Further evidence that Trump fears no consequence with breaking the law. Such a leader’s actions greatly influences others.

Washington (AFP) – Donald Trump faced calls from his own party to show more restraint on Twitter amid a storm of outrage Sunday over the president revealing the name of a man widely thought to be the whistleblower who triggered his impeachment.
Criticism has been growing since Trump retweeted an attack that included the name of the reported CIA staffer at the heart of the Ukraine scandal — an act that could violate the whistleblower’s guaranteed anonymity under the law.

Firestorm… lol. The way they attempt to dramatize everything.

I don’t care about the name. WHAT is he? CIA agent, asset or staffer?
Funny how that is never clearly reported.

I don’t want their job clearly reported. There are two reasons Drumpf and the rapeblicans party continue to bring the “whistleblower” up. One is to serve as a distraction from their lack of defense and the other is to intimidate future “whistleblowers”. Anything that would provide hints to their identity should not be published.
When the going gets tough, the tough help each other.

Well, Trump did break the law-again-by disclosing the name of the whistleblower. Of course, he’s proven he doesn’t give a shit about that and really does think he at least should be above the law. Like any mob boss does.
Who the whistleblower is or who he works for has been irrelevant for some time. Trump provided all the evidence needed against him on live television, again and again and again. What the whistleblower alleged has been proven by direct evidence and the testimony of eyewitnesses.
And none of this is going to matter in the long run. Either the Senate will have a trial and vote against removing Trump or there never will be a trial. Personally, I prefer the latter option.
Iowa is coming. That is far more important.

The name has been floating around so much that you could find it with a little googling!
