Schumer calls for whistleblower complaint to be 'immediately' released

WASHINGTON, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Chuck Schumer, the U.S. Senate's top Democrat, on Wednesday called for the immediate release of a complaint filed by an intelligence official reportedly about a call between President Donald Trump and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

"The public has a right to read the whistleblower's complaint for themselves. The contents of the complaint should be made public immediately," Schumer said in a statement.

Some lawmakers were able to view the complaint on Wednesday, but have been barred from publicly discussing the contents of it. (Reporting by Makini Brice; Editing by Eric Beech)
