The Story Not Covered
A recent story claims President Trump disclosed classified information during a White House meeting with top Russian officials. Presidents have the power to declassify any document and classified information is often shared with other countries. I have absolutely no idea if he did anything wrong. What interests me is the story that is not being covered.
Either someone who attended the meeting or had access to notes from the meeting decided to break the law by disclosing information to the Washington Post. This has happened before when someone committed a crime and denied General Flynn his constitutional rights.
It is a dangerous world out there. Effective gathering, analyzing and securing of intelligence is vital to our national security. It is scary to think that there are those entrusted with our secrets that prioritize embarrassing President Trump over national security. It makes me wonder what else they might do. Perhaps they will deliberately give Trump misinformation or something even more sinister.
Eventually we will find out whether or not Trump did the right thing. In the meantime it is vital that we ferret out these leakers and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
