    Axios: Democrats 'disturbed' after reviewing whistleblower complaint

    Alayna Treene, Stef W. Kight, Zachary Basuupdated 2 hours ago
    In the call, President Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to speak with Rudy Giuliani ó who works for Trump, not the U.S. government ó and Attorney General Bill Barr.

    Sometime in August, the director of national intelligence referred a whistleblower complaint involving a conversation between Trump and Zelensky to the Justice Department to investigate as a possible campaign finance violation.

    Between the lines: Media reports last week said a whistleblower came forward in alarm after a "promise" was made on a phone call between Trump and a world leader, the WashPost first reported.

    What they're saying:

    Go deeper: Read the memo

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told reporters Wednesday after reviewing the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower complaint behind closed doors that the materials he viewed "exposed serious wrongdoing" and provided the committee with information to follow up on.

    The big picture: The Democratic members who were willing to speak to reporters after leaving the room expressed alarm at the contents of the complaint. Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) called the complaint "troubling and disturbing," while Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) said that the materials he read "only corroborate the concerns that this is credible and urgent."

    What they're saying: Schiff added that "the idea that the Department of Justice would have intervened to prevent it from getting to Congress, throws the leadership of the department into further ill repute."

    Both Swalwell and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), a loyal defender of President Trump, called on the whistleblower to testify.
    Ratcliffe said he didn't think the report was that damaging, and that the information in it doesn't justify impeachment. He did say the report provided information that went beyond the transcript.

    Ratcliffe also said lawmakers don't know who the whistleblower is. Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) did not comment to reporters.

    Sen. Ben Sasse called out Democrats for rushing to use the word "impeach," but added: "Republicans ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons to say thereís no there there when thereís obviously lots thatís very troubling there."
    Rep. Joaquin Castro described the whistleblower report as "bigger than I thought."

    Worth noting: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was seen entering the restricted area where the report is being reviewed. She told reporters that she couldn't discuss the whistleblower complaint in detail because it had been "retroactively classified" by the Trump administration.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who as a member of the Gang of 8 was also permitted to view the complaint, said: ďIím even more worried about what happened than when I read the memorandum of the conversation. There are so many facts that have to be examined. Itís very troubling."

    What to watch: Swalwell told reporters the committee did not receive the full inspector general report that accompanies the whistleblower complaint, but said the whistleblower "invokes other witnesses to the disturbing conduct." Acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire is expected to testify before the House Intelligence Committee in open session on Thursday.

    Seems like some republicans are concerned after reading the whistleblower report. Could be feigned outrage. We will see.

    I wonít believe it until I actually see votes cast, but the fact that itís now even 0.001% possible that some Republicans might see this as indefensible considering everything theyíve permitted up to this point astounds me. It has to be some serious shit in the whistleblower complaint.

    Sasse bothsides-ed by criticizing Dems for using the "i" word.

    Romney is Romney.

    I'm not sure there is really any movement here other than the usual BS.

    We really need to find out what Susan Collins thinks.

    Meh. Guys like Sasse and Romney have been perpetually concerned without doing anything about it. Until one of those whores actually comes out and advocates for impeachment, I don't buy any of their posturing

    She is concerned.

    Forever concerned. This is a political disaster pending for either side that handles this poorly. If the whistleblower complaint is actually damning thatís tough sledding for a party that tethered themselves to a moron.

    I wonder what Trump will do if he actually gets impeached
