And yet somehow, here you are, responding anyway.

The S of S is an unregenerate Confederacy apologist who was specifically, and Twice, told by Trump
to leave the room for that inappropriate private chat with the man conducting investigations against his possible financial corruption and collusion with a foreign power, possibly via fired national security advisor Michael Flynn, a paid foreign agent.
The current S of S is active military and as such subject to court martial if he does not do or say anything the Commander in Chief tells him to do or say. No one in this White House has any credibility whatsoever. Why would anyone believe a thing they say about anything at all?
> "Instead, you and several other news organizations,"
Surprise! I am not a news organization.
What we know is that immediately after the foot-in-mouth fuckup, intelligence agencies were alerted, our allies in Israel were informed of the breach of protocol (exactly what they had been warned against, in fact), and the world is now less safe.
Since Trump is only the latest member of his gang to try to cover up a meeting with the Russian spy he blabbed to, it might be the Russians who leaked this info. It might be almost anyone because no White House in history has been more of an oozing and pustulent source of leaks.
Did you miss the part about how CNN and others who Know what Trump said did NOT reveal the parts that intelligence officials went into overdrive to cover up lest they be spread even more widely? What has been published in the US so far is MUCH less than what our enemies now know. Careful about throwing around terms like "high treason," buster.
Also, notice the way "Frederick" retells the story. The story is that we have more and deeper intelligence ties with Israel than with any other country. And they have humans inside ISIS risking their lives. These people found out something that Israel shared with the intel agencies and Trumb shot off his mouth and his braggadoccio may have gotten people killed, may have interfered with the US getting vital intelligence. The info came to us with the specific standard operating procedure that it would not be passed to any other country without permission.
No permission was asked or given. The immediate Trumpery denials were carefully worded to deny that he did stuff that news stories did not pretend ever happened.
Not sure what anonymous sources you are thinking about, but stories from multiple news organizations citing multiple separate sources, have reported what the president now claims he had every right to blurt. A little late to be peddling "he did not do anything." That ship has already sailed. Now the story is, "Yeah, I did it. So what?"
Totally apart from attempting to piss off citizens who do not agree with your version of this breaking story, do you have any concern whatever that the overheard screaming from Bannon, Spicer, and others, might indicate a problem? The moment even a brain-addled tantrum thrower says something if that malevolent child is president, those former secrets, if they were secrets, are automagically unclassified. And he can fire people, too. So what? He can also tweet the nuclear codes, but that does not mean it is right, however lawful.
Sure, government officials chat with each other all the time to clarify, negotiate, threaten, and so on. But when superduper double secret Codeword intel is involved, there are procedures, and in this case they involve a mandatory request for permission first. And ANYTHING shared with enemies of the US, specifically with Russia, has a host of long-standing protocols, procedures, check and doublecheck lists of things to be sure off before word one. NONE of this stuff happened. And you think that is a Good Thing? I suppose you also think Trump's upcoming lecture on Islam is just what will make the Saudis out BFFs, right?
These days, brain dead nihilists chant "Russia is our friend! Russia is our friend!" to show how patriotic they are. Take a look at your fellow patriots and stfu:https://twitter.com/craftypanda/status/863564616026263555
