The basis for the impeachment process against US President Donald Trump is a confidential complaint claiming that he requested intervention from another country to influence next year’s election in the US. The complainant stated that the White House attempted to obstruct it to conceal this information. The nine-page document was released on Thursday.

The White House on Wednesday released an unrefined copy of that phone call. The complainant said, “During the days following the phone call, I came to know from several US officials that senior officials of the White House had changed all the records of the phone call, especially the exact copy of the call which was issued by the White House Gone.’

The complainant said that those officers told Wiselbloer, “This is not the first time that under this administration, the copy of the President related copy has been put in a code-language system whose sole purpose is not to provide sensitive information for national security but to politically sensitive information.” Was patronage.

Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi announced the initiation of the official impeachment process against Trump. The White House said in a statement released on Thursday, “Nothing has changed with the release of this complaint, which is nothing but an indirect collection of events and intertwining press clippings, nothing in all seems to be inappropriate.” is.’
Most members of the Republican Party, who looked into the complaint, remained calm on Wednesday or appeared to defend the president. However, a Republican said that what he had read concerned him.
