Trump Outs Whistleblower on Twitter, Triggering Leftists Everywhere

From the very start of this attempt to impeach the President of the United States, the anonymous whistleblower who started it all has been the subject of much debate.

Some wonder whether he or she has the right to remain anonymous legally, while others continue to push for an examination of the moral repercussions of revealing their identity.  For the sake of whistleblowers of the future, it would likely be ideal to see this person remain anonymous, especially were something untoward happen to them on account of their being outed.

President Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he would like to see this person testify before Congress, and has attempted to claim that he has a right to face his “accuser”.

Now, the Commander in Chief has gone even further, retweeting a news article that mentions a name believed to be that of the whistleblower.

President Trump on Thursday retweeted a Trump campaign tweet that contained a link to an article that named the alleged Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) “whistleblower,” whose complaint catalyzed House Democrats’ drive towards impeachment.

The tweet, by @TrumpWarRoom, was in response to the “whistleblower’s” lawyer Mark Zaid, who said senators should “protect #whistleblowers, not attack them.”

The Trump campaign account responded, “The CIA ‘whistleblower’ is not a real whistleblower!” and posted a link to a Washington Examiner article, which named the alleged whistleblower…

The maneuver drew widespread criticism online.

As of this writing, Twitter has yet to respond to the incident, despite widespread calls for the banning of the President’s account.
