Putin says Comey's firing will not impact US-Russia relations

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that US President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into possible Russian meddling in the US presidential election, will not impact relations between the two nations.
"There will be no effect," Putin told CBS News in a brief interview in the Russian city of Sochi. "Your question looks very funny for me. Don't be angry with me. We have nothing to do with that."
