McMaster: Trump Didn’t Even Know Where Info Came From

McMaster Trump Didn’t Even Know Where Info Came FromPresident Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, said on Tuesday that the commander-in-chief wasn’t aware of where his information came from when he divulged it to Russian officials last week in the Oval Office. Following a media firestorm over the president sharing classified information with foreign officials, McMaster defended Trump’s conversation with the Russians as “wholly appropriate”—echoing the president’s own claim that he was well within his rights to share the particular information to his guests. He added, “I should just make maybe the statement here that the president wasn’t even aware where this information came from. He wasn’t briefed on the source or method of the information either.”
