President Trump is calling out the whistleblower on their nonsense, referring to the anonymous person as a "fraud." On Tuesday, he questioned why we can't interview the person about their complaints of him and his talk with the leader of Ukraine.
The president has used Twitter as a platform to express his desire to meet with the person and question them about the their accusations and motives.
"So if the so-called “Whistleblower” has all second hand information, and almost everything he has said about my “perfect” call with the Ukrainian President is wrong (much to the embarrassment of Pelosi & Schiff), why aren’t we entitled to interview & learn everything about the Whistleblower,” Trump tweeted.
He added, “This is simply about a phone conversation that could not have been nicer, warmer, or better. No pressure at all (as confirmed by Ukrainian Pres.). It is just another Democrat Hoax!”
ABC News' chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl is saying that Trump is "intimidating" the whistleblower, and claiming that it is an impeachable offense.
Karl said, “It’s clear that the president is directing the response to all this himself. Both through his tweeting some 30 tweets over the weekend. But in terms of this attack on the whistleblower, it has been relentless."
"Of course, it started by suggesting the whistleblower those who talk to the whistleblower are essentially spies, and the punishment for spying used to be a death. Now demanding to out the whistleblower." He continued, "His own aides have called whistleblower part of the deep state conspiracy.”

“George, this could well be a violation of federal whistleblower protection laws and is also the kind of thing that could end up being one of the articles of impeachment against the President, imitating the whistleblower," Karl added.
