Newsweek: Donald Trump's Israel Intel Betrayal Under Scrutiny After Hamas Attack/Trump squealed top secrets at least 10 times?

Mod: Trump has leaked sensitive intelligence to our enemies many times. Is it different now? 

Donald Trump's Israel Intel Leak Under Scrutiny After Hamas Attack (Newsweek link): Donald Trump's sharing of alleged classified intelligence to Russian officials in the White House has come under scrutiny amid a large-scale attack by the Hamas Islamist military group against Israel.

In May 2017, the former president defended his actions after he was found to have discussed sensitive details about an alleged Islamic State (ISIS) plot with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office. Trump said he had an absolute right to do so. The intel was said to have been provided to the U.S. from Israel.
It was suggested at the time that the former president's handing over sensitive information from Israel could have damaged the relationship between the two countries. It also could have raised the possibility that the details could be passed from Russia to Iran, the Gulf nation that is a fierce adversary of Israel and has long supported Hamas.

On Saturday, Hamas, designated a terrorist group by the U.S. and the European Union, launched a large-scale attack against Israel, resulting in the deadliest day of violence in the Israel-Palestine conflict for decades. More than 700 people have been killed in Israel, and a further 400 in Gaza, since the incursion by Hamas, according to the Associated Press.

Thom Hartmann, author and political commentator, posted on X, formerly Twitter, while sharing a 2017 article from The Washington Post: "Hamas apparently knew how to get around Israel's Iron Dome defenses. They probably learned this from Iran. Iran almost certainly got the information from Russia. And who gave it to Russia? Sure looks like it was Donald Trump, at the request of Putin."
Trump has allegedly disclosed sensitive or classified national security secrets at least 10 Times (AlterNet link): The latest allegations against Donald Trump, that he disclosed national security secrets related to America’s top secret nuclear submarines to a foreign national at his Mar-a-Lago resort just months after leaving office, has experts raising alarms – especially as the ex-president is currently under indictment on Espionage Act charges.
But the Mar-a-Lago disclosure is far from the first allegation against Trump for disclosing or revealing national security secrets, sensitive, or classified information.

MSNBC’s Steve Benen, a producer for The Rachel Maddow Show and editor of the MaddowBlog, put together a non-chronological list he calls, “The Top 10 Instances In Which Donald Trump Allegedly Shared Sensitive Information For Reasons Unknown.” As it turns out, just like the latest incident, at least two others involve nuclear submarine secrets.
