Trump calls for transparency on whistleblower complaint

U.S. President Donald Trump in New York City on Wednesday said has told House Republicans he supports 'transparency' on whistleblower information, but demands transparency from Democrats as well.

Trump calls for transparency on whistleblower complaint

Members of the U.S. House and Senate intelligence committees will be able to read a copy of the whistleblower complaint later on Wednesday that is at the center of an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, a congressional official said.

Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July telephone call to investigate whether former Vice President Joe Biden shut down an investigation into a company that employed his son, a summary of the call released by the Trump administration on Wednesday showed.

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday announced that the Democratic-led House was moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry and directed six committees to proceed with investigations of the president's actions.

Democrats have accused Trump, who is seeking re-election next year, of soliciting Ukraine's help to smear Biden, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, before the 2020 election.

The call occurred after Trump had ordered the U.S. government to freeze nearly $400 million in American aid to Ukraine.
