Report: Trump's Russia leak is 'far worse than what is being reported

Fox News analyst Erick Erickson revealed Tuesday in a blog post that sources inside the White House have revealed that President Donald Trump's involvement with Russia goes way deeper than what's being reported.

On his website, The Resurgent, Erickson vouched for one of the sources who purportedly revealed to the Washington Post that Trump disclosed "highly classified information" during last week's meeting with Russian officials.

In a post titled, "I Know One of the Sources," Erickson said that White House staff are reportedly so fed up with the president that they are leaking information to the press because they feel Trump cares more about headlines than he does about advice.

"What sets this story apart for me, at least, is that I know one of the sources," Erickson wrote. "And the source is solidly supportive of President Trump, or at least has been and was during Campaign 2016. But the President will not take any internal criticism, no matter how politely it is given. He does not want advice, cannot be corrected, and is too insecure to see any constructive feedback as anything other than an attack."

Erickson revealed that some of the staff have covertly turned to the media in an effort to get Trump to change.

"So some of the sources are left with no other option but to go to the media, leak the story, and hope that the intense blowback gives the President a swift kick in the butt," Erickson wrote. "Perhaps then he will recognize he screwed up. The President cares vastly more about what the press says than what his advisers say. That is a real problem and one his advisers are having to recognize and use, even if it causes messy stories to get outside the White House perimeter."

Erickson then put forth his most damning allegation thus far.

"I am told that what the President did is actually far worse than what is being reported," he wrote. "The President does not seem to realize or appreciate that his bragging can undermine relationships with our allies and with human intelligence sources. He also does not seem to appreciate that his loose lips can get valuable assets in the field killed."

Erickson concluded:

You can call these sources disloyal, traitors, or whatever you want. But please ask yourself a question — if the President, through inexperience and ignorance, is jeopardizing our national security and will not take advice or corrective action, what other means are available to get the President to listen and recognize the error of his ways?

This is a real problem and I treat this story very seriously because I know just how credible, competent, and serious — as well as seriously pro-Trump, at least one of the sources is.
