Analysis: Trump intel sharing likely to leave allies anxious

A current USA official tells The Associated Press that the intelligence shared addressed a threat from Islamic State militants that a U.S partner shared with the United States.

Mark Warner, D-Virginia, say they have not yet heard from the White House on Trump's meeting with the Russian officials. The Kremlin dismissed the reports as "complete nonsense".

"Patriotic Americans and our allies put their lives on the line every day to gather the intelligence that protects this country and keeps us safe", Booker said.

There was no official confirmation or denial of the ABC report for hours after it was first posted online on Tuesday. Such sharing "could be a risk for our sources", the official said.

In a series of morning tweets, Trump declared he has "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

For months, US allies have anxiously wondered if President Donald Trump could be trusted with some of the world's most sensitive national security secrets.

The bombshell Comey news came as the beleaguered administration was still struggling mightily to explain Monday's revelation that the president had disclosed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and the country's ambassador to the United States. The information had been obtained by a USA partner and shared with Washington, according to the official. The official demanded anonymity so as to discuss the private meetings. The Washington Post first reported the disclosure.

The CIA is declining to comment.

But some of the European partners Trump will meet later in his trip have been more skeptical about his policies, including a controversial travel and immigration ban that's been blocked by US courts. The White House is disputing a report that President Donald Trump asked C. But Ball said intelligence co-operation was too important to be constrained."Five Eyes is far too significant for anyone to wash their hands of it and Five Eyes has weathered a few storms over the years", Ball said. In a single week, Trump fired the FBI director, told different stories about why, became the target of a congressional investigation that's expanding into money-laundering, shared intelligence with Russian Federation, offered shifting explanations for the latter, and then wound up being accused of wading into a police investigation.

Now, just a few days before Trump's debut on the global stage, he's giving allies new reasons to worry.

According to an afternoon report in the Washington Post on May 15, President Trump disclosed highly classified intelligence information to Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and its US ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, in a May 10 meeting.

"At no time, at no time, were intelligence sources or methods discussed and the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known", McMaster said.

A Japanese government official said it was simply not possible to stop cooperating with Washington on intelligence matters.

American intelligence agencies are uniform in their conclusion that Russians hacked the US election. But intelligence cooperation can be ended if the permission of the originating nation is not obtained before the information is divulged to a third nation. In the letter to Comey, Trump said the firing was necessary to restore "public trust and confidence" in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The NSA was also at the heart of the Edward Snowden drama, which revealed the U.S.to be spying on world leaders, including close allies.

"Never before have I witnessed a senior government official so carelessly threaten an intelligence-sharing relationship", a former senior intelligence official told CNN. But Obama administration officials soon learned that Trump's aides were taking classified information out of the secure room at transition headquarters without approval.
