Whistleblower raised alarm over White House handling of Ukraine call records: report

The whistleblower complaint about President Trump’s call with Ukraine raises concerns over how the White House handled records of the conversation with the foreign leader, The New York Times reported Wednesday, citing two people briefed on the complaint. 

The whistleblower identified multiple White House officials as witnesses to Trump’s alleged misconduct who could corroborate the complaint, according to the people who spoke to the Times. 

A White House spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


The confidential complaint, which spurred a House impeachment inquiry, was delivered to Congress Wednesday, and many lawmakers have called for it to be made public.
