PUTIN OF­FERS TRANSCRIPT OF MEET­ING

Metro USA (New York) - - News - REUTERS

3Vladimir Putin said on Wed­nes­day that U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump had not di­vulged any se­crets dur­ing a meet­ing in Washington with Rus­sian of­fi­cials and of­fered to prove it by sup­ply­ing Congress with a transcript. But a lead­ing U.S. Repub­li­can politi­cian said he would have lit­tle faith in any notes Putin might sup­ply. Two U.S. of­fi­cials said on Mon­day Trump had dis­closed clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion about a planned Is­lamic State op­er­a­tion to Rus­sian Foreign Min­is­ter Sergey Lavrov when they met last week, plung­ing the White House into a fresh con­tro­versy just four months into Trump’s ten­ure. Trump has de­fended his de­ci­sion to dis­cuss in­tel­li­gence with the Rus­sians.
