On Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said that Americans must avoid getting their information from U.S. newspapers if they wish to know the truth as to what exactly happened during a meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian officials.
The Daily Caller reports:
Maria Zakharova described reports of Trump sharing classified information with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as “yet another fake,” the Associated Press reported.
Zakharova also encouraged Americans to do anything with newspapers but read them.
“Guys, have you been reading American newspapers again?” she wrote on her Facebook page. “You shouldn’t read them. You can put them to various uses, but you shouldn’t read them. Lately it’s become not only harmful, but dangerous too.”
Zakharova’s remarks come in response to a controversial report from the Washington Post that Trump passed highly sensitive, “code word” national security information to Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak during a meeting in the Oval Office. Trump allegedly told the Russian officials about a planned ISIS plot against commercial aviation, and the location where US allies came upon this information, the Post reported.
The White House denied the allegations on Monday evening, with National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster issuing a carefully worded statement saying “the story that came out tonight as reported is false.”
“At no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed. The president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known,” McMaster added.
