Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is warning top intelligence community officials that President Trump could expose a whistleblower at the center of the House impeachment inquiry.
Schumer sent a letter to acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire and Inspector General Michael Atkinson on Monday saying he’s “concerned” Trump might disclose the individual’s identity and wants to know what steps are being taken to protect the person.
The article goes on to state the following:
“In light of the President’s ill-advised statements, his lack of respect for the rule of law and his well-documented habit of condoning violence by his supporters, I am concerned that he may disclose the whistleblower’s identity or cause it to be disclosed by others in the Administration,” Schumer wrote in the letter.
Schumer’s letter was delivered after Trump demanded during a Cabinet meeting that the whistleblower be publicly identified (see video below).
Trump accused Democrats of fighting dirty over impeachment, calling them “vicious”. He also questioned the need to protect the whistleblower, who he says gave a “totally false account”. pic.twitter.com/UYlZK6bmqo
