WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Kathleen Rice released the following statement today after reports that President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassador during a meeting last week in the Oval Office.

Statement from Representative Kathleen Rice:

“According to widespread reports, President Trump recklessly blurted out highly classified information while meeting with Russian officials at Putin’s request. At a time when some of our allies were already questioning whether the Trump administration could be trusted with sensitive intelligence, the President’s thoughtless decision could endanger a valuable intelligence source, weaken our security partnerships around the world, and directly undermine our efforts to defeat ISIS and other terrorist groups. The biggest question now is what more it will take for Republicans in Congress to recognize that this is a crisis, put country before party and step up to help us hold this President accountable.”
