President Donald Trump’s White House counsel has reportedly been personally involved in keeping Congress from reviewing a whistleblowing report involving Ukraine.

“The revelation that Trump pushed Zelensky to pursue the Biden probe, which was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, represents the most detailed account so far of the president’s conduct that prompted a U.S. intelligence official to file a whistleblower action against the president,” The Washington Post reported Friday. “The disclosure comes amid new details about the White House’s role in preventing Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire from complying with Congressional demands for the material in the complaint.”

In addition to confirming the WSJ report, The Post also furthered the story with new reporting on the role of the White House in the scandal.

President Donald Trump attacked America's Kurdish allies during a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella.

Trump repeatedly said the Kurds were "no angels" in his comments.

"The PKK, which is a part of the Kurds, as you know, is probably, worse at terror and more of a terrorist threat in my ways than ISIS.

"So it's a very, semi-complicated -- not too complicated if you're smart -- but it's a semi-complicated problem," Trump said. "I think it is a problem that we have very nicely under control."
