U.S Acting Director of National Intelligence, Joseph Maguire has testified before the House Intelligence Committee about the whistleblower complaint concerning President Donald Trump’s urging of Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden.
The Democratic-led House of Representatives has launched a formal impeachment inquiry of Trump over the Ukraine matter.
After initially resisting demands by Democrats in Congress to see the whistleblower complaint, the Trump administration relented and allowed members of the House of Representatives and Senate Intelligence committees view it on Wednesday.
In July President Trump had pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to launch a probe of Mr Biden and his son, who worked for a Ukrainian gas company.
The phone call occurred after Mr Trump ordered a freeze of nearly four hundred million dollars aid to Ukraine.
