BREAKING: Trump responds to intel scandal, says it’s nothing more than presidential harassment!

Last night we told you about a new ‘scandal’ report in the Washington Post about Trump promising something (we don’t know what) to a world leader (we don’t know which one), so bad apparently that it caused a whistleblower to run to the IG of the intel department.

But Trump is responding to the story now, calling it fake news and explaining that he is always aware that the intelligence services are listening to his phone calls:

We pointed out last night that the two sources were FORMER officials (read Obama officials) and that we simply didn’t know enough about this to draw any conclusions. And we still don’t, other than what Trump added to it today.

I urged strong skepticism about this report last night and that hasn’t changed. Trump paints the report as absurd and, along with his explanation, he sounds believable doing so. Unless something changes that, there is literally nothing to see here.
