The White House chose to wheel out the one figure in the Trump universe who is seen as having some shred of credibility, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who issued what could only be described as a non-denial denial.

“There’s nothing that the president takes more seriously than the security of the American people,” McMaster said, with a straight face, before continuing, “At no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed, and the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known.”

McMaster called the story “false” and said he knows that because he was in the room.

The only problem with McMaster’s phony denial was that he was refuting something not even asserted by The Washington Post, as several reporters pointed out after his statement.

McMaster saying "sources and methods" is a red herring. Article doesnt say Trump revealed sources and methods to Russians.

McMaster statement fundamentally insufficient. WaPo reported POTUS revealed Intel from secret source, not that POTUS revealed the source

The fact that the administration rushed to respond to the Post‘s report indicates they know just how damaging it has the potential to be. But their attempt to use wordplay to provide cover isn’t fooling anyone.

If they really wanted the public to know what went on in Trump’s meeting with the Russians, they would have invited the American press into the room, not just the Russian media.

Are you trying to say the Russian press was inside the room , during the meeting?

Serial stupid still at work I see. First claims no one was in the room, then when shown McMaster was in the room goes off with more fake news.

It has been denied by McMaster, Tillerson, and others. It is another in a long line of fake news by the WaPo.
Thanks from webguy4

Jesus Christ the meeting between Comey and Trump was in the Oval Office where everything is recorded after Bill Clinton and the cigar incident.
