PRICE STATEMENT ON TRUMP INTELLIGENCE LEAK
Washington – Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released the following statement responding to reports that President Trump shared highly classified information with Russian officials.
“Whatever President Trump's motivation for leaking intelligence to the Russians, his actions threaten the safety of members of the U.S. intelligence community, the lives of foreign intelligence assets, and our relationships with key allies. Such actions undermine the international community's efforts to degrade and destroy ISIS. We are clearly in uncharted territory -- the President has no respect for longstanding diplomatic norms or the grave responsibilities of his office, and his Administration is regularly misleading the American people. It’s time for my Republican colleagues to join Democrats in holding President Trump accountable for his actions. A good place to start would be an independent investigation into the troubling allegations of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.”
