BREAKING: Claims made about source of intel Trump shared with Russia

The New York Times and NBC News are reporting that three unnamed U.S. government officials have confirmed that Israel was the source of the ISIS-related intelligence President Trump conveyed to Russian leaders last week.

Neither the Israeli embassy nor the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have commented on the report that Trump revealed sensitive intelligence to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov regarding a laptop bomb threat and divulged the Syrian city where the information was collected.

On Tuesday, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster asserted that Trump’s actions were “wholly appropriate” and “consistent with the routine sharing of information between the president and any leader with whom he’s engaged.”

NBC reports that two U.S. intelligence officials claim that many of those within the intelligence community dispute McMaster’s assertion and are concerned that Trump’s revelation could cause the source of the intelligence, and other countries, to hesitate to confide in the U.S. in the future.

In addition to Israeli officials decline to confirm that they were the source of the information that Trump shared, the White House press sec. would not confirm the allegations. VIDEO:
