Trump’s Russia Leak Is ‘Far Worse’ Than Reported

Conservative pundit Erick Erickson is vouching for the reliability of a least one source who revealed to Washington Post reporters that Fake President Trump disclosed “highly classified information” while meeting with Russian officials last week.

Erickson knows one of the sources and supports their decision to go to the media, he wrote Tuesday in a blog post for his website, The Resurgent.

“This is a real problem and I treat this story very seriously because I know just how credible, competent, and serious — as well as seriously pro-Trump, at least one of the sources is,” Erickson wrote.

“You can call these sources disloyal, traitors, or whatever you want,” he added. “But please ask yourself a question — if the President, through inexperience and ignorance, is jeopardizing our national security and will not take advice or corrective action, what other means are available to get the President to listen and recognize the error of his ways?”

Erickson wrote that people close to the president find him too insecure to take constructive criticism as anything other than a personal attack. So sources have gone to the media in the hopes that “the intense blowback” may force Trump to recognize his errors.

And in this instance, where Trump’s careless boasting has put at risk both U.S. national security and an ally’s intelligence asset, there’s simply too much at stake not to speak out.

“I am told that what the President did is actually far worse than what is being reported,” Erickson said. “The President does not seem to realize or appreciate that his bragging can undermine relationships with our allies and with human intelligence sources. He also does not seem to appreciate that his loose lips can get valuable assets in the field killed.”

It was reported, I believe on the All-In show on MSNBC, that the foreign government agency that collected this information and shared it with the US, was none other than Mossad.

I wonder if Netanyahu is having second thoughts about bedding down with Republicans?

Red herrings, Dino. You obviously don't believe your own words, as you are shifting the subject to the Rich robbery. This isn't about wikileaks, nor some affluent neighborhood of Washington DC...this took place in the Oval Office of the White House.

Putin apparently taped the visit. He has threatened to release the tapes. I doubt Putin understands espionage as America defines it...be careful what you wish for. Mad

His loose lips could put many professional spies in mortal danger. Agents who infiltrate and mingle with ISIS groups in Syria and beyond - and are thus very helpful to us in the west - they could be in trouble now, thanks to him.

Begs the question why is he so 'nice' to the Russians - it's almost as if he owes them ''favours''.    *wink*

I reckon it's about golden showers.  That, and a 20% share of Rozneft Oil...follow the money, said Mark Felt, Deputy Director of the FBI...otherwise known as Deep Throat.
