YAWNNNNNNNN more FAUX outrage from the lefties. Russia is an ally in defeating ISIS and the information was about an ISIS planned attack that can now be stopped...I guess lefties WANT ISIS to attack eh?
Tell that to the compromised agent from another country who the Russians can now ID. More blood on trump's slimy little hands.

He has already demonstrated this clear enough.

Trump demanded that the IC reveal their sources about the Russians meddling in our elections.

As soon as they did, four Russian cybersecurity experts were arrested for being American spies and one guy turned up dead in the back of his Lexus.

It isn't about whether or not this is legal. You just don't give state secrets out to hostile powers.

Maybe it's true, maybe it's not. How does anyone know how "special" this information is. Oh, WaPo printed it. A newspaper determined to take Trump down.

Libs, a lot of us Trump supporters look at this as just more hysterical bs from the MSM. Let's face it, as President this is Trump's call to make, not anonymous sources determined to delegitimize Trump.
more unnamed sources? shocking.

NAMED sources:

Senior White House officials appeared to recognize quickly that Trump had overstepped and moved to contain the potential fallout.

Thomas P. Bossert, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, placed calls to the directors of the CIA and the NSA, services most directly involved in the intelligence-sharing arrangement with the partner.

One of Bossertís subordinates also called for the problematic portion of Trumpís discussion to be stricken from internal memos and for the full transcript to be limited to a small circle of recipients, efforts to prevent sensitive details from being disseminated further or leaked.

Russia isn't hostile. Russia is an ally especially in our war against ISIS. You lefties hate Russia because ya need someone to blame for losing a home run win of an election!

Good reason to ensure he gets nothing sensitive to spout, heck he may start spewing on Twitter before we know it.

Because he has the 'right' does not make it right...Russia is not our ally...or even our friend.
One day he's blasting our intel agencies..the next he's bragging to the Russians that he gets great intel..briefed everyday.

The man's incompetent..and a menace to our long-term goals as a nation---I bet the NSA, CIA and others think twice about sharing sensitive intel again..with Bigmouth Trump

More crying from the lefties. Its hilarious.

Trump has broad authority to declassify information, so he was probably within his rights to talk about it.

Our president declassifying information to share with our allies in the fight is just HORRIBLE!

Get over it.
So a president could give any information to any foreign country, regardless of how it might harm the US, and it'd be okay? Is that what you're saying here? You're literally arguing that a president could be engaging in textbook treason and that'd be okay. Do you have any honor at all?
