Putin Ready To Give Congress Transcript Of Trump-Lavrov Conversation To Prove No Secrets Were Revealed

Tyler Durden's picture

As the quest to unearth just what Trump told Russian foreign minister Lavrov continued, an unexpected development emerged on Wednesday morning, when none other than Russian president Vladimir Putin said that Trump did not share any classified information or state secrets to foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, and to prove it he was ready to hand over a transcript of the talks between Putin and Lavrov to Congress if the White House requests it.

"If the US administration deems it possible, we are ready to provide the Senate and Congress with the transcript of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump," Putin said at a press conference, following a meeting with the Italian prime minister on Wednesday.

While initially Reuters reported that Putin was ready to give a "recording" of the conversation, a subsequent clarification by Reuters quoted a Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov who says "Putin is prepared to provide a transcript, not audio recording, of Trump and Lavrov meeting." Arguably, that's because the last thing the White House needs right now is someone else recording conversations.

Speaking at a news conference alongside Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Putin jocked that Lavrov was at fault for not passing on what he made clear he believed were non-existent secrets.

"I spoke to him (Lavrov) today," said Putin with a smile. "I'll be forced to issue him with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia's intelligence services. It was very bad of him."

As for the reason behind Putin's generous offer: the Russian president said that the latest reports about Trump revealing security secrets to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have become "political schizophrenia", and Russia is willing to help resolve these, adding Russia highly appreciates results of Trump-Lavrov talks.

"We are seeing in the US a developing political schizophrenia," Putin said quoted by RT. "There is no other way I can explain the accusations against the acting US president that he gave away some secrets to Lavrov" and added that "it's hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next," said Putin.

"What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation using anti-Russian slogans. Either they don't understand the damage they're doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, in which case they are dangerous and corrupt."

"Anyway, this is a US matter, and we don't want and don't plan to interfere," the Russian president said.

Awesome. Let Putin destroy part of MSM.

At this point, perhaps it would be better if Trump was some manchurian candidate and wanted to give control over the Russians.  I mean, we are completely incapable of governing ourselves at this point.

'stupid... corrupt... dangerous' 


Vlad put all three darts into triple 20. 


The President (of the Russian Federation that is) has also let everybody know that all conversations are recorded.  In other words... you won't be framing us you filthy scumbags.

The biggest issue I see here is that Trump has been put in a position where he is constantly reacting to one stupid MSM assertion after another.  He has lost the initiative.

He needs to do what Putin did in Russia years ago - drain the fucking swamp and start over.  There is no other path to success for him. 

He needs to put the deep-state scammers on the defensive.  As it stands he keeps "swatting at the mosquitoes" and not really accomplishing anything useful. 

FoggyWorld's picture

He ought to start with his son-in-law and daughter.

virgule's picture

Maybe he could ask Erdogan for some operational advice?

Ghost of PartysOver's picture

Totally agree with Draining the Swamp but the problem he now has is that he surrounded himself with a lot of swamp dwellers.  Not a good situation.  When I started seeing some of his advisers I become very disheartened.  Gonna get really ugly before it gets better. 

And the ZH doom and gloomers that have believed the great crash is coming for the last many years may have their moment in the sun.

Dame Ednas Possum's picture

You make out like us ZH'ers revel in the doom and gloom.  Far from it. 

If we didn't give a shit we wouldn't waste our time here trying to front-run what's coming. 

Once one applies some rational thought to events everything is revealed.  Like unplugging from the matrix.  The fact is that most people have switched off, don't blame us for giving a shit and being switched-on. 


We didn't put the cat in the bag.  We won't let it out.  But we know it's there and we know it'll get out sooner or later and it will be a fucking great bengal tiger.  Believing (knowing) this means we'd have to be fools if we didn't prepare ourselves for that inevitable occurence.

Agree totally, but unfortunately, Putin is a genius who plays the long game.  Trump not so much.  Putin had some time after he took over from the drunken traitor, Yeltsin.  The Anglo-American Zionist cabal were overconfident in 2000 and thought that they had Russia by the balls indefinitely.  Trump has no time.  As Boy Bush put it in a completely different context, "This sucker is going down."

Lore's picture

Trump's advisors seem like a bunch of rank amateurs, or worse, outright enemies of the state, working actively to undermine and sabotage him, collaborating with the Fake Newsmedia to drag him through the mud.

HE NEEDS NEW ADVISORS, PRONTO. In his place, I'd be tempted to seize his cell phone and shut down that goddamned Twitter feed and then arrange a private meeting with Putin to see what can be done about assembling a loyal staff, because by God, you don't see this same kind of pathology and incompetence in Moscow.

Putin supporting Trump by absolutely disrespecting the president of the US when offering help to congress... What he is saying is "if you don't believe your president, trust me".. And the orange one has no idea what is going on... This is your choice.. enjoy it!

Hey Pootie babe, post the transcripts online

While I'd like to see the transcrips made public, the US will have to publish them. The Russians would consider it impolite, as well as a transgression of diplomatic decorum, to do so themselves.

to shut up the DC assholes

Such a task is beyond Sisyphean.

Don't forget Gary Webb who killed himself with two bullets to the head, each one instantly fatal.

Yes We Can. But Lets Not.'s picture

Somehow the bullets that took Rich’s life early that morning in July — two loud pops in the darkness — have continued to echo long after police officers found him bleeding in the streets of the District’s Bloomingdale neighborhood, chattering away but confused, unaware that his life was seeping away. 

What was the subject of the 'chattering'?  Why characterized as 'confused'?

Is it true that Rich was due to meet with the FBI?

A federal investigator, who remains anonymous, claims to have proof that Rich sent thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks

Who is this anonymous 'federal investigator'?

The more I look @ this situation, the more American media starts looking like their Ukrainian ahem 'colleagues'. Certainly, obsession over Putin and Russia is one common trait. Lack of logic, critical thinking skillset or any footing in reality seal the deal.

Yet the mainstream media will spin this as proof that Russia has control over Trump, the problem at this point isn't actually the mainstream media.

Its the millions of bozo's who believe it.

People have become so thick that socialists like Bernie Sanders or Jeremy Corbyn are believed.  The latter fruitcake in the UK hates his country (has supported the IRA, Argentina, Spain whoever opposes us), supports Hamas and anything anti-Israeli, wants to spent 100's of billions more at a time when we cannot balance the budget even today, and generally trundles out the exact same economic policies we had in 1960's Britain, they failed then so they should work now?  Madness.

And still his party gets 32% in the polls, that's the problem, the vast confederacy of fools.

More importantly,
it's Billionaire Bezos that believes it.

Bezos believes that without Amazon's half billion dollar a year contract with the CIA for "cloud" stuff, his company could be in deep shit.  His favorite response is, "How high."

Are you saying that your Gov schools may be as shitty as our Gov schools run by the USCorp?

I'd say a gun running smuggling operation is called for in the U.K. It sure looks that the people are getting more polarized and if the shooting starts, it's unhealthy if all rounds are going in only one direction.

There is only one solution, and it doesnt involve voting.

Actually, I think the Russians and Chinese have said "no more false flags" or "pre-emptive" military strikes on soverign nations lest we play the "dump our treasuries" and "reveal how much gold we really have' (and how little you have) cards. Why do you think we haven't invaded/attacked North Korea yet? 

I think both nations have literally said this: Enough.
