On May 15, 2017, General H.R. McMaster spoke out to the media and the public after the New York Times reported that President Trump shared highly classified information with the Russians.
H.R. McMaster said (watch here):
A brief statement for the record. There is nothing that the president takes more seriously than the security of the American people. The story that came out tonight as reported is false. The president of the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries, including threats to civil aviation. At no time, at no time, where intelligent sources or methods discussed. The president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known. Two other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of the state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Going on the record should outweigh the anonymous sources. I was in the room. It didn’t happen. Thanks, everybody.
Two hours ago Reuters releases an article quoting H.R. McMaster who NOW criticized the leaks:
“In a concern about divulging intelligence they leaked actually not just the information from the meeting, but also indicated the sources and methods to a to a newspaper. I mean it doesn’t make sense,” (Reporting by Julia Harte Editing by Jeremy Gaunt)
You can’t have it both ways. You can’t deny that nothing was shared with the Russians that wasn’t already publicly known, yet conversely criticize that the inside leakers to the New York Times got it right–very right–down to the sources and methods, if it wasn’t shared with the Russians. If it wasn’t shared or was already public, then there would be no leaks and leakers. Right? It’s one or the other, but not both.
These two statements by McMaster validate that Trump did share highly classified information with the Russians–removing all doubts, and it shows me McMaster is not trustworthy because he’s willing to say two completely inconsistent statements. Both cannot be true.
