CNN is reporting that immediately after the President’s notorious July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky, according to Shimon Prokupecz, “aides to Trump scrambled” to “alert lawyers of their concerns and to contain the damage. Unsettled aides also immediately began quizzing each other about whether they should alert senior officials.”
This is not terribly surprising. It’s basically in line with other reporting. But this tells us something important.
