Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on news reports that President Trump revealed code-word classified intelligence on ISIS to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak:

“If news reports are true, President Trump has compromised a key source of intelligence collection against ISIS and jeopardized the security of the American people.

“Even if President Trump unwittingly blew a highly classified code-word source to the Russians, that would be dangerous enough.  If the President outed a highly classified code-word source intentionally, that would be even more dangerous.

“Congress must be given a full briefing on the extent of the damage President Trump has done in compromising highly classified code-word intelligence to the Russians.”
