The Donald Trump's administration came into conflict with Congress over access to a complaint from an intelligence informant regarding a private conversation between the US president and a foreign leader. It is reported by the Associated press.

The State Intelligence Agency informs that the complaint is “serious” and “urgent”.

The White House does not even let Congress know what the informant is referring to. The intelligence community's general inspector says this issue is linked to the "most significant" responsibilities of intelligence. One report said that this is linked with a promise that Trump had made to the foreign leader. The lawmaker said the complaint was "based on a series of events."

The Inspector General appeared before the Congress Intelligence Committee behind closed doors on Thursday, but by order of the administration refused to disclose the gist of the complaint.

As reported by The Washington Post, a U.S. intelligence informant filed a complaint regarding President Donald Trump’s communication with Ukrainian leader Zelensky.

The complaint involved communications with a foreign leader and a “promise” that Trump made, which was so alarming that a U.S. intelligence official who had worked at the White House went to the inspector general of the intelligence community, two former U.S. officials said.

Two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed, Trump spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian and political newcomer who was elected in a landslide in May.

That call is already under investigation by House Democrats who are examining whether Trump and his attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani sought to manipulate the Ukrainian government into helping Trump’s reelection campaign. Lawmakers have demanded a full transcript and a list of participants on the call.

The representative of the White House declined to comment.
