The Lawyer for Whistle-blower fear for his "clients' safety"
The lawyer who represents the intelligence whistle-blower, who filed a complaint and started an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, for allegedly pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden, fear for their "client's personal safety". At one point in the letter, the lawyer writes "certain individuals have issued a $50,000 “bounty” for “any information” relating to our client’s identity".
Trump "I deserve to meet my accuser":
The New York Times received criticism last week for reporting that the whistle-blower was a C.I.A officer, "who was reportedly working in the White House at one point." The hashtag #CancelNYT was trending on twitter last Thursday.
