    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 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.

    The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

    Linking a WaPo article is more offensive than linking a top 50 list in slideshow format.

    MOAB's don't have to know the inner workings of the IS, just the vicinity.

    Not surprised. It's amazing at how little attention this will receive. Trumpism has already exhausted the public's sense of normalcy.

    I have no idea if this is true or not. If it happens to be it's not good at all, but it has been a rough couple of weeks for the WAPO and their anonymous sources. We should all be a bit skeptical.

    McMasters says it's not true, but unarmed former officials say it is.

    News nowadays is so odd.

    First rule of thumb: if something sounds to good to be true it most likely is.

    So classified information leaked to WAPO too. They were given the city but asked not to put it into an article as it jeopardizes assets. Seems extremely sketchy that someone complaining about a Trump leak would leak this sort of data.

    If trump told the Russians, he F'd up.

    But these anonymous sources are even worse than if Trump did F up.

    sources...former officials...derp, derp.

    From the same article. “The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation,” said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, who participated in the meeting. “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”

    I like how Republicans accuse Dems of being incompetent when their last two presidents are Trump and Bush.

    WTF would this leak share that information with the WAPO? Have to question that anonymous source if he's doing that.
