Desperate Washington Post accuses President Trump of wrong doing alleging he revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador

If you thought the Washington Post  couldn't hate more the fact that President Trump defeated their precious candidate Hillary Clinton, be amazed, be very amazed. 
Today, WaPoo has sunk to a new low in Yellow Journalism.   William Randolph Hearst would be very proud!    

Washington Post reports President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State. 

The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said. 

The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.

 “This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

It's totally irresponsible for the Washington Post to accuse President Trump of wrong doing with flimsy anonymous sources.  The last time I checked Russia is engaged in fighting ISIS as much as the United States.  So it’s somehow wrong for President Trump to share information on that basis simply because of WaPo's conspiracy theory that Russia hacked the presidential elections?  I'm still waiting for WaPo to explain how Putin kept Hillary from campaigning in the Rust belt states that she eventually lost to Trump.
