Washington Post reports the president revealed highly classified information to Russian officials last week.
Just last week President Donald Trump told NBC News’ Lester Holt that his unprecedented meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S. in the Oval Office was a ‘public’ meeting.
The Washington Post now reports that Trump ‘revealed highly classified information’ to the Russians during his recent meeting.
Current and former U.S. officials told the Post that Trump relayed information from a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
‘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’.
