WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. intelligence community’s inspector general was correct in deciding a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump was urgent and credible, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement on Friday.

Inspector General Michael Atkinson testified before a closed-door hearing of Schiff’s panel on Friday about the complaint, which is at the centre of a House of Representatives impeachment inquiry of Trump.
