‘I Don’t Know What You’re Referring To’: NBC’s Katy Tur Doesn’t Remember Obama Promising Putin ‘Flexibility’ (Mediaite)

When a Republican congressman on MSNBC brought up a 2012 incident where President Barack Obama was caught on a hot mic promising to give Russia’s Vladimir Putin a little more “flexibility” after the election, NBC journalist and MSNBC host Katy Tur seemed not to recall the incident.

Tur pressed Florida Representative Francis Rooney about the number of Donald Trump advisors with close tie to Russia. “I see a lot of folks within Donald Trump’s administration who have a friendlier view of Russia than maybe past administrations did,” she noted.

“Well, I think it was Obama that leaned over to Putin and said, ‘I’ll have a little more flexibility to give you what you want after the re-election,’” Rooney responded.
