Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin) says American lives could be at risk if Russian officials gained highly classified information from President Trump.
Trump gave information about Islamic State militants to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during a White House meeting last week, according to reports from the Washington Post and other news organizations.
Current and former U.S. officials told the Post the information shared with the two Russian diplomats "jeopardized a critical source of intelligence" on ISIS.
"This is a meeting that should never have taken place in the first place," Swalwell, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told KQED early Tuesday.
"Russia attacked our democracy. They don't have any business being in the Oval Office. He (Trump) shouldn't exchange anything more than pleasantries, let alone intelligence," Swalwell said.
