The impeachment inquiry: "We could not ignore what the president did."

Source: CBS News / 60 Minutes

Tonight, "60 Minutes" has obtained a letter that indicates the government whistleblower who set off the impeachment inquiry of President Trump is under federal protection, because he or she fears for their safety. These rapidly developing events began Tuesday when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ordered the investigation based on a phone call between Mr. Trump and the president of Ukraine. President Volodymyr Zelensky asked Mr. Trump for missiles, Mr. Trump asks Zelensky for "a favor" to investigate Mr. Trump's Democratic rivals.

5. Trumpists who do this don't see the reflection in the mirror, they ARE the Deep State

They are tRumps unwitting shadow government and militia or waffen SS, if you will. They are blind to reality and think they are patriots, when they are the exact opposite, domestic terrorists.

13. No, they are not S.S., they are S.A..

Or 'brownshirts' if you will. (I agree that they are domestic terrorists. That is exactly what they are). Little more than trashy street thugs, they intimidate and harass in a manner similar to the KKK. They should be treated as such, rounded up, and made to answer for their positions on their adoration of that child's call for civil unrest based solely on his personal lamentations over his bruised ego, and their participation in either actions, or complicit coverup of actions, that are designed to facilitate civil unrest and/or disobedience to the very laws they have been waving in our faces for decades. Hey, they are the ones who used to always say, "If you have not done anything or have anything to hide, then you are okay" when we complained about intrusive laws and policy. Time to show them that crap works both ways. If they have done nothing against the law or against the country i.e.: plotting against the rule of law and/or basically plotting insurrection (let's not sugar coat it.. they never do), then they should not have a problem with some questioning and investigation to prove they did nothing wrong. Correct? Exactly correct.

15. I agree. And if any harm should come to the whistleblower. This person should be prosecuted as well.

2. If the almost "spies" were just making stuff up, you wouldn't need to worry about them

as traitors. You'd only worry if they were revealing stuff that was true.

Trump is so stupid. With his threats to punish "spies" for "treason", he's basically admitting that these second hand hearsay accounts of the whistleblower must be true.

He's not going to advocate killing someone for making stuff up because that would be a personal suicide wish 12,000 times over since taking office!

7. Took the words right out of my mouth.

Can they pass a verdict or put him under house arrest before this goes to trial?

8. Think about it, Trump, the President of the U.S.A. tweeting threats. He cannot shut up.

These are dangerous statements in my opinion.

11. Just think of what trump has done

With Putin, Kim, and the prince that was highly illegal, and a clear National Security threat to our country. The American people have a right to know, period.

12. Neither of these letters

Say that he is under Federal protection. They are letters from his lawyer asking for Federal protection.
