Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Donald Trump sparked widespread concern within the US and Israeli intelligence communities earlier this year when he disclosed details of a highly classified Israeli operation to Russian officials, according to a new Vanity Fair report. The Washington Post first reported in May that Trump told Russia's foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, and ambassador to the U.S. at the time, Sergey Kislyak, about the terrorist group ISIS's work to develop a laptop bomb that could pass through airport security undetected -- information Trump had received from Israeli intelligence officials. The information was highly classified and had not been disclosed even to close American allies.

Vanity Fair reported on Wednesday that a top American spy told Israeli intelligence officials during a meeting at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, a few weeks before Trump's inauguration that U.S. intelligence believed Russian President Vladimir Putin had "leverages of pressure" over Trump.

"During a May 10 meeting in the Oval Office, the president betrayed his intelligence community by leaking the content of a classified, and highly sensitive, Israeli intelligence operation to two high-ranking Russian envoys, Sergey Kislyak and Sergey Lavrov.

This is what he told them -- and the ramifications."

I've often looked with concern at the Oval Office party that Pres Trump threw for the Russians. The pictures show the Russians really having a good time with pres trump, probably complimenting him to the extreme so that Pres Trump would lower his guard and reveal something.

Which he apparently did.

The President of the United States is a spy for Russia?

One thing you can say about Russia is that they never undestimated the stupidity of American's electorates.

The Russians played The Dotard in our fool's office, teasing him with flattery ('Wow--you're great!' 'No--that's 8", not 2" ', etc.) and getting him to show off how smart he is by telling our enemy secrets given to us by a trusted source. One can be sure that the Israelis will take our money and weapons and political support, but until Bozo the Orange is out of office will provide scant intelligence support, because they KNOW that the 'leader of the free world' cannot be trusted with secrets...

Of course they do. Who would want a video of a prostitute peeing on you released to the world, especially if you were POTUS?
