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.
