Default Well, this is a mighty interesting development in impeachment

Apparently no one in the prosecution (schiffs side) knows who the whistle blower is. That means that Trump's civil rights, his presidency, and the presidency as an institution are being threatened based on hearsay evidence from someone who may not even exist.

Welcome to the dictatorial states of America.

It's absolutely amazing that the house dems are doing this.

Too bad there isn't a halfway intelligent Republican with a backbone in the room! Obviously EVERYONE on both sides, and in the media, knows who the blower is (I didn't hear a whistle)!

Schiff says he doesn't know who it is, and of course we know that is a lie. However, he threatened to take disciplinary action against any Republican on the committee who says the blower's name. Now, iif he doesn't know who it is how will he know when someone says the name???

So one of the Repubs should just say the name and then feign ignorance (shouldn't be hard!) and say they didn't know that was the guy.

Since there is no legal prohibition for disc!osing the identity of a "whistle blower" , someone needs to grow a pair and blurt it out.

Now think about this, what if Trump and the Patriots are allowing this to happen as a means of exposure.

It is crazy the way they are going about this. More millions going down the drain.

Whistle blower protections were put in place back in 1989 and signed by a Republican president. Kind of late to start whining just because the law doesn’t jive with the current lame Trump defense agenda.

Who needs the whistle blower any way. Plenty of damning evidence has been submitted and they’ve only completed one day of open hearings.

Whistle blowers are protected from retribution, but not from disclosure. The accused are protected from anonymous and unverified witnesses. Otherwise I'm a whistle blower and I'm saying all Dumbycrats are guilty of every crime in the book. When do the enquiries begin?
