Donald Trump said reporters leaking classified information should be jailed

"There is probably more evidence of links between Russian Federation and the Clinton campaign than anyone even could imagine between Russian Federation and people involved in the Trump campaign", Rep. King told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable".

After a report surfaced Monday that President Trump leaked highly classified information to Russian diplomats, some of his previous tweets, as well as those of his Republican supporters aren't holding up so well. Poll: Most want "independent' probe of Trump, Russia MORE immediately if they discovered she shared classified information with a Russian official".

Since the presidential election, Trump and his associates have come under public scrutiny for their praise and seemingly warm relationship to the Kremlin.

Trump said there's "no evidence" of his administration colluding with Russian Federation - and would often refer to the reports as "FAKE NEWS".

Other Republicans were equally vocal against "leakers" of classified information.

U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly told former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey that members of the press who leak classified information should be imprisoned. In the month of July of previous year, he tweeted, 'Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.

CNN political commentator Ana Navarro responded with contempt for her own party after The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump had allegedly revealed "highly classified" information to Russian officials.

Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at the White House last week.
