  • DA! Trump traded more than handshake with visting Russian.
Remember when Donald Trump met in the Oval Office with high Russian officials, attended by an electronics equipment-laden photographer for a Russian news agency, no U.S. press allowed?

Now the Washington Post reports:

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
Awaiting Tom Cotton and them to explain how Hillary's use of a private server to receive e-mail was ever so much worse. It won't be easy:

“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”
Intelligence sources are slack-jawed.
