Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed Sen. Rand Paul for asking of media to disclose identity of the whistleblower.
“I cannot stress just how wrong this is. We have federal whistleblower laws designed to protect the identity and safety of patriotic Americans who come forward to stand up for the Constitution,” Schumer said during a speech on the Senate floor.
“There should be bipartisan outrage at the public attempts by the president and a member of this body to expose the identity of a federal whistleblower,” Chuck Schumer argued.
He added that he was “appalled” by calls for the whistleblower’s identity to be publicly disclosed.
Yesterday, while speaking at a Trump campaign rally, Senator Rand Paul said, “We also now know the name of the whistleblower. The whistleblower needs to come forward as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs.“
“I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name,” Paul also added.
His comments come after Trump and his allies have been calling for the whistleblower to come forward, arguing that Trump has the right to confront his accusers.
