It is privileged communication. They have every right to hide it. Trump routinely calls newly elected leaders of countries, but it's still a private call.Which was set up for covert operations and intelligence gathering, not for the storage of unclassified phone call transcripts.
They put it on there to hide it.
There is no doubt that he will be asked to testify about his personal interactions and conversations with the president—communications that the Supreme Court has expressly recognized as protected by executive privilege. If the White House decides to object to his testimony on the basis of executive privilege (or to his attendance on the basis of immunity, as described below), it could take one of two actions. It could direct McGahn not to answer questions or, if immunity is the claim, not to attend the hearing. Or it could indicate that there are executive privilege issues the president is still considering and request that McGahn refrain from answering any question that may implicate confidential information until the president has had an opportunity to decide whether to assert privilege.

The whistleblower's contact with Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff's staff before filing the complaint in mid-August has prompted renewed scrutiny of Schiff.
I believe Adam Schiff will have to step aside because of his strange involvement and lying IG could not explain 18-day window between Ukraine call and whistleblower complaint: sources
It is not classified. They did not discuss national secrets on that call.It is privileged communication.
Not on a classified server.They have every right to hide it.
Leaks are their own problem to solve, namely by locating and removing the leakers.True, but after calls to the President of Mexico and others were leaked, this was the response. Putting these memos in a more secure location.
