This is stunning.
He does whatever he wants, just like any dictator would behave and the longer he is left to do so, the more power to continue he acquires.

Just like the Fredo he is.
Probably went down like this...
"Hey Sergy 1 and Sergy 2 - you don't mind if I call you guys that, right? Guess what we have planned for those Isis Camel Jockeys...(incoherently delivered classified information, along with boasting on how great this plan would be to all the guys who voted for him )" ... "Think Putin would be impressed?"

Disclose classified information to an enemy. At what point do they get off their collective asses and impeach this threat to our nation? Are the waiting till he gives them the football and the codes? WTF!!!

14. It's my understanding that the President is the top classification authority on any/all material...

 

With the authority to basically classify or declassify anything at a whim. Technically, I think the president HAS NO clearance level. His office is quite literally above classification.

If I'm correctly understanding where the presidential office fits into the classified data scheme... then it really doesn't matter what he shared with Russia as long it wasn't nuclear restricted data (the DOE has final classification authority of sensitive nuclear restricted data).

21. Wrong - he wasn't cleared to disseminate it . . .

Do this to your allies enough times, and you don't get their information any more.

Might be kind of a problem down the road.

44. Any classified material is shown only on a need-to-know basis, even to the President.


I'm sure the President could force a look at anything classified, but there would be procedure involved.

17. "Code word information"

 

The intelligence briefings are going to get sparse from here forward. They once dropped Roosevelt from the loop for a while during WWII because a classified document was found in a waste paper bin.

18. The only steps WH officials should take

is notify the FBI the CIA and congress that this man is incompetent and unable to do the job according to the oath he took. Congress should start the impeachment process. If they were really patriots they should appoint NOW an independent investigation on Trumps whole cabal . Get the traitors out .

But it fits his MO to a 'T'.

"Sergei...did you know we're getting some GREAT intel on ISIS out of Israel?
It's BIG LEAGUE, believe me. Never been done before. Not under Obama, not under anybody.

Those jews, they love me. And I love them. My son-in-law is a jew.
Those jews have guys in all their ISIS cells and they're leaking like a sieve.
Hey, ya know I would've won the popular vote if all those illegals hadn't voted illegally."

Heaven only knows what else he has said or done.

28. "I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day."

Jesus wept. He told the Russians where the data had been acquired by our intel partner, creating a shorter list where ISIS can look for a spy.

In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States only learned through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence gathering method, but described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.

Has that changed? I don't remember the standard White House Big Reveal whenever Donnie boy makes a boombie in the pot.

and the Donald got two scoops of vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce and the Russian got one scoop so he got his "just desserts" so don't worry about it. "It was a great meeting. Great. We really had a nice time. I look forward to having more ice cream with my friend in the future. Great friend. Good ice cream."
