Senate Intelligence wants information about Trump's disclosure to Russians

Over the long term, however, such behaviour "can potentially have very serious consequences for America's intelligence relationships across the world", Curran said.Rhys Ball, who formerly worked for New Zealand's intelligence service and is now a Massey University security and defence analyst, said he thought it would be "business as usual" for the "Five Eyes" community."Clearly someone has gulped at what was discussed or exchanged".

SYDNEY/WELLINGTON President Donald Trump's alleged disclosure of highly classified information to Russia's foreign minister is unlikely to stop allies who share intelligence with Washington from cooperating, officials said on Tuesday.Some experts added, however, that the reports could undermine trust between partners."If this really happened, it's an unfortunate episode", said Adam Thomson, a former British ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and now with the European Leadership Network think-tank in London.

Trump's tweets did not address whether he revealed classified information about the Islamic State group, as published reports have said and as a USA official told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

On Monday, McMaster told reporters: "The president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries including threats to civil aviation". He's questioned the competence of intelligence officials, challenged their assessment that Russian Federation meddled in last year's election to help him win, and accused them of leaking information about him and his associates. Trump's tweets did not say whether he revealed classified information about IS, as published reports have said and as a USA official told The Associated Press. The Post stated that "the information the president relayed had been provided by a us partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the USA government".

"This action is a threat to our national security, endangers diplomatic relations, and calls into question the administration's decision making", she said in a statement.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly, would not say which country's intelligence was divulged.

Defiant Trump says he had 'absolute right' to share information with Russia
Trump says he wanted to share with Russian Federation "facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety". Trump's claims, calling the reports that the US president disclosed intelligence "complete nonsense".

Asked why the NSA and Central Intelligence Agency were put on notice if the revelations were not problematic, McMaster cast the notification as being provided "from an overabundance of caution".

The details are reportedly so secret that even close American allies did not know about them. CIA Director Mike Pompeo was to brief members of the House intelligence committee later in the day. "He is President of the United States", he said Tuesday on "New Day". Some of the leaders he'll meet come from countries the USA has intelligence-sharing agreements with.

White House officials disputed the report, saying Trump did not disclose intelligence sources or methods with the Russians, though they did not deny that classified information was disclosed in the May 10 meeting. He's openly questioned the competency of intelligence officials and challenged their high-confidence assessment that Russian Federation meddled in last year's presidential election to help him win.

The disclosure also risks harming his credibility with US partners around the world ahead of his first overseas trip. In his press briefing on Tuesday, he said that the "premise" of the story was false - in other words, that what Trump did was improper. It allows Islamic terrorists to change their tactics, he said.

The revelation also prompted cries of hypocrisy.

As president, Trump has the ability to disclose classified information largely as he chooses. He also declined to specifically say whether Trump shared information about the location of the ISIS intelligence, saying that the city "was nothing you couldn't get from open sourced reporting".
