Trump Allegations, Conan O’Brien Lawsuit, and More

The Washington Post on Monday reported that President Donald Trump divulged classified information to Russian officials during a meeting last week. The intel involved ISIS threats related to laptops on airplanes. 

In March, American and British officials announced a ban on large electronics on flights from some Middle East countries. At the time, officials said the ban was not prompted by any new or specific threats, but rather was based on awareness of continuing terrorist desires to target commercial aircraft.

Although the allegations that Trump revealed secrets are likely to make allies second-guess how they share intelligence with the U.S., Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, insisted that the sharing of information was routine and “wholly appropriate.” Read the story from The AP
