Trump met Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak on May 10.
Trump has already denied the claim and said that he had "an absolute right" to share with Russians facts on terrorism and air flight safety.
"As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. [White House] meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS [Daesh] & terrorism," the president stated on Twitter.
In an interview with Radio Sputnik, Nikita Danyuk, deputy head of the Institute for Strategic Studies and Prognosis at RUDN University, pointed out that the political struggle against Trump continues within the US establishment.
"There have been persistent attempts to discredit Donald Trump since the beginning of his term. Political struggle against him is still underway. At the same time, his relations with media remain tense. I think this stovepiping is also related to the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey. The recent allegations against Trump are retaliation from the security and intelligence community," Danyuk said.
According to the expert, the situation evolving around Trump and his team is not optimistic.
Commenting on intelligence data sharing, Danyuk underscored that it is a routine and standard procedure.
"Such information is shared by intelligence services and defense ministries. Of course, as US Commander in Chief Trump has every right to give intelligence information to those fighting against global terrorism. But the manner in which the situation is covered by media proves that Trump still doesn’t have a solid team," the expert concluded.
