The U.S. extracted a high-level covert source close to the Kremlin from Russia in 2017, in part over concerns that President Trump’s handling of classified information might put the asset at risk, per a new report.

But the Trump administration promptly pushed back against the claim that the Russian source was pulled out of the country over fears that Trump might be putting him at risk.

The article goes on to state the following:

CNN cited sources Monday alleging that the decision to exfiltrate the Russian informant, amid worries that the source might be exposed, happened after Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office. During that May 2017 meeting, Trump disclosed some classified information about an anti-ISIS operation in Syria to the Russians. The intelligence had been provided to the U.S. by Israel.

Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary, said “CNN’s reporting is not only incorrect, it has the potential to put lives in danger.”

President Trump lashed out against CNN in a fiery Twitter post Monday morning, soon after the report was released. He wrote:

Great news that an activist investor is now involved with AT&T. As the owner of VERY LOW RATINGS @CNN, perhaps they will now put a stop to all of the Fake News emanating from its non-credible “anchors.” Also, I hear that, because of its bad ratings, it is losing a fortune…..

…But most importantly, @CNN is bad for the USA. Their International Division spews bad information & Fake News all over the globe. This is why foreign leaders are always asking me, “Why does the Media hate the U.S. sooo much?” It is a fraudulent shame, & all comes from the top!
