Pelosi concerned about Trump's whistleblower 'spy' comments

Pelosi concerned about Trump's whistleblower 'spy' comments”

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the report showed that the Republican president "has been engaged in a cover-up all along".

In a detailed, nine-page complaint, a whistleblower said "senior White House officials" worked to "lock down" all records of a presidential phone call this summer, out of fear that "they had witnessed the president abused his office for personal gain".

Maguire's testimony was not a part of an impeachment listening to per se, nevertheless it centered on the whistleblower sounded the alarm over what he thought of to be egregious conduct on the a part of the president and efforts afterward to hide it. In that call, which the White House is accused of trying to cover up, he asked a foreign government to investigate political rival and former Vice President Joe Biden. Capitol Hill has now got both the memo of the call between Mr. Trump and Mr. Zelensky and the complaint, whose allegations House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff described as "deeply disturbing and very credible".

There are a lot of moving parts to this convoluted scandal and it can be hard to follow, but there are several key documents that can help make sense of it all.

Separately, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told reporters that the whistleblower "has protection under the law", something Trump himself had appeared to question earlier in the day.

The controversy arose after a whistleblower from within the US intelligence community brought a complaint relating to Trump's conversation with Zelenskiy.

"What. Democrats are doing to this country is a disgrace and it shouldn't be allowed". Democrats control the House and its committees.

"Hang in there, Mr. President", one said, and Trump walked into the White House alone, holding a small, gold plaque.

Members of the House and Senate Intelligence committees were allowed to see the complaint on Wednesday, the day before acting USA director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, testifies at a House intelligence panel hearing. "There wasn't anything close in the summary to (merit) putting it in there", he said.

"I don't know who the whistleblower is", acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, the leader of the intelligence community, said Thursday.

The July call occurred days after Mr Trump directed the United States government to withhold about $US391m in military aid to Ukraine.

"The other thing, there's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that, so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great", Trump said, referring to Barr.

The controversy arose after a whistleblower from within the United States intelligence community filed a complaint with an internal watchdog about Mr Trump's conversation with Mr Zelenskiy.

Lawyers say it also doesn't matter for the purposes of being treated as a whistleblower if all of the allegations are borne out as entirely true, or even if political motives or partisanship did factor into the decision to come forward. But this time, the president chose to retreat into the White House alone.

"On top of that, I would kindly ask you if you have any additional information you can provide us, it would be very helpful".
