Eshoo Statement on Reports President Trump Shared Classified Information with Russian Officials

May 16th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement on news reports that President Trump shared classified information with Russian officials last week:

“The reports that the President shared highly classified information with Russian diplomats are deeply troubling for several reasons. As a veteran of the House Intelligence Committee, I know full well the jeopardy this places our intelligence officers in; the damage this inflicts on an allied country who entrusted the U.S. with the intelligence; and how handing over the most sensitive information to the least trustworthy country – Russia – threatens our national security and our military who serve to protect us.

“The President makes the case almost daily as to why an independent, bipartisan commission is essential to investigate what ties exist between the President and Russia.”
