A whistleblower who filed a complaint about a July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and a Ukraine leader did not have direct knowledge about the communication, according to the Washington Examiner.
An official with knowledge of the matter from a briefing told CNN that the concerns and complaint came from “learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work.”
The complaint said that Trump repeatedly urged Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden’s ties to an energy company along with Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who was also investigating the matter.

Joe Biden has urged House Democrats to look into the complaint.
