National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster reaffirmed his denial of The Washington Post’s report on President Trump sharing sensitive intelligence with Russian officials during a press briefing on Tuesday.

“I stand by my statement that I made yesterday,” McMaster said. “The premise of that article is false, that in any way the president had a conversation that was inappropriate or that resulted in any kind of lapse in national security.”

McMaster said, on the other hand, that “our national security has been put at risk by those violating confidentiality and those releasing information to the press.”
