The US government took the extraordinary step of exfiltrating a top US source and assets in Russia in 2017 after President Trump's infamous Oval Office meeting with Russians, was announced Monday.
According to the CNN report – which was broadcast a few minutes before the president unleashed a Twitter attack on the network – the decision to filter out the source was made after repeated misuse of classified information by Trump and his administration, which led to concern about the source.
At that meeting in May 2017, Trump met in the Oval Office with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and the former Moscow ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak. During the meeting, he revealed secret information about another issue related to a terrorist threat by ISIS, according to press releases at the time.
The US government has taken the extraordinary step of exfiltrating a US source and asset in Russia in 2017, after President Trump revealed confidential information to the Russians in the Oval Office
Although the White House denied that Trump was disclosing information about US sources and methods at the meeting, the CIA raised concerns about the safety of the source. The report says that Trump did not reveal the identity of the source, but that his action raised concerns that it could be actively exposed. The exfiltration operation was successful, according to the report.
Trump again expressed his concern when he had a private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Hamburg in June 2017 Washington Post reported that at the end of the meeting he took possession of a translator's notes.
The government only performs an exfiltration when it believes that an asset is in extraordinary danger.
Regarding the usefulness of the Russian asset, one source said CNN there was & # 39; no equal alternative & # 39; within the Russian government.

Trump ripped again in CNN on Monday after sending a report about the exfiltration operation of 2017.
& # 39; Good news that an activist investor is now involved with AT&T. As the owner of VERY LOW RATINGS @CNN, they may now put an end to all the fake news that comes from his non-credible & # 39; anchors & # 39 ;, Trump wrote Monday morning.
& # 39; I also hear that it is losing a fortune because of its poor ratings … But most importantly, @CNN is bad for the US, & # 39; Trump went on. & # 39; Their international division is spreading bad information and fake news around the world. This is why foreign leaders always ask me: & # 39; Why do the media hate the US so much? & # 39; It is a fraudulent shame, and everything comes from the top! & # 39;
The report was confirmed by CNN morning anchor Jim Sciutto.
CIA spokeswoman Brittany Bramell replied: & # 39; CNN & # 39; s story that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life or death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false. Wrong speculation that the way the President deals with our nation's most sensitive information – to which he has access every day – has caused an alleged exfiltration operation, is inaccurate. & # 39;
White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, said the report itself has the potential to endanger lives.
