President Trump is adamant: he wants to know the identity of the infamous whistleblower – he also wants the whistleblower to come forward. Speaking to reporters on the White House lawn, Trump repeated his previous claim that the unidentified person gave a "very inaccurate report" about his call with the Ukrainian president.
Trump also accused Democrats of staging a scam and challenged the media to expose the whistleblower's identity. Echoing that sentiment? House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who says Democrats are simply trying to undo the 2016 election. Appearing on CBS' “Face the Nation” yesterday, McCarthy maintained that the whistleblower was not on the Ukraine call and said it's “unacceptable that they will not publicly answer questions.”
Well, one problem is solved. The whistleblower in the Trump-Ukraine controversy is willing to answer written questions from Republican lawmakers. The anonymous whistleblower's lawyer Mark Zaid says that they've given Republican members of Congress the opportunity to submit written questions that the whistleblower would answer under oath and penalty of perjury.
