White House officials arrange morning calls to help Trump vent offline

The Washington Post reported that the 6:30 a.m. phone calls are "part strategy consultation and part presidential venting session", during which Trump's team goes over the latest developments in the Russian Federation probe and talks through "their plan for battling his avowed enemies", which range from the media to Trump's own Justice Department.

The tactic is apparently an attempt to manage the president's impulsive outbursts, diverting them from the very public platform of Twitter to a more private forum.

One White House adviser interviewed by the Post simply laughed when asked if the morning calls with his outside legal team worked as a strategy to deter him from tweeting.

According to CNN, who first broke the story, the committee will interview Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign chairman, John Podesta, who had thousands of his emails hacked and released during the campaign previous year - which was an embarrassment for the Democratic nominee's campaign that helped Trump beat her last fall.

"As his detractors suffer from this never-ending 'Russia concussion, '" Conway told the Post.
