    The President firing the whistleblower would constitute witness intimidation. Yet another crime republicans can ignore.

    • Except that it was not a “whistleblower ” it was a C_A Fake Intel set up !

      @Blue Sky My friend, Trump has already confessed. The VP, Pompeo, Giuliani, aides and the transcript have all confirmed the whistleblower’s report.

      You have to be incredibly ignorant to think he’s innocent.

      If your next reply is about Hillary or Obama or Biden, expect a huge eye-roll.

      If you’re a troll, well, I hope you are a troll. An American this obtuse is pretty damning on the state of the electorate.

    King Boagart- Trump’s a genius amongst his stablemates. Maybe he got his bonespurs from training for the Belmont.

  5. The coward didn’t interview with Mueller but somehow the same coward wants to interview the whistleblowers!

      Consistency has never been Dumbo’s strong suit.

      Process crimes BTW, the people in the Justice system that have rigged these arrests for political purposes will be arrested (Deep State STING almost complete)

    Kudos to whistleblower Patrick Eddington re 1) Defense of Edward Snowden and 2) Not giving a MUCK about the Monster in the WH and his retaliatory whistleblower BS.

    • Cheryl R Leigh —they’re courageous PATRIOTS who stand up against tyranny and corruption. The WB took their oath to preserve, protect and defend the constitution SERIOUSLY and FAITHFULLY unlike that traitor trump

  7. Hey Whistleblower at the IRS …TAKE IT TO THE PRESS …since this tax thing is so un-reported …the people need to know!

  8. the whistleblowers need to be protected! only a dictator threatens prison or death for speaking out about serious corruption. in other words, we have a dictator in our white house. the question becomes one of whether we love America or whether we want a dictatorship (shadow-run by trumputin but in fact run by putin). time for all patriots to stand up and be counted!

  9. If Trump discovers the identity of the whistle blower and reveals that name to the public, Trumps should be both criminally and civilly libel for every adverse action against that person.

    If I were more religious, I’d be wondering how come the Earth hasn’t cracked open and swallowed the evil orange creature.

    Obama quietly signed this repeal of the Smith Mundt Act Modernization on Dec 24 ,2012

    The end of funding of the obama program called “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act”
    This was used to pay all these reporters and outlets, now the money is running out and they are no longer getting gov checks.

    PROPAGANDA false information on the MSM has been legalised FROM 2012…!

    When Dumbo J. Trump ever worry about the law?

    This is how many lies Trump will have told until finally he will be impeached out of office:

    From MSM dictionary: “Whistleblower” n. A spy planted by the CIA inside the White House in order to find dirt on a president the establishment doesn’t like!

  17. I have second hand knowledge of a couple decades of Arkancides, does this mean I could be a whistleblower?

    • You would have to go into witness protection for the rest of your life and be careful you don’t accidentally commit suicide by shooting yourself in the back of the head from a thousand yards away.

      NOT if HRC finds out first….

    With everybody – left and right – claiming to protect the Constitution, you would think that it would be pretty safe.

  19. “I can make my supporters shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and get away with it.”

    I can’t wait for Congress to have their meetings with the *two* whistle blowers . Christmas day is coming for America and for the majority of Americans, We all know what we want as a Country. Santa please take Trump on your sleigh with having Rudolf heel kick him off the back of it while over the middle of the ocean.
