Just moments after  Donald Trump  ended a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July, a national security aide reportedly rushed to a White House lawyer with an ominous warning — “The president did something wrong.”

A report from  The Washington Post  is shedding new light on the events that immediately followed the July 25 phone call, which has now sparked an impeachment inquiry of the president. As the report noted, Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was listening to the call and became so troubled after hearing Trump press his Ukrainian counterpart to dig up dirt on political foe Joe Biden that he sought out White House lawyer John Eisenberg to report what he had heard.


As the report added, Eisenberg allegedly tried to hide evidence of Trump’s attempts to pressure Zelensky by moving the notes of the call into a highly classified server.






“Scribbling notes on a yellow legal pad, Eisenberg proposed a step that other officials have said is at odds with long-standing White House protocol: moving a transcript of the call to a highly classified server and restricting access to it, according to two people familiar with Vindman’s account,” the report noted.

Vindman testified this week as part of the impeachment inquiry, reportedly telling members of Congress that he objected to Trump’s attempts to place pressure on Ukraine even before the call took place. During the phone call, Trump reportedly asked Zelensky to investigate a debunked theory that a computer server for the Democratic National Committee was being stashed in Ukraine — a server that conspiracy theorists claim has evidence that Russia did not hack the DNC during the 2016 presidential election. Trump also called on Zelensky to launch an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

After being told that the president "did something wrong", the White House lawyer began to cover up the evidence.

Oh, one thing.    If the call was "perfect" like Trump has said a million times already, why did the White House immediately move to put this "perfect" call into a place where no one would see it? 

His own lawyer didnt think it was "perfect".

Where does it say that no one else could access it. Anyone with the proper clearances could read it

Who can read it Wally?  Give us a list of who can access it without Trump's approval.

It was put in a Code Word access server used to protect national security, not Donald Trump. 

Note that the Summary wasn't even classified as Top Secret or SCI. Code Word [Sensitive Compartmentalized Information] is one click higher than Top Secret. The CIA controls Code Word clearances. 

So that infers that the % of people who had access was intentionally limited to the smallest number possible.

So while your statement it true, it's like saying anyone who can afford a space ship can go to the moon.

Probably just another never Trumper crying because Trump is going to hold the guy he wants to vote for accountable for his actions. Those glutenous never Trumper's never get full off these nothing burgers.

"Reportedly", "according to"

In other words, hear-say, rumor, conjecture, innuendo, supposition and all the other adjectives applicable to the bullshit spewed on a daily basis by the Trump Haters of America and their adoring minions.

And some have the audacity to claim that Trump Derangement Syndrome does not exist.  However, those deniers of TDS  also need to remember that Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome was once considered also considered an imaginary problem.

Trump does something wrong every single day, but this rises to crimes and misdemeanors meeting the level for impeachment. The fact that Trump just filed a change of residency to the state of Florida makes is painfully clear he knows what is coming. Florida's tax laws and laws regarding forfeiture will offer him some financial protection. Trump knows they will see his taxes.

That move to Florida seemed to come out of the blue.  

Makes sense.

Is the shit finally hitting the fan?

Are the dominoes finally falling?

Sure, because Trump never owned any properties in Florida or anything.
