Trump Claims 'Absolute Right' to Share Info with Russian Federation

Trump Claims 'Absolute Right' to Share Info with Russian Federation

The president had been engaging in "routine sharing" with foreign leaders, he said, arguing that some of the information was publicly available.

It was, perhaps, even more remarkable that Trump chose to confide in representatives of an adversary, who could use the information to find its source.

A US official who confirmed the disclosure to The Associated Press said the revelation potentially put the source at risk.

The Russian government today dismissed a Washington Post report that President Trump shared classified information with members of the Russian government during a meeting last week, calling it "nonsense" devoid of facts. The Washington Post first reported the disclosure.

Trump described his talks with the Russians as "an openly scheduled" meeting at the White House.

"I get great intel". The threat related to laptops carried on airplanes, according to a senior USA official. In a single week, Trump fired the FBI director, told different stories about why, became the target of a congressional investigation that's expanding into money-laundering, shared intelligence with Russian Federation, offered shifting explanations for the latter, and then wound up being accused of wading into a police investigation.

Under the new policy implemented by the Obama administration, officials printed materials requested by the transition team at the White House and only allowed the documents to be viewed on site.

The president's action drew rare criticism from some Republicans, who are desperate to get the White House refocused on health care and tax changes.

Phil Mudd, a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst, said on "New Day" the fact that Trump chose to discuss classified information but did not ask Russian Federation about its role in the 2016 election is problematic.

This latest stumble shows a leader once again indulging his vanity, boasting of his "great intel" and clumsily attempting to curry favor with Russian Federation, in the naive thought that doing so would somehow transform a hardened adversary that hacked the USA election into an ally.

American intelligence agencies are uniform in their conclusion that Russians hacked the US election. That breakdown endangers not only this nation's security, but that of other nations as well. "It wouldn't likely stop partners from sharing life-saving intelligence with the Americans, but it could impact the trust that has been built, particularly if sharing such information exposes specific intelligence gathering methods", said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak about such intelligence sharing.

Trump "seems to have lost confidence in just about everybody", the source said.

That sounds a lot more like a confirmation of the Washington Post story than a denial.

Starting with press secretary Sean Spicer insisting inaccurately that President Donald Trump drew record-setting inauguration crowds, top presidential advisers have provided information that is provably false or contradicted by others in the White House, including Trump himself.

The New York Times, citing a current and a former American official, reported the newest wrinkle in a story that has consumed the Trump administration since Monday night.

According to USA and diplomatic officials, Israeli intelligence was a source for some of the information about ISIS bomb-making capabilities. "I can't share even I come out of meeting and they ask 'what did you think?" A Republican foreign policy hand who turned down a spot in the administration during the presidential transition over concerns about the Trump team's ties to Russian Federation said the situation actually looked much rosier just two weeks ago.

Burr, a Republican, and Sen.

"No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly", he said.

The latest political storm, coupled with the still-potent fallout from Trump's recent disclosure of classified information to Russian diplomats, overshadowed all else in the capital and beyond. Trump's loose lips shared this data with senior Russian officials in the Oval Office a day after he fired FBI Director James Comey, head of the agency investigating Russia's interference in America's election and its connection to Trump. In the letter to Comey, Trump said the firing was necessary to restore "public trust and confidence" in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. And when Sally Yates, then serving as acting attorney general, told the White House that Flynn had lied when he denied discussing USA sanctions with Kislyak, and thus could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail, Trump waited 18 days to fire him.
