(CNN)Defense attorney and constitutional law scholar Alan Dershowitz said Monday that President Donald Trump is now facing “the most serious charge ever made against a sitting president” after reports that he shared highly classified information with Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador during a White House visit last week.
Trump described details about how ISIS hopes to use laptop computers as bombs on planes, The Washington Post first reported. Two former officials knowledgeable of the situation confirmed to CNN’s Jake Tapper that the main points of the Post story are accurate: The President shared classified information with the Russian foreign minister.
“I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” one official with knowledge told the Post Trump said, before the President reportedly relayed specific classified intelligence.
