US scrambled to get a top spy out of Russia after Trump revealed highly classified info: report

On Monday, CNN reported that the United States extracted a top spy from Russia in 2017.


This secret mission was undertaken, in part, due to concerns about President Donald Trump and the risk that his actions as president might be compromising vitally important national security secrets, due to his improper and unusual friendliness with Russian officials.

In one famous example, Trump revealed code-word intelligence information about Israeli Mossad operations to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office.
