Trump Whistleblower Report May Show 'Abuse of Power': Supreme Court Lawyer
The Washington Post first reported the complaint on Tuesday. Citing two former U.S. officials with knowledge of the matter, the newspaper said an anonymous intelligence official reported a conversation between the president and a foreign leader that included a troubling "promise."
It is unclear which foreign leader Trump was speaking with or what was being discussed, but Katyal said all signs point to significant wrongdoing by the president. "This is going to be huge," he predicted. "DOJ & Admin are contorting themselves backwards to try to hide this."
The alleged complaint will raise new questions about the president's treatment of the intelligence services and his handling of classified information. On multiple occasions, Trump has shared sensitive information with foreign representatives or the public, potentially undermining ongoing operations and national security.
