Speaking in front of the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, former CIA Director John Brennan said he regularly shared classified information with the Russians during his time at the intelligence agency.
"I shared classified information with the Russians while I was director of the CIA. The CIA on routine basis shares classified information with Russians on terrorism matters. It doesn't mean it becomes unclassified, it means that it maintains the classification but is releasable to Russia or other partners so that in itself is not unprecedented," Brennan said.
The comments come after a week of criticism over President Trump's alleged sharing of classified information about ISIS with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during a recent meeting at the White House. According to the Washington Post, the President shared the intelligence without permission or vetting from the intelligence community. Brennan backed up that assertion "if press reports are true."

You guys sure have no shortage on propensity to exaggerate.
Obama talked about sharing terror intelligence with Russia. This isn't even a revelation.
What we people overly prone to histrionics are talking about with Trump is that allegedly it was stuff that shouldn't have been shared with the Russians... and we acknowledge allegedly.
Now give me my tissues back, bully.
