Feinstein Statement on Whistleblower Complaint

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement on the intelligence community whistleblower complaint:

“I find the whistleblower complaint to be highly credible. It suggests that the president used his office to demand political favors from a foreign country and that White House personnel knew this was wrong and tried to cover it up by burying details of the call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.

“The complaint also suggests that an ‘official word-for-word transcript of the call’ was produced; if so, it should be provided to Congress for review. Congress has a constitutional oversight duty. It’s important that we understand who took actions to hide details of the call with Zelensky and how high those actions reached.”
