The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump divulged highly classified information during his meeting with Russian officials last week.
Officials told the Post that the information was incredibly sensitive and that its exposure endangers the relationship with an ally, which had not approved sharing the information with Russia. This ally, officials told the Post, "has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State."
BuzzFeed, The New York Times and Reuters later confirmed the Post's report.

The CIA declined to comment to the Post. The NSA did not respond to the Post's requests for comment.
A former intelligence official told CNBC that if Trump's reveal was unintentional, it is a demonstration of "shocking disregard or lack of understanding of
