Russian president Vladimir Putin has offered Congress a transcript of Donald Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Russian officials as proof that Trump did not reveal any intelligence. It was not immediately clear how Putin would have such a transcript available.

Earlier this morning Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff called Putin “Probably the last person [Trump] needs to vouch for him right now”.

A few moments ago in the White House, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked secretary of state Rex Tillerson if the offer indicated that that Russians had wiretaps or bugs in the Oval Office, to which Tillerson replied “I would have no way to know that”, and left the room without answering any additional questions.

Eh. Seem more likely the Russians were carrying recording devices on their persons than planting them in the Oval Office.

Possibly Putin is trolling Trump by commenting that he's got access to Trump's taping system.
