To understand the leftwing Media’s suicidal obsession with destroying Donald Trump, an observation on the Washington Post’s “blockbuster” report about the serious security infraction by Donald Trump with the Russians is still more instructive than the New York Times-Comey memo story, which still needs to develop more legs in order to mean anything other than a rumor.
Maybe it was just a personal pique of Jeff Bezos, WAPO owner, who doesn’t like Donald Trump for all the monopolistic reasons many tech capitalists wouldn’t like any American president who could pull the Sherman Act on them, or,
Maybe the American media were angry when President Trump disinvited them to his meet-and-greet with Russian foreign minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak, including Russian media.
But in the more serious discussion between Trump and the Russians that followed that photo-op, about security matters of mutual interest, particulary in Syria and ISIS, a source purportedly privy to what took place in that meeting reported, exclusively to the Washington Post, that Donald Trump had provided the Russians with highly classified information, which we’re advised, they should never have been told, or allowed to know. While legal for the president to do this, Trump was nevertheless damned because the shared information had been gained from foreign assets…turns out it was Israel, who have already said they didn’t mind…and also because Barack Obama, with full knowledge of congressional oversight committees and intelligence communities (people like James Clapper) only a year earlier had done exactly the same thing with the Russians, and it backfired. The Russians double-crossed him.
Without going into why the Russians would be more comfortable double-crossing Obama than Trump, the main takeaway is that the American media yawned when Obama did it.
If the GOP Congress are going to fire warning shots at Trump, it should be from this context. And if the People are going to fire warning shots at the cuckholded GOP Congress, it should also be from this context.

About the Source
This reported WAPO leak is quite a mouthful for a source who, it was reported, was never in the room.
Moreover, unlike earlier leaks about Trump’s behind-the-curtain antics; early-morning and nocturnal habits while tweeting, i.e, what he wears; bathrobe, pj’s, does he pace, mutter under his breath? this source risked 10-25 years for this snitch.
Assuming he’s American.
Interestingly, in the first day of reporting (late afternoon Monday), almost no one asked about th\e Source, even though a felon was afoot, probably hiding in plain sight. This is telling, for the story line across the media spectrum on Day One allowed the narrative to be indelibly engraved that the villainy in this report was the casual, dangerous, loose lips of Donald Trump. It was not until Tuesday, that the White House and McMaster could get a word in edgewise and draw the world’s attention to the fact that it was the American media, not Trump, not the Russians, that told the world, and our mutual enemies, just what information had been passed in that short meeting with the Russian.
So who is this source?
First, let’s rule out the kitchen help or the guy who carries out the trash in Trump’s office. National Security Advisor H R McMaster (who no one in the media has accused of being blackmailable by the Russians…yet) said only four Americans were in that meeting, along with the Russian side, all of whom spoke English[…]
