DeSaulnier’s Statement on President Trump’s Admission to Revealing Highly Classified Information

21

Washington, D – Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s admission that he revealed highly classified information to Russian officials.

 

“President Trump’s decision to disclose highly classified information without considerable thought, consultation with the intelligence community, or recognition of the consequences is deeply disturbing. The President divulged more information to the Russians than the United States has thus far shared with its allies. This action hurts the credibility of the United States, endangers sources, methods, and assets in the field—many of whom are risking their lives to keep America safe—and jeopardizes our national security.

 

“The timing of this leak and the circumstances surrounding the firing of Attorney General Comey, who had recently requested more resources for the ongoing investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, must be immediately investigated by an independent commission. I urge my Republican colleagues in Congress to put country before party and fully investigate any and all ties between President Trump and Russia,” said Congressman Mark DeSaulnier.

  1. “I urge my Republican colleagues in Congress to put country before party…”

    Spoken like a true hypocrite and worthless member of the Democratic party. Mark DeSaunier; the gift that keeps giving.

  2. Go die already, and why do you guys keep posting every single this idiot says? How about something useful we can read, not fake news, damn you are just as pathetic as him. Go ahead and respond and act like you’re not fake news either, well reporting fake news makes you fake news ECC.

  3. Fake News and he is inciting people wrongly. Desaulnier is worthless to us.
    Find something better to do but pass gas Mark.

  5. Oh puhleeze…if Hillary had done 1/5 of what Putin-lite has done you would have had her impeached and executed for treason last week.

    • Tired of Libtard Sheep, move to Mexico or Middle East where you belong, America belongs to conservatives, we control every branch of government, Killary had Benghazi where 4 Americans died, Clinton Foundation, Email Server, Russian Uranium deal, she will soon be in jail when new FBI Director is appointed haha I can’t wait to see you snowflakes melt

      • What a shame. You keep trying to think, and nothing happens.

        We do know you’re a Dumbo, that’s for sure.

  6. FAKE NEWS

    ect is just part of the media wing of the dnc. ect wouldnt know real journalism if it slapped them in the face.

    • @Dude

      Be careful. ECT just told me that this site is not for me. Watch out for their gestapo tactics if you don’t fit in with their agenda or ideals.

      You’re right about the journalism bit.

  7. Wouldn’t it be great if California became real patriots. It still may happen. Most demos are draining people’s wallets for losers who suck off the system because they can. Pretty soon the providers of free stuff are gonna get fed up and take people like Desaulnier and vote them out.

  8. Liberalism is a mental, emotional, hysterical psychological disease that destroys common sense.

    How quickly they forget that Hillary gave away our uranium to Putin and as Secretary of State said she didn’t understand that the “C” on documents meant “Classified” 🤣

    DeSaulnier you and your Democratic colleagues are delusional morons!

  9. I’ve been following this all day, and no where did I see that President Trump said that he revealed highly classified information. Even CNN did not report that! ECT, please check your sources. As a side note, if he felt it was necessary for the protection of the U.S., he has the authority to…

  10. Great, so Mark DeSailnier is now speaking for the president. These liberals are out of control and damaging our country, the same one they live in!

  11. ECT, you should consider rewording the title of this article and the opening paragraph. The way it is written is as if you wrote those items, not that DeSaulnier did. You have his press release in quotes.

    We need accurate reporting. These type of things, either intentional or by mistake is part of the problem with reporting nowadays. We can do better…

  12. I agree, the title just fuels the fire of rhetoric. Mark Desaulnier has no factual evidence of his claim. ETC is extending Desaulnier idiocy. Following an idiot makes you twice the idiot. Let congress get the real facts before spreading speculations that are unproven.

  13. “The President divulged more information to the Russians than the United States has thus far shared with its allies.” This is an opinion of a hateful man and not a fact.
    “The timing of this leak and the circumstances surrounding the firing of Attorney General Comey, who had recently requested more resources for the ongoing investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, must be immediately investigated by an independent commission.” This is a misleading statement from a hateful man as the intelligence was revealed in front of staff during a meeting involving the Russian Ambassador. Not a leak at all. Also showing his lack of understanding the role of ex FBI Director Comey by calling him the Attorney General. Mark De Saulinier is so hateful he sends out fake press releases like this one. Do we really want such a man to represent us?

    • You have no proof that Trump said anything. You were not there. Yes he is direct and forward with his statements, but I believe he cares more about the US getting back on tract, out of debt, out or terrorist arms way, and respecting immigration laws that were made before him than any career politician. Others like Desaulnier are only worried about themselves. Finally, we have a leader for the middle class that doesn’t back off the real issues facing our country. They put Trump down because he is real and they are afraid he will make them earn their pay. The Russia thing is all made up you will see. The investigation will probably reveal how corrupt the Obama Hillary group was and is. For Gods sake get over the fact that the people want Trump and move forward so we can get some tax relief, more jobs, security, and better health care.

  14. The disrespectful way these comments are written makes me really concerned that we have racist bigots lurking right here in our community. No one is above the law including POTUS. Trump should be a role model but instead he is tearing this country apart with his insults and lack of civility.

  15. Most Americans are moderates (including me) so I’ll leave all this fighting to the far left and the far right. They’re both extremists, and thankfully moderates are politically invisible. It’s the way we want it.

    Fighting politically is pointless.
