On Tuesday, Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA) insisted that the White House provide them with classified briefings about the “highly classified” intelligence Trump leaked to Russia during their White House visit.

After The Washington Post article that claimed Trump gave “code word” intelligence to Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak, Comstock put out a statement.

“Once again we are faced with inexplicable stories coming from the White House that are highly troubling,” Comstock said in the statement. “We need to have immediate classified briefings on what occurred at this meeting so that Congress can at least know as much as Russian leaders and know the impact on our national security, our allies, and our men and women protecting our country.”
