"That's complete nonsense." Kelly followed up about the reported proposal Kushner made to set up a secure, secret communication channel between the Trump team and the Kremlin, but Putin denied knowing anything about the proposal, ever asking about the proposal, or being interested in the proposal.
He accused the United States media of sensationalizing information and using it as a "weapon of war" against Trump.
President Donald Trump is leaning against invoking executive privilege to try to block fired FBI Director James Comey from testifying about their private conversations regarding an investigation into Trump's former national security adviser, two administration officials said Sunday. (Flynn is part of a federal and congressional investigation into the campaign's ties to the Kremlin.) He told her that she had a closer relationship to him than he had with Flynn.
On the alleged connections with Donald Trump's people and accusations of interference with USA elections had been "selected by someone as a line of attack against the current [US] president", Putin told the NBC host.
"Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russian Federation", he continued.
"Do you think that from all over the world or from the United States the ambassador reports to me every day who he meets with or what they discuss there?" "He used to be in the security services", Putin said. Putin, a former KGB agent, has been painted as the puppet master behind the challenge on November's voting.

U.S. intelligence has accused Russian Federation of interfering in the election by hacking the Democratic Committee's computers and leaking information - a claim that Moscow has repeatedly denied. "I didn't even really talk to him", Putin said.
In a sign of exasperation, Putin compared what he described as the obsessive USA focus on alleged Russian election interference to anti-Semitism.
Mr Putin suggested that skilled hackers anywhere, including the USA, could shift the blame for hacking onto Russian Federation.
Mr Putin said the USA intelligence agencies had been misled over their findings. "Have you all lost your senses over there?" "That's the extent of my acquaintance with Mr. Flynn", Putin said. "But I frankly think we need to hear Mr. Comey's side and find out what other questions we need to ask".
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. "They can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, onto Russian Federation".
