    Thanks to Traitor Trump, the US was forced to extract a top-secret source from Russia after Trump revealed classified information to two Russian officials in 2017. The US was concerned that Trump and his administration routinely mishandled classified intelligence and that their actions could expose the covert source as a spy within the Russian government.

    Trump stunned the national-security apparatus and intelligence community when it surfaced that in an Oval Office meeting in May 2017 he shared the information with Sergey Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister, and Sergey Kislyak, then Russia's ambassador to the US.

    Traitor Trump's egregious disregard of strict intelligence-sharing rules to protect highly placed sources "prompted intelligence officials to renew earlier discussions about the potential risk" that the source in Russia would be exposed.

    At the Oval Office meeting, which took place one day after Trump fired FBI Director Comey, Trump boasted to the Russians that firing "nut job" Comey had taken "great pressure" off him.
    That sounds like the reaction of a traitor breathing a sigh of relief.
    Comey had been spearheading the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

    Trump then went on to share with Lavrov and Kislyak intelligence connected to the Islamic State in Syria. The information came from Israel, which had not given the US permission to share it with the Russians because it could have compromised an Israeli source in the region.

    This is not the first time national-security officials have expressed concerns that Trump's recklessness and incompetence could reveal sensitive information about US intelligence-gathering processes and human sources working abroad.

    Late last month, Trump's tweet about US military information he received during a classified intelligence briefing earlier that day immediately set off alarm bells because it included a satellite photo of an Iranian launchpad that was of a much higher resolution and better quality than the commercial satellite images of the site that were publicly available.

    It also contained markers indicating that it was taken by USA-224,one of the US's most secretive spy satellites. Intelligence officials said Trump's tweet would be a gold mine for hostile foreign powers.

    Trump is clearly traitor, and a national security threat.

    Bottom line: this peace deal was in the making for 9 years. But cause trump couldn't take the credit he destroyed it endangering the USA. Like he endangered the USA cause an asset had to be removed from russia. Trump isn't just indirectly working against the USA. He is knowingly and actively directly harming the USA. Treasenous russian asset right there. The only things he is doing as president is hurting the USA and enriching himself. Treason!

    Imagine President Obama having a meeting with the Taliban at camp David on the eve of Sept 11 anniversary ..oh what the Republicans would have said.

  • David J

    President Obama takes out terrorist leaders like OBL. Trump invites terrorist leaders to America for state dinners and photo-ops.
    This whole story about inviting the Taliban to Camp David for talks was just your typical run of the mill Trump buffoonery. First of all, there have been talks going on with the Taliban behind the scenes for almost a year now, and I'm sure there will be more talks in the future. This was all about Trump wanting another Kim Jung Un style photo-op, and it backfired in his orange face like all of his other political stunts.

  • Happy Plants

    No! Just to state that he had a secret meeting on US soil with the Taliban is the definition of treason and puts the US in danger. There. I fixed your BS news report. Cut the sh*t! There was nothing innocent nor was there an ounce of good intension. Is this a GD joke?

  • True Grit

    We have an imbecile in the white house. Trump cares only about himself and his mentally-challenged offspring. Republicans have shown themselves to be a cadre of cowards. I hope republicans have to pay for this for decades.

  • Cindy Yeager

    I recommend that everyone read David J's post. I saw the reporting that he is referring to. Please read it and if you still support Donald Trump, move to Russia.

  • Raging Monk

    Media is nothing but fools, all of them to include FOX!!!!!
    We have been fighting the Taliban for like 18 years. DO YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE that the Taliban leaders would get onto one jet and fly to America???????
    If they got on one jet we would blast it out the air. If they made it to the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol would pick them up.
    Trump cancelled a meeting that the Taliban had no intention of attending and rightfully so. Trumps tweet was because the Taliban said, "GFY" we ain't coming. His, Trumps, ego made him tweet in case the story got out.

  • Sam Sabet's Video's

    I hoping he would remember 9/11 by tricking those top Tally leaders to Camp David, then off to GITMO.  Missed opportunity.  He would have guaranteed a reelection had he done that!

  • John Smith

    Peace Talks are ALWAYS A GOOD THING. You might be confused, the previous president just slaughtered Muslims for 8 years and ruined health care without even attempting peace with anyone.
    Some how he got a peace prize for being black.

  • Ford LTD

    Why do invite the Taliban to theUnited States for they are all killers just like his buddy Putin he yeah a killer Communists just will not work in this that's what Trump wants to be another Adolf Hitler. Get them Republicans be out in 2020. And then start sending them to court giving him their sentences and locking them up

  • Search for the truth

    The NAZI/REPUBLICANS keep America at a level where it isn't a question of what can we do next to make our lives and country better, but will we live or die today. So I ask you, WILL THE NAZI/REPUBLICAN PARTY LIVE OR DIE? Isn't it time to grow up and end the sneaking, treasonous, thieving filth otherwise known as the NAZI/REPUBLICAN PARTY?

  • Sean Breen

    President Obama will be remembered for the death of bin Laden. Oligarch Trump will be remembered for cowering to Putin, negotiating with the terrorists who gave him the tallest tower in New York City on September 11, 2001, and crashing the economy he inherited.

    Never forget Charlottesville…
    Never forget Helsinki…
    Any not against the trump are enemy, not only to this nation, but enemy to all peoples of this earth.
    Trumpanzies are not human. Trumpanzies have zero human rights. Putting trumpanzies down no more sin than stepping on ants.

    Trump will do or say anything to distract the public from focusing on how much of the Tax Payers money
    is actually going to Trumps bed bug infested failing Golf Courses.
    Amazing Trump was the only one who knew of the meeting that never existed.

    “They’re telling this President not to pursue some of these more unconventional ambitions”
    – i.e Getting together and talking, in order to find a Peaceful resolution.

    “They’re all taking a more formal position, a more mainstream position”
    -I.e They’re for the continuous bombing of innocent people.

  • Thomas Moeller

    While a Presidential Retreat, Camp David is first and foremost a working military installation. Do you really think Taliban leadership would actually show up? Especially near the anniversary of 9/11? With the leadership of Afghanistan? This is all a smoke screen. What is Trump really trying to hide?
