Donald Trump Admits White House Lied About Him Not Leaking Classified Info to Russians

Donald Trump undercut his White House aides again, this time, taking to Twitter to admit he did leak classified information to Russian diplomats Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak about ISIS during their White House visit.

The New York Times is absolutely correct with its “Liar or a fool” article about working for Trump. No-one who does will leave with their professional dignity in tact.

Hours after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, NSA Gen. H.R. McMaster and Deputy NSA Dina Powell pushed back against the Washington Post article that Trump had leaked classified information to the Russians, he got on Twitter and threw them under a bus.

Trump tweeted: “As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety.” He continued, “Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”

He followed that up with a third tweet blaming the leakers. Never mind the fact that he leaked classified information to the same people who interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Um, he is at war with the intelligence community, expect more damning leaks to come out.

I will add, his approval rating is under 40 percent. Nobody is scared of him. Period. Like I said, expect more leaks. Donald Trump has made too many enemies in the wrong places in Washington D.C.
