Ana Navarro Calls Out GOP: You'd Impeach Hillary Clinton Over This

Ana Navarro Calls Out GOP: You'd Impeach Hillary Clinton Over This

Trump tweeted in March.

Trump's attacks are remarkable to go back and read after the Washington Post published its bombshell report on Monday claiming the president revealed highly classified information to Russian officials, some of which may have "jeopardized a critical source of intelligence" on the Islamic State.

A USA official with knowledge of the meeting told the Post that the president "revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies".

There has been a legal debate on whether Mr Trump was allowed to declassify the information he leaked in order to share it with Russian officials, but Ms Navarro mocked the "enablers" for using that as an excuse for Mr Trump being "clueless" or "incompetent".

Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team "were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information".

The Congressman said that his call for impeachment is a position of conscience for him and asked the American people to speak up. Another New York Times report revealed that the U.S. ally from whom the information Mr Trump shared originated was Israel.

"Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues meant to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information", Comey said.

The President has broad powers to declassify information, so it is unlikely Trump broke the law, according to the Post, but he seems to have contradicted himself.

The meeting came one day after Trump fired Comey, who was also helping lead an FBI investigation into Russia's attempts to meddle in the 2016 election that includes probes into the Trump campaign's contact with Moscow.

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), a frequent Trump critic, expressed skepticism Trump committed a drastic blunder, James Rosen reported. In 2013, he lashed out at Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency worker who leaked USA government surveillance documents. Tillerson, who was at the meeting, revealed that a "broad range of subjects" were brought up and "the nature of specific threats were discussed, but they did not discuss sources, methods or military operations".
