Cortez Masto Statement on Reports of President Trump Sharing Highly Classified Information with Russian Officials

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement on reports that President Trump shared classified information with Russian officials during a meeting last week:

“If true, this report identifies extremely alarming actions by the President. Sharing highly classified information with Russia without the consent of the ally who shared it threatens the safety and security of Americans at home and abroad, and compromises the safety and trust of our allies. The President’s cavalier regard to intelligence – in front of key members from Putin’s regime, no less – undermines our national security.”
