Whistle Blower !?

Why is the whistle blower being kept annonimous this long ? Why, like Ms Yovonavitch, Kent, Taylor, Vindman and others isn't the WB seen and heard yet ?

I mean, what is the protocol and strategy here if he/she is a witness? M

    The law called The Whistleblower Protection Act requires them to remain anonymous so they are not subject to attacks or retribution.

    Why do you guys keep posting on the whistleblower when he no longer matters? Every single thing he said in his complaint has already been verified by documents and witnesses, including most importantly the call summary that Trump released himself.

      But knowing just who that is carries weight...I mean what if the WB turns out to be the pope, or Bill Gates, or Warren Buffet, or Melonia Trump ?? !!! 
      If laws protect the WB's identity, when DOES, at just what stage DOES, he become known to all ?!!

    Whisleblower laws protect a whistleblowers identity in order to prevent reprisals and encourage people to report wrongdoing they may have seen. 

    In this case, the whistleblower's testimony is pretty irrelevant.  We have plenty of other testimony which confirms what they initially reported.  Much of this evidence is better than what the whistleblower offered.  As Republicans pointed out at the start of this mess, the whistleblower didn't have first hand information about what went on.  They had heard things second and third hand.  The witnesses who have testified have much more direct information about the Trump administrations wrongdoing including a witness, Lt Colonel Alexander Vindman, who had first hand knowledge of the extortionate phone call.

    For his/her safety per the Whistleblower Act. The Republicans are obsessed with the whistleblower and frankly it shows their cluelessness and desperation. It doesn’t matter who the whistleblower is, so why is it so important that the GOP find out? For harassment purposes?

    The witnesses that have come forth make the whistleblower’s testimony irrelevant and unnecessary.

    Someone calls 911 because they hear shots down the street at the bank. The cops show up at the bank, and, sure enough, it’s been robbed, and there are numerous witnesses there who saw the crime. The suspects confess. Normally, at this point, no one cares about who called 911.

    The strategy is to reduce corruption in government by allowing employees who see that corruption to report it without risking losing their jobs. If you are against corruption, then you are for the WBers law which works to fight against corruption, by allowing them to remain anonymous.

    The WB is no witness. He or she is more like someone who calls 911. Besides, his or her testimony isn't necessary. It's all been corroborated.

  • The "whistle blower's" false testimony was written by a team of partisan democrat lawyers. Instead of whistle blower, we would be more accurate in designating them as the false witness.

    Oh gee. Hello! That's what they do. And we have laws to protect them. Hello?

    If the Republicans can question him under oath he will have to commit perjury to keep the Democrats' narrative going.

    The whistleblower doesn't have any information. Only hearsay was mentioned in the whistleblower report because the whistleblower never met or spoke with Trump and was never in attendance in any meetings on the matter.
