The informant who warned about President Donald Trump's negotiations with Ukraine is willing to answer written questions asked by Republicans in the lower house, his lawyer said.
Attorney Mark Zaid tweeted that his team made the offer to Rep. Devin Nunes, a senior Republican in the House of Representatives Espionage Commission.
Zaid said the informant would answer questions directly from Republican lawmakers "in writing, under oath and penalty of perjury." Generally, questions would be asked through the Democratic majority of the commission.RELATED
The offer now arises that President Donald Trump has demanded the disclosure of the identity of the informant who expressed alarm at the telephone conversation Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on July 25. The call was the catalyst for the political trial investigation led by Democrats.
In the call, Trump pressured Zelenskiy to investigate his political rivals.
