The House Committees on Foreign Affairs, Oversight, and Intelligence announced they would investigate the allegations and the possibility that they have something to do with the recent whistleblower complaint asserting Trump made unlawful promises to multiple world leaders.
Zelensky will have a working visit with Trump in NY where he will also have bilateral meetings with foreign state leaders.
Now we're learning that the complaint likely involves Ukraine. The source emphasized Ukraine was just "part" of the complaint, suggesting that it included more than one element/allegation.
Michael Atkinson, the inspector general of the U.S. intelligence community, ruled that the whistleblower's complaint was of "urgent" concern - meaning it would normally be shared with the relevant oversight committees in Congress.
Over the past week, the secret whistleblower complaint has spilled into public view and prompted a standoff between the House Intelligence Committee and acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire, who has refused to turn over the complaint to the panel.

After press reports that Trump pressured Ukraine to try to seek such an investigation, the official said the president is seeking "revenge" for his former campaign chair Paul Manafort, whose work on behalf of a pro-Moscow political party led to his prosecution and jailing.
Volodymyr Zelensky had absolutely no political experience when he became Ukraine's president after an April election he won in a landslide.
Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, contradicted himself when asked whether he personally asked Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, ranted about media bias and defended Trump amid new reports about an intelligence official's whistleblower complaint, during a chaotic and fiery CNN interview Thursday night.
"So you did ask Ukraine to look into Joe Biden", Cuomo asked, to which Giuliani responded, "Of course I did".
The Trump administration began reviewing a $250 million Ukrainian aid package just weeks after the August meeting and chose to release the aid earlier this month, prompting speculation that Trump offered the aid to incentivize the opening of an investigation into Biden in order to bolster his own electoral prospects.
"No, actually I didn't", Giuliani replied.

Maguire in a hard position between a White House testing his loyalty and lawmakers demanding answers to their questions. Two congressional sources said the Senate Intelligence Committee had not been fully briefed on the complaint.
Cuomo pressed him, "You never asked anything about Hunter Biden? You never asked anything about Joe Biden and the prosecutor?"
But when asked whether Trump spoke with Ukraine's president about Biden, Giuliani said "I don't know if he did, and I wouldn't care if he did". No evidence has indicated that Joe Biden's move was inappropriate.
Mr Trump and his fellow Republicans have questioned whether it represented a conflict of interest that Hunter Biden had served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company.
Trump alleged that Biden "talked [about] billions of dollars that he's not giving to a certain country unless a certain prosecutor was taken off the case".
"Is the USA president really sending a signal now that he will turn his back on Ukraine because its new leaders refuse an American invitation to corruption?" Shokin eventually was sacked by Ukraine's parliament and replaced by Yuriy Lutsenko, who pursed the investigation of Zlochevsky and ultimately brought no charges.
