Donald Trump Putting US Intelligence Ties At Risk

Report: Trump Revealed 'Top Secret' Info During Meeting With Russia FM

If that's not chilling enough, there is the distinct possibility the Russians may have a complete transcript of what Trump said, since their state-owned news agency, Tass, was allowed to remain in the room when US news media was barred. At first, the White House pinned the decision on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who'd written a scathing memo about Comey's handling of a probe into Hillary Clinton's use of email.

Vice President Mike Pence insisted that national security adviser Mike Flynn had not discussed Obama-era Russian sanctions when he and Kislyak spoke during Trump's transition to power.

But White House officials were left red-faced after photos of the smiling pair were released by Russian media over Twitter.

But many in the counter-terrorism community say what the President did was a mistake.

Diabetes drug raises risk of foot and leg amputation
Untreated type 2 diabetes can cause blindness, nerve and kidney damage and heart disease. Patients should also be monitored for the signs and symptoms of complications.

U.S. lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle have voiced astonishment at the allegations and demanded a full explanation from the White House. Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader and a stalwart supporter of Mr. Trump, said in a television interview Tuesday that he "would like a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things".

Trump could not have divulged sensitive intelligence sources and methods because he had not been briefed on them, McMaster said, adding that the president "wasn't even aware of where this information came from". Corker called what's happening in the White House a "downward spiral".

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters outside the White House that the "story that came out tonight, as reported, is false".

“The president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries including threats to civil aviation, ” McMaster said.

Putin jokingly said of Lavrov, "I will have to reprimand him because he shared these secrets neither with me nor with the Russian secret services which is very inappropriate on his part".

"I don't have information I'm at liberty to share", Freeland said.

The reversal in posture from the White House Tuesday induced whiplash in a now-familiar way: Officials went from uncategorically denying the content of Monday night's Washington Post report to essentially admitting its validity but pooh-poohing its relevance. "The idea that this is Kumbaya, even between Britain and the USA, or Canada and the US, is incorrect", said Ms. Kayyem.

As president, Mr. Trump occupies a unique position with respect to classified information. "Revealing classified information at this level is extremely unsafe and puts at risk the lives of Americans and those who gather intelligence for our country". The partner did not give the United States permission to share the information with Russian Federation, the Post said. If the President comes to a considered judgment that something should be revealed, it is "his call to make, constitutionally". Russian Federation has one of the most sophisticated intelligence-gathering systems in the world and could conceivably trace the information back to its source in the field. As the group grew to more than 20 people, press aides walked silently by as journalists asked for more information.

Honoring Law Enforcement this National Police Week
Each year the nation loses an average of 140-160 law enforcement officers in the line of duty. May 15 is designated nationally as Peace Officers Memorial Day.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday the government has confidence in its relationship with the United States, and will continue to share intelligence with Britain's most important defense and security ally. Only a Russian Foreign Ministry photographer was allowed in to document the meeting; no US media were allowed.
