image for Donald Trump Whistleblower Complaint: Likely Evidence of 'Gross Abuse of Power' Claims Supreme Court Lawyer—'Truth Will Come Out'

A Supreme Court lawyer has predicted that the reported whistleblower complaint made in response to President Donald Trump's discussions with an unnamed foreign leader will likely produce evidence of "gross" abuse of power.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman and California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff said in a statement Wednesday that the Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson deemed the complaint "both credible and urgent.".

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.

There are probably tapes and transcripts documenting a gross abuse of power by Trump.

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.

Critics said the image could be used by adversaries to identify America's closely-guarded surveillance capabilities. »
