President Trump denies he said anything inappropriate in a conversation with a foreign leader as a whistle blower alleges.
President Trump denied on Thursday he said anything inappropriate to a foreign leader, as reportedly alleged by a government whistle blower.
According to a report in the Washington Post, Trump, in a phone call with an unnamed foreign leader, made an unspecified promise that so alarmed one member of the intelligence community that it yielded a complaint with the inspector general.
That IG, Michael Atkinson, met behind closed doors with the House intelligence committee on Thursday. Its chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has complained about the administration withholding information from the rightful oversight of Congress.
....Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially “heavily populated” call. I would only do what is right anyway, and only do good for the USA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 19, 2019
