In Sochi, Russia, on May 17th, President Vladimir Putin stressed President Trump did not disclose sensitive intel to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov when conferencing with him and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at the White House—he has proof “it didn’t happen (as National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster put it).”
While co-speaking with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni during a press gathering, Putin remarked on Lavrov didn’t report anything (re: supposed intel) to him either—or Lavrov would’ve been in the hot seat himself. More, Putin’s ready to arrange for Russia to provide any/all transcriptions of the Trump-Lavrov exchange to US attorneys if need be.
This new information seemingly negates the two, US officials who recently claimed Trump passed secret intel to Lavrov entailing a strategized, Islamic State infiltration, which sucked the White House back into scandal only a short time upon Trump’s victory as president.
