Republicans specifically questioned why the whistleblower’s sources in the White House didn’t file a complaint themselves — especially since the relevant whistleblower procedures do not protect second-hand complaints.


Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that the administration had an apparent “leak problem,” adding, “if they’re leaking something that’s supposed to be classified, then … that probably is criminal in nature.”

It cited information from White House officials who alleged there’d been efforts to hide Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, among other conversations. The Trump administration reportedly began placing transcripts of Trump’s calls with several foreign leaders in a highly classified repository after leakers publicly divulged the contents of Trump’s private calls with the leaders of Mexico and Australia in 2017.
