Moscow calls reports that Trump shared classified information with the Russians 'fake'

Russia denied The Washington Post's bombshell report that President Trump shared highly sensitive, confidential information with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a meeting last week.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called the reports "another fake," The Wall Street Journal reports, and she wrote on her Facebook page: "Guys, have you been reading too many American newspapers again? Don't read them."

Trump confirmed the reports on Twitter on Tuesday morning while defending having the "absolute right" to share the information.
