"Reporters spent much of the evening camped out outside of Press Secretary Sean Spicer's office, hoping for answers.

 

At one point, a reporter spotted a handful of staffers, including Mr Spicer and Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, walking into the Cabinet Room.

Muffled yelling was heard coming from the area near the room, but after a reporter tweeted about the noise, press staffers quickly turned up their television volume, blasting the sound to drown out everything else."

 

From today's Telegraph.

The report says he gave them the information spontaneously. I can believe that. He is like a kid showing off a new toy. And now his narcissistic tendencies have shown how he just has to get liked by people. The man is handing over top secrets to the Russians. What next? I believe the calls for his head are going to be louder and more numerous every day now.

I couldn't agree more.  I imagine that anyone with an ounce of pride in our (USA) heritage must be feeling betrayed by our highest office -- regardless of for whom they voted.

 

Wonder how our Special Operations troops fighting ISIS feel right now.

 

A truly sad day for our country.

I'm sure you didn't mean it that way, but this kind of speculation only gives ammo to anti-semites who think that all Jews are agents of Israel or have some sort of sub rosa connection to that nation.

You're correct, only speculation on my part.  Dershowitz is not a national security guy, just a well known attorney.  So to see him talk so emphatically about this was surprising.  But at one point, he did speculate that the source of the intel was probably Jordan or Israel.

WaPo needs to do a better job of naming sources ....

 

Pretty vague description. Smells like a rumor or ear to the wall eaves dropping.

Either way, it indicates a chronically leaky administration which will summarily be dismissed by Spicer et al as fake news... if McMaster's impromptu press statement hasn't done so already.

I saw Dershowitz really go off this morning, like he's never done.  I'm guessing that since he's Jewish, he may be thinking that the ally in question (source of the highly classified intel) was Israeli intelligence.  Those guys don't mess around.  If Israel doesn't trust Trump, they will withhold future intelligence....which would be extremely damaging for US national security. 

Thanks for this perspective. I was suffering from tunnel vision thinking this intel was probably provided by a member of FVEY, however, if it is indeed Israel then as you say Trump could be treated to a fairly cold reception behind closed doors when he visits as the Israeli's take this stuff very seriously.

Thanks for the bolleux response. No in other words I am entering a discussion and was considering with other mature interested adults that source of the classified information was Five Eyes intelligence and now agree that there is a good possibility the intel source could be Israeli. Back in your hole please. By the way there are no 'likes' on the post in question as of now!

Why not wait for more info instead of flopping around like a breathless high school drama student.  You are too eager.

Trump's tweets on mishandled classified info come back to haunt him

 

"Here's a look, in reverse chronological order, at how Trump himself has viewed people who play fast and loose with sensitive material: "

There are 42 posts on here so far, would you like to say that to everyone? Why are you even reading the thread? We are discussing everything that is all over the news at the moment. Do we need your permission? I have not said anything that is not based on an informed knowledge of the intelligence community. Thank you for your comments, but no more are needed.

anyone who believes this fake news is a moron 

the simple fact if it was true, As President he gets to decide what is classified and what is not classified.

and as a fact only the Russians and Syria are doing the job against isis ,so if it was true its the best thing the orange one has done in his short time in office

What he did was not illegal...But...if he continues to operate like the uninformed rube that he is, the tipping point will be reached in Congress, especially if he fails to deliver major items on his agenda like healthcare and tax reform. i think he has 9 months to get some major things done, if he does not placate them with some real work.....President Pence will be the next man up.
