Putin says he 'didn't really even talk' to ex-Trump adviser Flynn

On the inaugural episode of her new NCB show, Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, Megyn Kelly asked Putin, "Do you have something damaging on our President?"

Trump has also pushed back against the dossier, saying claims of it were generated by "sick people".

Putin said that he practically did not talk to Flynn, and learned about the fact that Flynn had previously had a relationship with the USA special services later.

The Russian leader was quoted as saying by TV Line that he had not seen any proof of his country's interference during the US election and the USA intelligence officials had been misled.

Putin said he did not meet with Trump when the president, then a private citizen, visited Moscow on business trips.

NBC's "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" had 6.1 million total viewers, putting it behind ABC's NBA Finals pregame coverage and a "60 Minutes" rerun on CBS.

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

"I made my speech, then we talked about some other stuff, and I got up and left".

And I'm not proud of what happened. "I should not have treated that reporter that way, and for that I'm sorry Mr". The Guardian posted an audio clip in which Gianforte can be heard saying he was "sick and exhausted of you guys".

Putin's responses, similar to past defenses the Russian president has given to US election charges, left many watching the interview "disappointed", said Pritha Paul at the International Business Times.

Mr Comey's associates have alleged that Mr Trump asked the FBI director if he could drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his Russian contacts. "You created a sensation out of nothing, and you turned it into a weapon of war against the current president".

If that sounds a bit like Mr Putin is travelling up "Imagination Lane", he offered up another conspiratorial spectacular last week, when he was asked whether Russian Federation was responsible for a chemical weapons attack in northern Syria back in April.

He said if there had been anything interesting to come out of the meeting, his foreign minister would have reported it to him.

"Therefore, if we were to discuss some kind of political and social justice, then probably that electoral legislation needs to be changed and bring a situation where the head of state would be elected by direct secret ballot and so there will be direct tabulation of votes that can be easily monitored", he said.

As the Senate prepared for Comey's appearance, Trump appeared unlikely to try to block him for testifying.

Case in point: Kelly asked the Russian leader about what went on into alleged meetings between USA ambassador Sergey Kislyak and members of the Trump campaign, which are now under FBI investigation under Special Counsel Robert Mueller. On Sunday, Senator Roy Blunt, a Missouri Republican and a member of the intelligence committee, said the president would be "better served by getting all this information out". An American user even went as far as calling Putin "my president" in his tweet, insinuating that the POTUS was simply following the instructions given to him by the Russian leader. "That's the extent of my acquaintance with Flynn". That committee is expected to listen to Comey's testimony about the investigation into Russia's alleged election meddling past year and Comey's private conversations with the president.
