The Washington Post released a story saying Trump released classified information to Russian officials at a meeting. National security Advisor McMaster denies this. Do you think the story is valid?

Guys, the story is verified to be true now. Trump himself admitted it.

What is true is that leaders have classify conversations with one another. However whoever linked this information from the White House has created a felony and should be prosecuted for putting our nation at risk.

They know publishing fake news destroys their credibility, which is all that matters to a news organization, but they just cannot help themselves. They're like drug addicts pumping put their own mothers to get their next hit of Trumpophobia.

McMaster said it did not happen as reported. AKA It happened differently than reported.

Do you think that information is often shared between world leaders? Do you think it's the prerogative of those leaders? Do you think that the press and this article serves our interests or those of the US?

Is it their prerogative? Yes. Is it shared freely often? No. He's a showboat. He was grandstanding

According to the New York Times, he shared information about ISIS. President Trump has said numerous times that he would like to work with Russia on defeating ISIS. Why wouldn't he share information about a terrorist organization that both countries have an interest in defeating?

It was valid that Hillary leaked classified information but what good did that revelation do. It matters not.

Looks like there's no source.

I don't know how to link a source into my poll, but anyway the Washington Post story claims officials, past and present, and cited sources. Everything contradicting right now and there is no certain truth yet.

Sounds like another BS hit piece. Like when they completely fabricated a story about Russia hacking a power grid.

McMaster didn't deny the story. He delivered a carefully crafted statement "At no time -- at no time -- were intelligence sources or methods discussed. ". The original story talked about information being given by Trump which could be used to identify sources. Notice that McMaster never denied that Trump provided the Russians with highly classified information that was given to US intelligence sources under pretty tight conditions.

Johnomilla I see that you've only done 18 polls, so I'm going to walk you through linking a source. I found out REALLY fast when I joined SOH that links to back up what you're claiming are required by many people! Lol

Do you know how to copy and paste? If so, all you have to do is copy and paste the website address into the small rectangular box that is up under the main poll question section, where it says URL.

JD ... we all saw the WashPo article, but there are no sources cited in the article! Who is backing up the unsubstantiated claim that's made in the article. The president and the other three people on the room have all said it didn't happen.

The president has now admitted to doing it. So who's lying? Him or McMaster

Admitted to doing what? The president has authorization to declassify, the Bezos Post reported that Trump shared highly classified information, which is false since it was previously declassified.

Don't act like he knows what he's doing. He was grandstanding.

Sweet ... and what was it when MrO was caught with the hot mic when he promised the Russian president that he'd have more flexibility after the election?

Read McMasters denial. He chooses words pretty carefully.
