3. Smoking Gun.

Yet, it stands forgotten.

Foreign Affairs also recorded the odd omission by the White House.

Here’s What Trump and Putin Actually Said in Helsinki

The press conference transcript—and what the White House edited out.

In a wildlly unconventional press conference on Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin answered a question in a way that many have interpreted as an admission that Russia had meddled in the 2016 U.S. elections. But the White House transcript of the event omits the first half of the reporter’s question, changing the context and, therefore, the meaning of Putin’s answer to the question. The change remains as yet unexplained. Below is the full transcript, with the omitted sentence. We’ve also highlighted the sentence where Trump claims he meant to say “wouldn’t” but instead said the word “would.”


Jeff Mason from Reuters: President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that? [The words in italics were omitted from the White House transcript]

PUTIN: Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the US/Russia relationship back to normal.
