NSC staffer discussed Trump-Ukraine call outside council, called conversation 'outrageous': sources
A name attached to the likely NSC blabbermouth
After President Trump's July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, it was reported to then-senior National Security Council (NSC) leadership that an NSC staffer had relayed information about the call to individuals outside the NSC -- and characterized the president's conversation as "outrageous," sources familiar with the matter told Fox News.

The development comes as Fiona Hill, a former special assistant to the president who worked on European and Russian affairs, is set to give a deposition next week. Fox News has reached out to Hill for over a week with questions about whether she helped prep for the July 25 call or received any readout of the call.

Hill departed the White House in July, after working under ex-National Security Advisers H.R. McMaster and John Bolton.

#1 I wonder what part of the transcript she finds outrageous

#2 Who elected them? By what constitutional authority do they operate?

#3 One thing this poop parade has shown me is how two people can look at the same thing, (transcript, in this case) and one sees black and the other white.

Absolutely everything is confirmation of my suspicions beliefs.

So this NSC staffer released classified information and that's O.K.?

No, it's not OK. Somebody needs to go to jail.

#7 Its going to be like this until the elections, fraudulent news meant to slander a president. They report as if we did not read the transcripts...

#8 IMHO, the Dems are going to pay a huge price in the voting booth. I wouldn't be surprised if the Pubs picked up seats in the House--maybe enough to flip the House. Clinton survived imeachment and the Pubs lost seats. I don't see an impeachment case against Trump but the Dems will probably continue their 3 year harassment. The case against Clinton was far stronger. Perhaps there will be something in the DOJ IG report. Haven't seen much from Wray, Durham, Barr, or Horowitz so far. We still have two or three systems of justice, one for us, one for Pubs, and exoneration for Dems and fellow travelers.
