2. He has the same phone I do, at least in the Oval Office.

It's a Cisco CP-8811, or a model awfully close to it.



The phone uses VoIP technology. The phone it replaced plugged into a phone jack, but this one is connected to my laptop computer. It generates so much trash that I'm lucky to get WTOP (an FM station, at 103.5 MHz) in my cubicle. The RF trash this thing generates is off the wall. I don't the FCC has cared about AM or shortwave interference in a long, long time.

The phone was probably chosen for the Oval Office on the grounds that it would render useless any Russian-placed listening device.

Hint: "mute" is the button in the lower right hand corner.
