Vladimir Putin Tells A Funny: I’ve Got Trump Tapes If You Need Them

Vladimir Putin told reporters that if Congress really wants a tape of President Donald Trump speaking with Russian officials, he could get it for them.

The Russian president jokingly said he can provide the House and Senate with a transcript of the conversation between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, The Daily Caller reports.

The allegation is that Trump shared classified information about an ISIS aviation plot during the talks.

Putin said that Washington has been gripped by “political schizophrenia” following the disclosure, and Trump’s alleged request to then-FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“Officials say the disclosures might have put a key intelligence source in jeopardy in the fight against ISIS.

The Trump administration has denied accusations that the intelligence disclosure was improper. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster called the WaPo report “false” and told reporters Tuesday that the president’s conversation with Lavrov was “wholly appropriate.”
