.

Mr Trump has also disparaged a dossier of unsubstantiated allegations that purported to show Russian intelligence operatives had compromising information about him - describing it as a "hoax".

Russian President Vladimir Putin dismisses the allegation that Russians meddled in the USA election.

The intelligence committee has asked to review that memo and any other notes Comey put together on his private meetings with Trump, although Warner said that would likely have to be cleared by Robert Mueller, another former FBI director now overseeing the bureau's investigation as special counsel.

Putin simply dismissed the Kremlin's have compromising information on Trump, saying, "Are you all..."

Putin also said he had no idea if the Russian ambassador to Washington had held contacts with the Trump campaign before the November election.

"There was a time when he used to come to Moscow", he said.

"I will tell you something that you probably already know".

Comey, who was leading the Federal Bureau of Investigation's probe into alleged Russian meddling in last year's United States presidential election, was sacked by Trump last month, four years into his 10-year term.

"You people are so creative over there, good job", Putin told Kelly.

Putin was asked about reports of long-standing corruption and repression of dissent in Russian Federation. That's complete nonsense. Do you even understand what you're asking or not?

According to one memo that Comey wrote, Trump personally appealed to Comey in a February meeting to abandon the investigation into Flynn and his Russian contacts, said a person who had read the notes.

President Putin stated in no uncertain terms that "there were no meetings" between himself and President Trump and that they "did not have any relationship at all" with him and were not holding any kind of information that could reflect negatively on him.

The Senate intelligence committee has also invited the top spy of the United States and law enforcement officials to give evidence on Wednesday at a hearing about the federal law governing foreign intelligence collection. "You created a sensation out of nothing, and out of this sensation, you turned it into a weapon of war against the current president", Putin told Kelly.

"When I came to the event for our company, Russia Today, and sat down at the table, next to me, there was a gentleman sitting on one side", Mr Putin said.

In the NBC interview, Mr Putin was asked about reports of Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner's attempt to set up a secret communications channel with Russian Federation.

"This isn't for us to get into, these are your domestic political squabbles".

He also rejected claims that Russian Federation interfered in the election.

"Does Mr. Comey agree that that is what was said?"
