Putin denies knowledge of Jared Kushner's back channel proposal

Russian President Vladimir Putin denies any knowledge of Jared Kushner's alleged proposal to open a secret back channel to the Russian government, according to an interview with Megyn Kelly that aired Sunday. Kelly's interview with Putin was devoted to the same subject nearly entirely.

Kelly evidenced some of these traits in the debut episode of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.

Comey is also likely to be asked by lawmakers about Trump's assertion that the former FBI chief told him three times that he was not under investigation as part of the federal probe into his campaign's possible Russian Federation ties. "Just nuts... We don't care who is the head of the United States". He pointed to the USA intelligence agencies as being behind the dastardly rumors, adding that they were undoubtedly involved in the JFK assassination as well. "There's a theory that Kennedy's assassination was arranged by the United States intelligence services", he explained.

Putin's coy remark about patriotic Russian hackers added to concerns about that country's connection to the Trump administration.

Putin also shot down Kelly's one non-election related question about his reputation for killing journalists and dissidents.

President Putin said "no proposal like that came to me" involving Mr. Kushner and that it would have been reported to him if there had been "anything significant". "There were no meetings", he said first. "I don't know the routine job of an ambassador".

But Kelly pressed "No meetings between Ambassador Kislyak and anybody from the Trump campaign?" "You created a sensation out of nothing".

"Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russian Federation". Do you think we're gathering information on all of the [Americans visiting the USA on business].

"Here it turns out that any contact with Russian representatives causes a wild barrage of hysteria; this has been turned into perhaps the main instrument in United States politics", the expert concluded.

The Washington Post, commenting on Vladimir Putin's answers to Megyn Kelly's questions during the SPIEF plenary session, wrote that Putin was rude to the U.S. journalist. "This is nonsense. Do you understand what you are asking me or not?" "They aren't analyzing the information in its entirety".

Other than that, Megyn Kelly was also bashed by social media when she asked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he was Twitter.

The ensuing one-on-one interview didn't produce any revelations.

This made some users allude to the notion that Trump and Putin were acting in each other's interests.

Kelly was also criticized for skipping any questions on the prosecution of the LGBT community going on in Chechnya, Russia. One suspects that the old Kelly, from Fox News, would have gleefully litigated the point. On Sunday, the tots talked about rude behavior and how they "never get into arguments".

Though a secret communications line was never established, the report raises questions amidst accusations that President Donald Trump and his team colluded with Russian Federation circulate. "Presidents come and go, and even the parties in power change, but the main political direction does not change". And those who remember Brian Williams' ill-fated newsmagazine Rock Center know how tough it is for a news program without an identity to succeed. "And now it seems that not only may that happen, but we're not really expecting much in return", Oliver said.
