Okay Trump Fuckers, what's your excuse for this one? We have Hillary--who MIGHT have exchanged classified info on an insecure email server--and now we have FatFuck Orange Man who flat out gave Russians classified info.

Go ahead, save face, and defend your farcical bumbling idiot!

If he keeps this up he... still won't be nearly as bad as Hillary Fucking Clinton.

Sounds like classic fake news from the Washington Post.

Democracy dies on Dupont Circle.

Hmmm. BFD. Did FDR share classified info with Churchill and/or Stalin during WW2?

Whatsamatta there, buttercup? STILL upset that a black Democrat held office for 8 whole years? And you people have the nerve to call liberals "snowflakes"? Comedy gold right here, folks. Comedy fucking gold.

Kinda like Comey.

If this is true (there seem to be many denials from the people in the room), I don't see the big deal.

Trump is the president. The president can decide what information to decide with whom. That's why he was elected.

Building a better relationship with the Russians is certainly more important than a single tactic / source, anyway.

Why does Grub think we need to get our Trump news from Darling Felcherballs, of all places? What kind of insane narcissism is this?

The US shares selected classified info with many other countries.

John Podesta decided on the Russian-smear strategy after being defeated:

The Russia stuff being pushed today is just to distract from new revelations about Seth Rich's death:

The "big deal" here is that the source of the information requested it not be repeated without that source's permission because they didn't want to risk being compromised. Now that they are compromised, they likely won't be passing information back to us, which hurts us in the long run.

That's assuming they'd even be alive to do so if Mother Russia has anything to say about it.

I think the real question is: Is the Democratic leadership now universally treasonous? Have we ever ever seen such a broad, sustained and systematic attempt to undermine an elected government?

We elected a president to make these tradeoffs. It's not up to the Washington Post to decide which relationships are more important.

you're acting like there's some strategy involved here. trump wanted to prove that he was important by showing off how much intel he had. in the process he likely burned a source and probably got the source killed, as well as told every other country in the world not to share information with the US. that's great decision making.

mcmaster stood in front of reporters yesterday and told them that 'it didn't happen.' and then trump got on twitter and directly contradicted him. look for mcmaster to resign soon, i can't imagine he'd continue to work for a man who sets him up to lie and then undermines him. he'll resign if he's smart, anyway.
