CNN Was Leaked the Name of City Trump Allegedly Disclosed to Russia — in March

Published

on

As the mainstream media and various unnamed “intelligence officials” continue to claim that information President Donald Trump shared with Russia could “put American lives in danger,” they have been ignoring the fact that CNN had the same details all the way back in March.

This week, unnamed sources told the Washington Post that Trump had shared the name of an ISIS controlled city where a laptop threat had originated with Sergey V. Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States.

This sparked a massive outcry among Democrats, anti-Trump media, and the anti-Trump Republicans, including demands that the president be impeached.

However, according to Jake Tapper, back in March CNN’s Evan Perez had learned from “numerous officials” the name of the city and details of a computer bomb plot ISIS was planning to use on international flights. He goes on to say that the White House had warned Perez that reporting the information, including the city where the information was obtained, could put American lives in danger.

“We showed restraint with publication — the same restraint the president did not show with Russian officials,” Jake Tapper said in his report on CNN.

The White House reportedly told CNN that openly publishing the information could put sources and methods in danger.

Tapper goes on to fearmonger about the information being given to Russian officials, a nation also fighting ISIS, yet shows no concern about unnamed officials sharing the information with CNN. Apparently sharing information with network news is not as bad as sharing information with a nation that is actually allied in the fight against Islamic terrorism.

CNN must think pretty highly of itself, if they believe that their network being leaked the information is a non-issue compared to our president allegedly mentioning it to the foreign officials. 

Trump has confirmed that he shared information about terrorism and airline flight safety with Russia, in hopes that they will step up their fight.

“As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety, Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster stated on Tuesday that the city is “nothing you would not know from open source reporting in terms of a source for concern.”

Still, we have to ask, why was information that is reportedly so dangerous that it could allegedly put American troops “in danger” being leaked to CNN? Who leaked it to them?

It’s about time.

Published

President Donald Trump is preparing a monumental peace deal with the Afghan Taliban to withdraw thousands of U.S service members from Afghanistan and start winding down America’s lengthiest war.

The President is dispatching Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to attend the signing of the peace deal in Qatar. The White House published a statement on the upcoming peace deal Friday, emphasizing the need to finally end the seemingly endless Afghan War.

The statement emphasizes President Trump’s campaign promise during 2016 to pursue a final end to the ceaseless, never-ending conflict.

Senior military and state department officials had met with representatives of the Taliban on Thursday night. The Taliban has been negotiating with the United States and the Afghan government on and off for months now.

Leaked documents have revealed a legacy of corruption and waste surrounding the U.S presence in Afghanistan.

The US-Taliban peace deal with reduce the amount of American service members present within the country from around 13,000 to 8,600. The burden of securing Taliban-dominated Afghan provinces will now be further shifted upon the Afghan government, a largely corrupt entity that has largely failed to provide a lasting and meaningful governmental alternative to the Islamist organization.

The Taliban has agreed never again to host extremist organizations such as al-Qaeda or ISIS in Afghanistan that plot attacks on the United States from the nation. The signing of the deal in Qatar has been preceded by a seven-day limited ceasefire, which the militant group had to obey in order for American authorities to sign the deal.

Some hawkish Senators and congressmen have openly called for limitless and infinite American military presence in the troubled Central Asian country.
