Only Named Source In WaPo Report On Trump’s Leaking Of Classified Information Denies It

The Washington Post accused President Donald Trump of leaking “highly-classified information” in a recent meeting with Russian officials, but the only named source in the piece denies it.

Citing anonymous officials, the Post claims that Trump revealed to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak unspecified yet high-value information provided by a unidentified partner in the fight against the Islamic State, potentially jeopardizing operations against ISIS and compromising U.S. 

intelligence sources. The president reportedly revealed information surrounding an ISIS plot. Buzzfeed corroborated the story, which cited two anonymous U.S. officials.

White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, the only identified source in WaPo’s report, denies that the president leaked information the U.S. government deemed classified.
