Trump talk with Russians 'wholly appropriate,' adviser says

McMaster would neither confirm nor deny that Trump had divulged top secret information.

White House officials denounced the report, saying the president did not disclose intelligence sources or methods to the Russians, though officials did not deny that classified information was disclosed in the May 10 meeting.

NBC reported Israel was the source of ISIS-related intelligence that President Donald Trump shared with Russian Federation last week, according to three government officials with knowledge of the matter. "There really is no process for it", said Barry J. Pollack, a white-collar criminal-defense lawyer who has done work on high-profile leak cases, including representing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Powell flatly said: "This story is false".

One: "President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre", Conway said February 3 on MSNBC. He appeared to be suggesting that Trump had not knowingly compromised a confidential source, but the statement also indicated that the president had not asked his advisers for detailed information about the intelligence report he'd received. "And the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known".

He also said Mr Trump had not been aware of the source of information that was discussed with the Russian officials. "I'd like to think somebody from the White House who was in the room is going to get on the phone and tell me what they said". "Their on-the-record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources" in the news report, he said.

Oil prices up 2% after deal to extend supply cut
Futures climbed for a fifth day in NY , extending a 2.1 per cent jump Monday after the Saudi and Russian energy ministers said they favour extending curbs until the end of March.

As President I wanted to share with Russian Federation (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining.

"Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russian Federation to greatly step up their fight against [IS] & terrorism".

"I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community", Trump tweeted Tuesday.

At first, the White House pinned the decision on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who'd written a scathing memo about Comey's handling of a probe into Hillary Clinton's use of email. Garland, the federal judge nominated to the Supreme Court a year ago by President Barack Obama, was denied a Senate hearing by McConnell.

It wasn't immediately clear what type of threats to civil aviation were mentioned during the meeting.

Other countries, including Arab allies, also supplied some intelligence that drove the U.S. to impose restrictions on laptops and other electronics on flights from 10 countries in the region.

Could Kaepernick end up with the Seahawks? Social media sounds off
Kaepernick, 29, lost his starting job with the 49ers midway through the 2015 season and reclaimed it in October of past year . He was arrested later for violating his probation because of the same incident.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer urged the White House to immediately release transcripts of the meeting with the Russians to the relevant lawmakers probing alleged interference by Russia in the election.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas said he'd withhold judgment until he learns more "in a classified setting" - a comment that implied such a briefing would take place. However, it remains largely unclear what exact information the president reportedly shared and how it would directly threaten American lives. "He wasn't briefed on the source".

"I can not comment specifically on that", Spicer said. "But from what I heard of it, there was none".

Just a week prior to Trump's inauguration in January, investigative journalist Ronen Bergman reported in the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot that U.S. officials under the Obama administration warned their Israeli counterparts against sharing classified information with the then President-elect, saying they believed Putin to have "leverages of pressure" over Trump.

But the press secretary said he was "pleased" with Israel's assurances of confidence in its intelligence-sharing relationship with the Trump administration.

Australia is a member of the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing program with the U.S., Canada, Britain and New Zealand. Trump also identified the city in the Islamic State's territory where the US ally had been monitoring the plot through a valuable and ongoing stream of intelligence. And one of Russia's closest allies, Iran, is one of Israel's primary rivals.
