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.

This whole thing, all the way back to the Trump election (I voted for Trump) is just AMAZING!  I really hope people start seeing the "fakeness" of all of this.  These Democrats and some Republicans (mainly Dumb, McCain & Dumber, Graham), in my humble opinion, are sealing the fates of their next election.  Traitors!  Likewise, hopefully the public is seeing just how crooked and biased the main stream media is.  I really wish I had a billion dollars right now.  I would start a truly unbiased and newstrustworthy media station.  I am amazed at just how deep the deep state really is.  This crap belongs in the movies!  The Republican party has the greatest opportunity in the history of our party to attack these Democrats as crooked, lying, manipulative participants in our government who's sole purpose is to promote their individual sensationalism!  How can a sane individual hop on this band wagon that the Democrats and Dumb and Dumber have crafted???  Can't the average person see that there is a definate collusion between the Democratic party and the main stream media to craft Trump as unfit and impeachable.  It is almost like they are telling Trump, "We are going to keep whipping and attacking you until you roll over and start playing our game.  All I can say is, I hope Trump reads ZH and if he does, just know that there are many of us that clearly see thru this and he needs to bring this to the rest of the general public.  Mounting a defensive attack would not be difficult to do.  This is TRULY Amazing!!!

Pretty much everyone over the age of 12 can see the through the complete lies of MSM.

The unfortunate part is that the Dims (which includes RINO's) keep cheering them on anyway because because they don't want to see their Globalist commie world view go up in smoke.

They hate truth when it hinders the "Progressive" plan. For some strange reason they think that the Globalists will reward them for their useful idiocy.

The "Republicans" are the "Democrats," and the "Democrats" are the "Republicans."

Unfortunately I think you are wrong.  There are just too many knuckle dragging mouth breathers who live and die watching the stupid box.


This guy had it right all along!

Drudge should have kept the Seth Rich piece at the top of his site, for months if need be.


“Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.”

Page 395 from the insiders who were given access during Cankle's campaign:


“Hillary declined to take responsibility for her own loss . Hillary kept pointing her finger at Comey and Russia . That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech . For a couple of hours [Hillary and her aides] went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.” Now it is the “centerpiece” of the mainstream media and the Democratic Party’s campaign against Donald Trump.

So Trump and Putin are back on the "same team." Russia must be satisfied that Trump is not going to go for regime change in Syria or start some war over Crimea or the Ukraine. I also think China is probably satisfied that the U.S. is NOT going to attack North Korea, maybe Russia too. I wonder if both nations played the "we will dump your treasuries/reveal our real gold holdings" card?

I thought it was because Trump cannot do anything in fact..........Kim Jong-un would wipe out Seoul and the US would have to explain its contempt for Asian lives.......maybe the CEO of United could provide the script ?

Putin clearly thinks he is helping his cause here. I would not bother - talking sense to narcissistic psychopaths is a waste of time. Kicking ass is much more effective.

Putin, and other Russians, do not suffer fools lightly. The idiocy of US Democrats and their media allies is on full international display for anyone with the least bit of common sense and intelligence.

They are laughing up their sleeve.

These losers bring such shame on our nation.

Here's the deal...  IF the source of the intelligence was Israel, then one needs to realize that Israel and Russia have an intelligence sharing agreement.  In other words, Russia probably knew the information at the same time or before Trump did.

Reminds me of a limerick I heard once...

There once was a man from Rangoon,

Who was born 9 months too soon.

He hadn't the luck,

To be born by a fuck,

But was scraped from the sheets with a spoon.

If the CNN/WaPo/NYT junkies think Trump is the devil incarnate then they need to remember that if they impeach Trump that they get their worst nightmare in Pence who won't put up with this liberal BS for two seconds.  Dear Libs - beware of what you wish for, you just might get it.

When the actual civil war starts these "news" commentators, like Wolf Blitzer, think they will be sitting in their air-conditioned newsrooms tsk-tsking about the violence and that there is no chance they will be strung up like Mussolini.

They will be reporting from a location outside of the country "for the safety of their staff". 

They are a bunch of weak assholes. Do you think Wolf can survive 10 minutes in a civil war? lol

Who killed Seth Rich?

SRV's picture

The Crook... he said rhetorically 

Local man who heard the shots reports that after almost a year police still haven't asked a single question.

The FBI seem uninterested in the murder of a political staffer at the center of a huge DC scandal to date.

Seth was alive for some time after being shot but still not a word on what he said... 

The Wikileaks contact named as the contact was murdered in the UK after Seth's murder (did they get the name before he was killed?)...

One of the heaviest security camera areas in the country and not one released to the public.

Over an hour unaccounted for that night with no answers from police.

Call/Tweet/Email the DC police asking for an investigation, details, body camera film, hospital records, what did he say to police (officers named in initial report)... now is the time while the story is hot (they got away with slow walking it for almost a year... ask them why)!

America can't they fart alone in their own bs pornews without using names of Russia, Iran, Syria or NK etc in their ever growing nonsense?

This means they got no real business except manipulation of already dumb down public, else they must pay for these countries for the role of bogey man they put them whenever they like in their 24hr MSM spin of the day,week,month etc

Dummy Americans actually believing Russia moving troops and equipment around within their borders = Russian aggression. 

They have thousands of troops, tanks, helicopters, mobile troop transports, artillery stationed in the Ukraine too! No actual pictures, but still! The sound of tiny Baltic states wringing their hands is cause for concern!

Cernovich has reported, from his administration sources, that nothing Trump discussed with the Russian foreign minister was classified or in any way endangered national security.  It was stuff already known by the Russians and reported in the press.  The leaker, however, leaked far more information that was ever discussed by Trump.  So the leaker did seriously jeopardize the foreign allies and national security.  Cernovich says that person, if found, will probably go to prison, with the The Washington Post being complicit.

Okay please participate in my thought experiment.

 Trump has won the Republican  primary and Clinton, the democratic primary.

 Make believe MSM is telling the truth (gag) and that Putin has the hacked DNC e-mails and only the Kremlin has seen and knows about these hacked DNC e-mails.

 Also, pretend for 10 minutes that Seth Rich never was born.

 Now make believe that You are Putin, you are sitting in the Kremlin with your top advisors and psychological profiles of both candidates. Your best forensic psychiatrists have used all means available to come up with their profile reports.

Trump's report  portrays him to be a loose cannon, a person who is bombastic, a person who acts then thinks later, who speaks without thinking and his mouth and twitter account are both his worst enemies. BUT he has good intentions and is truthful when he says he wants to put America first in any and all foreign deals.

Clinton's report shows her to be a sociopath,  shows her to put herself first above family above country and is as amoral as possible. OH and Mr. Putin please don't FORGET THAT URANIUM ONE deal. You know the one where you scooped up 20% of our Uranium reserves with Clintons help.   In addition, it shows her to be a complete coward when confronted with people more powerful and smarter than she.

 Your goal, Mr. Putin,  is to have a "Manchurian candidate" win the election.

 Do you :

A) Keep the e-mails a closely guarded Kremlin secret, let Hillary win, then own her by simply sending her a sample of the e-mails the day after she wins the election? In addition hold her corruption and involvement in the Uranium One affair as another thing to blackmail her with. Thereby have a president completly under your control that you can blackmail anytime you need to.


B) Pick Trump, a loose cannon, a personality you cannot depend upon to play along with you for 4 years, least 4 months? A person  on which you have no concrete inteligence to blackmail him with. Just some innuendos here and there. Oh and BTW, Mr Putin,  blow your wad of e-mails so that you cant use them in the future. Instead give them to wikileaks and give the DNC, McCains and Grahams ammunition to say "Russia did it"

 I think answer A is obvious if not rhetorical

 This fucking Putin - Trump nexus is pure bullshit, no fucking way id the Kremlim blew its wad of hacked e-mails

Crushing the Deep State and scumbags like McCain/Schumer/Graham will take Patriots and foreign intel to come forward with the proof of their criminal acts and murder. The proof is there just need to protect the people who have the proof. Trump must bring the war to these evil political and corporate scum.

The traitors and dual-citizens are attacking Trump from all fronts...time for him to strike back or go down in disgrace.
