The mainstream media has been locked on stories that President Donald Trump should be impeached, citing alleged “obstruction of justice” and running with unverified information about a supposed leak of classified information to Russians. Now, a major political player has come out to clear the president’s name, and it’s not who you would expect.
On Wednesday, President Trump had at least one person in his corner that stated they could prove his innocence. That person… none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin.
President Trump’s week has not been a great one, with accusations abounding from it seems every which way. This latest media frenzy states that Trump shared confidential information about the Islamic State group with Russia during a White House meeting with foreign minister Sergei Lavrov last week.
“US officials claim the information was regarding a tip off the USA received from a supposedly anonymous source over a plot to blow up a passenger jet bound for the US by hiding bombs in laptop,” the U.K. Express reported.
Liberal media pundits are bouncing stories around, and Trump administration officials have shot the story down, but no one stopped to ask Russia if the information exchange actually happened. If they had, according to Putin, they would find out that it never did.
Speaking at a news conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni on Wednesday, Putin was very clear that Trump was innocent, what’s more… he has proof.
Newsmax reported on the story in which Putin spoke to the crowd saying, “I spoke to him [Lavrov] today,” said Putin with a smile. “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.”
He backed up the sarcasm by offering to put it in writing, according to Reuters.
“If the Trump administration deemed it appropriate, Putin said Russia could hand over a transcript of Trump’s meeting with Lavrov to U.S. lawmakers to reassure them that no secrets were revealed,” Reuters reported.
Newsmax later reported Yuri Ushakov, a Kremlin aide, apparently told reporters that Moscow did in fact have a written record of the conversation in their possession that could exonerate President Trump.
“It’s hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next,” Putin said, according to Newsmax.
We’d have to agree with him.
