Trump revealed highly classified info to Russians during White House visit

Article:


President Trump gave highly classified information to Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador at the White House last week — jeopardizing a key source of US intelligence on ISIS, a stunning new report said Monday.

Trump relayed information that came from a US partner through an “intelligence-sharing” deal so sensitive that details had been withheld from America’s allies and were even kept under wraps within most of the US government, the Washington Post reported.

The partner had not given the US the OK to share the material with Russia, and the officials said that Trump risked losing the cooperation of an ally that had deep access to ISIS strategies.

After Trump’s Oval Office meeting — from which the US press was barred, though a Russian photographer was allowed — senior administration officials scrambled to minimize the damage, frantically calling the CIA and National Security Agency to give them the heads up.

“This is code-word information,” a US official familiar with the matter told the paper, using a phrase referring to one of the highest levels of classification that America’s spy agencies use.

Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies,” the official said.

The report came as the Trump faced heat about possible ties to Russia on several fronts.

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador

EXCERPT:

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.

“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

SNORE

Here's why.

He's the OCA that means he can declassify information any time he wants.



Quote

While there is still no indication that he based his explosive tweets about the previous administration on anything other than conspiracy theories on the internet, Trump, as commander-in-chief, does have the power to declassify information about national security matters at his whim, legal experts say.


But presidents typically use that authority in a measured way, including an analysis by lawyers or agency heads of whether releasing the information serves the public interest.



Additionally, he gave information on ISIS. So more than likely it was done to promote the sharing of information between potential allies in the battle against ISIS. So wake me when there is something worth worrying about.

Sad I have to go to NBC to find the article proving the President has this authority anytime he chooses.

How would "former officials" even know this. the very fact of them being former they would no longer have legal access to classified information.

HS Adviser McMaster just stated this is false news. A fake story being reported by a rag.

Don't try even if Trump admitted that he paid Russians to hack the DNC on the promise that if he won he would give them any classified information they wanted if he became president people here would just say he was being smart and praise him for it.

Do you mean the classified ones she stored on an unsecured, ILLEGAL server? Or just the ones there sent from her U.S. issued equipment to others who where not authorized to reverie or send them?
Are those the emails you are referring to, or is there more?

By the way, in a land far away and a time long ago I had a Top Secret Security clearance. I speak with complete and total authority in saying if I had even sent or stored one single classified email in the way she did my ass would probably still be in Leavenworth.

Perhaps a new motto.. Hillary got spied and people died?

I would say that he was being shrewd but don't construe that as a compliment.

Doubt that you would be just as happy saying "President Mike Pence". So go jerk in another corner.

Ah yes, the both-sides-do-it tactic. You never disappoint. :)

Are you under the impression that the Secretary of State also has the ability to declassify information as they choose?

He paid Russians to hack the DNC? This is the first I've heard of that. You have a link?

There is evidence against Clinton with her emails, there is no evidence of what you claimed above. Is there?

You don't even know what 'highly classified info' was supposedly revealed. You buy into it because you want to. I will wait until actual evidence is provided. You are too much of an hysteric to do the same.

You probably bought into the Spicer hiding in the bushes nonsense too. Like you, the media is so invested in Trump being the devil, they are inventing all kinds of crap that you hysterical sissies lap up like a dog on a lapdance couch.

Waiting for evidence and putting things in perspective is not 'praising' anyone.

And if Trump brokered peace between Israel and her enemies, brought North Korea under control, created new strong trade agreements in the Far East, and created the most powerful economy the US has ever seen, you would still be whining about Trump grabbing a pussy.

Seriously, if you can't stand the people at RN, then why are you here? Do you honestly think anyone would care if you weren't? You bring nothing to the table but consistent caterwauling. You lack the integrity to admit when he does do something right, but never miss an opportunity to attack.

Predictable and boring. I say this and everyone here knows I am far from a Trumpkin. It is just the truth. Take a look at some of the "Never Trumpers" here. Notice how many begrudgingly admit when he does well. Think about that. It is called "Integrity". And with that comes "Credibility". You have not displayed either to my experience, "Truth loving moderate".
