HOLY SH*T: Trump Leaked ‘Highly Classified Information’ to Russians During Oval Office Meeting

The negligence and incompetence of America’s Reality TV show president is having serious consequences in the realm of national security. The Washington Post is reporting that Donald Trump revealed “highly classified information” during a meeting last week with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in the White House. The Post writes that:

“Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State. The information Trump 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.”

Putin got his man:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were invited to the White by Trump the day after he fired FBI Director James Comey. That’s something his Russian guests must have appreciated as it would derail the investigation into their interference with the 2016 presidential election. But what Trump disclosed during the meeting could have far reaching consequences.

According to sources familiar with the meeting, Trump was boasting that “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day.” As if to prove it he told them about a threat that the United States could only have learned through a key espionage partner. In the course of his bragging Trump revealed “the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.” This is information so sensitive that the 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.”

Even if Trump held back on some specifics, the exchange was still dangerous because Russia would be able figure out our sources or techniques just with what Trump told them. And betraying the confidence of our partner would likely cause them to refrain from sharing information with us in the future.

The Post noted that “Senior White House officials appeared to recognize quickly that Trump had overstepped and moved to contain the potential fallout.” But significant damage was already certainly done. The disclosure of this sort of data to a hostile foreign country’s top officials is something that was predictable in the election of a novice like Trump. And now he’s proving that our greatest fears about him are coming to pass.

  1. What will Trump supporters claim for an excuse this time.
    All I see is “There is no evidence of a Trump/Russia connection.” If this isn’t evidence then our country is doomed.

  2. Putin’s first formal visit to the White House:

    Putin: Great to see you in person finally, Mr. President. Now, why don’t you pass the time by playing a little solitaire? That’s right. Now, about those classified you were going to give me. Excellent….

  3. This man is a f*cking moron. He needs to lose his security clearance and sent to jail. Who knows who else he has told highly classified intelligence to. He does love to brag.

  4. This is what happens when an idiot and blowhard is in the WH. He is unfit for ANY public office.

  5. Traitor trump needs to have his mouth sewed shut! He has committed treason, endangered lives, just to boast! The clueless, delusional idiot must be removed from office while we still have a country.

  6. Well now Trump’s staff are denying it ever happened, curiously enough as Vox puts it, the denial was about something that the press (specifically the Washington Post) never actually reported.

    The crux of it is that WaPo reported that Trump leaked ” intelligence provided by the source” but the denial went like this: “the story that came out tonight, as reported, is false. … At no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed.”

    Intelligence sources and methods were most certainly NOT what WaPo reported on, WaPo however did report on INTELLIGENCE ITSELF being leaked. And the Russians could easily find out the source with a bit reverse engineering on the leaked intelligence.

  7. Why are the TEA Party Republicans not saying anything about their boy, Donnie? All of them claim to be the most Loyal Americans, which is BS, yet they ignore the danger to our nation by their choice to lead America. It is shameful that no Republicans are demanding an Investigation of Donnie’s 7 Russian connections from Flynn to Rex Tillerson, Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and Donald J Trump Jr. who was bragging about all the Money he gets from Russia for Donnie’s Golf Courses. Where are the Taxes showing who he owes money to in Russia? Now that he did commit Treason by exposing our Nation’s Intelligence methods to the Russians for his tiny ego will any Republican take a stand and start an Investigation? Jeff Sessions did commit Perjury in his Job Interview before the US Congress about his conversations with the Russian spy, twice, yet all the Republicans ignore his Perjury. The Republicans are responsible for their choice, and that choice is very dangerous to all of us.

    • Power is more important to republicans than patriotism. But I believe he will be dumped before the mid-terms.
