Donald Trump has said he has the “absolute right” to share selected information with Russia amid allegations he passed on classified intelligence.
The President made his first statement on Twitter following a series of denials from White House officials.
“As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining…to terrorism and airline flight safety,” he wrote.
“Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against Isis & terrorism.”
