Mnuchin on the Whistleblower Scandal: ‘This Is a Terrible Precedent’

‘Conversations between world leaders are meant to be confidential’

EXCERPT:

MNUCHIN: "I think that would be a terrible precedent. Conversations between world leaders are meant to be confidential and if every time someone for political reasons raised a question and all of a sudden those conversations were disclosed publicly, and when you disclose them to Congress, lots of times they leak into the press, then why would world leaders want to have conversations together? So the real issue here is this was an important week. It was a very important week. What went on with Iran, the maximum pressure campaign. This is a conversation between two world leaders with plenty of other people who were on the call."
