He's never been willing to hand over information, like his tax returns, that presumably contained damaging information. If there was really something bad in these latest documents, I'd imagine that he'd fight or stonewall their release. We'll see soon enough though. Wondering out loud... Could this be to head off an impeachment inquiry? Because the inquiry would instantly make all the stalling with the Russia affair obsolete, and serve as justification to get all sorts of documents they've been blocking for the past few months. This way, they keep the focus on the Ukraine thing, where they can throw mud at the Dems doing this to protect their candidate, or whatever other nonsense they come up with. Also, there's no tape: Rough transcripts of the calls — there are no recordings from which they are based, and they can vary in their level of detail — were, at the beginning of the administration, widely shared documents that could be viewed by the White House chief of staff, officials at the National Security Council and people working in the region at the State Department or the Defense Department. That changed after the full transcripts of Mr. Trump’s conversations with the president of Mexico and the prime minister of Australia were leaked in 2017. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/24/us/politics/trump-calls-world-leaders.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
