"To compromise a source is something that you just don't do, and that's why we keep the information that we get from intelligence sources so close as to prevent that from happening".

"We'd like to understand what was said", chairman Richard BurrRichard BurrSenate Intel leaders request briefing with officials in Trump-Russia meeting Senate panel wants details on Trump's Russia meeting Juan Williams: Comey firing burns GOP MORE (R-N.C.) said Tuesday, calling the briefing "crucial" but noting that the president possesses the broad legal authority to declassify information at his discretion. "Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russian Federation to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism", Trump tweeted Tuesday.

In a series of morning tweets, Trump declared he has "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

Donald Trump's national security advisor on Tuesday denied the U.S. president had caused a "lapse in national security" following reports he disclosed highly-classified information about Daesh to the Russian officials. Israel had not given the US permission to share the information with Russian Federation. "The story that came out tonight as reported is false", McMaster said - not elaborating on which elements were "false".

One senior European official, told the Associated Press, they may decide to stop intelligence sharing with the United States, if it transpired Mr Trump had passed on classified information.

McMaster would neither confirm nor deny that Trump had divulged top secret information. "Mr. President", Schiff tweeted, "this isn't about your 'rights, ' but your responsibilities. You could jeopardize our sources, relationships and security".

"If the USA administration finds it necessary, we are ready to provide the record of the conversation between Trump and Lavrov to the Senate and Congress", Putin said.

"That conversation was wholly appropriate to the conversation, and I think wholly appropriate what the expectations are of our intelligence partners", McMaster said, adding he was "not sure what conversations have been held" with foreign partners since the story broke. "No one has ever attempted to set aside a law neutral on its face and neutral in its operation on the basis of largely campaign- trail comments by a private citizen running for office", Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey said in defence.

Philippe, the mayor of the Normandy port of Le Havre, is a trained lawyer and an author of political thrillers. Merkel said they had "a common understanding that we can't just focus on Britain leaving the European Union ".

Lawmakers, meanwhile, said it's disturbing that Trump discussed any intelligence with officials from Russian Federation, a country under investigation by US authorities over allegations it interfered with last year's presidential election by hacking Democratic political organizations.

Russian Federation has denied such meddling, and Trump bristles at any suggestion he owed his November 8 victory to Moscow.

"It's not helpful that this was the Russians", said Sen.

Trump tweeted a similar defense on Tuesday morning.

At least some of the information that Trump shared with Russian Federation about the laptop threat had been collected by Israel.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster on Tuesday afternoon defended Trump's comments during last week's meeting, which he described as "wholly appropriate". "By reporting the city's name, Trump administration officials insisted, that would tip off American adversaries about sources and methods used to gather the intelligence", Tapper said.

Schumer said producing the transcripts "is the only way for this administration to categorically prove the reports untrue".

"What we don't do is discuss what is what isn't classified", he said. His criticism has been followed by a steady stream of leaks to the media that have been damaging to Trump and exposed an FBI investigation into his associates' possible ties to Russian Federation.
