"I don't know about this proposal".
The officials say there's been no final decision and the matter remains under discussion.
A secret line with Russia could have allowed the Trump transition team and Russian officials to communicate outside of the scrutiny of the departing Obama administration.
Former CIA Director John Brennan last month said he had noticed contacts between Trump's campaign associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 election and grew concerned Moscow had sought to lure Americans down "a treasonous path".
Putin claimed that Russian Federation has a preference in an election but only reacts to the "political direction" that the United States seems to be heading in.
US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation meddled in the presidential election to hurt the bid of Democrat Hillary Clinton. James Comey - who was sacked from his post as FBI director by Trump in May - told a congressional committee in March that the Federal Bureau of Investigation also was investigating "whether there was any coordination" with Trump's campaign.
The FBI is now conducting an investigation, led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, into Russian attempts to interfere in the last USA presidential election, including whether there could have been any connection to associates of the Trump campaign.
Mr Putin told Mr Kelly that the dinner where the two met was routine. He called the allegations "domestic political squabbles" and a line of attack against Trump. There have been questions about the communications between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
"If it had been important, the minister would have reported it to me. There weren't even any reports". Trump himself has been dogged by questions about any business dealings with Russia as well as reports of a damaging Russian dossier. It has reportedly expanded to include the President's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who serves as a senior adviser to Trump, as well as his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

And the president's stance against climate change as a science and as an worldwide issue is disturbing, to say the least. He has also expressed doubt about the causes of climate change , saying it is a "hoax" made up by China.
"When I came to the event for our company, Russia Today [RT], and sat down at the table, next to me there was a gentleman sitting on one side". And I got up and left. He was involved in some things.
"There's a theory that Kennedy's assassination was arranged by the United States intelligence services", he said.
In his May 9 letter firing Comey, Trump said the former FBI director had informed him "on three separate occasions that I am not under investigation".
Mr Flynn was sacked in February after misleading the White House about his ties with Russia's envoy to the US.
"It is not coincidence that Flynn was placed next to President Putin", Michael McFaul, U.S. ambassador in Moscow from 2012 to 2014 and now an NBC News analyst said in April. Flynn previously said during an interview in 2016 that "when you are given immunity, that means you probably committed a crime".
Putin even suggested that former President Barack Obama "started having doubts" when they spoke about it. The two have spoken several times by phone since Trump's election.
He also argued that the U.S.

She offers an exclusive, one-on-one interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Speaking at Russia's annual showcase economic forum in Saint Petersburg on Friday, Mr Putin slammed accusations that Moscow meddled in the election. You people over there ... good job.
"Well this just another load of nonsense".
