Spy Work With Allies Could Chill After Trump Intel Spill

Spy Work With Allies Could Chill After Trump Intel Spill

When President Donald Trump departs Washington on Friday for a nine-day trip to Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican, Brussels and Italy, most of his staff will be left behind and the traveling press corps will be more tightly managed by the foreign host.

What is remarkable about this is that reports in the Israeli press from January said that United States intelligence officials had warned their Israeli counterparts about sharing intelligence with President Trump because of fears he might share such intelligence with Russian Federation.

Trump is delivering an address on Islam Sunday in Saudi Arabia.

The United States introduced a similar rule in relation to flights from ten major global airports in Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Marocco, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. The New York Times is reporting that three administration officials said the most honest - although off-limits - defense they could offer for why the president could not have revealed any intelligence that could have done any harm is that, because of his hasty and indifferent method of reading the intelligence briefings, he didn't know enough to do any harm. President Trump couldn't be trusted, veteran Central Intelligence Agency officials were claimed to have said, and they told the Israelis he'd soon start spilling their secrets. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, called on Trump to operate with "less drama.".

Next up will be the Vatican for an audience with Pope Francis.

It was so nice of The Denver Post's editorial to provide the two choices we must consider in the latest trumped-up "scandal": the president "leaked" to the Russians because they helped him win the election (any evidence of that yet?); or he doesn't know what he is doing.

"Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media".




President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, the man leading the investigation of the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, would have been bad enough.

And then he went back again to electoral politics, accusing Democrats of sour grapes.

Some anonymous Israeli intelligence officials are reportedly "boiling mad and demanding answers". "That's all this is". Really, if a freshman can refuse to spin for the White House, why can't lawmakers with years of seniority in no danger of losing their seats?

This news fire hose, a result of errors forced and unforced for Trump, can have consequences - for the president, for his party and the country.

On the Russian Federation debacle she said, "Once again we are faced with inexplicable stories coming from the White House that are highly troubling". "So that agenda is now being sidelined and they're stuck with him". Opportunities for chaos-inducing leaks will be reduced, and the White House should be able to implement a classic communications plan of having the president's picture in the news match the narrative of his day-to-day itinerary.

When it comes to foreign affairs, the stakes are even higher. Such notices are standard operating procedure after classified material has been divulged, an event that is referred to as "spillage", the official said. The president's son-in-law initially omitted contacts with foreign leaders from a national security questionnaire, though his lawyer has said publicly he submitted the form prematurely and informed the Federal Bureau of Investigation soon after he would provide an update. "And this president is demonstrating none of that". "Russia and the Republic of Cyprus share common or close positions on many issues". But that doesn't mean there aren't potential problems for the GOP.

Whether Comey's documentation proves to be the tipping point for Republicans is unclear.
