    Trump revealed highly classified intel in Oval Office meeting with Russians

    Trump revealed highly classified intel in Oval Office meeting with Russians

    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 that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

    The information Trump 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 that Trump’s decision to do so risks 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 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.”

Trump on Wednesday…
    The revelation comes as Trump faces rising legal and political pressure on multiple Russia-related fronts. Last week, he fired FBI Director James B. Comey in the midst of a bureau investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Trump’s subsequent admission that his decision was driven by “this Russia thing” was seen by critics as attempted obstruction of justice.

    The day after this President terminated Director Comey, Trump went off script and began describing details about an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

    Trump and his supporters have been highly critical of Hillary Clinton of having classified emails on her personal server.

    Officials expressed concern with Trump’s handling of sensitive information as well as his grasp of the potential consequences. Exposure of an intelligence stream that has provided critical insight into the Islamic State, they said, could hinder the United States’ and its allies’ ability to detect future threats.

    Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

    The Washington Post has been asked by officials to withhold details, including the name of the city, at the urging of officials who warned that revealing them would jeopardize important intelligence capabilities.

    were you there?
    Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call "the Constitution" and the Declaration of Independence are not pretty much the same thing or "connected in spirit," or "two sides of the same coin." The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

    Apparently the self-deluded alt-right thinks this highly classified information was in the public domain before Trump blabbed to the Russians.

    When Trump surrogates are sent out to lie to the nation time and time again, he has squandered any chance of being given the benefit of the doubt!

    The source of this leak had to be a high level senior official - because they and the Russians were the only ones present in the Oval Office with the President!

    Trump and his supporters were chanting "lock her up!" after the FBI found classified material on her private server.

    There was never any evidence that this classified material fell into the wrong hands, or that Clinton deliberately volunteered classified material to the Russians - in the Oval Office places!

    March, 2017. The TSA is going to put the clamp down on laptops because jihadists have used it as a weapon on a plane.

    If you’ve got travel plans involving the Middle East and Africa, pack some books. The Department of Homeland Security is requiring passengers on some airlines serving those regions to pack their gadgets—cellphones and medical devices excepted—in their checked bags.

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

    Senior officials persuaded the Washington Post to withhold certain information to protect sources and methods - that would hardly be necessary if the story was false!

    At least the Post is acting like the adult in the room - which is more than can be said of this President!

    The information Trump 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.
