- Trump reportedly shared Israeli intelligence related to Isis plot
- Politicians and intelligence officials concerned information put sources at risk

Donald Trump has declared he had an “absolute right” to share information of a terrorist plot with Russia amid widespread reports he gave away highly classified information provided by Israeli intelligence.
Israel quickly declared it had “full confidence” in its intelligence-sharing agreement with the US, but there was no evidence that it had been consulted on a decision to share a tip-off – a decision the president appears to have made on the spur of the moment in a meeting last week with the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and the Russian ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak.
