Corker slams Trump for reportedly divulging classified info to Russia

The Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee slammed Donald Trump on Monday over a report the president divulged highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador.

“To compromise a source is something that you just don’t do,” Sen. Bob Corker told reporters. “That’s why we keep the information that we get from intelligence sources so close, is to prevent that from happening.”

Corker was referring to a report in The Washington Post on Monday that Trump divulged highly classified information involving the Islamic State that officials had obtained from an intelligence-sharing arrangement with a U.S. partner.
