Trump Rants: Whistleblower Story Is More “Fake News”

The Huffington Post reports:

President Donald Trump on Thursday denied having made an “inappropriate” comment to a foreign leader during a phone call, as The Washington Post reported a day earlier. Trump questioned whether anybody is “dumb enough” to believe that he would say something “inappropriate” on the phone with a foreign leader.

The Post reported Wednesday that a U.S. intelligence official filed a whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, claiming Trump made a troubling “promise” to a foreign leader, whose name was not disclosed.

Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson reportedly found the complaint to be credible and considered it a matter of “urgent concern.” But Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire has so far refused to share details of the complaint with Congress,
