Adam Schiff says sharing intelligence with Russians is 'mind-boggling'

Donald Trump Defends Sharing'Terrorism Facts With Russians

Its sources allege the president revealed intelligence about ISIS developing bombs in laptop computers. Trump has frequently said he wants to improve US relations with Moscow, damaged by years of disagreement over Russia's role in Ukraine and its backing for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Mr Trump, in a tweet sent Tuesday morning, cited "humanitarian reasons" for making the disclosure.

"If it proves to be true that the American president passed on internal intelligence matters, that would be highly worrying", Burkhard Lischka, a senior German lawmaker, said in a statement to The Associated Press.

Trump later was informed that he had broken protocol and White House officials placed calls to the National Security Agency and the CIA looking to minimize any damage. The classified information had been shared with the president by an ally, violating the confidentiality of an intelligence-sharing agreement with that country, the official said. Trump tweeted that he shared with Russian Federation "facts pertaining to terrorism and airline safety". His action raised fresh questions about his handling of classified information and his dealings with Russian Federation, which is widely considered an adversary by many US officials and Western allies.

There was another topic, indeed, and it involved neither Twitter forums with young people in Saudi Arabia nor performances of the La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra during the G7 summit on Sicily, both of which are on the president's agenda.

A growing number of Republican and Democratic lawmakers are calling on President Donald Trump to hand over the transcript of the White House meeting last week in which he revealed highly classified information to Russia's foreign minister and ambassador, according to current and former US officials.

The ally who gave the United States the information did not give Trump permission to share it with Russian officials, the report further alleged.

Lawmakers expressed shock and concern yesterday at the news of Trump's disclosures, which jeopardised a critical source of intelligence on Isis (Islamic State), according to current and former USA officials.

I don't know when we would be playing that game'. "(Daley) Blind played today after 90 minutes on Thursday. I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0. "I don't think that Paul has the conditions to play".

Republicans in Congress are calling for briefings and pleading for "less drama" at the White House following revelations that President Trump shared classified intelligence with Russian Federation - but most are muted in their criticism of him.

"At no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed and the President did not disclose any military operations that weren't already publicly known", he said. I was in the room.

The CIA is declining to comment.

"Never before have I witnessed a senior government official so carelessly threaten an intelligence-sharing relationship", a former senior intelligence official told CNN. "I think national security is put at risk by this leak and leaks like this", he said. Ryan's office said he hoped for a full explanation, while McConnell said he wished for a little less drama from the White House.Other Republicans, however, expressed concern. "This confuses me to no end".

The officials, who were not authorized to discuss the matter and spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Israel previously had urged the United States to be careful about the handling of the intelligence that Trump discussed.

The Times reports that new digital clues connect the WannaCry ransomeware attacks to North Korean-linked hackers. "You've got to be kidding me". "So the President determines the system of designating classified information through Executive Order, and he is entitled to depart from it at (sic) well". "It's going to go to the Syrians, It's going to go to the Iranians - Russian allies", Baer said.

Trump appeared to confirm the report Tuesday morning on Twitter. He is not just another personality. At least some of the details that the United States has about the plot came from the Israelis, the officials said. Trump said in an interview that Comey's ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election had factored into Trump's decision to fire him. The meeting was on the president's public schedule but American press was not allowed in; images of the meeting were made available through Russian state media.
