Thus far, Donald Trump’s term in the Oval Office as the 45th President of the United States has been inundated with allegations of an unlawful connection with Russia. Trump’s praise of Russian president Vladimir Putin and national security adviser Mike Flynn’s dismissal after his misconduct with Russian officials have done little to deter his detractors, and Democrat outrage intensified when President Trump fired James Comey, the director of the FBI and the man investigating the link between the Trump administration and Russia.
A Washington Post report claimed that Trump had disclosed “highly classified” information in a meeting with Russian Ambassor Sergey Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. In response, White House officials denied such a disclosure took place. But now, President Trump has defied the rhetoric coming from his own administration. On Twitter, the President confirmed that he did indeed share information with Russian officials.
