‘Do Your Job and Print His Name’: Rand Paul Calls on Media to out Whistleblower

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called on the media to print the name of the whistleblower, who filed a complaint about President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, during a Trump rally in Kentucky on Monday night.

Speaking at the rally, Paul said, “We know the name of the whistleblower,” referring to reports by some media outlets that appeared to identify the whistleblower, and said the whistleblower should be a witness in House’s impeachment probe:

“We also now know the name of the whistleblower. The whistleblower needs to come forward as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs.”

Paul then called on the media to “do your job” and publish the name of the whistleblower, “I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name.”

Watch his comments below:

Mark Zaid, the whistleblower’s attorney, said Paul’s call to out the whistleblower “betrays the interests of the Constitution,” in a statement to The Hill:

“A member of Congress who calls for the identity of any lawful whistleblower to be publicly revealed against their wishes disgraces the office they hold and betrays the interests of the Constitution and the American people.”

Trump has called for the whistleblower’s identity to be revealed and called the individual to testify publicly in the impeachment inquiry.

Attorneys for the whistleblower have been in negotiations with Congress about the possibility of having the individual testify. Over the weekend, the whistleblower signaled an openness to answer written questions, to satisfy calls for them to testify while protecting their anonymity.

However, Republican lawmakers have rejected that proposal. On Sunday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee, said written answers would not “provide a sufficient opportunity to probe all the relevant facts and cross-examine the so-called whistleblower.”

What do you think?

“As a Cult-45 member in good standing” Confused James

You are confused, Confused James. There is nothing good about backing King Donald The Loser unquestionably.

“https://www.monmouth.edu/polling-institute/reports/monmouthpoll_us_110519/”

So, it seems that there is NOTHING that King Donald The Loser could do that 62% of people who think he is doing a good job that would cause them to not support him. Nothing. That is NOT a good sign in a democracy.

“I WANT to know who the spy is in the Trump WH.” Confused James Why? At this point, the whistleblower is completely irrelevant. King Donald The Loser is acting as all fascists do, to show that they are all powerful and that our laws mean nothing. Anybody who plans on exposing ANY whistleblower is the enemy of this country. Rand Paul’s father would be turning over in his grave if he knew what his son is doing today. Rand Paul went from a critic of candidate Trump on the debate stage, to a King Donald The Loser bootlicker just like… Read more »

As a Cult-45 member in good standing, I WANT to know who the spy is in the Trump WH. Obviously this loser is a DemocRATic low life who – like most – is scared of his/her own shadow at night and a hold over from the abysmal reign of the Kenyan Marxist. Either put up or shut up, Schitty Schiff – America’s biggest loser in drag.

This is a PDF about 5 year’s worth of whistleblower reports JUST ABOUT THE PENTAGON! Over 95,000 of them. These are people who saw or found something wrong and reported them officially, as we all are recommended to do. Go through an airport or subway and you constantly hear, “see something, say something”. That’s what Pentagon whistleblowers did every 6 minutes just to protect the Pentagon and our country (us).

And you want to out a patriot? For what? Gloating? Self-aggrandizement? You are pathetic.

Rand Paul is confused about our whistleblower protection laws. They are there to protect the honest, hardworking people who serve this country and want to protect it from harm. The retribution that would come out of King Donald The Loser’s mouth and the harm that could be unleashed by Cult-45 members are the exact reason why this kind of law exists. KDTL refused to testify before Mueller and only submitted written testimony, but NOW he says that written testimony is NOT good enough FOR HIM and wants the whistleblower outed by testifying in public (which is pointless now)! I am… Read more »
