Trump's "share with Russia" leak hits hard in Europe

Associated Press

The president's decision to "share" intel with Russia is landing with a thud in Europe:

  • The big story: A "senior European intelligence official" told the AP that his country, which was not identified, could stop sharing information with the U.S. to protect its sources.
  • One named quote: German lawmaker Burkhard Lischka told the AP it would be "highly worrying" if the story was true, adding such behavior would make Trump "a security risk for the entire world."
  • Why it matters: The U.S. regularly shares and receives classified security information with European countries. Jeopardizing those relationship could long outlast the Trump administration.
