[quote]"The president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries, including threats to civil aviation," McMaster said. "At no time, at no time, were intelligence sources or methods discussed, and the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known."
McMaster's statement echoed earlier denials issued by two other administration officials who attended the meeting.
"This story is false. The president only discussed the common threats that both countries faced," said Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser for strategy. 
In addition, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump and Lavrov "did not discuss sources, methods or military operations."
McMaster said the statements by Powell and Tillerson "should outweigh [the accounts] of anonymous sources [in the Post report].
"I was in the room," McMaster concluded. "It didn't happenhttp://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/05/15/white-house-denies-report-trump...

Crossposting from the other thread:

Some possible scenarios here: 1) someone in the meeting talked to former officials and to the Post; 2) people not in the meeting took it upon themselves to make something up; or 3) someone in the meeting talked to other current and former officials who then talked to the Post.

2 seems unlikely, because whoever talked to the Post appears to have some knowledge of the meeting (such as knowing terrorist threats and ISIS were discussed), so 1 and 3 being being possibly more likely, who all was in the meeting?

Well.  Trump's appointee, who owes his job to Trump, and who might even have been asked by Trump to pledge his loyalty, has cleared Trump of all wrong-doing.

I'm glad that's settled.
