Russian President Vladimir Putin said he is willing to share what transpired between President Donald Trump and Russian diplomats during recent meetings, which will show that no classified intelligence was discussed.
Speaking at a joint press conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni on Wednesday, Putin said he had “no other explanation” for the claim made by U.S. left-wing media that Trump revealed classified intelligence to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak, except that he believes there is an atmosphere of “political schizophrenia” in Washington:
