Fake news from the Washington Post

Deep State Leaks Highly Classified Info to Washington Post to Smear President Trump

“At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly,” said Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

McMaster later told reporters at the White House, “Two other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on-the-record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources. I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”

“This story is false. The president only discussed the common threats that both countries faced,” added Dina Powell, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy, who also attended the meeting.

The current and former officials told the Post that Trump shared information with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak that was obtained by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing agreement and was so sensitive it was withheld from U.S. allies and restricted within the U.S. government.

Trump: I had ‘absolute right’ to share ‘facts’ with Russia

“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,” he wrote.

“Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry dismissed the bombshell Washington Post report about a planned ISIS operation as “fake” news on Tuesday, Reuters reported, citing the Interfax news agency.

And a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman urged people not to read US newspapers.

Addendum: Governments have powers, individuals have rights.

But Trump is basically correct here. As President he has the power to decide how intelligence is shared and why. Harry Truman knew that. The best presidents do.

So do the best bureaucrats.

Follow that trail

There is no evidence of any wrongdoing by President Trump.

But plenty of evidence points to Barack Obama's abuse of power. Let us follow that trail.

Still think libertarians are paranoid?

This is where we start getting into legalisms. Because Trump and associates were not the direct targets of surveillance, intelligence officials say that Trump was not under surveillance. Technically true and absolutely false.
