    Intelligence officials say President Trump might have damaged relations with allies, who will now be more cautious in sharing sensitive information with the United States. Democrats say he’s a hypocrite, having lambasted Hillary Clinton for her own handling of classified information. But when Trump spoke about highly classified information with Russian officials in a White House meeting last week, he did not break the law, legal analysts say.

    Most people know he didn't break the law, most people also realize he proved himself to be an idiot on the International stage, potentially damage relationships with allies, and look like a stooge for Putin.

    Trying to avoid WW3 makes him a "stooge" apparently .

    All business was conducted in private but leaked by people looking to undermine his efforts .

    Apparently he wanted to warn the Russians about an anti-terrorism effort and some fuckheads leaked it to the press, putting lives in danger.

    Why shouldn't we have a relationship with Russia where we share intelligence about terrorism on security efforts like this? It just seems so common-sense that it would be mutually beneficial.

    That's the best spin I've heard on his bumble so far.
    "He was just trying to avoid WW3, can't anyone give this poor man a break while he tries to save the world?"

    That doesn't mean he didn't share something that wasn't known.

    "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."

    do you really think US intelligence briefed trump about some really uber hot red alarm stuff and he simply tells it to the russians? this is basically what some bullshit media tells you.
    or was the stuff not even remotely hot?

    That's the story as it has been reported.
    We now have a POTUS who's a national security problem, I'm sure they're being a lot more careful about what they tell Bumbles now
