The White House on Friday confirmed a key detail in the intelligence whistleblower’s complaint alleging that President Donald Trump abused the power of his office.
A senior administration official acknowledged that the rough transcript of Trump’s July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was moved to a highly classified system maintained by the National Security Council at the direction of attorneys. The motivation and timing of the move remained unclear.
Confirmation of the detail came as Trump stepped up his campaign against the anonymous whistleblower and the unnamed “White House officials” cited in the complaint, drawing a warning from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi against retaliation.
Fresh questions were raised late Thursday about how the White House and the Justice Department handled the whistleblower complaint. The administration initially blocked Congress from viewing it, and only released a redacted version to lawmakers this week after the impeachment inquiry had begun.

Question.. and I feel its on topic.. what would everyone say or do if POTUS just fired everyone.. around him that was near the meeting and things like that and only hired individuals he knows he could trust.. individuals he knows would not talk.. that is were this is all heading and again its not just him it will be every POTUS after him also.

Do you even understand the concept of National Security?
ALL phone conversations the President conducts are
carefully secured, there is nothing new or unusual about this.

Not hidden, just secured because other records have been leaking for 2 and a half years.
It's all legal and thank God somebody is finally securing classified material on a secure system 😎
