The gist of the newest manufactured 'scandal':
- As usual no evidence is offered
- White House has already denied it
- Is WaPo's position Trump should keep ISIS' secrets?
Pro-tip for people trying to discern fake news from the main stream media: whenever a salacious story appears out of nowhere, typically of an incredulous nature, copy and paste the article into a word press file to see if the word count is more than 1,500.
Usually, the media propagandists dress up their fake reports with a lot of subterfuge, in order to give it the semblance of importance. Any normie might see tonight's Washpo report, claiming the President revealed top secret info, without naming sources or even the slightest details of what the intel was about, and think it was important, since it was so long and wordy.
Meanwhile, the report is 100% shit, without sources or anything in it to be taken seriously.

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 Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.
The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.
“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.”
One day after dismissing Comey, Trump welcomed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — a key figure in earlier Russia controversies — into the Oval Office. It was during that meeting, officials said, that Trump went off script and began describing details of an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.
For almost anyone in government, discussing such matters with an adversary would be illegal. As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law.
Soooo, literally nothing.
Thank you Julie Tate and Ellen Nakashima for wasting 5 minutes of my time reading this complete shit.
