NightSide – Did The President Give Russia Classified Information?

BOSTON (CBS) – A Washington Post story that broke yesterday afternoon cited unnamed White House sources that claimed President Trump divulged classified information during the closed door meeting with Russian officials last week. General McMaster, President Trump’s National Security Advisor, spoke to reporters today and stated that the President did not do anything inappropriate during the conversation, and that any information that was shared was part of normal protocol. Is the media making a big deal out of this story because of an anti-Trump bias? Or do you find this exchange of information disturbing?

  1. According to The New York Times, Trump reportedly discussed Israeli intel regarding an alleged ISIS plot to use laptop computers as hidden bombs. The intelligence wasn’t officially classified. Furthermore, the information was flagged by the National Security Council AFTER Trump’s Russia meeting as “too sensitive to discuss”. Bottom line: a U.S. president has the power to declassify info and speak with foreign leaders about it, especially when it involves potentially imminent terrorist threats.
