Reuters: Vladimir Putin says can prove Trump did not pass Russia secrets
SOCHI, Russia, May 17 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not passed any secrets onto Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Washington last week and that he could prove it.
Speaking at a news conference alongside Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Putin quipped that Lavrov had not passed what he said were the non-existent secrets onto him either.
Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov over to U.S. lawmakers if that would help reassure them.

WNU Editor: I can hear the media narrative now .... more proof that Trump is colluding with the Russians. But here is the rub .... Putin is telling everyone that he does not believe that there is nothing of intelligence value that came out from last week's meeting .... but the entire media and political narrative for the past 48 hours is that President Trump did give intel to the Russians. So if lawmakers do accept his offer .... they are then validating the White House's position that nothing sensitive was passed .... hence destroying the narrative and making fools of a lot of people .... especially the Washington Post who were the first to push this story. Talk about trolling the press.
