When Trump passed top secret intelligence from Israel to Russia, the world became a much more dangerous place. Trump supporters, if there are any left, will surely defend him, and say that discussing such confidential information only helps us. After all, even Trump asserts his willingness to collaborate with Russia in a push against ISIS.
“We’re going to have a lot of great success over the coming years, and we want to get as many to fight terrorism as possible,” he said. NYTimes article
At first glance, that quote might be tough to disagree with. However, once we ascertain a few facts regarding that quote, it’s irrelevancy becomes apparent. For starters, Russia is not on our side in the Middle East.
In Syria, for instance, Washington’s top goal is to beat back ISIS and retake its self-declared capital of Raqqa. Russia’s top goal, by contrast, is to ensure that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad manages to stay in power.
That at times has led to Russia bombing US-backed rebels the Pentagon was relying on to fight both Assad and ISIS. VOX article
By giving the top secret to intelligence to Russia, Trump is essentially giving battle plans to an army that bombs our soldiers. Trumpkins can defend that anyway they want, but that is still as impeachable as you get!
An Israeli official, speaking to Buzzfeed News, said that Trump’s loose lips had confirmed his country’s ‘worst fears’.
“We have an arrangement with America which is unique to the world of intelligence sharing,” said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity. “We do not have this relationship with any other country,”
“To know that this intelligence is shared with others, without our prior knowledge?” he added. “That is, for us, our worst fears confirmed.” IndependentUK article
As soon as Trump shared confidential intelligence, our greatest sources rejected us. At least now, the victim’s children of the next terrorist attack will know who to blame.
But this gets even better!
Our president’s earth shattering tongue slip has not only forced our middle eastern sources to abandon us, European nations have also decided to stop sharing intelligence with us. A European intelligence officer told the AP that his country will be unable to share information with America anymore as a result of Trump’s reckless sharing of intelligence. Politico article
Russia wanted Donald Trump to be our president because they knew he would drive America over the cliff. Russia has never been our ally, despite how much money Putin has given to our president. Of course, Russia would have preferred Trump to Hillary. One of those leaders they have in their pocket.
Putin plays his fiddle while America burns.
Under Trump, America has become a smoldering pile of ash.
