White House lawyer John Eisenberg—the administration's legal adviser on national security issues—deeper into the mire.

I am currently looking for a link. It looks like the White House Council is pointing fingers where it lands nobody knows.

Interesting note, John Eisenburg worked at the same law firm as Attorney General Bill Barr, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone.

A law firm full of criminal lawyers, I mean a lawfirm full of criminals that are lawyers.

Eisenberg has come under scrutiny for his role in moving a transcript of the July 25 call to a highly classified server, a step other officials have described as at odds with standard White House protocol.

In his testimony Tuesday, Vindman said he believed the transcript was transferred to that server intentionally. Vindman talked to Eisenburg twice and was told not to talk to anybody else about the phone call.
Former National Security Council official Tim Morrison, said in a closed-door deposition that the transcript had been mistakenly moved to the classified system.

Eisenburgs' defenders have asserted Eisenberg did nothing improper in securing the rough transcript, a move that would help eliminate any leaks of its contents.

Morrison, testified that he wanted access to the transcript to be restricted. But, he said, “it was represented to me that it was a mistake” for the transcript to be placed on the highly classified server.

Morrison said Eisenberg inquired about how the transcript was placed on the classified system and learned it was an “administrative error.”

So which is it? Vindman believed it was placed in a secret server on purpose when he last spoke with Eisenberg. Morrison was told it had been placed in a secret server by accident. Sources agree Eisenberg was concerned about it leaking but who actually put it in the secret server intentionally or not has not been revealed.
Einsenberg has refused to testify.

According to The New York Times, the lawyers' review centers around why White House counsel John Eisenberg placed the Ukraine call transcript in a highly secure computer system. Trump's actions during the call, and the White House's apparent effort to limit access to the call transcript, are the subject of a whistleblower complaint that has prompted an impeachment inquiry into Trump. Eisenberg has reportedly said that he limited access to the call transcript over concerns of leaks, and declined to comment about the matter. It's reportedly not clear who started the review, but acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is said to have encouraged it, and his aides are cooperating with the White House Counsel’s Office on the matter.

You do know that the transcript was placed there because people keep leaking these calls, right? In your opinion, what was the right thing to do? Just place every conversation with foreign leaders on Skype and invite the entire planet to listen in?

who's investigating eisenburg, as in officially?
Believe it or not it should be Horowitz. The same guy that has the report coming out soon on the FISA warrants and how the Russia investigation started. He would be the logical guy to figure out who inside the Justice Department put the summary memo inside the secret server and if any of the actual officials including Eisenburg, the Acting Deputy of National Intelligence or even Bill Barr had attempted to obstruct justice. Right now it looks like a circular firing squad. Im sure Bill Barr will come out clean even though he appears to have his thumb in the pie.

Really? Is the Trump Administration so incompetent that it can't keep a simple conversation secret? Hillarys' emails weren't secure according to the Republicans and that rose to criminal behaviour according to accusations but all investigations confirm nothing she had come to her or transmitted to her rose to SENSITIVE AND TOP SECRET.
You do realize that the Summary email of Trump and Zelensky conversation does not indicate any information that is SENSITIVE AND TOP SECRET. The Server IS NOT TO BE USED FOR POLITICALLY EMBARRASSING CONVERSATIONS or to hide INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE that's why they are now saying it was put there in error. They can't claim that the conversation was SENSITIVE AND TOP SECRET and they have already said the conversation was PERFECT so what's the real reason?
There is going to be a scape goat on this one, the question is who is it going to be? One thing for sure Mulvaney's' office has said it is willing to co-operate fully. Hmmm....
