Putin made the remarks on Wednesday.
Russia Today reported:
Russian President Vladimir Putin says he is ready to provide records of the recent meeting between US leader Donald Trump and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, to dispel the “political schizophrenia” around the allegations that state secrets were leaked.
“If the US administration deems it possible, we are ready to provide the Senate and Congress with the transcript of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump,” Putin said at a press conference, following a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni on Wednesday.
Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov followed up on Putin’s statement with a clarification that there was no audio recording at the Trump-Lavrov meeting, and the only form of record available is a transcript.
