The Daily Beast reports:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on the July 25 call between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart that was the subject of a bombshell whistleblower complaint, The Wall Street Journal reports. The newspaper reports that Pompeo was one of the administration officials who listened in on the call, according to a senior State Department official. In the complaint, a whistleblower said top State Department official Ulrich Brechbuhl was on the call—a claim a State Department official has reportedly disputed.
The original report is behind the WSJ’s paywall.
