The Trump White House on Wednesday released a version of its recollection of the presidents call to the Ukrainian president. Later in the day, the White House shared the whistleblower’s complainant to members of Congress.

Previously resisting calls to release the complaint the White House decided to send the document directly to Congress. Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois said “it reinforces our concerns” and it’s “deeply disturbing” after reviewing the document. While Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska said: “Republicans ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons to say there’s no there when there’s obviously lots that’s very troubling there.”

The administration may allow the whistleblower to speak to congressional committees Despite the complaint being reviewed by members of Congress. It’s still unknown what the complaint contains as it is still classified.

Reports by The Washington Post, New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal found that the complaint included concerns about a phone call President Trump had with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

This is a major news story that keeps developing day by day. Instead of creating a new article the writer of this article Sean Collins has updated the article several times since its original post. I think that it is written well. The author uses several quotes in the article from both sides of the isle. So it seems unbiased even though there is mounting evidence shifting in one way.
