Charles Krauthammer blasted the Democratic National Committee and Sen. Mark Warner Monday for statements denouncing Trump’s alleged sharing of “highly classified” information with Russia, calling them “irresponsible.”
The Washington Post reported Monday that President Trump incidentally leaked “highly classified” information to senior Russian officials.
The DNC and Sen. Warner slammed Trump for the alleged leaks, with Warner calling it a “slap in the face” to the intelligence community.
Fox contributor Charles Krauthammer, however, had no patience for what he viewed as hypocrisy from the Democrats.
“This is just pure opportunism and a reflex action,” Krauthammer said on Fox News Monday evening, “especially considering their candidate for the presidency leaked classified information, some of the highest level, for a year and a half, and all the Democrats all pretended it wasn’t a problem or should be ignored.”
Krauthammer also called the Democrats’ statements “completely irresponsible,” because “they have no idea what was revealed, they have no idea the gravity of it.”
National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster denied the Washington Post reports Monday, saying that they are “false” and that “at no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed” during Trump’s meeting with Russian officials.
