1. Leaking top secret information provided by Israel to Russia’s foreign minister, endangering the life of an Israeli spy embedded in ISIS ranks. His defense: alternating between he didn’t reveal anything, he didn’t know the source of the information, and, according to aides speaking anonymously, he threw it as an innocuous aside during a conversation. Media reports indicate that the Mossad is furious but the official Israeli statements say that they are confident in their relationship with Trump and will continue sharing intelligence. Ditto for other key allies such as Britain.
2. Pressuring Comey in February to end a probe into Michael Flynn, his former national security advisor who allegedly had ties to Russia. Trump defense: Denying the account, which was made in a New York Times report citing Comey’s memo written at the time. At least three congressional committees are saying they will subpoena the memo. IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The entire account is based on anonymous sources, and a memo which the Times acknowledges they hadn’t seen.
