Trump may be regretting this tweet about 'Crooked Hillary' right about now

But The Daily Show certainly hasn't forgotten those months of vitriol we collectively had to endure, so they conveniently compiled a "Best Of" thread, highlighting all the tweets from GOP members calling Hillary Clinton "unfit" for the presidency.

Charles Krauthammer reacted to a Washington Post report that President Trump revealed classified information during a meeting with Russian envoys in the Oval Office.

Now, many of those formerly apoplectic Republicans are shrugging off Trump's behaviour - his campaign's suspicious ties to the Russian government, his dismissal of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and his sharing of classified information with two high-level Russian officials - with only a modest sense of annoyance.

According to the report, Trump allegedly shared intel that was supplied by a USA partner through a "highly sensitive" sharing arrangement about the fight to counter the Islamic State group.

Suddenly, Republican senators don't have a lot to say about mishandling of classified information.

If Hillary Clinton leaked classified info to a Russian spook/diplomat, Republicans would rightly be drafting Articles of Impeachment N-O-W. In the month of July of previous year, he tweeted, 'Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. This morning, the president said he had full authority to leak the intel.

Putin Prepared to Provide Written Transcripts on Lavrov-Trump Talks
Republicans of the House Judiciary Committee predominately voted against the articles of impeachment for the president. According to John McCain, Trump's scandals are "reaching Watergate size and scale".

The President of the United States does have legal authority to leak classified information, however it's odd as to why Trump and his staff would contradict themselves as to what was leaked.

Trump's meeting with the Russians came just one day after he fired Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Trump has also attacked leakers of classified information in the past. "He is a traitor who fled-he knew the crime!"

And then imagine that she had used the meeting to share classified intelligence with the envoys.

Revealing it "jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State", according to the Post - specifically by giving the Russians enough information about the nature of the source to easily identify who or what it is.
