Trump Is Recklessly Endangering the Lives of America’s Spies

… Trump disclosed Israeli intelligence relating to an ISIS plot to bomb U.S.-bound airplanes using laptops. …[He] placed that source in grave danger of being uncovered by ISIS, and Israel reportedly had him or her quickly removed.

…Specific information regarding the Russian troll farm used to disrupt the 2016 election and leading to special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of more than a dozen Russian intelligence officers, for example, must have come from U.S. spies in Russia—and the Kremlin knew it.

…After all, Trump had no hesitation tweeting out classified imagery of Iran’s rocket program. Would he go so far as to share the identity of a U.S. spy?
