On Tuesday’s Radio Times, host Marty Moss-Coane discussed this developing story as it continues to dominate headlines and discussions within the Beltway.
Yesterday’s report that President Trump had shared highly classified information with Russian officials is considered problematic by most observers for a variety of reasons including the fact it was obtained by a foreign ally. Earlier today, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster defended the President’s divulging the classified information by saying “the president wasn’t even aware where this information came from.”
On Tuesday’s Radio Times, host Marty Moss-Coane discussed this developing story as it continues to dominate headlines and discussions within the Beltway. She was joined by The Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman and by the Wall Street Journal’s Shane Harris, who explained how Trump’s discussion with the Russian ambassador and foreign minister did not credit the source of the classified information. Harris added “Certainly, in the view of the officials that we talked to last night, [this information was] not meant to be even mentioned in passing, certainly to senior level Russian officials.”
Fineman later added, “he’s already got a fight going on with the Intelligence Community as a whole. They don’t trust him, not only because they think he’s reckless and uneducated, but because he has an affinity for the Russians.”
