Sen. Collins calls Trump revelation of classified info 'very troubling'

"Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russian Federation to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism", Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser again asserted that Trump didn't jeopardise USA national security by sharing intelligence with Russian diplomats, and said the conversation in the Oval Office last week was "wholly appropriate".

The intervention by Putin could turn up the pressure on the White House to provide its own transcript of the meeting.

The CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have declined to comment. The report said the intelligence "had been provided by a United States partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the USA government".

It reported that an official with knowledge of the meeting described Trump as saying: "I get great intel".

McMaster told reporters in a brief statement outside the White House on Monday evening that "the story that came out tonight as reported is false". Trump abruptly fired Comey, ousting the nation's top law enforcement official in the midst of an investigation into whether Trump's campaign had ties to Russia's election meddling.

Here are highlights from national security adviser H.R. McMaster's May 16 briefing on President Trump's Oval Office meeting with Russian officials.

He also said Mr Trump had not been aware of the source of information that was discussed with the Russian officials.

The revelations could further damage Trump's already fraught relationship with US intelligence agencies.

Originally designed as a high-drama debut for a President who still draws wide skepticism from much of the world, the trip has now taken on new scrutiny for a White House in desperate need of a win. His criticism has been followed by a steady stream of leaks to the media that have been damaging to Trump and exposed an FBI investigation into his associates' possible ties to Russian Federation.

US imposes sanctions in joint action with Saudi Arabia
Hezbollah, which has members in Lebanon's parliament and Cabinet, is considered a terrorist organization by the USA government. Hashem Safieddine, head of Hezbollah's executive council, second left, is seen in a southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon.

Former U.S. ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro warned ABC that the incident would "inevitably cause elements of Israel's intelligence service to demonstrate more caution" when sharing intelligence with its chief ally.

Comey was sacked as FBI Director last week.

"We're trying to go the extra mile - we owe the White House the chance to present us with the information, present us with the truth", Warner said.

The White House has scrambled to respond to the news for the last 24 hours, at first denying the story, then arguing that Trump was "wholly appropriate" to discuss the information with the Russians. "The secretary of state was in the room". Reports say before firing James Comey, Trump told him to lay off the investigation.

Still, experts say the revelation could jeopardize Israel's intelligence-gathering methods, which rely largely on human intelligence sources.

Syria burning 50 bodies per day after Mass Execution
Between 5,000 and 13,000 people were executed at Sednaya in the four years since a popular uprising descended into war, it said. President Bashar al-Assad's Syrian government, he alleged, had detained between 65,000 and 117,000 people over the same period.

White House officials originally regarded the worldwide swing as a reset for a beleaguered President and his staff. McMaster would originally to appear with press secretary Sean Spicer, but Spicer plans to hold a separate, off-camera session with reporters later in the day, after McMaster's appearance. "The deputy assistant was in the room".
