Observation re: reporting on @CIA's Russian asset.

Did @realDonaldTrump actually tell Putin about him, either before or after the exfiltration?

This is implied in a succession of reports mentioning Trump-Putin in Helsinki and the interpreter's notes. cnn.com/2019/09/09/pol…
@CIA @realDonaldTrump 2/3 Right next to observations about how few people in government knew of this asset, @jimsciutto's excellent story, and several others since, mention Trump confiscating those notes. The implication is that Trump actually gave up his identity to Russia.
3/3 Many other reports make the same point. If sources are telling or @CNN that @RealDonaldTrump gave up the source, or that @CIA had a source, in the Kremlin, I urge them to say so, so America and the courts may judge him as he deserves. Declassification requires procedures.
@CNN @realDonaldTrump @CIA (if anyone is confused by that last comment; yes, the President is the ultimate classification authority, but declassification requires he use a procedure. If Trump just told Putin about the asset, he leaked still-classified information and can be prosecuted for it after office).
