Trump Tweets He Has 'Absolute Right' to Share Info With Russia

Posted: May 16, 2017 8:35 AM

President Trump expressed his frustration over continued leaks Tuesday morning on Twitter.

First responding to the Washington Post report that claimed he revealed classified information to Russian officials last week, Trump said he has an “absolute right” to share information.

“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.

He then moved on to commenting about the leakers.

“I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community.....”

This post will be updated when and if Trump writes a follow-up tweet.
