No politician treated 'more unfairly,' Donald Trump says

"If the USA administration finds it necessary, we are ready to provide the record of the conversation between Trump and Lavrov to the Senate and Congress", Putin said.

The New York Times alleged in an article published Monday evening that Trump had provided classified information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as well as Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a closed-door meeting with the two officials last Wednesday at the White House.

A Kremlin aide, Mr Yuri Ushakov, later told reporters that Moscow had in its possession a written record of the conversation, not an audio recording.

"I wouldn't put much credibility into whatever Putin's notes are", Rubio said on Fox News.

On Tuesday, the House intelligence committee also formally requested similar documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "It's credibility would be less than zero".

The Republican-led House oversight committee said Wednesday it plans to invite fired FBI Director James Comey to a May 24 hearing, amid questions on whether President Trump tried to interfere with the FBI investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 race.

While the Utah Republican has made his wish to have Comey testify public, he seems to have hit a snag extending the invitation to Comey personally. "When we get to the bottom of it, then we can make the appropriate decisions, and sometimes those are difficult and hard decisions you have to make".

Complaining about what he said was "political schizophrenia" in the United States, Putin said Trump was not being allowed to do his job properly.

"It's hard to imagine what else these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next", said Putin, referring to unnamed US politicians.

"Either they don't understand the damage they are doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, in which case they are unsafe and corrupt".

Comey has been in high demand in the two weeks since Trump abruptly fired him, reportedly for pursuing an investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged ties with Russian Federation.

A US official familiar with the matter told the Post that Trump disclosed "code-word" information, referring to one of the highest classification levels used by USA intelligence agencies.
