Democrats trying to 'protect' cowardly 'whistleblower'
As President Donald Trump continued his attacks on the Ukraine whistleblower on Monday, Chuck Schumer is asking the intelligence community what is being done to protect the source from harm.Schumer's statement shows a lack of self-awareness. Most of the violence in this country is by Democrats how attack Republicans in restaurants and the Antifa Brownshirts of liberal fascism who assault Trump supporters on the streets. This cowardly whistleblower who is spreading hearsay that turns out o be false and misleading needs to be forced into the light to defend his conduct. To have some anonymous character attempt to push a false story to impeach the President is ridiculous.
The Senate Minority leader asked both the acting director of national intelligence and the inspector general on Monday afternoon to outline what "specific steps" they are taking to protect the whistleblower. Schumer said his understanding is the unidentified individual is receiving some security but said that he fears "safety risks may intensify in the event that the whistleblower’s identity is disclosed."
"In light of the President’s ill-advised statements, his lack of respect for the rule of law and his well-documented habit of condoning violence by his supporters, I am concerned that he may disclose the whistleblower’s identity or cause it to be disclosed by others in the administration," Schumer wrote in a letter to acting DNI Joseph Maguire and IG Michael Atkinson. "If that were to happen, it will be your responsibility to take immediate action to protect the whistleblower from both workplace reprisal and threats to his or her personal safety."
