Master Troll Vladimir Putin Offers Comey Political Asylum, Compares Him to Snowden

London [U.K], June 15: Russian President Vladimir Putin has made a satire remark on fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director saying he is following the footsteps of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and therefore James Comey is welcome to seek asylum in Russia. When a special service head records a conversation with the commander-in-chief and then gives it to the media through his friend.

The former FBI director, James Comey, fired by Trump back in May, testified last week in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding issues related to Trump's possible collusion with Russian Federation, and the possibility that the President may have obstructed justice while trying to convince Comey to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn.

The United States always interfered in Russian elections, doing so especially aggressively in 2012, the same thing happens in all former USSR countries, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"For three quarters in a row, we have observed economic growth", Putin said, adding that the sanctions have been a sort of blessing in disguise as Russian Federation was forced to diversify its economy.

Asked at a USA congressional hearing why he was sacked, Comey said he did not know for sure.

Putin offered a glimpse into his closely guarded private life, saying he has two grandchildren whose privacy he wants to respect.

"If he's persecuted. we're ready to give him political asylum", he said. In an interview with filmmaker Oliver Stone, which is being broadcast in episodes on the cable network Showtime, the Russian president appeared to offer a limited defense of the man that many US officials have accused of treason.

All 12 people arrested on Sunday after the London attack have now been released without charge. They worked in the same restaurant: Kentucky Fried Chicken in London's East Ham area.

Which is to say that with nine months to go until Russian presidential elections, Putin, who is very likely to remain president, won't actually say whether he's running for the office.

Thursday's program also featured Putin commenting on the anti-government protests across Russian Federation, which he claims were organized for "self-promotion" by the opposition.

Russian President Vladimir Putin gestures as he speaks to journalists following a live nationwide broadcast call-in in Moscow, Russia June 15, 2017.

Numerous topics center on wages, inflation and the economy.

An annual fixture on Putin's calendar, the televised question-and-answer session is carefully choreographed. One has been reported to be in charge of a lucrative project to build a Silicon Valley-like community under the auspices of Moscow State University.

Should Comey accept asylum in Russian Federation, I see an R&B/emo/soft-core rap/metal band on the horizon.

Putin said Moscow and Washington could cooperate in efforts to prevent the proliferation of mass destruction weapons, including the North Korean nuclear and missile problem. And they are going to do their level best to show Trump and anyone else connected with him in as bad a political light as possible, so that the general public, the American public, would accept their version of the truth, their version of the news, instead of Trump's point of view and those around him.
