Putin offers transcript of Trump meeting with Lavrov
Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered to provide a transcript of the controversial Oval Office meeting between Donald Trump and the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, which raised the stakes in an affair that has sent the White House into a tailspin. "If the US administration finds it necessary, we are ready to provide the record of the conversation between Trump and Lavrov to the Senate and Congress," Putin said. This is another woe for Trump, his meeting with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak came a day after Trump fired FBI director James Comey, who was the man leading an investigation into the links between members of the Presidents campaign team and Russia.
