Krauthammer on DNC Slamming Trump Intel Reveal: Hillary Did Much Worse

But The Daily Show certainly hasn't forgotten those months of vitriol we collectively had to endure, so they conveniently compiled a "Best Of" thread, highlighting all the tweets from GOP members calling Hillary Clinton "unfit" for the presidency.

Smith launched his program by reporting that Trump had revealed classified information to the Russian ambassador and Russian foreign minister during a closed-door meeting at the White House last week.

The intelligence information was reportedly not United States intel, but instead from an anonymous global partner in the war against ISIS.

A USA official with knowledge of the meeting told the Post that the president "revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies".

The Trump administration denied the Post's report late Monday.

"The nearly insane irony of this is that it's what the Republicans tied around Hillary Clinton's neck for a couple of years about her email, saying that by using a private server, she would expose highly classified information to the world", MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on Monday. After all, Clinton's critics spent years trying to make a capital case out of the Benghazi tragedy, then pounded her careless handling of sensitive information through her use of a private server for State Department emails.

On Tuesday, Trump defended the sharing of information during the meeting, saying he had "the absolute right to do" so.

WATCH: H.R. McMaster says he stands by his comments that a Washington Post story about president Trump leaking classified information was false. "Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russian Federation to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism".

The meeting took place just one day after the firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into the alleged ties between Russian Federation and Mr Trump's campaign team.

The report comes amid an FBI investigation into Trump-Russia ties.

.

"If Hillary Clinton leaked classified info to a Russian spook/diplomat, Republicans would rightly be drafting Articles of Impeachment N-O-W", Navarro wrote.

"Snowden has given serious information to China and Russia-anyone who thinks otherwise is a dope!" Tillerson, who was at the meeting, revealed that a "broad range of subjects" were brought up and "the nature of specific threats were discussed, but they did not discuss sources, methods or military operations".
