Democratic Congressman Anthony Brindisi says he and his fellow lawmakers need more details about the intelligence official’s whistleblower complaint into the President’s call with the Ukrainian President.
North Country Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik says she doesn't think Trump should be impeached based on information she has seen but also wants.
Southern Tier Republican Congressman Tom Reed questioned Speaker Pelosi's decision as it came after the President saying he was going to be releasing today a complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of his phone conversation with the President of Ukraine.
