In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his
inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have
people brief me on great intel every day,” the president said,
according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.
Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United
States learned only through the espionage capabilities of a key
partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence-gathering
method, but he described how the Islamic State was pursuing
elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could
cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials
said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory
where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.
The Washington Post is withholding most plot details, including
the name of the city, at the urging of officials who warned that
revealing them would jeopardize important intelligence
Is Trump a Russian collaborator? A bumbling idiot? Both? No matter what the answer is, he’s unfit to be president. This would be comical if the stakes weren’t so high. If a cabinet secretary had blabbed about this they’d be fired on the spot.
