(Newser) – Vladimir Putin says President Trump did not reveal classified information during his White House meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and that a transcript can prove it, reports the Hill. The Russian president said Wednesday that he would be willing to provide the transcript of the meeting to Congress "if the US administration finds it appropriate," reports CNN. He then referred to the scandal as "political schizophrenia" and accused unnamed US politicians of being "stupid" or "dangerous" with "anti-Russian sentiment" and of "causing the damage to their own country," per the AP.
