Tillerson tries to deflect from report Trump shared highly classified info with Russians

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson spent Monday evening explaining how President Trump interacted with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during a meeting in the Oval Office last week, without explicitly denying The Washington Post's report that Trump shared highly classified information with the men.

"During President Trump's meeting with Foreign Minister Lavrov, a broad range of subjects were discussed, among which were common efforts and threats regarding counter-terrorism," he said in a statement. "During that exchange, the nature of specific threats were discussed, but they did not discuss sources, methods, or military operations."
