I don't care, says Putin on alleged United States election interference

According to investigative reporters Michael Isikoff's and David Corn's new book, "Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump", the White House director of cybersecurity, Michael Daniel, was particularly concerned when he learned in June that Russian actors had infiltrated critical election infrastructure in several U.S. states.

Putin, in a previously aired clip of his interview with Kelly, said he will "never" extradite the 13 Russians who Mueller charged in his probe. Putin said, according to an NBC translator, when asked about the Russian individuals and Russian-owned companies that were indicted last month by special counsel Robert Mueller. "Maybe they're Ukrainians, Tatars, Jews - just with a Russian citizenship".

A source familiar with the matter did not contest the characterization, but said the Obama administration "timed its response so as to not provoke the Russians into materially affecting the outcome of the election".

In 2016, Vladimir Putin ordered nuclear war drill involving 40 million Russians and 200,000 specialist rescue units.

"I don't care", Putin responded.

"I could not care less". The TV presenter asked if the Russian president could "pardon" Alexey Navalny, so that he could compete in elections.

On Friday's broadcast of MSNBC's "Hardball", NBC anchor Megyn Kelly previewed her forthcoming NBC special "Confronting Putin" and stated that she thinks "there's a very good chance Putin knows some things about Donald Trump that Mr. Trump does not want repeated publicly". "And we'll take a look at it".

The book will go into detail on Russian interference in the election process and will go on sale on March 13, 2018.

"Could anyone really believe that Russian Federation, thousands of miles away, influenced the outcome of the election? Doesn't that sound ridiculous even to you?" he said. "There's no goal", Putin said. "I do not know, either", he added.

Putin, who faces re-election this year, again denied charges by USA intelligence agencies that he ordered the interference. If there is this decision to destroy Russian Federation then we have a legal right to respond'.

Trump himself has repeatedly refused to condemn Russian Federation over the alleged meddling, and has said he admires Putin as a strong leader. Throughout the interview, Putin continued to dismiss the claims that the meddling had come at the orders of the Russian government. We don't see what goal we can reach by doing something like that.
