Putin said he'd provide transcripts to Congress to prove Trump didn't share secrets


UPDATE 8:56 a.m. EST: Russia says there was no recording of the meeting.

ORIGINAL STORY:  Russian President Vladimir Putin said early Wednesday that he is willing to give transcripts of the meeting between Russian officials and President Trump to Congress in order to prove the president did not share classified secrets, The Hill reported.

Putin is reportedly willing to hand over such records after The Washington Post reported that Trump revealed classified information to Russia's foreign minister and ambassador during a meeting in the Oval Office. 

Putin, speaking at an event with the visiting Italian prime minister, dismissed the uproar over Trump's meeting with Sergey Lavrov and Sergei Kislyak as "political schizophrenia."

The Russian president joked that Lavrov would be reprimanded because "he hasn't shared those secrets with us," the Associated Press reported.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) was unmoved by Putin's offer.
