Trump's alleged 'troubling' promise to foreign leader triggered whistleblower complaint: reportA federal whistleblower complaint regarding an alleged "promise" made by President Donald Trump to a foreign leader has caused a showdown between Congress and the U.S. intelligence community, Wednesday night. According to the Post, Trump made a promise to a foreign leader, reportedly in a phone call this summer, "regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community." It is unclear which foreign leader Trump may have been speaking to, but the Post reported that around the time in question, Trump communicated with the leaders of Russia, North Korea, Pakistan, Qatar and the Netherlands. The intelligence community's inspector general reportedly found the complaint credible and a matter of "urgent concern," a classification which triggers congressional notification. However, the Post reported that acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire has refused to share the complaint with lawmakers. The inspector general, Michael Atkinson, is scheduled to appear before a classified hearing with the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

FOMC cuts fed funds rate, 7 officials project one more by year end WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The Federal Reserve on Wednesday trimmed its benchmark interest rate to 1.75% to 2%, with a sizable minority projecting one more rate reduction in 2019. The central bank has cut rates twice in the past two months as an insurance policy against damage from the U.S. trade war with China. The vote was 7-3. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard preferred a half-point cut. Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren and Kansas City Fed President Esther George dissented for the second meeting in a row, preferring no rate cut. Looking ahead, 10 senior Fed officials projected no more rate cuts this year, but seven viewed one more reduction as likely. Meanwhile, the Fed left its forecast for the economy little changed over the next several years. Notably, the central bank projected no rate changes in 2020 and just one rate hike in both 2021 and 2022.
