Russian President Vladimir Putin clarified his statement regarding Russian “patriotic” hackers meddling in the U.S. election, saying hackers could have done it from any number of countries, including from inside the U.S. itself. More of the interview airs Sunday at 7/6c during the premiere of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.”

Sub for more: nnn.is/the_new_media | Randy DeSoto for Western Journalism reports, Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared to grow at times both impatient and amused with Megyn Kelly when she peppered him with questions about his country’s alleged efforts to influence the U.S. presidential election. The Russian pulled out his earpiece multiple times during questioning.

Megyn Kelly sets her sights on Putin and making a name for her new show on NBC. However, it appears that Kelly has made a name for herself, but probably not in the way she wanted. She looked her sexiest best, but Putin did not seem to notice. What Kelly does not know about Putin is he is a man with a firm taste for a certain type of woman. He loves beautiful women, but he admires women with intelligence and a noble presence. I am sure Kelly did not have a clue that Putin was laughing at her behind her back, but he also openly mocked her.
The interview was fascinating I must admit. Putin was at his personal best, and he was amusing but very serious and stern. He suggested that perhaps the American intelligence services were behind the hacking and were blaming Russia for an unspecified reason. He also attacked Kelly and the press for raising those questions.
You have created a sensation out of nothing. And out of this sensation you created a weapon of war against the president,” he said, referring to Trump. “You people over there … good job. Your lives must be boring.” To me this was the absolute best part of the interview!
He also had an equally feisty reaction when asked if he had a dossier of information on Trump that he was using to blackmail the president.
“Well this just another load of nonsense,” he said. “Where would we get this information from? There was a time when he used to come to Moscow but, you know, I never met him. Do you think we’re gathering information on all of the [Americans visiting the U.S. on business]. Have you all lost your sense over there?”
The leader also downplayed any interaction he had with former U.S. National Security Advisor Michael Flynn when asked about an image the pair sitting together at a dinner for a Russian television network in Dec. 2015.
“When I came to the event for our company, Russia Today, and sat down at the table, next to me there was a gentleman sitting on one side,” Putin said of Flynn. “I made my speech. Then we talked about some other stuff. And I got up and left. And then afterwards I was told, ‘You know there was an American gentleman. He was involved in some things. He used to be in the security services’ … that’s it. I didn’t even really talk to him… That’s the extent of my acquaintance with Mr. Flynn.”
When Kelly asked about Russian interference in the election during the panel, Putin likened the accusations to prejudice.
“It reminds me of anti-Semitism,” he said, per the Associated Press. “A dumb man who can’t do anything would blame the Jews for everything.”
Although he continued to deny his country’s role in election meddling on Friday, he proclaimed during the forum that hacking is so easy, Kelly’s “underage daughter” could do it.
“IP addresses can be invented — a child can do that!” he also said, per NBC News. “Your underage daughter could do that. That is not proof.”

In a very important segment of the in interview, he alleges that the U.S. intelligence community does not have evidence to back up its conclusion that Russia tried to swing the election. Most intelligent citizens of the US know this is a fact.
Through a live translation in the televised interview with NBC News’ Megyn Kelly, Putin alleged that U.S. spies have “no specific evidence, no facts, just assumptions and allegations” to back their conclusion that the Kremlin attempted to assist Donald Trump in the election.
The FBI, CIA and NSA concluded in a January report that Putin’s regime used hackers, Kremlin agencies and paid online “trolls” to undermine the U.S. election and help Trump win. Congress and the FBI are investigating that alleged effort and possible ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
Trump has dismissed the ongoing investigation as “a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election.”
Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News.

In the interview at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, a visibly irritated Putin also denied reports that the Trump team had moved to lift the sanctions in place against Russia.
He said that “this hysteria” about Trump and Russia “never seems to stop” and asked if a “pill” existed to stop the hysteria.
Putin contended that there were “no agreements whatsoever” to lift sanctions.
In its final days, the Obama administration imposed additional sanctions on Moscow in response to accusations by U.S. intelligence agencies and others that Russian had tried to subvert the election.
The U.S. and European countries already had sanctions in place against Russia for pressing a war in Ukraine and then annexing the Ukrainian province of Crimea.
I am interested in Russia’s opinion of the Seth Rich murder, and the following is what I have discovered:
Last July, the same month Rich died, WikiLeaks published thousands of Democratic Party emails which showed the Democratic National Committee violated its own charter that pledges neutrality by working for Hillary Clinton against her primary challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
After the DNC emails were leaked, Clinton and other Democrats immediately blamed Russia for hacking their computers, but the DNC refused to allow the FBI to examine its computer servers to see who might have hacked in.
Instead the DNC turned to a private company, CrowdStrike, to investigate. The company – linked to the anti-Russian think tank, the Atlantic Council – concluded that Russia was behind the hack. The company said it was a sophisticated attack but also that the hackers sloppily left behind Cyrillic script and the name of the first Soviet chief of secret police – clues cited to pin the hack on Russia.
Russia and WikiLeaks have both denied that Russia was the source of the leaked emails.
William Binney, arguably one of the best mathematicians ever to work at the National Security Agency, and former CIA officer Ray McGovern, have argued that the emails must have come from a leak because a hack would be traceable by the NSA.
More speculation about the alleged election hack was raised after WikiLeaks’ “Vault 7” release, which revealed that the CIA is not beyond covering up its own hacks by leaving clues implicating others.
After Trump’s election victory, President Obama’s intelligence agencies also pinned the blame for the DNC and other Democratic-connected leaks on Russia and depicted the leaks as part of a Russian government scheme to hurt the Clinton campaign and thus boost Donald Trump.
But the Jan. 6 report by selected analysts at the FBI, CIA and NSA – and released by Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper – offered no hard evidence of Russian guilt, merely intelligence “assessments.”
Now, the email mystery has taken a new turn. While the Seth Rich murder case remains unsolved, a private detective hired by an anonymous third party for Rich’s family has spoken out, saying there is evidence on Seth Rich’s computer indicating that he was in touch with WikiLeaks.
Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective, also told the local Washington Fox TV affiliate on Monday night that a police source told him the detectives were ordered to back off the murder investigation, a claim that D.C. police denied.
The FBI told the Washington Post it is a matter for the D.C. police. But Wheeler believes Rich’s computer may be in the custody of the FBI. It is not clear exactly what role, if any, the FBI has played in the Seth Rich murder case, an FBI that joined in the effort to blame Russia and was under the command of Director James Comey until he was fired by President Trump on May 9.
Following Wheeler’s assertions to the local Fox station, an unnamed federal investigator reportedly told Fox network news that the FBI inspected Rich’s computer within 96 hours of his murder. The investigator told Fox he had read through the emails, which he claimed numbered 45,053 as well as 17,761 attachments. Such exact numbers appear to lend credibility to the claim, though it is not out of the question that they could have been fabricated to match the number of items believed given to WikiLeaks.
According to the Fox News report, the investigator also said the emails and attachments had been sent among DNC leaders between January 2015 and May 2016. He said Rich sent the emails and attachments to Gavin MacFadyen, an American journalist, filmmaker and director of WikiLeaks in London. MacFadyen died not too long after Seth Rich was murdered.
The dead cannot talk, but the living must speak for them.
So, what does Russia think of the Seth Rich murder?

The Russian Embassy’s tweet comes days after Rod Wheeler, a private investigator working on behalf of Rich’s family, told a Fox affiliate there was evidence that Rich had communicated with WikiLeaks. A day later, on Tuesday, Fox News reported that a “federal investigator” had corroborated Wheeler’s account, and that an FBI analysis of Rich’s computer showed he had transferred the 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments to Gavin MacFadyen, a man who had ties to WikiLeaks before he died last October.

Synopsis: There is a new petition up on WhiteHouse.gov to appoint a Special Prosecutor to do something really productive – investigate the murder of Seth Rich.
Yesterday, congressman, Blake Farenthold, (R-TX), called for a Special Prosecutor to look into the mysterious circumstances swirling around Seth Rich’s murder.
Farenthold said on CNN on Wednesday:
“My fear is our constant focusing on the Russians is deflecting away for some other things that we need to be investigating.”
“There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or it was the Russians.”
Others in Washington are coming to the same conclusion. According to Sean Hannity:
“This issue, it’s so big now that the entire Russia collusion narrative is hanging by a thread.”
According to former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich:
”… we have this very strange story now of this young man who worked for the Democratic National Committee who apparently was assassinated at 4 in the morning, having given WikiLeaks something like … 53,000 emails – and 17,000 attachments.”
“Nobody is investigating that. And what does that tell you about what was going on? Because it turns out, it wasn’t the Russians. It was this young guy who, I suspect, was disgusted by the corruption of the Democratic National Committee.”
“He’s been killed, and apparently, nothing serious has been done to investigate his murder.”
In conclusion, we now know, Fox News’ Hannity had to retract his work on the Seth Rich murder, as they are being harassed by the Liberals and the DNC. If the Liberals did not have something to hide, they would not be protesting the free speech of Hannity on Fox News. Think about that.
“You and I, you and I personally, have a much closer relationship than I had with Mr. Flynn.
You and I met yesterday evening. You and I have been working together all day today. And now we’re meeting again”.
Putin then explained how the meeting he randomly had with Flynn was far less significant,
“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. I made my speech. Then we talked about some other stuff. And I got up and left. And then afterwards I was told, ‘You know there was an American gentleman. He was involved in some things. He used to be in the security services,’ That’s it. I didn’t even really talk to him”.
He clinched the argument, stating,
“If Mr. Flynn and I had this kind of interaction, while you and I, we have spent an entire day together, and Mr. Flynn was fired from his job, you then should be arrested and put in jail”.
Putin also slammed Kelly for her tired remarks on continued allegations of ‘Russian interference’ in the US election by Donald Trump’s opponents.
“This isn’t for us to get into, these are your domestic political squabbles. So you deal with them. Nothing to talk about… I just find it amazing how you created a sensation where there wasn’t anything at all. And proceeded to turn that sensation into a tool for fighting the sitting president. You know, you’re just very resourceful people there, well done, probably your lives there are boring”.
Putin also refuted the rather ludicrous claim that he is personally orchestrated the entire non-existent conspiracy, saying,
“The ambassador’s boss is the foreign minister. Do you think I have the time to talk to our ambassadors all over the world every day? This is nonsense”.
