Russian President Vladimir Putin says reports that President Trump gave Russian officials highly classified information have him thinking that “the United States has been developing political schizophrenia.”
“This is the only thing I can think of when I hear allegations saying that the president has revealed some secrets to [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov,” Putin said Wednesday.
This is two days after the media went wild with accusations of Trump having shared classified intel with the Russians at last week’s meeting. The people who were at the meeting said he didn’t share secrets. People who weren’t at the meeting said he did.
Speaking at a news conference, the Russian president also declared that Trump did not share any secrets.
Putin said he will be happy to release the tapes the Russians have transcribed.
Now the media is going nuts because the Russians taped the meeting. Some are claiming the tapes are part of a blackmail plot.
Putin at press conference: I’m unhappy with Lavrov because he didn’t share Trump’s “secrets” either with me or intel services. (Laughter.)

Nancy Pelosi is out declaring the need to offer the American people “stability” but it’s Democrats who are causing the chaos.
Putin is a better defender of Donald Trump than some of our weak-kneed Republicans.
The latest scandal is an alleged memo from Trump saying he hopes Comey feels as he does that Flynn doesn’t need to be investigated any longer – the man had just been fired.
The media is attempting to convince Americans Comey was being bullied into ending the investigation into General Flynn. Speaker Ryan asked the logical question as to why Comey didn’t share his concerns earlier. Does anyone really believe 6’8″ Comey was cowed but didn’t bother to tell anyone? Comey’s deputy Andrew McCabe testified recently that there was no interference in the investigation.
Democrats are demanding a special prosecutor for the Russia investigation and that is intended to drag the investigation out for four years. It’s a sham. If Republicans give up autonomy for this when they have the majority, they’re even more idiotic than we originally thought.
The rants are insane. John McCain just said this is like Watergate and that is absurd.
Why doesn’t anyone care about these corrupt, illegal leaks?
Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley said there is no evidence of obstruction justice and what Trump has done so far is not a crime.
Impeachment doesn’t require a crime but what we’ve heard so far falls well short of Impeachment, he said. It isn’t even close to high crimes and misdemeanors.
If the president did what he is accused of [that’s a big IF] it’s “breathtakingly dumb” and “inappropriate” but that’s all it is, Turley continued. It’s “silly” to think they could impeach him.
There’s not much they can charge Flynn with either, Turley said.
