Donald Trump just couldn’t stop himself from blabbing about classified information to the Russians. That information reportedly came from Israel. Now, it is coming out that U.S. intelligence officials warned Israel that Trump couldn’t be trusted with sensitive intel months ago. The fear was that since Trump is Putin’s puppet, any intel he gets could be passed on to Moscow and their ally, Iran. (Who just happens to be Israel’s arch-enemy.)
According to Yedioth , Israeli intelligence officials feared that its famous Mossad secret service would have its most sensitive methods and operations breached, potentially falling into the hands of the Iranian regime.
Fears reportedly surfaced after U.S. intelligence officials told their Israeli counterparts that it had credible information that Russian elements hacked the Democratic National Party servers to damage Hillary Clinton before Trump’s victory.
U.S. officials implied that Israel “be careful” of passing top-secret information to Washington from January 20 onwards until alleged ties between Trump and Russia were disproved. The implication was that Israeli information, which had been discreetly shared with trust for years, could reach Tehran and harm Israeli national security.
National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster insisted on Tuesday that it is no big deal that Trump ran his mouth to Russia about classified info that he hadn’t even been briefed on. But Trump’s inability to shut his trap could have serious repercussions.
“I think very basically I just think it’s going to impact trust issues that have already been negatively affected by Trump,” said Miriam Goldman, an analyst with LeBec International. “I think there’s going to be a lot of internal questioning about whether or not sharing information with the U.S. can continue.”
Senators are also voicing their concerns about Trump’s total lack of impulse control, especially when it comes to sharing top-secret intel with foreign powers.
“The White House has got to do something soon to bring itself under control and in order. It’s got to happen,” said Sen. Bob Corker. “To compromise a source is something that you just don’t do, and that’s why we keep the information that we get from intelligence sources so close as to prevent that from happening.”
