Impeachment Inquiry Update: Whistleblower Spoke to Committee Staff Before The Complaint
As the impeachment inquiry presses forward, the president has continued to lash out against the Democratic Party and the whistleblower who brought the complaint forward.
And we now know a member of the House Intelligence Committee was approached by the whistleblower prior to filing the complaint.
The House Intelligence Committee says the whistleblower tried to raise concerns internally but was unsuccessful.
That’s when the whistleblower reached out to a member of the committee for help.
But the committee says they never had, nor reviewed the complaint before it was submitted.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff says the complaint is accurate and is consistent with the memo of the phone call where President Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden and his son.
He also says it proves wrong doing.
Former U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker is scheduled to testify before lawmakers behind closed doors today.
