Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not passed on any secrets to 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 in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Putin quipped that Lavrov was remiss for not passing on what he made clear he believed were non-existent secrets.
“I spoke to him (Lavrov) today,” said Putin with a smile. “I’ll be forced to issue him with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia’s intelligence services. It was very bad of him.”
Hadn’t even heard of this latest kerfuffle (are presidents not allowed to talk to Russians now?) but if Putin says it I’m inclined not to believe it. So now I’m totally with Schumer and Waters in calling for Trump’s immediate impeachment and ritual disembowelment or something. ‘Cause ‘Merka.
Sheesh. I step away from the internet for one lousy day and Oceania is no longer at war with Eastasia? How’s a guy supposed to know what to shout at the 2-minute hate?
