Democrats Want Access To President Trump's Calls To Foreign Leaders

Reuters: Trump-Putin phone calls in Democrats' sights: Schiff

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congress is determined to get access to Donald Trump’s calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin and other world leaders, the chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee said on Sunday, citing concerns the Republican president may have jeopardized national security.

“I think the paramount need here is to protect the national security of the United States and see whether in the conversations with other world leaders and in particular with Putin that the president was also undermining our security in a way that he thought would personally benefit his campaign,” Democrat Adam Schiff said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Congress is investigating a whistleblower complaint that said Trump solicited a political favor from Ukraine’s president that could help him get re-elected to a second term next year. Democrats say Trump’s actions jeopardized national security and the integrity of U.S. elections.

WNU Editor: If the White House complies with this request and creates this precedent, no foreign leader will want to talk candidly to the U.S. President in the future knowing that their conversation will be disclosed. If the White House refuses this request .... which they should .... it will be used as an excuse (or one of many) on why the U.S. President should be impeached. Bottom line. The Democrats have nothing. This is beginning to look like a witch hunt (like the Mueller investigation), but in this case the Congress is using their oversight authority to pry into the executive branch of government and its discussions with foreign leaders and foreign policy.

President (The Executive Branch) runs foreign policy.

Senate has an advise and consent role. It also approves or rejects treaties.

The House of Representatives run by Democrats is not suppose to run foreign policy.

Democrats are clear & present danger to the USA.

I am hard pressed to find anyone who wants to talk to Trump as they tend to get fired, have their female parts grabbed, go to jail,get squeezed, or cannot wash his spooge off them. There is one big exception...dictators who share Trumps beliefs or have him in their pockets. In any event, he uses insecure phones so every other security service has him fully recorded.

Ted Kennedy and Senator Dodd could grab female parts all day long while in elected office and nothing.

If a jock grabs a girl his age by the short hairs and she willingly leaves the party happily that is one thing. If a pencil necked geek does the same thing and she slaps him and call it assault, it is assault.

That is the way of the world son (6:19 AM).
