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.

To quote the words of another one of our favorite politicians: nothing more than a vast leftwing conspiracy to undermine my...oh wait, it only applies to dems when they say that. Sorry, my bad.

Expect Maidan Square type of protests in DC this summer.

Ukraine was a warm-up for a US coup of a weak and cowardly leader, who is too scared and too slow to respond to a real threat.

I wonder if the transcripts reveal anything about where our president believes comely females should best be grabbed.

Did the Russian foreign minister express his nation's view on this policy position?

I for one would like to read the full transcripts.

Cool, well played.

I'll bet he finds our childish progressive political positions much easier to screw around with, than his own.

Included at no charge, a sizzling Soros slapdown.

The "progressive" politics is so crazy that it is hard to distinguish meme's mocking it from its own propoganda.  Maybe we do need a really hard financial crash that brings on some geniune hardship, no doubt we'll see the socialists out there, but there is also the chance that people might start thinking for themselves too.

Yeh.. I can't really condone anifas activities.

Yeah, there's positively, absolutely no "Deep State" in the 'post communist' utopia that is now Russia! Perfect for the likes of authority worshippers, anyway; Don't let the door smack your ass on the way out tmos! Good luck memorizing the provinces!

Trump, Putin and Xi have joined forces to bring the cabal down.  All three men are bold enough to go public when necessary.  Bring it on...

It IS NOT a "liberal" media. It is a Leftist, totalitarian media. Please be accurate.

The adult in the room is setting the record straight , president Putin has proven why he is the top leader in the world. the us deep state is getting crushed  along with all the jesters who call themselves democrats.

Arnold's picture

If you correct that to 'Billionaire Putin', I'll give you a greenie for your honesty.

Davidduke2000's picture

you have to give to caesar what belong to caesar. president Putin is highly regarded as the top world leader, he came to the rescue of the oldest Christians on the face of this earth while the us proxies were killing them, he has showed incredible patience and maturity that a nation can count on in times of crisis, even the us, his measured  actions and great temperament show that even americans can count on him to keep them safe from terrorists since he is the only one with the Chinese are fighting terrorism and he is destroying their capacity to wage war by destroying their means of making money. 

Giant Meteor's picture

One slight trouble however ..


I do not believe the US can agree which pant leg to pull up first in the morning ..

Whoa Dammit's picture

If Putin does release the recording, you can bet that CNN will immediately discover that if the recordings are played backwards at 78 RPMs you can hear Trump and Lavorov say "Death to Democracy".

Dupe. I am running Windows 10 OS. I will never be able to tell if it has been hacked by ransomware or not, as it always  does whatever it wants to anyway.

Apparently, Mr. Putin has "recordings" and "memos" of his own to offer. The Obama/Clinton/Soros/Schumer ass-clown circus continues in DC.

brushhog's picture

Give it to wikileaks, thats the only way the truth will come out.

Putin has no death wish.
To tangle with Arkancide, a la Seth Rich, is not on today's things to do list.

At least until Trump throws its founder and CEO into the gullag.
