Trump’s communications with foreign leader are part of whistleblower complaint that spurred standoff between spy chief and Congress, former officials say

The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trump’s communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, said the former officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

It was not immediately clear which foreign leader Trump was speaking with or what he pledged to deliver, but his direct involvement in the matter has not been previously disclosed. It raises new questions about the president’s handling of sensitive information and may further strain his relationship with U.S. spy agencies. One former official said the communication was a phone call.

Oh Please!

The ‘Intelligence’ Service in the country has turned themselves into a joke trying to get Trump.

First of all, I don’t care if it is true. Trump can negotiate however he wants to. Second of all, only an idiot believes anything coming out of the US Intelligence community.

“This is my last election ... After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama said, expressing confidence that he would win a second term.

“I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” said Medvedev, Putin’s protégé and long considered number two in Moscow’s power structure.

Sounds like a promise to me.

Anyone surprised that after discovering what the FBI had done Trump trusted the FSB more?

Was it something along the lines of "This is my last election. After my election I'll have more flexibility." ??

Really!
Anything Trump promised should be considered the same as an Obama promise.
The Reactionary Times in Congress are destroying possible cooperation.

Trump had every right to discuss issues with foreign leaders with whom we are not at war and tell them something like, “I agree with you that this policy is wrong and I will change it if I am elected.” Democrats do this all the time, discussing issues like global warming with foreign leaders

I’d like to know why the Trump administration hasn’t done more to replace people in replaceable positions to get control of the government. He didn’t fire all of the US attorneys, like is traditional, he didn’t replace all political appointees like is traditional. Granted, he has Prebius and others stabbing him in the back from day one, but seriously, this failure has caused him no end of pain.

This is a new twist in smearing Trump. Now someone in the intelligence community has decided that he was elected to implement his agenda, not Trump.

Gives Schiff another opportunity to go before the cameras and absolutely weep and bleed with his alarm and concern over who Trump has colluded with again.

“If you help us stop illegals at your southern border and process them at the north, we will help you with intel sharing on your cartels and king pins”

This is an example of diplomatic negotiations.

This is also something that deranged anti-Trumpers now think is bad.
