Debunked. The information wasn't classified. No law was broken. Keep up the faux outrage so we don't talk about Seth Rich.

Just for the record is trump getting russia to help destroy ISIS a bad thing?
krazy?
silly?
kay?


Sure, as long as the information shared is not sensitive. Remember, Russia is not officially our ally. They could use sensitive intel against us. We would be stupid to 100 percent trust Russia.

ISIS troop movements are "sensitive". You need a better descriptor than "sensitive".
Russia is not our ally, but they seem to actually want to destroy ISIS.

Just imagine if past administrations were held to the same standard, we wouldn't have the current one.

Food for thought.

Is it twelve years? They subpoenaed Nixon and he had to turn them over immediately. We heard them on the news and three days later Nixon resigned.

The Washington Post claims that:

Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

McMaster very carefully worded a blurb for the press when he accidentally walked into a throng of reporters, denying Trump shared anything classified about certain things with Russian officials in the Oval Office.

Trump tweets this morning that he did share info with Russia as is his right (and it is) but he basically threw McMaster under the bus in the process. I don't think McMaster is lying, but Trumps tweet was extremely careless with McMasters reputation. In typical fashion Trump burns every one around him.

What seems likely to me is that Trump gave away a location of an intelligence source to the Russians because he's too much of a braggart that had to flex his 'see how important I am' boner.

Food for thought: Why is congress not doing its job? They are the only body that can save the American people and our allies from the disastrous president. Why is it so important to do tax breaks over protecting americans? What do they know we don't know is coming?

what I am getting from all the stories on this is that the classified information was shared to us by another country....
so trump wasn't free to share this information really....
then someone in the room, or maybe someone listening in(????), was concerned about what he shared, that it was enough for russia to connect the dots and follow them to the source.. so they informed the appropriate agencies that a source may have been compromised in case there is assets or sources that might need to be protected.
and then, someone, or many someones leaked the story out to the press, which probably shouldn't have happened and is making russia study whatever was said a little more closely trying to figure out just what the great secret is.

I don't think that even the intelligence agencies have enough information at this point to know if there will be any damaged caused by this. but it is something that they should be looking into!!!

I think there's a lot less desire to come to Trumps defense this week than there was last week.

Is the single greatest threat to the National Security of the United States it's president?



The greatest threat to NATSEC and this country as a whole.

Isn't ISIS.

ISn't Russia.

It's Trump haters collectively doing everything they can to undermine a duly elected president of the United States.

For NO OTHER reason than they lost an election, and can't stand the thought of anyone else in power.

Those are the traitors to the republic.

The standard was set by the past.
It's this administration who is not maintaining the high standards set for the president.

Lol who is 'they' and how is information from secure briefings being leaked to the press (if it's true at all)...

There were plenty of inept cabinet people in previous administrations - that is somewhat of a requirement it seems to become political apointees...

High standards is largely arguable. Didn't we have the "how do you prefer your lies" discussion?

Trump said nothing the Russian's didn't already known.

In fact there's not much they don't know.

This country can hardly keep a 'secret'.

Intelligence is the mechanism that has kept us safe since 911. You would think, our elected leaders would know that. I didn't lose anyone in the attack. But I remember very clearly sitting on the side of the road listening to the radio as it happened. My kids were in elementary then and I had just dropped them off. That was horrible and I am now so afraid of another attack and I expect a nuclear attack any day. This is very bad.
