Watch what happens when CBS reporter catches up to Putin and presses him on Comey firing


With Democrats eager to blame Russia for just about everything, Russian President Vladimir Putin moved to get ahead of them on the firing of FBI Director James Comey with a simple edict:

Don’t blame me!

CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer asked Putin about the impact of the firing on U.S. – Russian relations on Wednesday as he was about to take the ice at a hockey game in Sochi.

“There will be no effect,” Putin said through the translation of press aide Dmitry Peskov, before absolving himself of any blame.

“Your question looks very funny for me,” he added. “Don’t be angry with me. We have nothing to do with that.”

The denial came as the Democratic Party seized on Comey’s dismissal to rejuvenate their stalled narrative of collusion between Trump and the Russians in the November election — a narrative that has yet to be supported with any evidence.

Putin did weigh in on President Donald Trump’s decision to fire Comey.

“President Trump is acting in accordance with his competence, in accordance with his law and Constitution,” he said.

The remarks came just before the president met with both Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak at the White House, CBS News noted.
