But anyway... when ever I talk with my palls, I make sure my other palls don't know about it. I'm sure the congress will agree with me and trump and everyone else who has grand plans with secrecy.

Diplomacy will be negatively impacted if the confidentiality of conversations with the President is threatened.

Ya know, you won't get sucked into the vacuum of space should you NOT toe the line at every turn for Trump.

That makes no sense. Russian officials know what was said in those secret meetings, but only Trump from the US knows.

You think there is a threat if anyone but Trump knows?

It makes perfect sense. What is the sense of a private conversation if the other world leader doesn't have confidence their conversation will remain confidential? This would negatively impact diplomacy. Nobody wants that.

Perhaps if you realize I'm not specifically talking about our current POTUS, but speaking generally, you'd realize the point I'm making?

Maybe we are saying the same thing? Im not saying the "public" should know, but more than just the president - especially one that has an active investigation into his campaign. More adults on your side need to know what is said. Are you advocating for a dictator? Sounds a bit like that.

Tillerson was in the meeting, the headlines just want you to think only the president knows.

Let's continue the conversation.

First, I'm assuming your concept includes some mandate to demand the albeit-confidential review by at least one other set of eyes.

The most significant angle in this is the Constitutionality of such a concept.

I believe the Constitution demands this "reviewer" (for lack of a better term) to be contained in the Executive Branch. Otherwise separation of power would disallow it. If this reviewer is contained in the Executive branch, then the President is necessarily in charge of him/her.

Alan Dershowitz is known as someone who has pointed out this same "flaw" in our system that places the DoJ under the explicit control of the Executive. Apparently other countries... I think he mentions Australia... provide more independence to their DoJ equivalents.
