The U.S. House of Representatives voted 421-0 on Wednesday for a resolution calling on President Donald Trump to release a whistleblower complaint to Congress, despite the administration letting them view the classified document at secure locations in the U.S. Capitol.


Reuters

Unanimous call for the complaint to be released, a day after a 100-0 vote in the Senate.

The administration is "letting them view" the complaint this evening, but this resolution is one step closer to giving the Congress all the paperwork needed to perform their Constitutional duties, outside of what the admin "allows" them to do.


Republicans joined Democrats in backing the release of the document, after many lawmakers argued that Trump’s associates were defying a law calling for whistleblower complaints to be sent to Congress if they are found to be credible.


It's good to see the Republicans coming around and providing unanimous support for transparency.

The complaint was shown to select members of Congress a few hours ago.

Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican from Nebraska, said there are "really troubling things here."

“Republicans ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons to say there’s no there there when there’s obviously lots that’s very troubling there," Sasse, a former Trump critic who was recently endorsed by the president, told reporters. He also chided Democrats "for using words like impeachment."

Very good.

From what I'm hearing from the two sides is that they all agree that they want transparency on this issue.

Were the repubs shown the info BEFORE they voted to release it?

Because in my view that would matter.

If they saw the info said things like that and then all voted to release......not a good look for the potus.

On top of that the senate voted twice to www.cbsnews.com...

Their worried about this.



At the time of the initial vote, Congress did not know which defense projects would be affected. Earlier this month, the Department of Defense released a list of projects potentially impacted and several of the projects are in states Democrats are targeting in their effort to flip the Senate.

I don't think anyone has denied the report that the whistle blower is just passing on second hand info, but still I'd like to see it all unedited and unredacted. If it follows the usual pattern though, it will be full of redactions and released in bits and pieces. Maybe not. Hopefully not.

Enough of these accusations tossed back and forth. Start giving us all the data, unedited on important matters and forget the disingenuous protecting the source or national security crap nobody believes anymore.

Start giving us ALL the info (not just for this) AND let we the people vote on more things.

The vote was taken before the committee members were shown the complaint. The Senate passed a similar resolution yesterday.

It's up to Congress to investigate allegations made in the complaint, not for us to speculate about them.

From your link

Rep. Elise Stefanik, a New York Republican, also called for the document to be made public.

"I do not support impeachment of President Trump,"

Good. If there's anything I know, it's to let politicians do their job and tell me how to think.

God sent them here to do his work and act in a way that's best for us. Always how it has been, always how it will be.

Thank you annoited holy ones. Please send directions for me tomorrow!

Lol.

Is this person even a whistle blower when

1 - they were not there and have no first hand knowledge
2 - someone leaked it to them
3 - they then leaked it via a Clinton/CIA operative

Mueller - Strike 1
Obstruction - Strike 2
Stormy - Strike 3
Trump Jnr Hotel - Strike 4
.. shouldnt they be out by now?

Transparency is a good thing. It's nice to see the House and Senate can unamiously agree on something.

I do not think this is a situation where DoD secrets or proprietary rights are involved and a security clearance protocol is necessary.

The public needs to know.

You can think whatever you wish. You, however, don't have the ability to question witnesses.

I don't have the access.

I do however have the ability to question witnesses once I get the rust off my jumper cables.

Someone tap me in.

Right. While he was sitting right next to the guy who asked "a favor."

No pressure at all.

All of this will have to play out. Right now any comment is merely pandering to various bases. I was a bit young to remember but looking back at the run up to Nixon's resignation he had broad based support from the GOP including Goldwater until it became beyond obvious.

GOP members would do well to circle the wagons at some point but its way to early beyond public posturing at this point.

I think Pelosi was correct in trying very hard NOT to bring this but as circumstances dictated she got forced into a corner.
