Trump tweets that yeah, he did peddle classified info to Russia (and tosses top aides under the bus)

On Monday night, following The Washington Post’s bombshell report that the man-child occupying the Oval Office was peddling classified information to Russia, the White House trotted out three high level officials—National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell—to deny the story. And on Tuesday morning, Donald Trump took to Twitter to admit the story was true:

…to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.

Oh. Well. That’s awkward for Tillerson, McMaster and Powell (not to mention Fox News). Stay tuned.
