One San Diego-area lawmaker told NBC 7 it's the president's "prerogative" to share intelligence.
U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R - 50th District) issued a statement Tuesday that it's not "truly known to what extent information was actually relayed."
“The President has a prerogative to share certain details or not share certain details in settings of his choice," Hunter said.
Israel was the key American partner who provided ISIS-related intelligence that President Donald Trump shared with Russian diplomats at a meeting last week, NBC News reported.
Israel's involvement, first reported by The New York Times, was confirmed by three government officials with knowledge of the matter.
On Tuesday, the White House defended Trump's discussing information, reported to be highly classified and involving an ISIS plot on airplanes, with Russia. But the disclosure ignited a firestorm of controversy in Washington, D.C.
Reached through a spokesperson, Rep. Hunter said, "It’s a lesson to do better understanding the threat of leaks especially, although it’s important to fully understand the extent of information conveyed and whether it compromises any relationship or asset."
