President Donald Trump told two Russian officials in a 2017 meeting that he was not concerned about Moscow's meddling in the U.S. election, which prompted White House officials to limit access to the remarks, the Washington Post reported on Friday.

SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "Well, we had a very, very successful meeting with the foreign minister of Russia." (5/16/2017) A summary of Trump's Oval Office meeting with Russia's foreign minister and its ambassador to the U.S. was limited to a few officials in an attempt to keep the president's comments from being disclosed publicly, the Post said, citing former officials with knowledge of the matter.The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.

Trump's 2017 meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergei Kislyak was already considered controversial after it was learned that Trump disclosed highly classified information about a planned Islamic State operation.Trump's then national security adviser HR McMaster defended his boss' disclosures.

SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER HR MCMASTER, SAYING: "That conversation was wholly appropriate to the conversation, and I think wholly appropriate with what the expectations are with our intelligence partners." (5/16/2017) This latest revelation comes amid an impeachment inquiry sparked by a whistleblower complaint that alleges the White House systematically shielded politically damaging interactions with President Trump, most notably his July phone call with Ukraine's president which was then placed on a highly classified computer system usually reserved for national security purposes, not damage control.
