President Trump admitted this morning that he did share highly classified information with two of Russia’s top diplomats during an Oval Office meeting last week. He even tweeted about it this morning -- twice!
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....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 16, 2017

Trump probably shouldn't be sharing anything with Russia, if only because it looks really bad in light of the investigation of his ties to Russia, but at this point, he really probably could shoot and kill someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and get away with it. After all, Trump admitted that "this Russia thing" was one of the reasons why he fired FBI Director James Comey last week.
As you'll remember, White House officials denied Trump slipped documents to Russia late yesterday.
