  1. haha you should be a little Scared if Putin is able to change the election in USA with 1mio 😂😂😂.
    btw is all media in USA like this?

  2. USA nobody trust you.. you only put allegations on other countries thats it you make fake news, fake documents you just want Russian down because only one contry can make you kneel down and its necessary because you people can put every country in a war and rule with one law nation..and CIA fk em they killed Kennedy brothers other president and you believe them god open your eyes people Russia is not enemy of USA

  3. Our “ intelligence community “ wouldn’t know Truth if they saw it. Truth isn’t their mission, manipulation is by whatever means necessary including lying to its own population. And Americans know it. They own the Mass media. That’s why people go to YouTubers for the News.

  4. That's very strange: if you admit that some Russian citizen conducted cyberwarfare against USA, you can't say:"I don't care, they could be paid by Americans". That's really suspect. You should say:"I will take the strongest measures against them, once my investigation will confirm this illegal activity". And if you have good will, you should be interested to show to the world you are punishing them, even if they are not "government officials" (rather, mostly for that!). He's not talking in good faith. He's not talking like someone who has the will to cooperate with international community.

  5. The most powerful index finger in the world. Putin's defense console buttons are purposely reinforced by weights so heavy that only he can activate them.

  6. There was once a Chicken reporter used Classified reports made by Chicken Intel. Agency (aka CIA) along with an investigation done by an Independent Chicken lawyer claiming their Chicken President elections was garbage ..

    Let's blame the Ducks ..

  7. I'll tell you who interfered in the elections,our own government, Media and Soros. But with Trump they got out smarted and God intervened. Megan sounds like she still thinks HiLIARy actually won. This interview just goes to show how media giants still push the narrative.

  8. If you think russia really did interfere the election, why not just ask trump instead of flew thousands miles away to ask putin?
    And also this is the first time i see journalist not just ask but judge too. She is so obsessed to be an interrogator like in movies. I don't think she is professional.
    Or maybe it's not russia, maybe nbc did interfere the election? it's making more sense now lol

  9. We (The US) are such hypocrites. We interfere in the politics of other countries every day. Listening to this Megyn Kelly you would think that we are all virgins in pure driven snow.
    If Russia can get away with attempting to undermine our elections, then we need to step up our game a little bit and make it to where they can't do it. If anything, we should be THANKING the Russians for what they did because if it exposed weaknesses, then that's a good thing. We can fix those weaknesses and move on.
    I just get so tired of do US trying to make others believe that we are the overseers and the Bastion of morality, and everything that is pure. What a bunch of baloney. We're as self-centered as the next country, and we will do whatever is in our best interest. If it means applying muscle, will do that, and then deny that we ever knew anything about it.

  10. Who would you believe, Russian who is not known to meddle with other counties affairs or America who is known to be evil liars and always meddling with other countries affairs as if they own it. How arrogant!

  11. America stop interfering with other countries affairs, don't go demanding other countries to do something that you've been doing the same thing to so many counties your country has victimized. Hypocrite!

  12. See That's Such Dishonest Reporting Well Of Course It Happens To Be NBC Which Is Possibly Worse Than CNN Possibly, Possibly, Possibly!

  13. stupid lady…who is this ….this video is a clear example of this country's real attitude which they trying to cover up with funny fairy tales ?

  14. why should just Russians should it be there it does not matter anyway the Americans says that Russia does something wrong but the america like "uhh i don't really do anything bad do i"? this is why the Americans can cause WW3 easily by just saying that Russia does something bad and you need to stop it.

  15. If i was im the olace of putin,i would have probably slapped hard in the face.. How putin is tolerating this.. Da fok news

  16. America should just start disconnecting intelligence agencies from official ties and letting them conduct whatever operations they want in Russia and then say, "hey, they are free citizens. we don't know and don't care what they do to Russia. there aren't any laws here that prohibit interference in Russian affairs; only in American affairs…" "oh and we will protect them and not extradite them if and when they do harm."

  17. I like how every part of this interview has more dislikes than likes. There is hope for peace in the world.
    I am also a big fan of Mr. Vladimir Putin, because in my opinion he is the definition of a strong and at the same time peaceful leader. Very intelligent and and patient man!
    Love and respect eachother people! This is the best way to all human beings!
    Greetings from Bulgaria!

  18. She's being contradictory on almost every statement. The U.S. government does not take care of national crisis the way they want the world to believe. Im canadian and half of the problems being presented are of no concern to us. Justin Trudeau has not completed his obligations to our country either. Every country will poke their noses into the affairs of other countries from now until the end of civilization. Putin is also a supporter of North Korean politics, so that right there isnt okay either. We will never have a period of peace on earth. It is impossible.

  19. so ok if you insist. Russia interfered. So trump is illegitimate president. Then , why are you and fox such a supporter of trump? You should be calling Putin as your POTUS. how about that😂😂

  20. The only reason Pussia would want to interfere if ever … is to show the world what Trump and the likes of you are really are..lying hypocrites

  21. America is souring relations with other countries and forcing their opinion on everybody, and the journalists think that Russia is the aggressor. Get good, America

  22. I from Russia and I’m very thankful to this interview. Putin is a dictator. Everything what she said it is freakin truth!!!!!

  23. The American media call Putin a dictator whilst demanding that he suppress people for the benefit of America. Nothing really new there.

  24. No(!) Some people just don't understand what they're looking at. Putin talked to her before, he wanted to talk to her again, otherwise he wouldn't have been there. He needs these biased questions ánd the stacked criticism. This way he can publicly deflate the allegations against him, question by question. Even if, for some allegations, all he does is show the world, he's not impressed. That's often enough to control the public perception…

  25. I don't understand all of this. Didn't our intelligence service tell us that Russia's motive for interfering in our election was to cause political turmoil in the USA? They could care less who won the election. For goodness sake, we are giving them exactly what they wanted.

    Putin is outfoxing Megan Kelly, and she is enabling him with her behavior. He is doing these interviews to keep the issue alive.

  26. She don't know how to interview such a powerful and respectful man.She is getting rude.Her behaviour can a reason for WW3
