(Newser) – Two sources tell CNN that the White House is preparing to release the whistleblower complaint regarding President Trump's controversial phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Congress. The complaint could be released as early as Wednesday, within hours of the planned release of the transcript of the phone call, the sources say. Earlier Tuesday, the Senate voted unanimously that the complaint should be given to Congress, according to a tweet from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. "BIG: The Senate by unanimous consent passed my resolution calling for the whistleblower complaint to be provided to Congress as required by law," he said. "That means every GOP Senator supports the whistleblower report being immediately provided to the Senate and House Intel Committees."
