President Trump Responds To Reports That He Shared Intel On Terror Plots With Russia By Saying He Had Absolute Right To Share Facts



Zero Hedge: Trump Responds To WaPo Story: "I Had Absolute Right To Share Facts With Russia"

In the aftermath of the WaPo story accusing Trump of improperly sharing highly confidential information with Russia's foreign minister Peskov during their meeting one week ago (and one day after the firing of James Comey), Donald Trump took to Twitter to defend his Russia comments amid mounting criticism he may either have broken the law or acted inappropriately in divulging secret information.

In two tweets, Trump said "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. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism."

WNU Editor: He had every right to do so ..... and as I had mentioned in an earlier post, if these terror plots involved civil aviation, the U.S. is obligated by treaty and security agreements to provide this information to members of ICAO (the UN's civil aviation organisation). The more that I think about it .... especially when I learned that Washington Post reporter Greg Miller did not even bother to contact the only U.S. officials who were in the meeting .... Director of National Security McMaster, Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell and US Secretary of State Tillerson (who have all denied this story) .... this Washington Post story with anonymous sources is beginning to look more as a hit job than anything else.
