Greg Jaffe

Greg Jaffe, Washington, D.C. Reporter for the Washington Post. Jaffe was one of the reporters who broke the news that Donald Trump leaked highly classified intelligence to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in the Oval Office. When Jaffe appeared on Rachel Maddow discussing how he wrote the story without divulging the sensitive information to the public I just wanted to hug him. The White House completely denied the story and later Trump admitted it claiming he had the "absolute right" to leak classified intelligence to Russia.
