McMaster: Trump said nothing ‘inappropriate’ during meeting with Russians
McMaster: Trump said nothing ‘inappropriate’ during meeting with Russians by Alex Pappas.
National security adviser H.R. McMaster on Tuesday stood by his criticism of a press report that President Trump revealed classified information during his Oval Office meeting last week with Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador to the U.S.
“I stand by my statement that I made yesterday,” McMaster said during Tuesday’s White House press briefing. “And what I’m saying is the premise of that article is false that in any way the president had a conversation that was inappropriate or that resulted in any kind of lapse in national security.”
He also charged that the leaks of Trump's conversations are much more of a national security threat.
