Since the presidential election, Trump and his associates have come under public scrutiny for their praise and seemingly warm relationship to the Kremlin.
Charles Krauthammer reacted to a Washington Post report that President Trump revealed classified information during a meeting with Russian envoys in the Oval Office.
A USA official with knowledge of the meeting told the Post that the president "revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies".
"You may remember, candidate Trump repeatedly bashed Hillary Clinton during the campaign while accusing her of leaking classified information".

The Democratic National Committee said in a statement that Russian Federation "no longer has to spy on us to get information" because Trump will tell them whenever they ask. After giving a recap of the latest developments, such as Israel being the source of the info and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster stating that Trump's sharing of information was "wholly appropriate," Smith then pointed out Trump's previous tweets slamming Clinton.
