WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Monday, the Washington Post reported that according to unnamed sources, Trump allegedly shared with Russian officials classified information about how terrorist organizations plan to use laptops as bombs on airplanes. The partner who gave the United States the information did not give Trump permission to share it with Russian officials, the report further alleged.
"The president's actions have made a special counsel necessary," Wyden posted in a Twitter message. "Absolutely no FBI Dir[ector] should be considered until special counsel is appointed."
In a Twitter message posed on Tuesday, Trump said he had every right to share with Russian officials facts about the fight against terrorism and airline safety.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov called the report "nonsense."
