US extracts spy from Russia fearing Trump might expose him

  • Concerns first grew when Trump shared classified Intel with two Russians in the Oval Office. When he confiscated his translator's notes after a private meeting with daddy Putin, concern became alarm
    Anybody still need convincing that he's a national security risk?

    The US extracted “one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government” in 2017, it was reported on Monday, in part because of concerns that mishandling of classified intelligence by Donald Trump and his administration could jeopardise the source’s safety.
    CNN cited “multiple Trump administration officials with direct knowledge” of the matter and said “a person directly involved in the discussions” said the move was made because Trump and his officials could not be fully trusted.

    Describing a “culmination of months of mounting fear within the intelligence community”, CNN said the decision to carry out the extraction was made shortly after a now infamous Oval Office meeting in May 2017 in which Trump, who had recently fired the FBI director, James Comey, discussed highly sensitive intelligence concerning Isis in Syria with the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and the then ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak.
    The report also said US officials had been alarmed by Trump’s private meeting with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, in Hamburg in July that year.

    CNN cited “a source with knowledge of the intelligence community’s response” to the Trump-Putin meeting as saying: “Officials again expressed concern that the president may have improperly discussed classified intelligence with Russia.”

  • The CIA blasted CNN for this as fake news

  • "Ladies and gentlemen, ATB has let the building."

  • The New York Times and Washington Post have already said the CNN story is full of errors.

    So you are responsible, once again, for spreading fake news, you stupid retard.

    I wonder who ordered them to do that.

  • Eastsideer said... I wonder who ordered them to do that.

    So you believe it?

  • Just a thought but maybe the CNN report itself imperiled that agent or some other agent. From that story, the Russians could put two and two together and figure out who was the spy.

    Whether the CNN report had some truth to it or not, the CIA denial of the report could have been done to protect their own people.
