Washington, D.C. - Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) has issued the following comment on reports regarding the president's handling of classified information:

"Russia is not a friend to the United States, and protecting our country's classified information from our adversaries is essential. While it is fully within the President's powers to manage classified information and direct our country's foreign policy, if classified information was divulged without good reason, it could not only be extremely imprudent, but also hamper our ability to gather intelligence in the future. I appreciate General McMaster and Secretary Tillerson sharing additional details, but I hope the Administration comes forward and provides a full explanation of the facts to Congress soon."
