President Trump says his administration is trying to get more information about the Whistleblower at the heart of the Ukraine controversy. Talking with reporters at the White House, Trump said the whistleblower “made incorrect claims” about a summer call with the president of Ukraine.
Trump again called it a "perfect" call and repeated condemnation of Congressman Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee. As we’ve been telling you, the Ukraine flap prompted the Democratic-led House to launch a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump. As much as the President may believe he’s entitled to know who the Whistleblower is, he’s not – that’s the word from attorney Andrew Bakaj, who represents the person.
Taking to Twitter, Bakaj says his client needs to be left alone – by everyone. “The Intel Community Whistleblower is entitled to anonymity,” he writes. “Law and policy support this and the individual is not to be retaliated against. Doing so is a violation of federal law.”
