This is the stuff of Wily Coyote and the Road Runner. The media yet again hit by another falling anvil.
Another bucket of cold water over the Marx Stream Media.
“….Russian President Vladimir Putin last night said he was prepared to release transcripts to prove Donald Trump did not pass any secrets on to the Russian Foreign Minister in the Oval Office last week.
He said Moscow was ready to hand a transcript of the US President’s meeting with Sergei Lavrov over to US politicians if that would help reassure them.
“If the US administration finds it possible, we are ready to provide a recording of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump to the US congress and Senate,” Mr Putin told reporters.
His comments came after a day of crisis at the White House where advisers were also dealing with an explosive New York Times report that Mr Trump had urged then FBI director James Comey to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,’’ Mr Trump told Mr Comey, according to a memo by Mr Comey obtained by The New York Times. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
The White House denied the report, further aggravating its battle with the US media.
Mr Trump has been under fire since it was revealed he shared sensitive intelligence with Mr Lavrov and the Russian ambassador to the US, Sergei Kislyak.
Mr Putin joked yesterday that Mr Lavrov had not passed what he said were the non-existent secrets on to him either.
“(Lavrov) didn’t share these secrets with us — neither with me nor with the representatives of the Russian security services. That is very bad of him,” Mr Putin said to sniggers from the audience as he answered questions after talks with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the southern Russian city of Sochi. Mr Putin said he had “no other explanation” as to why Mr Trump had come under attack other than “political schizophrenia…” Putin willing to release Trump transcript
