    WaPo: Trump revealed highly classified information to Russians

    BREAKING NEWS
    Washington Post:

    Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian diplomats

    The president’s disclosures to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State — an information-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, current and former U.S. officials said. President Trump appeared to be boasting of the “great intel” he receives when he described a looming terror threat, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

    “The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation,” said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, who participated in the meeting. “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”

    Trump sharing highly classified information with Russia shows his extreme hubris

    The officials The Post spoke with are clearly exasperated. Here’s a sampling of their reactions:

    “Trump seems to be very reckless, and doesn’t grasp the gravity of the things he’s dealing with, especially when it comes to intelligence and national security.” — a former senior U.S. official close to current administration officials

    “Russia could identify our sources or techniques.” — a senior U.S. official

    “I don’t think that it would be that hard [for Russian spy services] to figure this out.” — a former intelligence official who worked on Russia-related issues

    “He seems to get in the room or on the phone and just goes with it — and that has big downsides. Does he understand what’s classified and what’s not? That’s what worries me.” — a former U.S. official
    Trump badly miscalculated the public reaction to his firing of Comey and bungled the explanations; then he went ahead with the Russia meeting anyway; then he did something in that Russia meeting that is only going to feed the narratives that he's (a) in the tank for Moscow and/or (b) totally in over his head as president in ways that are dangerous.

    It's a series of tightly-packed-together errors that can only be accomplished with an extraordinary amount of ego and a lack of a better angel.

    "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."

    I am afraid to get started on how I feel, but this man needs a baby-sitter around the clock.

    "I'm sure Kislyak was able to fire off a good cable back to the Kremlin with all the details" he gleaned from Trump, said the former U.S. official who handled intelligence on Russia.

    The White House readout of the meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak made no mention of the discussion of a terrorist threat.

    Is this treason? It seems as though it would fall under the definition.

    But I don't know.

    Seriously, how much worse does this need to get before we get this criminal out of the White House?

    Also from the article, as President he has the ability to declassify any intel. He's just so blind to the optics. Can anyone still believe he has US best interests at heart?

    Not me. Not America's best interest. Not Americans' best interest.

    Oddly enough, the story has broken on just about every MSM outlet.

    Except Faux Newz.

    Isn't that odd? Maybe their server is down?
