Putin denies United States election meddling, says he barely met Mike Flynn

"Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russian Federation", he said.

On her premiere episode, Kelly got the first exclusive interview with Russian leader Vladimir Putin since US officials started investigating his ties to the November election.

No, he had no idea whether or not Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser, tried to establish a "back channel" of communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States. A secret line with Russia - which H.R. McMaster said is a normal thing in diplomatic relations with worldwide counterparties - could have allowed the Trump transition team and Russian officials to communicate outside of the scrutiny of the departing Obama administration.

Flynn has become a central figure in investigations by Congress and the FBI into potential ties to Russian Federation by the Trump administration and his campaign.

Comey is also likely to be asked by lawmakers about Trump's assertion that the former FBI chief told him three times that he was not under investigation as part of the federal probe into his campaign's possible Russian Federation ties.

"Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russia", Putin said.

Kelly said things "quickly became heated when I asked President Putin about Russia's attempts to hack the 2016 election".

"Had there been anything significant he would have reported it to the minister". He said that it was convenient for the hackers to blame the Russians in the midst of a political battle. He said invoking executive privilege would be on "shaky legal ground" and stressed that Comey deserved to have his "day in court" after repeated attacks by Trump and reports of undue pressure.

Putin's denial follows reports claiming alleged links between Trump's election campaign and Moscow.

Open. "I could BS you and tell you I don't think about it", Mickelson said. "My daughter is ... the school president". Open so he can attend his daughter Amanda's high school graduation ceremony near their San Diego home.

As far as the findings of USA intelligence agencies, Putin said, "They have been misled". I longed for one of the incredulous reactions 60 Minutes correspondents like Mike Wallace and Ed Bradley were famous for when an interview source told a whopper, saying "come on" with a look that told the viewer they weren't buying what they were just told.

"It's wonderful for me: you've made a sensation out of nothing and turned it into a tool to struggle against the sitting president".

Ultimately, Bezpalko suggested the ongoing anti-Russian witch-hunt in United States politics and the media would be hard to describe as anything other than a 'wild bout of hysteria'.

While Kelly did give it a good effort on the "Russian/Trump" collusion issue, there was really only one question which I was interested in hearing Putin get asked, and yet Kelly apparently failed to ask it. "That's the extent of my acquaintance with Flynn". As a reminder, the payments Flynn received from RT, and his appearance next to Putin at the dinner, have been raised frequently amid speculation about his relationship with the Kremlin. "They can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, onto Russian Federation". For instance, "Do you have something on our president?" she asked as if she expected him to break down, knock back a vodka and fess up.

Pictures show the two men at a table for 10 at an event sponsored by Russian television network Russia Today (RT), which French President Emmanuel Macron has denounced as a source of "lying propaganda" in the recent French election and U.S. officials consider a state-run propaganda outlet and purveyor of disinformation about the US.

Trump's election over Clinton was a "big surprise" to him. The U.S. intelligence agencies who say Moscow was involved "have been misled", Putin said.

In an interview, Putin suggested patriotic Russian hackers are just artistic types looking for inspiration, like an improve troupe who said, "All we need is a location to get started", and someone in the audience shouts, "Inside the email center at the DNC!" Putin noted that executives from perhaps 100 American companies were now in Russian Federation.

He added, "At this point I honestly kind of hope Putin does have a golden-shower tape of him".
