Mike Thompson (D- St. Helena, District 5)
"I am deeply concerned by reports that the President compromised a significant intelligence asset. Congress must be briefed on the full extent of this alleged leak and the damage it could pose."
Doris Matsui (D-Sacramento, District 6)
"These reports are deeply troubling to me, and if true, extremely damaging to our national security. This requires an immediate explanation."
Ami Bera (D-Elk Grove, District 7)
"If the reports are true that President Trump shared highly classified information with Russian officials, this is the latest in a series of concerning actions that undermine the trust of our allies and compromise our national security. Intelligence sharing is crucial in the fight against terror, and this reckless disclosure jeopardizes our relationships, and our ability to win that fight. Americans deserve a leader who has sound judgment and respect for the work our intelligence community and allies risk their lives for."
Jerry McNerney (D-Stockton, District 9)
Mark DeSaulnier (D-Concord, District 11)
“President Trump’s decision to disclose highly classified information without considerable thought, consultation with the intelligence community, or recognition of the consequences is deeply disturbing. The President divulged more information to the Russians than the United States has thus far shared with its allies. This action hurts the credibility of the United States, endangers sources, methods, and assets in the field—many of whom are risking their lives to keep America safe—and jeopardizes our national security.
“The timing of this leak and the circumstances surrounding the firing of Attorney General Comey, who had recently requested more resources for the ongoing investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, must be immediately investigated by an independent commission. I urge my Republican colleagues in Congress to put country before party and fully investigate any and all ties between President Trump and Russia."
Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco, District 12)
“If news reports are true, President Trump has compromised a key source of intelligence collection against ISIS and jeopardized the security of the American people.
“Even if President Trump unwittingly blew a highly classified code-word source to the Russians, that would be dangerous enough. If the President outed a highly classified code-word source intentionally, that would be even more dangerous.
“Congress must be given a full briefing on the extent of the damage President Trump has done in compromising highly classified code-word intelligence to the Russians.”
Barbara Lee (D-Oakland, District 13)
"Two equally terrifying scenarios: either Trump leaked classified intel because he was ignorant & uniformed or because of his ties to Russia."
"The show Trump is unfit to be president. Our allies, our intel agencies & the American people all fear his erratic behavior."
"My GOP colleagues need to find some guts & hold Trump accountable. This goes far beyond party politics – our democracy is at stake."
Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin, District 15)
“The sooner we have independent commission & special prosecutor on #TrumpRussia ties, the safer we will all be. Pass #ProtectOurDemocracy Act”
Ro Khanna (D-Fremont, District 17)
"If Donald Trump can't be trusted with classified intelligence, how can we trust him with the presidency?"
Anna Eshoo (D-Silicon Valley, District 18)
“The reports that the President shared highly classified information with Russian diplomats is deeply troubling for several reasons. As a veteran of the House Intelligence Committee, I know full well the jeopardy this places our intelligence officers in; the damage this inflicts on an allied country who entrusted the U.S. with the intelligence; and how handing over the most sensitive information to the least trustworthy country - Russia - threatens our national security and our military who serve to protect us.
“The President makes the case almost daily as to why an independent, bipartisan commission is essential to investigate what ties exist between the President and Russia.”
Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara, District 24)
"President’s leaking of classified intel to Russian officials underscores need for an independent commission to continue Russia investigation."
Steve Knight (R-Santa Clarita, District 25)
"It is time for an investigation of Russia’s intervention in the U.S. Election. There is too much at stake at home and abroad to not take this step. There is so much conflicting information from many sources, Americans deserve the opportunity to learn the truth."
Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village, District 26)
"Russia is a hostile foreign govt with a history of violating intl law. 's actions put us in danger. Need to ."
"Trump’s actions show a contempt for the American ppl & those who work to protect us that is utterly incomprehensible."
Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park, District 27)
“I think we found where the leaks are coming from.”
"Republicans spent countless hours investigating Clinton's handling of classified material. I expect no less now."
Adam Schiff (D-Burbank, District 28)
"Report that Trump shared highly classified intelligence with Russians is deeply disturbing. House Intel needs to be briefed immediately."
Tony Cardenas (D-San Fernando Valley, District 29)
"These reports are absolutely unacceptable. At what point does it become clear that we need an independent investigation? @HouseGOP"
Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks, District 30)
"Is Donald the #1 threat to America's national security?"
Grace Napolitano (D-El Monte, District 32)
"Russia interfered in our election, is an enemy to democracy & absolutely should not be given highly classified information. "
Ted Lieu (D-Torrance, District 33)
".@realDonaldTrump leaked highly classified information to the Russian Ambassador. THIS IS NOT OKAY. When will #GOP stand up to the insanity? "
".@POTUS has apparently committed two high crimes in less than a week: Obstruction of Justice & leaking classified info to a foreign power."
"Dear @realDonaldTrump: WaPo followed your advice & looked into the leaking of highly classified information. Turns out the leaker is you."
Norma Torres (D-Pomona, District 35)
"How is @RealDonaldTrump fit to run the country when he’s bragging about highly classified intel to the Russians???"
Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Los Angeles, District 40)
"Horrifying, but not surprising."
Nanette Barragan (D-San Pedro, District 44)
".@realDonaldTrump revealing classified info to the Russians is either clueless or reckless. Both dangerous to the security of our nation."
