.................................

"60 Minutes" host Scott Pelley announced the network had obtained a letter indicating the whistleblower is under protection because they fear for their safety.

The letter from the whistleblower's lawyer, Andrew Bakaj, Compass Rose LLC, indicates that the office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has activated "appropriate resources" to protect them.

The Hill has reached out to Bakaj.

The complaint, which was released to the public on Thursday, is at the center of the House Democrat's impeachment inquiry.

Trump and his allies have sought to discredit the complaint and the whistleblower behind it.

The president on Sunday tweeted that the person who filed the complaint should be outed and said they will face "big consequences."...............................

Sure hoping the whistleblower gets the protection they need!

3. Surprised. Thought They Might Protect Him/Her Like Jeffrey Epstein

It is not like everybody in the whole world didn't know that Epstein was at risk given the information he knew and how a trial would air some serious dirty laundry.

4. I'm worried about Barr getting the information somehow...

It's appalling that the AG of the US would be one of the biggest threats in protecting the WB.

5. This was exactly my first concern.

That the whistleblower needed protection. Their testimony cannot come fast enough.

I couldn't access the CBS link, it's been removed. Probably a good thing. Too much information might encourage one of trumpie's nut-job supporters to act.

6. Don't put him in Epstein's old cell.

Or in any way allow the AG any private access, or anyone he sends. And make sure the gd camera's are on!

12. How long before we find out

He has asked numerous people to find out who they are for him, and then he can directly attack and threaten them, and use Barr to suggest they will be prosecuted for some bs made up accusation for trump. It's coming. Trump will abuse all powers to get to them for his revenge.
