The whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump and the White House was made public today, providing a detailed picture of concerns from some U.S. officials about his requests for political favors from the Ukrainian president and the steps that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, allegedly took towards that goal. The reveal came shortly before the testimony of acting Director of National Intelligence before the House Intelligence Committee, during which he defended his decision to bring the complaint to the White House and Department of Justice before Congress.

Jim Braude was joined by Bruce Singal, a defense attorney who worked along with Mueller in the U.S. Attorney's office in Boston, now partner at Barrett & Singal, and Kevin Martin, a partner at Goodwin Procter who once clerked for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
