Putin says he can prove Trump did not pass Russia secrets

Putin says he can prove Trump did not pass Russia secrets

Russian President Vladimir Putin's offer to provide a transcript of a controversial private Oval Office meeting between President Trump and two Russian diplomats has further fueled allegations that the White House has had improper dealings with Moscow, a USA adversary.

Vladimir Putin is inaugurated for his first term as president of Russian Federation.

Putin on Wednesday joked that his Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov "hasn't shared those secrets with us". "It was very bad of him".

The highly classified information about an Islamic State plot was collected by Israel, a crucial source of intelligence and close partner in the fight against some of the America's fiercest threats in the Middle East. Trump's disclosure of the information threatened to fray that partnership and piled pressure on the White House to explain the apparently on-the-spot decision to reveal the information to Russian diplomats in the Oval Office.

Mr Putin even suggested that Russian Federation share the records of last week's talks between Mr Trump and Mr Lavrov with the US Congress, if the White House approved.

The White House issued a preliminary denial of The Washington Post's story only to be overridden by Trump with his own Twitter statement defending his revelations to the Russians. "And if it comes in an email, I wouldn't click on the attachment".

As constituents around the world bandy about terms like "obstruction of justice", people also await the transcript of President Trump's meeting with Russian officials via President Putin.

"The last person Trump needs to vouch for him right now is Vladimir Putin", Schiff said in an interview with CBS News. "If they want to send something, you know, hats off".

In the U.S., National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said President Trump's action "was wholly appropriate to that conversation and is consistent with routine sharing of information between the president and leaders with whom he's engaged".

The allegation stems from a memo written by Comey and seen by a source familiar with the contents of the memo.

Mark Warner of Virginia, top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said he would ask Comey for additional material as part of that panel's investigation.

The news comes amid reports Mr Trump tried to influence an investigation into his team's dealings with Russian Federation.

Putin attacked Trump's critics, describing them as "schizophrenic" in their response to the news that the President had been sharing information with Russian Federation.

"It's hard to imagine what else these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next", said Putin, referring to unnamed United States politicians.

"What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation using anti-Russian slogans".

"They either don't understand that they are harming their country - which makes them just dumb - or they understand, which makes them unsafe and dirty". Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

U.S. officials said the device could pass through airport screening machines undetected and that the information was reliable enough for them to contemplate a ban on laptops on all flights traveling to the United States from Europe.
