Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia “has nothing to do with that,” in response to a question by a CBS reporter about former FBI Director James Comey’s firing on Tuesday, per Free Beacon.
CBS News’ Liz Palmer asked Putin the question as he headed onto an ice rink, in full hockey gear.

“There will be no effect. Your question looks very funny for me. Don’t be angry with me. We have nothing to do with that,” Putin said. “President Trump is acting in accordance with his competence and the importance with his law and Constitution.”
“And what about us—why we?” Putin asked. “You see, I’m going to play hockey with hockey fans, and I invite you to do the same.”
