WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT: Trump Comment Put Me in Danger

The whistleblower at the center of the Ukraine flap says that President Trump‘s comments are putting him or her in danger.

Trump has called for the exposure of the whistleblower’s sources inside the White House, And his or her lawyers believe that could lead to their client’s being exposed. More, they say there’s a $50,000 bounty on their client’s head. (NBC News)

Meanwhile, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff says the whistleblower is very close to testifying on Capitol Hill, and that the only sticking point is getting his or her attorneys security clearance so they can be at a hearing. (USA Today)

Hot Takes:

  • I mean, if this whistleblower were walking down the middle of Fifth Avenue…
  • Trump clearly doesn’t understand the intent of whistleblower laws. If people don’t feel safe reporting crimes, corruption will rule the day.
  • Everyone has a right to face their accuser. Being President shouldn’t change that.
  • It’s only a matter of time before this person’s identity is exposed, anyway. You know the media will see to that.
