    Would you like to discuss what I posted , what was shared, what did we get in return and how would we be harmed. Since we are only posting what has been reported Israel states by a public statement they were fine with it.

    From post 4:

    Why did he give it up? No idea. Secondary to the fact he isn't smart enough to know it shouldn't have left his lips. Could it be he doesn't pay attention to security briefings? Maybe.

    As to your questions I have no idea and I can't imagine an answer that would absolve him of , as reported, giving up Israeli intelligence.

    I am glad Trump is making you guys mad. As a matter of fact I laugh about it. I would trust the Russians more than the DNC.

    DNC? Where does her DNC come into this? Can we stay on topic?


    Again, from post 4:

    Is that the only way you'd have an issue with what's happened here, is if it broke a law?
    Again I know many want to lump me into the far right which could not be farther from the truth ( Not saying you are). My issue is what should I be angry about? The president shares hosts of information from classifies to non classified with all types of countries. I want to know what should I be angry about. What was for sure disclosed and how does it harm me as an American. Did the sharing of info help me in anyway. That is the intellectual discussion we should be having but instead we have Trump supporters in pure defense vs Anti Trump crowd with the sky is falling tone.

    Ding ding ding there it is "He isn't smart enough". Is McMaster also incapable?

    Israel has also stated they have no issue.

    Again, from post 4:
    I am just saying that I do not trust anyone from the left and used the corrupt DNC who has been proven to be corrupt as a example.

    As for post 4 do you think that this is the first time in history that this has happened? I mean this is being treated like a Watergate type scandal. Its really hilarious to see the Democrats still acting like this. This is not changing anyones mind I know, other than making the Right harder nosed to fight back against this at the voting booth. Had this very conversation with some friends this past weekend and they all agree.

    Do you believe that trust among key allies when it comes to intelligence is important ?

    If so, as reported , the POTUS violated that trust. Russia is secondary in this story. Just makes it worst but still secondary.

    All of that can be found in the article in the OP. If you either don't believe it or don't have an issue with any of it, then that's your prerogative.

    If this were an isolated incident it would still be bad but....it's not. Remember, all of what was shared hasn't been reported. The WH , as reported, asked WaPo to leave parts out.

    Ok lets get to the bottom line. What do you think needs to be done to Trump for being a bad boy? I mean all this evidence I am sure you have some suggestions?

    But to be honest, this is just more liberal media drivel. Nobody but the very very loyal liberal readers believe this crap thats being pushed. That will be proven in the voting booth.

    Again we are talking Israel and conflicting reports on their feelings on the issue . If Israel comes out with public criticism I am going to be concerned.

    You seem to have more concern about anoynmous criticism from Israel than consistent public criticism they had of the previous adminstration supporting Israel's enemy. Which again from an intellectual stand point is confusing.

    I value Israel and our alliance I'm consistent on that, many of you are not based on opinions of the previous adminstration.

    Of course they have. That's what intelligence agencies say publicly. Behind the scenes it seems logical they may be upset that POTUS shared confidential info that will get back to Iran.

    Didn't you advocate criminal charges against journalists exercising the first amendment a few pages ago? I suppose "destruction" is a matter of perspective, isn't it?

    Its been said that Israel does not like to deal with liberal American presidents who at every turn tried to undermine their very country. Just saying.
