Congressional lawmakers are now being afforded the opportunity to review a key piece of evidence regarding a whistleblower complaint against President Trump in a secure room deep in the DC Swamp.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was forced just yesterday to acquiesce to her progressive underlings, opening up what the left is calling a “formal impeachment inquiry” into President Trump’s actions. This maneuver comes despite months of House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler insisting that the democrats have already been attempting just such a probe, leaving many to wonder why this should be any different.
In the name of transparency, the President has released not only a memorandum regarding the phone call mentioned in the whistleblower’s complaint, but also the complaint itself, albeit only to Congress and in confidentiality so far.
Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Sen. Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) will now review the confidential tip, though it’s not immediately clear how extensively the version they received is redacted.take our poll - story continues below
The complaint had been in the hands of Joseph Maguire, the acting director of National Intelligence, who is set to testify Thursday on Capitol Hill.
The whistleblower, a US intelligence official, came forward last week to express concerns over a July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which, it’s claimed, Trump offered a quid pro quo.
Reactions to the document will likely be streaming into the mainstream media over the course of the next few hours, and will be crucial in determining whether or not Nancy Pelosi and the democrats can somehow muster the support necessary to move forward in their long-stewing plans for impeachment.
