Essentially this is the same place that we were before the release of the Michael Cohen recording of Trump authorizing the hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels.

Congress will begin to ask some oversight questions, considering the actions of Giuliani and Trump in trying to strong-arm Ukraine, as well as the role of the State department in facilitating the contacts for non-government agents like Rudy.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that “it wouldn’t be appropriate” to release a transcript of President Trump‘s call with his Ukrainian counterpart that is reportedly at the center of a whistleblower’s complaint.

Pompeo said on ABC’s “This Week” that the Trump administration publishes transcripts only in unique circumstances.

“Those are private conversations between world leaders, and it wouldn’t be appropriate to do so except in the most extreme circumstances,” Pompeo said.

The secretary of State deferred to the White House when asked why the administration wouldn’t provide the transcript if, as the president said, there was nothing wrong about the conversation.
