Putin says ex-FBI head Comey gave no proof Russia meddled in US election

MOSCOW - Former FBI director James Comey presented no evidence to prove that Russia had meddled in the US presidential election, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday, saying Washington had tried to influence Russian elections for years.
Putin was referring to Comey's testimony to the US Senate's Intelligence Committee.
Putin said it was "very strange" for a former FBI chief to release details of his conversations with the US president to the media.
Putin was speaking during a televised question and answer session with Russians.
