Rand Paul Deals BIG TIME Damage To Whistleblower

Via The Washington Examiner:

Senate Republicans blocked a resolution aimed at keeping secret the identity of a whistleblower whose complaint against President Trump sparked an impeachment investigation.

 Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York and his fellow Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii introduced a resolution stating Congress has “a duty” to protect the identity of whistleblowers.

“In normal times we would be protecting the whistleblower,” Hirono said. “That is what this resolution does.”

The resolution comes after various Republicans, including Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, have threatened to disclose the name of the whistleblower, because they believe he is politically motivated.
