As the D.C. Swamp continues trying to develop a blueprint for Trump’s removal from office, Russian President Vladimir Putin is now offering to provided the White House with the Kremlin’s records regarding controversial claims that the U.S. president improperly shared classified intel with Russian diplomats.
Breaking his silence on the matter Wednesday, Putin called the ‘anti-Russian sentiment‘ in U.S. Congress not only ‘dangerous‘ but a clear case of ‘political Schizophrenia.’
Speaking in regards to the controversial meeting between President Trump, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak which took place last week, Putin stated during joint press conference with the prime minister of Italy that he will gladly put the issue to bed once and for all by turning over their records should the White House agree.
Putin said – if the White House agreed – that he would share his records of a meeting Trump had last week with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergei Kislyak in which it was reported Trump blurted out sensitive information given to the White House by Israeli intelligence. Making light of the situation, Putin said he would have to reprimand Lavrov since the alleged intelligence was never passed along to him.
“He hasn’t shared those secrets with us,” Putin said.
The former KGB operative said he wasn’t yet ready to judge Trump’s nascent presidency and would only do so “when he’s allowed to work at full capacity,” ostensibly referencing the tidal wave of legislative resistance that’s greeted most of the items on Trump’s agenda.
Putin’s offer to provide Russian records pertaining to the meeting comes at a time in which the White House adamantly denies any wrongdoing on the part of the president.
Speaking on the matter, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster blatantly stated that what Trump shared with the Russian diplomats was not only “wholly appropriate,” but the information “was nothing that you would not know from open-source reporting.”
In response to the controversy, Trump tweeted Tuesday that “As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety,” adding that for “Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”
