Crist: Trump’s Disclosure of Classified Information Is ‘Indefensible’
U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist issued a statement condemning President Donald Trump’s actions and calling for Congressional oversight.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, denounced President Donald Trump’s alleged sharing of highly classified information about a planned Islamic state operation to Russia’s foreign minister.
“The news that the president gave highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and Russian ambassador in the Oval Office is deeply, deeply disturbing. His actions are indefensible. They delivered a self-inflicted wound to our national security, imperiling secret, sensitive operations overseas battling ISIS, putting the lives of our operatives in grave danger.
“Congress must exercise its oversight responsibilities immediately. The repercussions of the disclosure, and measures to prevent the President from repeating such a serious error, must be weighed.”
Crist represents the 13th Congressional District, which includes mid- and south Pinellas County.
