Current and former U.S. officials told The Post that Trump relayed information from a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria during the meeting last week. Trump's "code-word information" disclosure risks damaging the relation with the intelligence source, which has access to ISIS' inner workings.

Two Israeli intelligence officers on Tuesday confirmed to BuzzFeed that Israel shared specific intelligence with the U.S. about ISIS plots to smuggle explosive laptops onto planes.
