Another official considering filing whistleblower complaint - NYT

As President Donald Trump deals with a whistleblower complaint over his Ukraine call, a second intelligence official is considering whether to file his own formal complaint, according to the New York Times… The official - who has more direct information about Trump's dealings with Ukraine than the first whistleblower - is among those people interviewed by intelligence inspector general Michael Atkinson, who testified before a closed-door session of the House Intelligence Committee last Friday… (SOUNDBITE) U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO SAYING: This is what's wrong when the world doesn't focus on the things that are right/you get caught up in some silly gotcha game." The news about a possible second whistleblower comes as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday in Greece said that his department issued an initial response to a Congressional request for documents as part of the impeachment inquiry after he reportedly failed to meet the deadline to produce documents required by the subpoena… ""The State Department sent a letter last night to Congress, which is our initial response to the document request.

We will obviously do all the things we are required to by law..

Pompeo last week confirmed he listened to the July 15th call between Trump and the Ukraine president (upsound pelosi) House Democrats are examining whether there are grounds to impeach Trump based on a whistleblower's complaint that said the president asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to help investigate former Vice President and 2020 Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and his son.

Lawmakers are looking at whether Trump jeopardized national security and the integrity of U.S. elections for personal political gain.

House Democrats on Friday subpoenaed the White House for documents they want to see as part of their impeachment investigation.

Trump has called the impeachment investigation a "hoax" and accused the media and Democrats of corruption.

According to a source, White House lawyers believe Trump can ignore lawmakers' requests until U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds a full House vote to formally approve an impeachment inquiry.
