Putin spoke at a time when in the USA, talk of impeaching Trump has migrated from the fringes of political discourse to the mainstream, as NPR's Domenico Montanaro reports.
They called on the administration "to provide records of interactions with former Director Comey, including any audio recordings".
Putin, who said Moscow rated Lavrov's meeting with Trump "highly", said Russian Federation was ready to hand a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov over to USA lawmakers if that would help reassure them.
Comey summoned to reveal if Trump obstructed justice
In the memo, which ABC News has not seen, Comey wrote that he was asked by the president to let the Flynn probe go in February. From there he veered into a wide-ranging policy discussion, touching on tax cuts, military spending and health care.
At this point, we have not yet seen the Comey memo in question, though Congress is apparently taking an interest.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Tuesday that Trump should tell the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence exactly what information he shared with the Russian diplomats.
A pair of Senate committees, meanwhile, wants more information about Comey's interaction with President Trump. "But we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House". They were warned about this weeks before the inauguration of President Trump. Senator Burr went on to discuss this ability. "The idea that we would accept any evidence from President Putin is absurd", Republican Sen.
Trump reportedly asked Comey to shut down... The story from the Washington Post used an anonymous source in their report.

The car's windshield was shattered and flames billowed from the hood. "He ran out of the auto ", Brandix told CNN affiliate WPIX. The streets in Times Square, a bustling tourist district, were thronged with tourists when the auto ploughed through the crowds.
"So, from my point of view, this is of enormous outcome for his presidency". It used to be believed that these talks of impeachment were just democrats who were angry but now the impeachment talks have crossed party lines.
Trump said later, however, that he had been thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" when he fired Comey, whom he called a "showboat" and a "grandstander" in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt last Thursday. This would be considered obstruction of justice which is an impeachable offense.
Speaking at a news conference alongside Italy's prime minister, Putin quipped that Lavrov had not passed what he said were the non-existent secrets onto him and said that Russian Federation was ready to hand a transcript of the meeting over to USA lawmakers if that would help reassure them.
