Congressman Sires’ Statement on Reports that President Trump Revealed Classified Information to Russian Officials
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement regarding reports that President Trump revealed highly sensitive classified information to Russian officials:
“It is clear that President Trump doesn’t understand or respect the longstanding norms of our institutions.
The main reason our government deems information classified is to protect the sources and methods our intelligence community and our allies use to combat threats against our homeland. Exposing this information puts American lives at risk and is unacceptable.
In addition, I continue to believe it is critical that a special prosecutor and independent commission investigate President Trump’s ties to Russia, his conflicts of interest, and the growing unanswered questions surrounding his already troubled presidency.”
