Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 16, 2017

The classified information passed on to Russian government officials last week by President Trump originated with the Israeli government, a source briefed on the matter told CBS News' Pat Milton on Tuesday. The New York Times first reported that the intelligence came from Israel. Both the Times and the Washington Post have reported that "highly classified" intelligence provided by a U.S. ally was shared with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lvrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak by Mr. Trump at a White House meeting last week. ... In January, multiple Israeli newspapers reported that their country's government had been warned by U.S. intelligence officials not to be cautious when sharing information with Mr. Trump because it could be passed on to Russia. Israel's primary rival in the region, Iran, is a close Russian ally, meaning that information shared with Moscow could potentially wind up with Tehran.

Let's see...the people in the room with Trump and the Russians (including the Russians) state emphatically that the source or methods were not revealed but "anonymous current and former White House officials" confirm to the NY Times and CBS news that the source was Israel.

If I was the Mossad I would be more pissed at the NYT and CBS than anyone in that meeting.

Trump ---------- out Israeli secrets after being stroked by Russian spies in the oval office.
McMaster had to call the CIA and NSA to let them know and to let Israel know.
Outraged US and Israeli intelligence staff leaked like Russian hookers.
All this before little d's visit to the ME.
I can't stand all this winning.

lol you are the one playing apologist. Russian press leaked info about the specifics of the Mossad agent. That means most of America now holds Trump and other trumpster fires like you personally responsible.

No, the NYT first published that it came from Israel, and they didn't get that from straight from Trump, but from a current or former WH official.

BTW, never voted for Trump, not a supporter, but I do enjoy watching the hysterics of DR Left mouthbreather like yourself.

Right. Because Trump proving the assertions of a foreign government (that he is an untrustworthy idiot who'd blab intelligence to Russia) perfectly true is something to think "meh *shrug*" over.

Idiot.

Funny how many claim this yet can't bring themselves to utter a criticism against him. Everyone else, but not him.

But the left are the mouthbreathers. Suuuuurreee.

I can refer you to this very thread where you attempt to excuse Donnie's ineptitude.

Or. Perhaps. (Though I'm sure we're both quite over it.) I can refer you to the proposed remittance tax you claimed fulfilled Donnie's promise to have Mexico pay for his imaginary wall.

Hell. Donnie could announce the wall has completed construction and most Dump supporters would not only believe him. But adamantly confess to having visited it.

I am criticizing the sources not excusing anything that Trump did or didn't do. I am pointing out the unreliability of the unnamed sources in comparison to the actual people who were in the room. I am pointing out the mindless hysteria that a discussion about something that the US banned on airplanes seven weeks ago from Muslim countries is causing amongst the DR Left.

As for the remittance tax, that was proposed numerous times before Trump even announced that he was running, and while I know you don't like it or agree with it, it was an answer to your question. Deal with it.

Challenge Accepted

Tony is right on #6 and I think partially right on #7, but I think that Trump, while incredibly vain, has honed his negotiating skills in NYC real estate which is one of the toughest arenas in the US, if not the world. I'm pretty sure the Xi isn't underestimating him in that regard. He also has to realize that he isn't bluffing when he says that he will use force if necessary, which is a Yuuuuge change from the prior Administration.

Trump had, as I like to say, a Moment of Clarity (tm) on the China Manipulation issue, especially in light of how the Yuan has been pummeled lately against the $, so this was an easy "give" to get some cooperation from the Chinese on the NK front.

#9 | Posted by Rightocenter

He absolutely is bluffing and China knows it.

There are plenty of dead Syrians and ISIS fighters that would argue that point with you...if they could.

#14 | Posted by Rightocenter

Actually it was still in the courts.

Be that as it may, it is still a yuge stretch to say this weakened LGBT protections.

LOL

1. I am agreeing with Tony about Trump and talking about Xi not underestimating Trump when he says he will use force. Still not supporting what he did.

2. The Moment of Clarity is a backhanded slap at someone who is usually wrong but finally got something right, but you knew that, right?

3. Whoever posted that said that Trump was bluffing about firing off cruise missles, I was merely pointing out that he already did that in Syria.

4. That was about an executive order that had little or no impact on LGBTQ rights and I was pointing that out.

Maybe you do need Hans, not that it will do you any good.

Here's an idea. Once (If) the republicans repeal ACA. Let's keep a tally of the number of Republican congressmen who get ass cancer, compared to the number of poor people who die from lack of healthcare.

It will be a laugh riot.

Trump did nothing wrong...it was the media that leaked the underlying story. This means Israel is unhappy with Trump. The Wussies and Rethugs can and will impeach if they want to. And, what Israel wants, they want.

Russiagate has been cultivated by the Wussies and their confected #Resistance to provide a rationale to install a more stable and predictable Rethug president who will color within the established partisan lines, and with whom the Wussies can more effectively plan wars and Grand-Bargain away Social Security and Medicare.
