The contacts Flynn and other Trump aides had with Russian officials and bankers are drawing intense scrutiny, particularly after USA intelligence agencies concluded that Russian hackers meddled in the American election. It's not her fault that nothing Putin said was believable.
He accused the U.S. media of sensationalizing information and using it as a "weapon of war" against Trump.
The Russian leader accused the American media of creating the entire controversy about his country interfering in the US election to use it as a weapon against President Donald Trump.
"When I came to the event for our company, Russia Today [RT], and sat down at the table, next to me there was a gentleman sitting on one side".
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?" "Have you all lost your sense over there?"
Flynn, a retired lieutenant general, briefly served as an adviser to Trump's campaign and later as the president's national security adviser.
"There was a time when he used to come to Moscow", he said.
Libya's eastern government cut diplomatic ties with Qatar
The interim government is affiliated with the internationally recognized House of Representatives and is based in eastern Libya. Another internationally recognised Government of National Accord is seated in Tripoli and brokered by the United Nations.
Putin then appeared to defend President Donald Trump by saying, "You created a sensation out of nothing". But you know, I never met with him.
"I made my speech". Without wasting time on niceties, the former Fox News primetime host asked the Russian President a slew of questions that have been the hot topics of discussion in the USA ever since President Donald Trump won the Republican presidential nomination.
USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation meddled in the presidential election to hurt the bid of Democrat Hillary Clinton. Kelly mentioned the Russian "fingerprints" reported by USA intelligence agencies. That's why, in the grand scheme of things, we don't care who is the head of the United States.
Flynn was sacked after less than a month because of revelations that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russia's ambassador to the United States. Still, I applaud NBC and Kelly for directing attention to this bad problem.
Mr Putin stated that it really did not matter to him whether Donald Trump was president because, "the main political direction (of the United States) does not change".
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.
Comey is scheduled to testify Thursday before the Senate intelligence committee.
