  • Officials say Trump may not try to block Comey's testimony

"Given that Flynn was eventually forced to step down and is now under Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutiny, Putin continued, ".you then should be arrested and put in jail" for having spent an entire day with the Russian politician.

"After the speech he gave, he continued, ".we talked about something else, then I got up and left". "Are you all - have you all lost your senses over there?"

President Donald Trump is leaning against invoking executive privilege to try to block fired FBI Director James Comey from testifying about their private conversations regarding an investigation into Trump's former national security adviser, two administration officials said Sunday.

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

Moreover, he also addressed the allegation that Russian Federation had meddled in the 2016 US elections.

Trump fired Flynn for failing to disclose that he had met with Russian officials. It also had included disinformation and dissemination of fake news.

Putin said he is "deeply convinced" that no interference from outside in "such a vast and great power" as the USA could influence the final outcome of the elections. "And they aren't analyisng the information in its entirety".

"In addition to it, Putin voiced his profound conviction that "(...) no interference from the outside, in any country, even a small one, let alone in such a vast and great power as the United States, can influence the final outcome of the elections".

Earlier this month, Vladimir Putin told news agencies that Russian Federation had never engaged in hacking another country's elections.

The Washington Post has reported that in a NY meeting in December with the Russian ambassador to Washington, Sergei Kislyak, the 36 year old Kushner suggested setting up a back channel of communications with Moscow.

But if Trump were to lie under oath, and Mueller and his team were able to prove that subsequently, it would constitute perjury. That could serve to rebut Comey's testimony. 'But yes, absolutely I'd be committed to Article 5, ' he said.

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

Putin insisted hackers who stole and disclosed information that turned out to be damaging to the campaign of Hillary Clinton in last year's campaign could have come from anywhere. Putin said he didn't know, and when pressed, he lashed out at Kelly.

"It's just that French journalists asked me about those hackers".

"And then afterwards I was told 'Do you know that was an American gentleman and he was involved in some things?" "They can be in Russian Federation, in Asia.even in America, Latin America".

"Could you accept that?" It was convenient for them to release this information, so they released it, citing Russian Federation. "All of them, all of them point to Russian Federation, and none of them points to anyone other than Russian Federation". Could you imagine something like that?

Did the Russian government interfere in the US election?

Putin was interviewed in St Petersburg, Russia, on the sidelines of an economic forum.

Former CIA director John Brennan said last month he had noticed contacts between Trump's campaign associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 election and grew concerned Moscow had sought to lure Americans down "a treasonous path".
