Ever since the news of the whistleblower came to the forefront, the identity of the whistleblower has been a big debate.
There have been many ideas on who it might be, but I think we pretty much know who it is at this point but no one is talking about it for fear of doing something illegal.
Some are even wondering whether this person can remain anonymous legally since they are accusing Trump of committing a crime. Since the President is presumably going to trial in the Senate, he should have the right to face his accuser.
On the other hand, the lefties want the head of anyone who dares to even think about who the whistleblower is.
Isn't it so strange now that Democrats love this whistleblower, but when it's Julian Assange or Eric Snowden telling the public how the government is spying on you, they want them thrown in prison?
President Trump has made it very clear that he would like the whistleblower to testify before Congress.
Now, Trump has gone even further, retweeting a news article that mentions a name believed to be that of the whistleblower. Which has everyone on the left triggered!
According to Breitbart,
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…

This is not acceptable behavior from the so-called leader of our country, and he must be called to task for it!https://t.co/QeuaDdSgJQ

Usin’ social media to commit a serious felony should result in a permanent Twitter ban and another article of impeachment. https://t.co/t51Z22Q7xV

No moron. It's not illegal. It's been said time and time again that it's only illegal for the Attorney General to name the whistleblower. The Democrats were trying to use this same weak argument against Rand Paul as well.
...The New York Times and Washington Post first reported that the “whistleblower” is a relatively junior CIA analyst. CNN reported that he was a Democrat.
During the public impeachment inquiry hearings, Democrat lawmakers refused to let any witnesses identify who they spoke with about Ukraine in the intelligence community, citing potential reprisals if he is identified.
