    Wow... Russian agit-prop walking hand-in-hand with Trump...

    Russia's response to Trump leak reports: don't read U.S. newspapers

    A Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman on Tuesday advised that people don't read American newspapers, in response to U.S. media reports that President Donald Trump had disclosed classified intelligence at a meeting with Russian officials.

    The spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said she had received dozens of messages asking about the reports, which have been denied by the White House.

    "Guys, have you been reading American newspapers again?" she wrote on her Facebook page. "You shouldn't read them. You can put them to various uses, but you shouldn't read them. Lately it's become not only harmful, but dangerous too."


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

    CARELESS

    RECKLOUS

    CROOKED

    PUTTING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AT RISK


    All the criticisms of Hillary by the Trump Campaign has come back to haunt "The Donald" - in spades!

    Trump has now tweeted that as President he has the legal right to release whatever intelligence to the Russians he likes - undermining the explanation provided by his own security advisor!

    This was "intel" provided by another country and now his to share - with the Russians in the Oval Office of all places!

    It's incredible how much the Trump supporters put partisianship over country. There is no damage to the country and our security interests great enough that will ever change their minds. The US is just a prop in their idealogical battle, something to be trashed with reckless disregard when convenient to their cause.

    Trump supporters could "spin" that the sinking of the Titanic - was a success story!

    We all know, however, that if a Democratic president had made these kinds of "self-inflicted" wounds - our conservative "friends" would be first in line to demand his impeachment!

    The source of the intelligence he shared has been out there for months.

    How could this be a danger? If it is, then the daily beast is guilty as well.

    Kremlin news agency that was in the Oval Office for Trump-Russia meeting brags to Russians about leaked intel

    Tass, a news agency owned by the Russian government, reported on Tuesday that President Donald Trump likely passed highly classified information to Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.In a Russian-language report on Tuesday that pointed to The Washington Post‘s original reporting, Tass said that Trump talked “in detail about the new threat posed by the [Islamic State], involving the use of laptops on flights.”

    “Trump said the terrorists may carry out some attacks, and explained what kind of damage they can cause,” the Tass report explained. “He also called the city on the territory controlled by the group where the partner of the US on the exchange of intelligence discovered a new threat.”

    American media were not permitted in the room for Trump’s meeting with the Russian officials, but the White House allowed Tass to attend. The Tass report, however, does not deny that Trump passed secrets to the Russians.


    Putin the puppet-master is just toying with Trump. Amazing Trump's base can't see it.

    Talking Points Memo analysis of the McMaster press conference this morning:

    We were just watching General McMaster’s press conference – which has taken the place of Sean Spicer’s briefing today. The key take away is that McMaster is essentially conceding the accuracy of last night’s reporting (first from the Post and later confirmed by other outlets) but saying that in the context it was okay. It was appropriate. Notably, when it comes to specifics, he is hiding behind classification to refuse to give further answers.

    He also conceded that President Trump made the decision to reveal the information in the spur of the moment. When asked when Trump made the decision and whether his advisors were part of that decision, here are the exact words of response: “He made the decision in the context of the conversation.” In other words, spur of the moment decision, not something he and his advisers decided made sense in advance.

    The gist here is that McMaster is saying yes Trump did it. He was entitled to do it. And I and other advisors were there when it happened and believe that substantively it was the right decision.

    . . . .

    @Johncardillo
    WaPo - "Trump shared forbidden intel"

    McMaster - "Didn't happen"

    Trump - "I shared general security concerns"

    MSM - "Treasonous liars!!"

    No it doesn't, no matter how much you wish it did.

    McMaster's now let us know that it did happen, but it was Trump's prerogative.

    Oh.

    What a difference a day makes in the Trump White House.

    And now it's much less likely that our allies will share classified information with us.

    Meanwhile, Putin is laughing.

    Coming from someone as incompetent at reading a thing right as you consistently prove yourself to be: no thanks; I'll pass.
