White House May 10th photos posted to Flickr of Trump and Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov plus VP Pence’s Rabbit. This blogger believes that the rabbit posting is a symbolic reference on multiple levels, which is a post for another day. There is more than the “Down the rabbit hole’, a metaphor for an entry into the unknown, the disorienting or the mentally deranging“, from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbit_hole
US Senator Mark Warner is lead Democrat on the Senate Intell Committee:

US Republican Congresswoman Comstock: “Once again we are faced with inexplicable stories coming from the White House that are highly troubling. We need to have immediate classified briefings on what occurred at this meeting so that Congress can at least know as much as Russian leaders and know the impact on our national security, our allies, and our men and women protecting our country.” (May 16, 2017)
US Democratic Congresswoman Rosen “…following reports by the Washington Post and New York Times about President Trump revealing code-word classified intelligence on ISIS to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak:
‘… the President has not only endangered our troops, intelligence officials, and sources who work with us on the ground on gathering information, but he’s made it more difficult for our allies to trust and collaborate with us on defeating ISIS.” (May 16, 2017)
US Democratic Congressman Schiff: “Report that Trump shared highly classified intelligence with Russians is deeply disturbing. House Intel needs to be briefed immediately.” (May 15, 2017)
Trump tweet: “As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety,…”
Congressman Schiff tweet: “Mr. President, this isn’t about your “rights,” but your responsibilities. You could jeopardize our sources, relationships and security.” (May 16, 2017)

[Does Trump own twitter stock?]
Because Trump barred the US Press Corps from attending the meeting, while Russian media was allowed, the Washington Post Photo embedded in John McCain tweet is a Russian Foreign Ministry Photo showing Trump, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Kislyak. Trump Finally Posted White House photos with Lavrov but not Kislyak. Rather than Kislyak there is Pence’s rabbit, as seen on top!

“Rosen Statement On Reports Of Trump Compromising U.S. Intelligence On ISIS May 16, 2017 Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement following reports by the Washington Post and New York Times about President Trump revealing code-word classified intelligence on ISIS to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak:
“If reports concerning President Trump sharing code-word classified intelligence information are true, then the President has not only endangered our troops, intelligence officials, and sources who work with us on the ground on gathering information, but he’s made it more difficult for our allies to trust and collaborate with us on defeating ISIS.
“The role of the Commander in Chief is one that should be taken seriously. This is an incredible responsibility – one that should never result in the President compromising our most sensitive and highly classified information, especially to a foreign adversary.
“Congress must receive a full, immediate briefing on what transpired between the President and Russian officials.” ### https://rosen.house.gov/media/press-releases/rosen-statement-reports-trump-compromising-us-intelligence-isis

First Image of Trump-Pence with Executive Order on “Election Integrity” on May 11th, farcically following the visit of the Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassdor whereas Intell says that Russia tampered with US elections to enable Trump to win!
