USA intelligence agencies concluded past year that Russian Federation used hacking and leaking of emails in an effort to harm Clinton and help Trump.
Senior U.S. intelligence officials have also told NBC News that Putin was personally involved in the Russian effort to interfere with the U.S. election and how the information was used.
"I asked him all about Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law, and what connections they have had and what they have discussed, and I asked him specifically about somebody else very much in the news, and that is President Trump's now fired national security adviser, General Michael Flynn", Kelly said on NBC, previewing her exclusive interview with the Russian president. A special counsel appointed by the Justice Department as well as congressional committees are investigating.
That's the view of Sen. He was also recently subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee, as was his lobbying firm, Flynn Intel Group.
Putin also continued to deny that Russian Federation was involved in any way with the hacking of the Democratic National Committee's email servers previous year.
Blunt says "let's find out what happened and bring this to a conclusion".
News has released another clip of Megyn Kelly's interview with Vladimir Putin, this time focused on Michael Flynn. Then we talked about some other stuff. "There can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States, who very skillfully shifted the blame, as we say, onto Russian Federation".
Warner spoke on CNN's "State of the Union" and CBS' "Face the Nation". James Comey - who was sacked from his post as FBI director by Trump in May - told a congressional committee in March that the Federal Bureau of Investigation also was investigating "whether there was any coordination" with Trump's campaign.
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". Trump's known to change his mind on major issues.
President Putin stated in no uncertain terms that "there were no meetings" between himself and President Trump and that they "did not have any relationship at all" with him and were not holding any kind of information that could reflect negatively on him.
For Thursday's hearing, Trump could invoke executive privilege by arguing that discussions with Comey pertained to national security and that he had an expectation of privacy in getting candid advice from top aides. Some legal experts say Trump likely undermined those arguments because he's discussed the conversations in tweets and interviews.
