Senate Democratic Leader Calls on Republicans to Subpoena Trump Whistleblower Complaint

U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday called on Senate Republicans to issue a subpoena for a whistleblower complaint from an unidentified U.S. government official and demand a transcript of President Donald Trump’s July 25 call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

“It is the Senate’s duty – duty – to take this national security matter seriously and investigate now. Senate Republicans have the sole power and the overwhelming responsibility to see that it does,” Schumer said in remarks on the Senate floor.

The New York Democrat also called on Republican committee chairs to hold hearings and seek testimony from Trump administration officials including Acting U.S. Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

He also said the Republican-controlled Senate should determine which administration officials directed security assistance for Ukraine to be delayed.

Schumer said he made his request for a Senate investigation in a letter to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.

  1. More of the Democrat Inquisition. These pitiful sore loser Democrats have no decency. They can’t win, so they resort to constant investigation at the cost of $ millions to the taxpayer. It would be worth it if Democrats would wake up and see that these power seekers have concern only for themselves and could care less about America. Pitiful little children unhappy that they can’t rule the sandbox. Too bad, so sad.

  2. To sum up the Ukraine matter, Der Donald is withholding foreign aid money to Ukraine, to pressure Ukraine to investigate Biden’s son., in what amounts to trying to smear a political opponent in next year’s election. And Republicans objected to the DNC using private funds to pay for the Steele dossier? One standard for Republicans, another for Democrats?

    1. You’re a liar. You make up stories to suit your position. You just don’t like Democrat corruption to be exposed one Congress man/woman after another.

  3. are you going after joe and his boss at the time b.o. maybe they should start there and see waar it goes. just like the russian collusion investigation.

  4. will this bs ever stop. Seriously how can these 2 be impeached or fired. They have wasted enough of out tax money we Americans have paid for fixing our country not to destroy.

  5. What a sad looking trio. Schumer’s on another futility trip. Subpoenas, investigation and testimony give him purpose. Unfortunately it comes up worthless and an expense for the taxpayers.

  6. More D-RAT bullPelosi. Russia Russia Russia nothingness all over again. D-RATs have a penchant for blaming Trump for the exact things they are guilty of—-pathetic phonies those dastardly untrustworthy D-RATs

    Try and keep up. Would hate for you to miss something important. Jump in and help out when you can.

    1. Glad we can inspire your comments, however irrelevant and lackluster.

  8. Well, in the interest of JUSTICE and fairness, the Republican’ts should subpoena the records and bank statements of the Dueling Bidens regarding Ukraine and China. They should do the same for Joe’s conversations while vice president.

  9. What will the DemocRATs do if the whistle blower tells the TRUTH; or, if Trump releases the transcriptions of his conversation; or, if/when the Ukrainian prosecutor speaks up about BOTH Joe and Hunter Biden’s roll to shut down a legitimate investigation to protect BOTH Bidens? Get your lies straight, Joe. You’re in it up past your teeth!

  10. More smoke and mirrors from the Party of Science™. Either the Congressional Dims, with VIDEO evidence, will investigate THIS instance of collusion and corruption by their front-runner or they are hypocritical liars. I’m betting the latter. To bad the ChiComs won’t present any evidence, but there are ALWAYS bank records. Remember Deutsche Bank?

    The “blower” admitted to NOT hearing anything substantial and you people have cried wolf to many times.
