Intel shared for 'humanitarian reasons'

Intel shared for 'humanitarian reasons'

The new details comes a day after The Washington Post revealed that Trump told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov classified information regarding a laptop bomb threat and revealed the Syrian city where the information was gathered.

Trump defended his right to share anti-terrorist information with Russian Federation.

Starting with press secretary Sean Spicer insisting inaccurately that President Donald Trump drew record-setting inauguration crowds, top presidential advisers have provided information that is provably false or contradicted by others in the White House, including Trump himself.

Shapiro was most concerned, however, that the president's move could make Israel think twice about sharing intelligence with the United States, warning that it will "inevitably cause elements of Israel's intelligence service to demonstrate more caution".

The intervention by Putin could turn up the pressure on the White House to provide its own transcript of the meeting. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the president's comments were "wholly appropriate".

Yesterday (May 15), it was reported that Donald Trump leaked classified intelligence about an ISIS plot involving laptops on airplanes during a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergei Kislyak at the White House.

The reports have prompted serious concerns among lawmakers and intelligence officials about the president's handling of classified information.

"If the U.S. administration finds it necessary, we are ready to provide the record of the conversation between Trump and Lavrov to the Senate and Congress", Putin said. "I have people brief me on great intel every day", just before revealing the intelligence.

U.S. officials told Reuters that while the president has the authority to disclose even the most highly classified information at will, in this case he did so without consulting the ally that provided it, which threatens to jeopardise a long-standing intelligence-sharing agreement.

Violence Breaks Out During Protest At Turkish Embassy In Washington, D.C.
At Tuesday's talks in Washington, Mr Erdogan also said he had raised the issue of US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen . The altercation outside the ambassador's residence occurred hours after the Trump-Erdogan meeting.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., pleaded for "less drama" from the White House. But the White House has provided differing accounts of the firing.

Trump is scheduled to visit Israel during his first trip overseas as president starting later this week. In a statement to the New York Times, Israeli ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, reaffirmed the close counterterrorism partnership between Israel and the US. They may choose to withhold information from the President of the United States.

But other nations appeared to be reconsidering. Such sharing "could be a risk for our sources", the official said.

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.

The White House on Tuesday vigorously pushed back on the report, first disclosed by the Washington Post.

Trump's national security adviser, Lt. Gen. HR McMaster, told reporters he was not anxious that intelligence sharing among allies would stop, the Times reported.

But the intelligence scandal could corrode trust among allies who shared classified information with the United States on the understanding that it will go no further. Even more remarkable is that Trump chose to confide in representatives of an adversary, who could relay the information to its allies Iran and Syria, bitter enemies of Israel, and potentially find the source. Some of the most closely guarded secrets in intelligence work aren't what people know, it's how they know it.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called for Congress to have immediate access to a transcript of Trump's meeting with the Russians, saying that if Trump refuses, Americans will doubt that their president is capable of safeguarding critical secrets.

Democrats pointed out that Ryan had called for Democrat Hillary Clinton to be denied classified briefings after Comey concluded a year ago that she was careless in how she handled classified information over her email accounts.
