US President Donald Trump may have revealed classified information in a media interview when he claimed the CIA had been hacked, House of Representatives Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff alleged on Thursday.

Axar.az reports in an interview on Fox News Wednesday night, Trump claimed the CIA was hacked during the administration of former President Barack Obama.

"In his effort to once again blame Obama, the President appeared to have discussed something that, if true and accurate, would otherwise be considered classified information" Schiff, a Democrat, said in a statement.

In the interview, Trump said "I just want people to know, the CIA was hacked, and a lot of things taken — that was during the Obama years."
Schiff noted the president had the authority to declassify information but stressed that it should be done through established channels with agency review.

Last week, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump believed the CIA's computer systems were outdated and should be modernized
