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.

Both of the above???


My thinking exactly.


...and some expert on Fox last night stating "We have never been allies with Russia".....clearly he missed WWII.....


I'd love to get Putin's take on Hitlery's uranium deal with his country.....now that is an actual event unlike all the rumors the dems float.

I think I have to repeat this:


Seems like mainstream media in the US are trying to create some kind of artificial perspective on reality for the general public that would make it stand out as more legitimate to impeach Trump for no real reason.


It´s very obvious that American MSM have a very obvious political agenda. They are trying to create an artificial perspective on reality.


There seems to have been a few ultra-rich non-neocon people who donated to Trump´s campaign. If these people want Trump to stay in office I think that they have to create some kind contender to CNN almost instantly that can broadcast live on the Internet and perhaps also as a free cable TV channel. I´m not so sure that this TV channel would be profitable. I think that they would need about 100 journalists in order to give a sufficiently professional impression to the audience. But I think that the American society and the world desperately need less biassed mainstream media news. Maybe the general public could also help cover the losses. If they create some kind of foundation or trust I reckon that people would be willing to contribute money. Alternative media is not sufficient to counterbalance the existing mainstream media and something just got to happen now as regards the big media. The big media is a complete disaster in North America and in Western Europe.


Some kind of less biassed contender to CNN would also make it easier for senators and members of Congress to get re-elected. Today, they fear the power of MSM like CNN. MSM can easily destroy any candidate today. There got to be alternatives to CNN and similar media that make politicians less afraid of the existing MSM, neocons and neoliberalcons.


Maybe somebody will argue that Fox News is somewhat better than CNN. But for people who consider themselves as liberals or as very moderate Republicans there is no real alternative to MSM like CNN.

Read somewhere overnight, speculation that the Secret Service has the entire White House on recording for Presidential protection. Which sort of makes sense given the Ben Rhodes comment to a reporter "we can get you a transcript". 

Now my speculation is the Trump tweet is that those "recordings exist" between Obama and James Comey about the Clinton cover up. Maybe after taking office, Presidential office SCIF has all these recordings and Trump being Pres uncovered they exist beyond his own administration. Not about his conversation with James Comey, he knows he's clean. 

Remember there are things we won't know because its contained within the White House. We learned that with the drama with Devin Nunes and the unmasking drama with Mike Flynn.

Anyway, my specualtion is just as good as anyone elses. I just see something different.

How about if Putin supplies the transcripts of talks with Hilldabeast giving the OK to sell 20% of our uranium reserves to him.  He could change this whole situation be pointing out how close Russia and the USA had gotten when Hillary was Sec. of St. and how this probably would not have happened if Hillary hadn't been planning to run for president. Talk about a pay to play sell out.  Putin shafted Hillary after she sold all Americans out o that deal.  How many other deals did she make to so she could hit the "RESET" button with Putin in the hopes of getting elected!

You have to be honest. This is what Trump meant when he said Drain the Swamp. This is how you break FBI, CIA and all other government agencies which have become political. It would be so hard for them to even think of guatemala with so much drama in the white house. I kinda like the whole thing as every one is busy in DC some how. Hopefully they don't have to worry about bombing India because there was a gang rape there.

It will take a long time for FBI to have a foreign policy giong forward with out a leader. Trump is probably enjoying that. May be that is his goal in the end. He is smarter than you think he is.

Putin probably IS capable of playing "3D chess." I wonder if he released the full transcript what else was said or agreed to?

I think it is long past time for Trump to get a count of the remaining Obama holdovers and give them the boot.

We need to see a lot of stories of "reporters" driving off bridges!

Obama holdovers?  You still think it's a left/right thing don't you?  It is the NeoCons they are controlling BOTH parties. In fact Obama resisted them better than Trump is doing so far.

Man, they really hate Vlad since he is not a Commie.

And, he is on Trump's side, as much as it is practical, imo.

But Hitlary sure had some fire sales on Uranium ore!

Odds are they will refuse the Putin offer in case it dampens the rage of the looney left
