Putin dismisses US claims about Trump, Russia and elections

On Sunday, Megyn Kelly debuted her new NBC show Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly with an interview of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Behind the anchor's chair, nobody really knows what's on Megyn Kelly's feet, but the new NBC journalist will likely be donning sky-high stiletto heels on her new program "Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly", airing Sundays on the network at 7 p.m. ET.

Putin also refuted claims that he had links with former US National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

In an interview on American television last night, the Russian president - who denies any involvement in the hacking of email accounts of top Democrats that many believe helped swing the November vote in Mr Trump's favour - said USA spies could be have been behind the data theft. "Good job. Your lives must be boring", he lashed out.

But the most notable thing about Putin this week, was when he admitted, on neither of above mentioned programs, for the very first time, that Russian citizens may have been involved in hacking the USA election.

'Put your finger anywhere on a map of the world, and everywhere you will hear complaints that American officials are interfering in internal electoral processes.

Russian Federation is ready to listen to comments that are constructive with the goal of establishing a relationship "but we will absolutely not accept when these sorts of things are used as an instrument of political conflict", he said.

While the morning-after reviews are all going to focus on what she did or didn't get from Putin, I think the real news here is that NBC might finally have a winning newsmagazine.

But unlike her nice-nice interview with Trump during a prime-time special for Fox during the election, here she pushed Putin until he got testy.

Finally, recalling that there are many diplomatic channels, in places like the United Nations, where diplomats, politicians and experts of all stripes can establish informal channels of dialogue to engage in negotiations, Bezpalko noted that in the U.S., as far as Russian Federation is concerned anyway, those rules don't seem to apply. "This is nonsense. Do you understand what you are asking me or not?"

He added: "Do you think we're gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something?"

While acknowledging no "smoking gun at this point", Warner said he wants "to know what kind of pressure, appropriate, inappropriate, how many conversations he had with the president about this topic". "But the main policy track does not change", Putin said.

In his May 9 letter firing Comey, Trump said the former FBI director had informed him "on three separate occasions that I am not under investigation".

Flynn has declined to testify to the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee about his Russian ties, invoking his constitutional right to avoid self-incrimination.

Russian Federation ended up becoming a key factor not only in the U.S. election campaign, but in United States political life in general.

According to TV Line, Vladimir Putin told Megyn Kelly that hundreds of representatives from American companies visited Russian Federation, adding "Do you think we're gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something?"

He said he never met Trump on any of his trips to Moscow.
