Russia says White House cannot publish Trump-Putin phone calls without its permission
The Kremlin said on Monday that Washington would need Russian consent to publish transcripts of phone calls between the US president, Donald Trump, and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

Congress is determined to get access to Mr Trump's calls with Mr Putin and other world leaders, the US House Intelligence Committee's chairman said on Sunday, citing concerns that the Republican president may have jeopardised national security.

Asked about those comments, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Russia would be prepared to discuss the issue with Washington if it sent Moscow a signal.

Russia wishes. Next it might be the translator's notes on the Helsinki Meeting.

APsplainin | Trump scolds Romney over criticism about Trump's CHINA WORDS
Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said in a statement to the Omaha World-Herald: "Americans don't look to Chinese commies for the truth. If the Biden kid broke laws by selling his name to Beijing, that's a matter for American courts, not communist tyrants running torture camps."
The question of whether to dodge or defend [WHAT?] is perhaps most critical for the Republican senators in competitive races next year. Those Republicans have little incentive to criticize the president because they can't risk alienating Trump's base voters. But their futures also depend on peeling off enough swing voters who turned against Trump last year. An impeachment vote will force them to pick sides -- and lose some support.

Republican Party ad hominem character assassination is much easier to identify
