Pelosi says withholding of whistleblower complaint violates law

WASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that the acting director of national intelligence was breaking the law with his decision to withhold from Congress a whistleblower complaint reported to address communications between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader.

"If the President has done what has been alleged, then he is stepping into a dangerous minefield with serious repercussions for his administration and our democracy," Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, said in a statement.

"The president and acting DNI's stonewalling must end immediately," she said. (Reporting by Tim Ahmann)
