As the fervor over President Trump’s alleged “promise” to Ukrainian leadership continues to simmer on Capitol Hill, the White House may be looking to get out in front of a formal set of proceedings.
For days now, the left has been fully enraged, ready to once again beat the drum of impeachment via the mainstream media. At the heart of the issue is a phone call between President Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky in which the President allegedly held US aid to the European nation hostage in return for an investigation into the Biden family’s dealings in the region.
This is all still all hearsay, as the whistleblower complaint has yet to be made public or even available to Congress.
In anticipation of the left’s outrage, the President has said that he will release a transcript of the phone call in question on Wednesday.
President Donald Trump, facing growing calls by Democrats for his impeachment, said he has authorized the release on Wednesday of a complete transcript of a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Reports on that call — during which Trump talked about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter — have led an increasing number of House Democrats to demand impeachment proceedings against Trump because of suspicions the president tried to boost his chances of re-election by pressuring another country to probe a leading Democratic challenger.
Predictably, this doesn’t satisfy the hunger for impeachment still held by the democrats, who are now insisting on hearing testimony from the whistleblower themselves.
House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff announced Tuesday that the whistleblower who filed a mysterious complaint, which includes allegations about President Donald Trump’s conduct, would like to speak to the committee.
The whistleblower has requested guidance from acting DNI Joseph Maguire on how to do so, Schiff said.
“We have been informed by the whistleblower’s counsel that their client would like to speak to our committee and has requested guidance from the Acting DNI as to how to do so,” Schiff tweeted.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may very well be announcing impeachment proceedings against the President as early as 5pm on Tuesday afternoon.
