Lieberman said Israel ‘tweaked’ intel-sharing after Trump revelations to Russians


ed note–despite Lieberman’s assurances that the change would not affect the ‘close U.S./Israel intelligence sharing relationship, all can rest assured that when the BIG BANG arrives (which Israel is planning in the interests of scuttling Trump & co’s agenda vis a vis a ‘peace deal’ between Israel and the Palestinians) that this paradigm–the ‘damaged intelligence relationship’ between the US, Israel, and the West in the aftermath of Trump ‘leaking classified intelligence’ is going to be put into play in a serious way and could even wind up being the main justification of the impeachment proceedings that Judea, Inc is just itching to get started.

Israel’s defense minister said Israel had made changes to how it shares intelligence with the United States in the wake of President Donald Trump’s revelation of highly classified information to Russian officials.

Avigdor Lieberman told Army Radio on Wednesday that the change would not affect the close U.S,.-Israel intelligence sharing relationship.

“I can confirm that we did a spot repair and that there’s unprecedented intelligence cooperation with the United States,” Lieberman said, according to a Voice of America report.

“What we had to clarify with our friends in the United States, we did,” said Lieberman, who would not elaborate. “We did our checks.”

Trump in a meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador to the United States earlier this month described in detail information that led the United States to conclude that the Islamic State terrorist group was planning to attack an aircraft with a laptop bomb.

He did not describe sources, but the detail could lead the Russians to learn who had provided then information and could identify the spy who infiltrated the group, according to reports.

Some reports said Israel had shared the information with Trump.

Britain also reassessed its intelligence sharing after U.S. media published details about this week’s deadly bomb attack on a pop concert in Manchester. Trump ordered an investigation into those leaks.
