According to a few US officials, Trump discussed about Islamic State with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. US lawmakers have been asking the White House and the President for a complete explanation regarding the matter.
An US ally, probably Israel as suspected by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and CNN, and it’s source of information had been revealed by Trump in a meeting with the Russian officials. This threatens the strength of US confidentiality as it shared the information without consulting the respective country, or the US Congress.
Trump said on Twitter on Tuesday he had an “absolute right” to share facts with Russia, adding he wanted Moscow to be more active in fighting Islamic State militants.
Trump’s alleged ties with Russia, the Russian interference in the US election, firing of Flynn and now the firing of Comey, have all raised flags with how deeply the Russian and Trump involvement goes.
This is a serious issue. No state can reveal such information without the consultancy of it’s own congress or the source. If this is proven to be true, it will be a major concern for US allies, and a major concern for US as it might not receive reliable data or any data from it’s allies in the future.
