Rand Paul Demands The Media Unmask Trump-Ukraine Whistleblower
Nov 08 2019
Lawyers for the unidentified whistleblower pushed back amid the president's defenders - including his oldest son, among others - circulating the name of an individual they allege to have led Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry last month. Rand Paul urged the media to publish the whistleblower's identification in a speech at a Monday evening Trump rally in his dwelling state of Kentucky.
Trump Jr's Wednesday tweet comes regardless of strict guidelines and authorized protections which are speculated to defend the identities of whistleblowers from being made public.
"We also now know the name of the whistle-blower".
The crowd went wild with support for Trump.
The Submit couldn't independently confirm the whistleblower's identification and isn't publishing the title.
Trump's reelection campaign put out an extremely odd statement to try to change the narrative from Trump's inability to help boost a Republican governor over the line in ruby red Kentucky.
Republicans painted the whistle-blower, who had worked on the White House national security council earlier this year, as a Democratic Party supporter who lacked direct knowledge of the July 25 call. "Disclosure of any name undermines the integrity of the whistleblower system and will deter any future whistleblowers", attorneys Andrew P. Bakaj and Mark S. Zaid said in a joint statement.
Democrats on Capitol Hill responded to the complaint by launching an impeachment inquiry to examine the allegations, which have since been largely confirmed through testimony offered by current and former administration officials in congressional testimony. She described how Gordon Sondland, the USA ambassador to the European Union, had urged her to use Twitter to express support for Trump in order to save her job.
