Vladimir Putin: US interferes in elections, not Russian Federation

Trump has called an FBI investigation into alleged ties between his campaign and Russian Federation a "witch hunt" created to undermine the legitimacy of his 2016 election win.

He had similar dismissive answers to Kelly's questions about Michael Flynn, Trump's national security adviser who was sacked after a brief stint in the White House.

The Virginia Democrat and other committee members are set to hear from fired FBI Director James Comey at a hearing Thursday.

Step by step, Putin dismantled the assumptions behind the liberal narrative that Donald Trump had close connections with Russian Federation, and that Putin has leverage over the president.

The line was never established, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter. Mr Trump is known to change his mind on major issues.

On Sunday, lawmakers from both parties urged Trump not to stand in the way of Comeys testimony.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is now conducting an investigation into Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 Presidential election, including whether there could have been any connection to associates of the Trump campaign. He also attacked Kelly and the press for raising those questions.

This charge - and even more damning suggestions that the Trump administration actually colluded in such an effort - are at the core of a high stakes probe by a U.S. special counsel and congressional committees.

The Russian leader was quoted as saying by TV Line that he had not seen any proof of his country's interference during the USA election and the US intelligence officials had been misled. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also are expected to testify. And, they aren't analyzing the information in its entirety.

Trump could argue that discussions with Comey pertained to national security and had an expectation of privacy.

Legal experts have also said that the president likely undermined his ability to assert executive privilege by publicly discussing his dealings with Comey in tweets and interviews. Trump's decision sent shockwaves across Washington, a virtually unprecedented move that came as Comey was heading an investigation into Team Trump's links to Russian Federation.

A widely-posted photo of the event has fuelled speculation about possible links between US President Donald Trump's administration and the Kremlin.

"Why do you feel you have the right to ask us these kinds of questions? Why would he tell the president that?"

The veteran journalist's interview with Putin marked her NBC debut, but it was clear from the start that Kelly wasn't quite able to wrangle any answers out of the enigmatic leader.

"The tone, the exact words that were spoken and the context are so important", Collins said.

"Where would we get this information?"
