High stakes involved in Trump's revelations to Russia

18 Mai, 2017, 07:02 | Author: Claudine Rigal

The White House denied the report, saying it was "not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Comey".

The Associated Press previously reported on Obama officials' concerns about the transition team's handling of classified material as the Trump team prepared to take the reins of government.

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered on Wednesday to provide a transcript of a controversial Oval Office meeting between President Donald Trump and Russia's foreign minister to prove that Trump did not disclose classified information to the official.

The revelations could further damage Trump's already fraught relationship with US intelligence agencies.

In a letter to acting FBI director Andrew McCabe, Chaffetz demanded the bureau turn over "all memoranda, notes, summaries, and recordings referring to or relating to any communications between Comey and the president" by next Wednesday.

Yatom, who led the Mossad, Israel's spy agency, from 1996-1998, said: "The source might be under very serious danger and a outcome may be that the friendly country will stop conveying such sensitive information to the United States".

The panel's top Democrat, Elijah Cummings of Maryland, a constant Trump critic, called the allegation of Trump pressure on Comey "explosive" and said "it appears like a textbook case of criminal obstruction of justice".

John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said late Tuesday that the developments had reached "Watergate size and scale". The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly, would not say which country's intelligence was divulged.

Fox News, too, reported that it was unable to get on-air comment from Republicans Tuesday evening.

"But we have an obligation to carry out our oversight regardless of which party is in the White House".

"We've discussed promising areas of cooperation, including energy", Putin said, adding that Russian Federation covers 43% of Italy's demand for gas.

The mainstream media hates President Trump.

The official said that Trump boasted about his access to classified intelligence in last week's meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak.

Some of them also mentioned impeachment spurred by a memo from the fired FBI chief that Trump tried to impede the agency's investigation. But the White House has provided differing accounts of the firing.

"If in fact what was in the memo is true, it's very concerning and we need to get to the bottom of that", Kinzinger said on CNN. When that ended, Trump asked everyone to leave except Comey, and he eventually turned the conversation to Flynn.

The intelligence community will not be doing a damage assessment into President Donald Trump's disclosures of classified intelligence to Russian officials, Foreign Policy has learned.

One day after officials declared that reports about Trump's discussions with the Russians were false, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the president had been engaging in "routine sharing of information" with foreign leaders. He used that phrase nine times in his briefing to reporters. "I have people brief me on great intel every day", he said, and then discussed aspects that were learned through the espionage capabilities of a partner.
