"It's just that French journalists asked me about those hackers". "You created a sensation about nothing".
Putin ridiculed the allegations of Russian meddling in US elections, accusing the Democrats of trying to shift blame for their defeat.
Plus, Putin added, it's the United States that regularly interferes with electoral campaigns around the world.
In a move right out of Kellyanne Conway's book, he then deflected by conflating those accusations with the conspiracy theory that the US government was involved in President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963.
