White House tosses NSC attorneys under the bus as they admit Ukraine transcript was moved to secret server

The Trump White House is blaming attorneys for one of the most disturbing charges in a whistleblower accusation.

Roger Stone's trial, which ended in a guilty verdict on all seven counts, raised new questions about whether President Donald Trump perjured himself in written responses to the special counsel's questions, and Democrats may present that evidence and examine Mueller's findings on obstruction of justice, reported Politico.
