Democrats who have assessed the secret whistleblower complaint have the & # 39; deeply disturbing & # 39; and said it gives them new directions to pursue as an accusation.

The complaint comes from a whistleblower of the intelligence committee and was made available on Wednesday to members of the intelligence committees of the Lower House and the Senate.

The complaint is at least partially related to a telephone conversation in July between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in which Trump urged Zelenskiy to investigate democratic political rival Joe Biden. The White House published a rough transcript of that call on Wednesday morning.

House democrats coming from a secure room would not disclose the details of the complaint, but describe it as disturbing and urgent.

The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Said it has uncovered & # 39; serious abuses & # 39; and & # 39; certainly provides the committee with information to follow up with others & # 39 ;.

California Rep. Eric Swalwell told CNN that the whistleblower has imposed many other documents and witnesses that were the subject of this issue & # 39 ;.

The complaint showed that the whistleblower had heard details of the White House officials' call, according to a person familiar with the complaint and given anonymity to discuss it.

Another person said that the legislators did not learn the whistleblower's identity.

A Democratic member of the panel, Illinois Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, said the whistleblower & # 39; explains the situation very logically & # 39; and & # 39; recognizes both the things he or she knows and don't know, which is a characteristic of a credible document. & # 39;

House speaker Nancy Pelosi – who fully approved an allegation investigation Tuesday in light of the revelations in Ukraine – and Senator Democratic leader Chuck Schumer also reviewed the complaint. Schumer said he is now worrying & # 39; more & # 39; then before he read it and & # 39; there are many facts that call for research & # 39;

Most Republicans were silent or defended the president on leaving the secure rooms. But at least one Republican said he was worried about what he had read.

& # 39; Republicans should not hurry to circle the cars and say that there are no & # 39; there is & # 39; while there is clearly much that there is very disturbing, & # 39; said Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a GOP member of the intelligence panel of the Senate critic of Trump. He added that & # 39; Democrats don't have words like & # 39; should use impeach & # 39; before they knew anything about the actual content. & # 39;

Trump, whose administration had previously rejected the complaint, said Wednesday afternoon that I fully support transparency on the so-called whistleblower information & # 39; and that he had communicated that position to leader of the minority leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

The rough transcript released by the White House on Wednesday showed that Trump urged Zelenskiy to collaborate with US Attorney General and Trump & # 39; s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to investigate democratic political rival Joe Biden.

Lawmakers said they should see the complaint, not just the memo about the call, because they are investigating the president and whether his actions were inappropriate. Pelosi said Tuesday that if Trump abused his presidential powers, this would be a betrayal of his oath of office & # 39; would mean.

New York representative Elise Stefanik, member of the GOP panel, tweeted that & # 39; it should be released immediately and made public to the American people & # 39 ;.

New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a member of Democratic leadership, agreed and said he expects the & # 39; rather than later & # 39; will be made public.

The committees of the House and the Senate have also invited the whistleblower to testify, but it is uncertain whether the person will appear and whether his or her identity can be sufficiently protected without Maguire's blessing. Schiff said Wednesday morning that Maguire had still not given instructions on how that could happen.

The unknown whistleblower filed a complaint in August with Michael Atkinson, the US government inspector general.

Maguire then blocked the release of the complaint to Congress, citing presidential privilege issues and said the complaint did not require & # 39; urgent concern & # 39; treated. Atkinson disagreed, but said his hands were tied.

Maguire testifies publicly before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday and privately before the Senate Panel. Atkinson, who met the legislators of the House in private last week, will also talk privately with the Senate Committee on Thursday.
