    True, but there is no excuse now for the dems not to subpoena her, is there?

    I don't see why this is news.

    To keep confidential the content of any conversations in which he may have participated in his role as an interpreter seems like an obvious duty of that position. I have a difficult time understanding why anyone would think that an interpreter has any right to disclose any such content; especially in this sort of context.

    It's difficult to hide things from your imagination.

    Well remember, the Stalinists want to impeach Trump for having two scoops of ice cream, this is just more of their foaming at the mouth insanity.

    Obama swore his interpreter to silence. Fact.

    Actually, neither Barack Mugabe nor Trump swore anyone to anything, interpreters are subject to the espionage act.
