Vladimir Putin ‘willing to provide audio recordings’ of Donald Trump meeting with Russians

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that Moscow could provide a record of the exchange between Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US President Donald Trump, who is accused of sharing classified intelligence.

“If the US administration finds it possible, we are ready to provide a recording of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump to the US Congress and Senate,” Mr Putin said during a press conference.

He later clarified that he could provide a transcript, not a recording.

Mr Putin also described US politicians whipping up “anti-Russian sentiment” as either “stupid” or “dangerous”.

The comments come after potentially explosive reports on Tuesday night that Donald Trump asked James Comey, the former FBI director, to end an investigation into Michael Flynn’s links to Russia.

“I hope you can let this go,” Mr Trump reportedly told Mr Comey, the day after Mr Flynn, the former national security adviser, had resigned over his undeclared contacts with Moscow.

The New York Times cited a memo that Mr Comey wrote shortly after the meeting with the US president in early February. Mr Trump fired Mr Comey, who was leading the investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russia, last week.

If confirmed, it would be evidence that the US president had directly tried to influence the FBI investigation.
