Since President Trump was accused by Clinton Democrats, er, we mean anonymous intelligence sources in D.C. of leaking classified intel to the Russian government, the media has used the “Argument from Authority” fallacy to presume without question that the move damages U.S. foreign relations.
But according to General Mattis, that’s total hogwash.
Today, the Secretary of Defense pushed back strongly against the assertion, saying that he has heard “nothing” from our allies around the world.
Instead, it appears that nobody except the American media cares.
All civilized countries have an interest in combating ISIS, which was all that the President and the Russian ambassador discussed at the so-called scandalous meeting.
Mattis said on Tuesday that that in multiple discussions with U.S. allies, the issue has “never even came up,” and that he is “not worried” whatsoever about any relations being damaged via the American-Russian alliance against terrorism.
