Trump impeachment: Second whistleblower emerges in the Ukraine scandal
A second whistleblower has come forward in the impeachment case against US President Donald Trump.
According to lawyers representing the first one, Mark Zaid told ABC News the second person was also an intelligence official and they had spoken to the inspector general. Late on Sunday night, Trump lashed out at Democratic leaders, suggesting they should be impeached.
No details have been released about the second whistleblower’s claims. However, Mark Zaid said the person had first-hand knowledge of allegations associated with the phone call President Trump made with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25th. The impeachment inquiry stems from the call, which was flagged up by the initial whistleblower in August.
