Donald Trump Jr. Just Revealed Alleged Whistleblower’s Name Despite Death Threats
Donald Trump Jr. is putting the alleged Ukraine whistleblower in a lot of danger.
Credible mainstream media sources have so far refused to speculate on the name of the whistleblower who launched Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal, especially because the whistleblower’s lawyer has warned of possibly violent consequences for their yet-unnamed client.
But that didn’t stop the president’s son from tweeting out the name right-wing sites are circulating on Wednesday, ignoring any death threats against the whistleblower that come with it.
The whistleblower’s concerns originated with a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump seems to tell Zelensky he won’t get U.S. aid money unless he investigates the 2016 U.S. election and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
The whistleblower report eventually turned into an official impeachment inquiry into Trump, and testifying witness have since corroborated the whistleblower’s outline of a quid pro quo between Trump and Zelensky.
Because of course he did!!!

While one New York Times report did hint at the whistleblower’s identity, a name has been publicized by right-wing sources, with Trump’s son now even getting involved, despite whistleblower protection laws.
The whistleblower’s lawyer didn’t acknowledge if that name was correct in a Wednesday statement, but did explicitly condemn Trump Jr. and other sources for explicitly furthering a dialogue that “will simply place that individual and their family at risk of serious harm.”
The White House says the president nor any senior administration official was aware in advance that the president’s eldest son was going to tweet out the name of the alleged whistleblower.
I’ve also asked if they approve of his decision to do so.

Twitter was sickened:
GMAFB. Of course Trump and the White House knew in advance that Don Jr was going to tweet the name of the alleged whistleblower.
It was a coordinated effort – the Kremlin also released the name of the alleged whistleblower. https://t.co/qr94Myap4I

Donald Trump's bratty man-child son, Don, Jr., just outed the whistleblower in a tweet.
Apparently, Junior has the same disregard for American law when he tweets about American intelligence agents as when he meets with Russian ones. pic.twitter.com/LGPm2Rvuej

The whistleblower highlighted problematic behavior that Trump's own words and appointees later confirmed.
The only purpose of unmasking the whistleblower, and risking his life, is to revive the zombie "deep state coup" narrative rather than be held accountable. https://t.co/VzpC5Fy56Q
