"The Fake Whistleblower complaint is not holding up," President Trump tweeted Monday. "It is mostly about the call to the Ukrainian President which, in the name of transparency, I immediately released to Congress & the public. The Whistleblower knew almost nothing, its 2ND HAND description of the call is a fraud!"

The president's latest salvo on Twitter follows a weekend tweet where he claimed the whistleblower had representing his phone conversation with the Ukranian president in “a totally inaccurate and fraudulent way.”
