The Senate Intelligence Committee is trying to learn more about the whistleblower complaint, which is creating controversy in Washington, D.C. On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the committee is trying to set up a meeting with the Intelligence community’s Inspector Deneral and acting Director of National Intelligence.
Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are seeking answers on what that whistleblower complaint alleges. McConnell is now accusing Democrats of politicizing the matter without knowing all the facts.

“I’ve been disappointed to see our colleague, a Democratic leader, choose to politicize the committee’s ongoing efforts with respect to a recent whistleblower allegation,the specific subject of which is still unknown,” stated McConnell.
Last week, the Inspector General met with House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, but he refused to provide details about he whistleblower complaint. It’s unclear if the inspector general will provide more information to the Senate committee.
