    During a statement to reporters on Monday, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster stated*Washington Post*report*that President Trump revealed highly classified information to Russia’s foreign minister is “false.”

    McMaster said, “The story that came out tonight, as reported is false. The president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries, including threats to civil aviation. At no time, at no time, were intelligence sources or methods discussed, and the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known. Two other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on the record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources. And I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”

    Liberals are claiming that Mcmaster wasn't specific enough or he didn't directly address the articles claims despite the fact that he clearly affirmed that only publicly known operations were discussed.

    That's all the matters. No need to answer insane claims of a fake news outlet.

    Trump has you all well-trained. He has you just where he wants you - don't believe anyone but him.

    It isn't what McMcaster said so much as what he didn't - since he didn't deny that information that was not authorized for dissemination even to our allies was shared with the Russians. From the original WaPo report:

    "H
    e described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat."

    McMaster didn't deny that.

    Meanwhile, just like he did to his staff trying to explain Comey's firing, Trump just threw McMaster under the bus:






    So keep your candles burning
    "Nevertheless, she persisted."

    So, rewriting the lede with this, we have: "President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador, as reported by unnamed sources who are current officials, or who were Obama administration officials, and who were not present at the meeting."

    Let's go further. Later in the story, it's reported:

    Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States learned only through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence-gathering method, but he described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.

    Okay, remember the emphasized part, and let's move to the next paragraph:

    The Washington Post is withholding most plot details, including the name of the city, at the urging of officials who warned that revealing them would jeopardize important intelligence capabilities.


    So, now what we know is that these anonymous sources were so alarmed about what Trump told the Russians that they immediately got in touch with Washington Post reporters and ... revealed the same information to them?
    this guy has a point, it doesn't make much sense that a leaker would reveal such detailed classified information to a reporter.

    He did! What part of "military operations that were not already publicly known" don't you understand. a classified city location would contradict Mcmaster's claim. liberals like yourself are playing a silly game of semantics.

    You say silly game, I say deadly serious breach.

    How many serious voices will you ignore in your desperation to believe that Trump is sentient?

    The Cipher Brief: How is this likely to affect intelligence sharing with our allies, our partners? Will it be disruptive? Is this likely to have a negative impact on future intelligence sharing?

    Michael Morell, Former Acting Director, CIA: I think that one of the potentially damaging impacts of President Trump’s disclosure is its impact on our partners who share with us. There is something in the Intelligence Community that we call the third country rule. The third country rule says that when one country gives another country intelligence, the receiving country can’t share that intelligence with a third country without the originating country’s approval. That was violated in this case. What the President did here is going to send a signal to all countries that they need to be extremely careful about what they share with the United States, particularly sensitive information. It’s going to give them pause about whether they should share with the United States or not. That is potentially damaging to U.S. national security.

    Mcmaster
    The president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries, including threats to civil aviation.
    At no time, at no time, where intelligent sources or methods discussed. And the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known.

    vs.

    Trump
    As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism
