Megyn Kelly gets off to low-key start on 'Sunday Night'


Putin also argued that the United States "actively interferes" with other countries' elections.

In an interview set to air Sunday, Russia President Vladimir Putin told NBC's Megyn Kelly that hackers that could have influenced the United States of America presidential election might not have come from his home country.And you have to admit she did ask tough questions after hearing her quiz him on whether he had some kind of "damaging" evidence on President Trump and how he responds to allegations that he kills unfriendly journalists.

Flynn is one of a number of current and former Trump associates at the center of investigations into whether anyone close to the president helped Russian Federation interfere in the US election, and whether any crimes were committed.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is now investigating Flynn's ties to foreign governments, and the retired general has been looped into the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of the Trump's campaign alleged Russian Federation relations. The former Fox News anchor's questions would have been explosive had Putin answered any of them with a "yes", but unsurprisingly, he did not confess to rigging the US election or having video of our president enjoying the defilement of a Moscow hotel bed.

But despite all the big headlines generated recently by allegations of untoward contact between Russian representatives and Donald Trump's campaign officials, Kelly's questions to Putin on the subject produced little besides irritated denials.

"Why do you feel you have the right to ask us these kinds of questions?" Why, did we have some special relationship with him?

The Russian President revealed that on all Trump's visits to Moscow, they had never met each other, he said adding that a lot of Americans and companies moved to Russia or visited without the country gathering information on them. And then afterwards I was told, "You know there was an American gentleman, he was involved in some things".

Former FBI director James Comey, who was sacked by Mr Trump fired after allegedly asking him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his Russian contacts, is scheduled to give evidence on Thursday before the Senate's intelligence committee. "You people are so creative over there, good job", Mr Putin added.

Trump's firing of Comey sparked accusations that he was trying to bring an end to the Russian hacking investigation.

"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", Putin told Kelly.

Putin said hackers anywhere in the world, including the United States, could make it seem like the interference came from Russian Federation.

Kelly asked the Russian leader if he "had anything damaging on our president" during an interview that aired on Kelly's Sunday show.

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

Putin also told NBC that regardless of Trump's previous travel to Russian Federation as a businessman, he had had no relationship with him and had never met him. Do you think that from all over the world or from the United States the ambassador reports to me every day who he meets with or what they discuss there?

Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn was forced to resign after he mischaracterized a meeting he had with Kislyak. Mr Trump denies the claims. "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: I didn't even really talk to him.
