IN FAIRNESS TO DONALD....:

Trump's whistleblower-flagged 'promise' might have been to Putin, Washington Post reporters tell MSNBC (The Week, 9/19/19)

The Washington Post reported Wednesday night that a phone call between President Trump and a foreign leader "included a 'promise' that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint," leading to a standoff between Congress and the acting director of national intelligence. Two of the three major cable news networks had some big questions on Wednesday night. On MSNBC, it was: Who is this leader?

"If you look through the White House records, Trump had interactions with about four or five foreign leaders in the weeks leading up to this complaint," Washington Post reporter Greg Miller told Brian Williams. "Perhaps the most relevant one is a late-July, end-of-July conversation with Vladimir Putin, in which the White House readout was very different from the Russian readout afterward." Former U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul had a similar thought.


...it has always seemed more likely that he wants to help Putin because of their shared ideology than because of micturation blackmail or cash transactions. Anyone who opposes Muslim democracy is a friend to Donald.
