The President's interactions with Zelensky are the subject of a whistleblower complaint that has surfaced within the intelligence community. While a phone call on July 25 has attracted considerable attention, the complaint could include more information and links to the chairperson's discussions.
Many Democratic lawmakers have speculated that Trump has delayed a multi-million dollar military aid to Ukraine as part of an attempt to persuade the country to investigate a political opponent. Trump admitted that he had talked to Zelensky about Joe Biden, but refused to seek military assistance.
Acting Director of the National Intelligence Service, Joseph Maguire, has denied Congress access to the content of the complaint. He said in a statement on Tuesday evening that he would treat the complaint "appropriately".
Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) Announced early Tuesday that the whistleblower's lawyer had shown interest in talking to the panel.
"We are in contact with the lawyer and look forward to the whistleblower's testimony as soon as this week," he said.
