Wow, so there you go. Just a small selection of articles for you to read through, which should leave you sufficiently scratching your head!
But the question remains… did he?
It sounds to me like there may have been some information that was at least bordering of classified that passed over to the Russians. It does sound like nothing super critical was given to them. Somewhere between “he leaked classified info” and “it didn’t happen” there is truth.
Personally, I think Trump is trying to create some kind of relationship that isn’t bordering on cold war status with the Russians, and for whatever reason the left is just itching to get into a fight with Russia. Obviously, Trump has to mind his mouth. But it doesn’t seem to me that anything he could have said in that meetings was deeply damaging or would cause any real issue in the fight against terror or the relations between the US and Russia.
It isn’t the first time classified info was leaked, because we know Hillary, Obama, and Biden have all been guilty of it. But this is Trump, so it is obviously far worse. And if the people who were trying to bait me on Twitter last night are any indication, we should be hearing about this until the day we all die.
The two leaders spoke by phone for the first time since U.S. relations with Russian were strained by the U.S. attack on a Syrian airfield. They two leaders set the foundation for what could be their first face-to-face meeting in July.Statements from both the White House and the Kremlin suggested the two leaders had a productive conversation that included North Korea and fighting Islamist militants throughout the Middle East.
“The conversation was a very good one, and included the discussion of safe, or de-escalation, zones to achieve lasting peace for humanitarian and many other reasons,” a White House statement said.

In a sweeping response to election hacking and other meddlesome behavior, President Barack Obama on Thursday sanctioned Russian intelligence services and their top officials, kicked out 35 Russian officials and closed down two Russian-owned compounds in the U.S. It was the strongest action the Obama administration has taken to date to retaliate for a cyberattack.
“All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions,” Obama said. He added: “Such activities have consequences.”
In a bid to expose Moscow’s cyber aggression, the U.S. also released a detailed report about Russia’s hacking infrastructure that it said was designed to help computer specialists prevent more hacking. And Obama said more action was coming.
“These actions are not the sum total of our response to Russia’s aggressive activities,” Obama said in a statement released while he was vacationing in Hawaii. The U.S. has previously left open the possibility it could mount a retaliatory strike.
The spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said the new sanctions were a sign of Obama’s “unpredictable and, if I may say, aggressive foreign policy” and were aimed at undermining President-elect Donald Trump.
“We think that such steps by a U.S. administration that has three weeks left to work are aimed at two things: to further harm Russian-American ties, which are at a low point as it is, as well as, obviously, to deal a blow to the foreign policy plans of the incoming administration of the president-elect,” Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow.
I don’t expect that the president-elect will follow exactly our approach, but my hope is he does not simply take a realpolitik approach and suggest that, you know, if we just cut some deals with Russia, even if it hurts people or even if it violates international norms or even if it leaves smaller countries vulnerable, or creates long-term problems in regions like Syria, that we just do whatever’s convenient at the time.
For those who have not been comatose for the last several years, this is insanity. This was precisely Obama’s policy in Syria. Obama drew a red line – he said there would be consequences if Syrian dictator Bashar Assad used weapons of mass destruction. Assad did. Obama then geared up to do a “pinprick” attack on Syria, and when Vladimir Putin stepped in, Obama took a realpolitik approach and cut a deal with Russia that hurt people and violated international norms and left smaller countries vulnerable and created a long-term problem because it was convenient.
This is the most blatant case of gaslighting in modern political history.
Also, just because I’m curious. What is it with liberals and Russia? Everyone has been outraged about Trump making nice with Putin. Why? If it prevents a war with Russia, why is that such a bad thing? Do you want to go to war with Russia? We know Hillary did. Personally, if Trump can avoid a war with Russia – or anyone else, for that matter – I’d be willing to give it a chance as long as it isn’t completely insane. I think we’re all done with war for a while, and personally I don’t want to send anymore troops anywhere for a while.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. government on Friday formally accused Russia of a campaign of recent cyber attacks against Democratic Party organizations.
The condemnation came amid escalating tensions between Washington and Moscow over a range of international disagreements, including U.S. charges that Russian air strikes in support of embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have been hitting hospitals and other civilian targets in rebel-held eastern Aleppo.
