Painful Slips from Administration Daily

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.

    I thought he was going ro publicly announce his resignation because , you know , Country first . I actually had some faith in him .Then he folded like a cheap suit in less than 24 hours . Just another compliant stooge . No honor or integriy to be found in this administration . Sad !

  • Those Russian spies whom Trump invited for a private meeting in the Oval Office (with Russian press present but free American press banned) really know how to play Trump. He loves to brag about himself and how smart he is and how he “knows more than the generals” and everyone else. When they get him in a room without Preibus or Pence to tug on his leash when he starts to spew classified info, they know they can get him to tell them everything. He’d blurt out our nuclear codes just to brag that he knows what they are.

    You’re 100% correct Eyes, in the video interview http://abcnews.go.com/ThisWeek/video/white-house-national-security-advisor-lt-gen-mcmaster-47541805 McMaster is saying leaks, leaks and more leaks. I don’t know how many times he says the word but he acknowledges the meaning behind the word clearly enough. A clear contradiction with his earlier statement.
