ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says President Trump's information sharing with senior Russian officials is 'totally outrageous' and 'pathetic.' Speaking at the Center for American Progress Ideas conference, Pelosi described Trump as helter-skelter on foreign policy and harshly criticized his sharing of sensitive information with senior Russian officials during a White House meeting last week. The president took to Twitter on Tuesday to defend his actions in the face of intense criticism, including from some of his fellow Republicans. Two U.S. officials said Trump shared the intelligence, supplied by a U.S. ally in the fight against the militant Islamist group, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak during an Oval Office meeting last Wednesday. The disclosures roiled the administration as it struggled to move past the backlash over Trump's abrupt firing on May 9 of FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating potential ties between Russia and Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.
