Now however, Mr Trump's own security people and foreign allies will be anxious about how much to tell the president and his ability to keep tight-lipped.
Israeli officials, however, did not confirm that they were the source of the information.
Israel was the source of the Islamic State (Isis)-related intelligence that President Donald Trump shared with Russian diplomats in a meeting at the Oval Office earlier in May, three government officials with knowledge of the matter revealed.
At least one European nation has said it may stop sharing intelligence with the USA, if it's proved Trump shared the information with Russian Federation. They said it was considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the USA government. Comey said he replied that "I agree he is a good guy" but said nothing to Trump about limiting the investigation.
Mr. McMaster said the information was conveyed to Russia's foreign minister during a discussion of the threat posed by Islamic State, and in particular the danger to commercial airliners.
He cast some of Trump's revelations as information that was available from publicly available "open-source reporting" and added that the president did not know the precise source of the intelligence he had shared, suggesting that Trump could not have compromised confidential sources, the Associated Press reported.
The leak reflects "a level of nearly desperation on the part of whoever provided it to stop this kind of thing from happening again", said Jon Finer, who was the chief of staff to former secretary of state John Kerry.
"Somebody is selectively leaking information and facts, and there's a reason it's selective; it's because they're trying to create - you know, and again, for me to guess why - but at least it appears as though somebody is trying to create a narrative or a problem", he said. "The story that came out tonight, as reported, is false".
"Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States learned only through the espionage capabilities of a key partner". An excerpt from an official transcript of the meeting reveals that Trump told them, "I get great intel". Still, it will only heighten Trumps strained relations with intelligence workers and former officials, who view Russian Federation as an adversary. Mr Trump, who still openly laments having to dismiss his first national security adviser, Michael T Flynn, has groused that Mr McMaster talks too much in meetings, and the president has referred to him as "a pain", according to one of the officials.
Comey, who led the investigation to find ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, was abruptly fired last Tuesday. The feeling runs strong that USA allies will be more reluctant to share sensitive intelligence information with the United States, lest the president put sources at risk. Israeli officials declined to comment. Yet U.S. allies and some members of Congress expressed concern bordering on alarm.
Bob Corker, the Republican head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called the allegations "very, very troubling". But the chaos that is being created by the lack of discipline its creating an environment that I think makes it creates a worrisome environment..
