Huffington Post global editorial director Howard Fineman on Monday called Donald Trump “the biggest security risk to the United States” after it was revealed the president disclosed highly classified information during a meeting with the Russian ambassador and Russian foreign minister last week.
Speaking with MSNBC’s Greta Van Susteren, conservative columnist George Will noted Trump is the same “man who discussed the Syrian missile strikes in a public dining room with the president of China during a dinner at Mar-a-Lago.”
Will argued voters wanted to try an “experiment” by electing a man without government experience. “They got it,” Will said.
“We have a situation where the president of the United States is one of the biggest—if not the biggest—security risks to the United States. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that,” Fineman said.
“You have Donald Trump literally bragging about the great intel he’s getting and handing it over to the very people we’re investigating elsewhere in government,” he added.
The Huffington Post editor said while there’s a “bumbling, humorous aspect of this,” were it not for the fact the president may be “traitorously colluding with” the Russians.
“We’re in an amazing situation where the intelligence community and the press corp are on the same side,” Fineman said.

Trump holds mass rally with Indian Prime Minister that was more like a campaign event than official one
US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday declared themselves united in a relentless fight against "terrorism," vowing a close, personal alliance in front of tens of thousands of Indian-Americans.
The two leaders, like-minded nationalists fond of fiery rallies and skeptical of traditional media, heaped praise on each other in an unusual joint appearance inside a football stadium in Houston.
To the bhangra beats of four drummers in saffron turbans, Trump in his dark suit and Modi in a yellow kurta and vest made a grand entrance with arms clenched together to ecstatic cheers from a crowd estimated by organizers at 50,000.
Here’s how the law governing whistleblowers applies to the Trump Ukraine complaint
This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.
Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.
