Trump whistleblower complaint: DNI to provide Congress with whistleblower complaint today

"I think you read text", the Ukrainian leader said, when asked whether he felt pressured to investigate the Bidens.

Just before the release of the phone call memo, Trump tweeted that he expected an apology from Democrats.

The President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. Also, a spokeswoman for the director said that to her knowledge Maguire had not threatened to quit, according to the Post. "We are hoping very much that Mr. Guiliani will be able to travel to Ukraine and we will meet once he comes to Ukraine", Zelensky said.

Trump also believes that the allegations about him are not almost as damning as they have been portrayed and that disclosing them will undercut the impeachment drive, people close to the president said.

Many Trump administration officials and allies of the President have refused to answer questions before congressional committees.

There has been no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Biden or his son.

Democrats have said the release of the transcript does not answer all their questions or end their inquiry, which was launched Tuesday. Intelligence community lawyers sent a letter to the whistleblower's lawyers on Tuesday, indicating that the office was trying to work out the issues that would allow the whistleblower to speak with Congress.

The implication that Trump may have asked a foreign government to help his re-election campaign by investigating a possible rival pushed members of the US Democratic Party to start an impeachment inquiry against the president.

He said Congress is "entitled" to a full version of the whistleblower complaint at the center of the Ukraine scandal, accusing Trump of putting "his own political interests over our national security interest, which is bolstering Ukraine against Russian pressure".

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on September 24 that the whistleblower's attorney had informed him that his client would like to speak to his committee.

The whistleblower, whose identity is unknown, lodged a formal complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, but the acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, determined that it could not be forwarded to Congress. The House is due to vote on a similar non-binding resolution on Wednesday.
