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?
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
