Trump Pushes Out Tweet Naming Alleged Whistleblower

Source: Daily beast

On Thursday evening, Donald Trump pushed out on Twitter the name of the alleged whistleblower whose complaint led to the president’s impeachment.


Trump’s personal Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, retweeted a post by the re-election campaign’s official “war room” account that was aimed at the whistleblower’s attorney Mark Zaid. “It's pretty simple. The CIA ‘whistleblower’ is not a real whistleblower!” reads the tweet, which links to a Washington Examiner item. That piece, published Dec. 3, includes the alleged whistleblower’s name in the headline. The Daily Beast is declining to publish the name and has not independently verified the identity of the whistleblower.

1. The Washington Examiner?

Sure I buy anything they say.

BTW the problem is not "the Whistleblower" but that Trump broke the law in asking Ukraine to meddle
in our elections.

From wiki: After the Climategate controversy, the Washington Examiner published an op-ed which said of climate science, "Some decades hence, I suspect, people will look back and wonder why so many government, corporate and media elites were taken in by propaganda that was based on such shoddy and dishonest evidence." The allegations regarding the basis for the supposed controversy were rapidly debunked. The scientific consensus that global warming is occurring as a result of human activity remained unchanged throughout the investigations.

Thank you Botany and that should be said at the beginning of every article or opinion when discussing this matter.

3. Gee, if *I* started broadcasting info that would make some prominent person vulnerable...

...I'd get a visit from the FBI or even the Secret Service.

15. It should be added and voted on.

Obstruction of justice also, the details of which are in the Mueller Report.

11. Probably done to intimidate any potential future whistleblowers.

Typical of how Republicans roll.

They're trying to extend Raygun's 11th Commandment to the whole of government and give it lethal consequences.

13. Outing a whistleblower under protection by law is a crime

But as he's shown over and over, he doesn't care about the law. Twitter needs to ban his account.

18. We either have a nation rule by law or we have anachy of the rich & rules for the rest of us

This is not quite him killing someone on main street by his own hand with his own gun... he is not that brave. This is him committing a Federal felony hoping that some 'fool' will kill someone he has declared an enemy.

A strategy for eliminating enemies that Stalin used for those that were not in his own cabinet, just to be clear. He had other means of eliminating those who had supported him that he did not trust.
