Is the whistle blower a hero or criminal spy?

    The whistleblower followed the law both in letter and spirit.

    The government has an official procedure for employees to report suspicions of wrongdoing. The whistleblower followed this procedure, and his report passed to the "higher-ups," ultimately arriving at the US Intelligence Services Inspector General, who classified it as "urgent concern." So the whistleblower did nothing illegal; and in fact, because he/she followed procedure, the whistleblower is protected by whistleblower laws.

    The alt-right has concocted a narrative about the whistleblower "leaking" but nothing could be farther from the truth. What happened was the Trump admin tried to use some legalistic slight of hand to keep the whistleblower report under wraps after it arrived at the IG and the Director of National Intelligence. By law, those guys have 7 days to hand any "urgent concern" documents to the Congressional intelligence committees, and the Trump admin sat on the report for almost 8 weeks.

    After bottling up the whistleblower report for all that time, the Trump administration made the decision to declassify it and release it for all. That's not a leak, it's an official government report.

    *** update ***

    @regerugged is pushing another phony narrative. He is trying to apply the standards of courtroom testimony to an internal "heads up" document. The whistleblower report amounts to a "heads up" for internal watchdogs that laws may have been broken, with pointers to the specific acts and why they might matter. Then it's up to the watchdogs to deal with the report and its ramifications. In this case, the IG, highest watchdog, classified the report as "urgent concern." That means some version of the report needs to go to the appropriate Congressional committees.

    His name is Adam Schiff and he's a card carrying member of Communist Party USA and a House Democrat in fear of prosecution. Definitely no hero and not smart enough to be a spy.

    Another libtard circle-jerk question obviously.

    When a whistleblower is protecting his country from abuse of power by its leader, he or she is a hero.

    He is a liberal hack. I won't be surprised to learn that he made the whole thing up just like Steele made up most of the stuff in the anti-Trump dossier Hillary paid him for.

    I say he is a partisan fraud. The whistle blower was not in on the phone conversation. He is claiming hearsay evidence, which is worthless.

      FALSE. Once the US Intelligence Services Inspector General classified the report as "urgent concern" it doesn't matter where the whistleblower was or what color his tie is. AT that point, Urgent Concern is the only issue.
