Israel Said to Be Source of Secret Intelligence Trump Gave to Russians

The New York Times ------- The classified intelligence that President Trump disclosed in a meeting last week with Russian officials at the White House was provided by Israel, according to a current and a former American official familiar with how the United States obtained the information.
