The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee suggested Thursday President Trump disclosed classified information during a Fox News interview the night before.
“In his effort to once again blame Obama, the President appeared to have discussed something that, if true and accurate, would otherwise be considered classified information,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a news release.
Trump spoke to Fox New’s Tucker Carlson Wednesday night, when he said the CIA was hacked during the Obama administration.“I just want people to know, the CIA was hacked, and a lot of things taken — that was during the Obama years. That was not during us," Trump said. "That was during the Obama situation. Mike Pompeo is there now doing a fantastic job."
Schiff on Thursday dismissed the possibility that Trump made “a purposeful decision” to disclose the CIA hack following a discussion with the intelligence community, suggesting instead that the president handled the information recklessly.
If this was a reference to the recent Wikileaks show of CIA hacking tools, then I don't quite see where the problem is. Apart that the CIA was not directly "hacked" but CIA workers lifted the stuff from their employer. But there may have be some real break into the CIA that we are not aware of and Schiff means that. Now that would be him who brings it to light that there are two different incidents!
PS. just waiting for the CIA to get hacked under Mike Pompeo, the guy hasn't been in office long enough to "do a fantastic job". Pompeo a IT security guy???
