Democrats trying to sabotage President Trump are accusing him of leaking secrets to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during a meeting in Washington last week. President Trump has denied it, along with his team, but democrats are keeping the campaign up. Now, even Russian President Vladimir Putin says he has proof that Trump did not leak any kind of intel.
Putin says that Trump’s meeting with Lavrov was transcribed in written form and that there was a record of everything that was said during the meeting.
“It’s hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next,” Putin complained. “I spoke to him (Lavrov) today,” said Putin, smiling. “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.”
The Daily Mail reports:
Putin said Moscow initially found debates about Russia’s meddling in U.S. politics as ‘funny’ but said Moscow is now ‘concerned.’
Putin dismissed the U.S. politicians, whom he did not identify, as either being ‘stupid’ or ‘dangerous and unscrupulous’ who are wittingly ‘causing the damage to their own country.’
‘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.’
President Trump has been similarly dismissive of investigations of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election – an idea he has called a ‘hoax.’
Asked what he thinks of the Trump presidency, Putin said it’s up to the American people to judge but his performance can only be rated ‘only when he’s allowed to work at full capacity,’ implying that someone is hampering Trump’s efforts.
Two U.S. officials said on Monday that Trump had disclosed highly classified information to Lavrov about a planned Islamic State operation, plunging the White House into another controversy just months into Trump’s short tenure in office.
Trump is accused of passing on intelligence gathered by Israel that had not been shared with America’s allies.
