The answer my friend is blowin’ on the wind. But for now, we’ve got nothing but a lot of hot air. WaPo: Trump’s communications with foreign leader are part of whistleblower complaint that spurred standoff between spy chief and Congress. “The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trump’s communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter … But acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire has refused to share details about Trump’s alleged transgression with lawmakers, touching off a legal and political dispute that has spilled into public view and prompted speculation that the spy chief is improperly protecting the president.” You know how to whistle, don’t you? You just put your lips together and tweet. (I’m dubious that this report, even if/when released, will live up to the hype. What’s troubling for sure is the pattern of obfuscation and the constant body checks on checks and balances…)

+ Trump calls the report fake news and says, besides, “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…” (Life needs a laugh track.)

+ Meanwhile, at the border, the line of the day: “Sir, there could be some merit in not discussing that.”
