Republican Congressman Will Hurd broke the party on Thursday and called the whistleblower complaint about Donald Trump concerning & # 39; even if one of the president's most loyal allies called it a & # 39; spectacle & # 39; called.
& # 39; There is a lot in the whistleblower complaint. We must fully investigate all the allegations in the letter and the first step is to talk to the whistleblower: & Hurd, who is not looking for a re-election next year, tweeted Thursday morning.
Hurd is on the House Intelligence Committee, who on Thursday morning heard from acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire about the whistleblower's bombing that led to an informal accusation procedure against Trump.

Rep. David Nunes, one of the president's greatest allies on Capitol Hill, struck the decision of the Democrats to pursue deposition as a & # 39; grotesque spectacle & # 39; against
He is the first Republican in the panel to make such a statement.
Meanwhile, Republican congressman David Nunes, one of the president's greatest allies on Capitol Hill, countered the Democrats' decision to pursue charges.
& # 39; This latest gambling action by the Democrats to reverse the people's mandate is unleashed and dangerous. They have to end the whole unfair, grotesque spectacle and solve problems again, & # 39; Nunes said during the hearing.
Republican support is crucial for Trump as the deposition process progresses on Capitol Hill.
While Democrats have the votes in the House to invoke accusation articles if they ensure that a movement is completed after their investigation, Republicans control the Senate, where the president is on trial.
In addition, the president needs the vocal and moral support of his party if he makes a plea to voters to re-elect him in 2020.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday the formal investigation into the President's actions regarding a telephone conversation with newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where Trump asked about an investigation into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.
The investigation into accusation was fueled by a complaint from an unknown whistleblower.
The House Intelligence Committee published the bombing on Thursday.
The seven-page & # 39; s document was released overnight after the legislators had reviewed it, hours after the transcript of the call between Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was published, was published by the Ministry of Justice .
It includes a series of allegations at Donald Trump and the White House, including:
- Trump & # 39; uses the power of his office to request interference from a foreign country in the US 2020 elections & # 39 ;;
- His personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani is accused of being & # 39; a central figure & # 39; and the Advocate General Bill Barr & # 39; seems to be involved too & # 39 ;;
- The call between Trump and Zelensky saw the president try & # 39; promote his personal interests & # 39 ;;
- White House lawyers feared that the officials who listened to the call witnessed the president who abused his office for personal gain.
- White House lawyers tried to & # 39; lock & # 39; by restricting the distribution of the official transcript and placing it in a secret computer system that is usually used without reason for & # 39; secret actions & # 39 ;;
- A White House official & # 39; described the act as abuse & # 39 ;, said the whistleblower;
- Other & # 39; politically sensitive – instead of national security sensitive & # 39; calls between Trump and foreign leaders have been treated in the same way;
- There are more notes of the call – not just the transcript that was published Wednesday;
- That & # 39; multiple US officials & # 39; expressed concern about Rudy Giuliani who was involved in Ukraine;
- That Advocate General William Barr & # 39; also seems to be involved. & # 39;
The letter does not reveal the whistleblower's identity, but makes it clear that they are a senior figure – they reveal that they are a & # 39; readout & # 39; received the call.
The White House released the full, unprocessed transcript of July 25 between the Trump and Zelensky Wednesday morning.
Trump said Wednesday that the transcript showed it was a & # 39; nothing call & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; As you had built that call, it would be the call from hell. It turned out to be nothing but many people said, "I never knew you could be so nice," he said.
The president also denied that he would put pressure on Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.
The transcript shows that Trump named Joe Biden by name and asked the Zelensky to talk to Attorney General William Barr and the president's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, about Biden and his son.
& # 39; There is much talk about Biden's son that Biden has stopped the persecution and many people want to know about it, so anything you can do with the Attorney General would be great & # 39 ;, Trump says , according to the transcript.
& # 39; Biden started bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look at it … it sounds terrible to me, & # 39; the president said to Zelensky.
