Trump Shares Classified Information With Russia

How Do You Say 'Quid Pro Quo' In Russian?


The Washington Post reports that Republican President Donald 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 Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.”

“’I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,’ the president said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.”

“The information the president 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.”
