Megyn Kelly: I Think Putin 'Has Something on Donald Trump'

'I think there’s a very good chance Putin knows some things about Donald Trump that Mr. Trump does not want repeated publicly'

After her highly publicized interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Megyn Kelly claims she doesn’t think the Russian president likes Donald Trump and that he likely has something on him.

“I would not say that Putin likes Trump,” she said. “I did not glean that at all from him. I did glean that perhaps he has something on Donald Trump."

“I think there’s a very good chance Putin knows some things about Donald Trump that Mr. Trump does not want repeated publicly,” she added.

“My money’s not on the dossier,” she said. “I think it has to do with money and Trump’s early years dealing with the Russians back in the '90s, his facilities here in the United States.”

Putin is being accused of making anti-Semitic allegations during his interview with Kelly. “Maybe they are not even Russians but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked; maybe they have dual citizenship of a green card; maybe the U.S. paid them for this. How can you know that? I do not know either,” he said.
