House Democrats are looking to prevent the whistleblower from being identified by holding the person's testimony at a remote location and potentially changing their appearance and voice.
Democrats are going to great lengths to hide the whistleblower's identity out of fear the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee could leak their identity, according to The Washington Post, which cited three people familiar with the discussions.
Democrats are considering holding testimony outside the Capitol as well as a staff-only session that would bar lawmakers from questioning the whistleblower, according to the Post.
Democrats are also weighing options to distort the whistleblower's appearance and voice, including through a video camera or audio-only testimony or by placing the person behind a screen, the Post reported.
These meetings could occur "within the next couple of weeks," though the date has not been decided, an official told the Post.
The whistleblower's allegations that President Trump sought to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden led Democrats to start an impeachment inquiry.
Trump has requested to know the identity of the whistleblower and has called the person "close to a spy."
The lawyer representing the whistleblower has expressed concern for his client's safety. A second whistleblower has hired the same legal team.
Democrats want secret Kangaroo courts.
Why is Sovietism making a resurgence, in this country no less.
Perhaps because the whistleblowers dont exist..they are a figment of Adam Schiff’s disgusting mind..there never was any whistleblower, Schiff wrote the whole darn “Complaint”
I think the whistle blower is Adam Schiff.
Shifty Schiff blew what?
Just wait until they go too far.. then!
” Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is fear and...our two chief weapons are fear , torture, and...our three chief weapons are...”
If the show trial was in Nantucket, the real bad actors would not have to travel far.
Of course, reactivating the Greenbriar Hotel might also make sense.
Then, there is always Guantanamo, Cuba.
I’m starting to wonder if at least one of the two Whistleblowers does not even exist. It’s just a composite persona of Democrat fables, lies and presumptions.
I wouldn’t put it past them.
Sort of like a faceless, nameless “Intern” that becomes a convenient scapegoat when something strange happens.
This is sooo crazy! They are pretending that they are doing an impeachment. Jokers
This sounds unconstitutional.
Sixth Amendment: right to face your accuser
But that won’t stop them.
Welcome to the Gulag.
It's a composite character Democrats created to leak false intel on Trump.
If anything Democrats are likely trying to find someone who can play the role in public just like they did with Christine Blasey Ford.
I've thought that since Day 1.
Why not just fake it?
I do hear that these days, with technology, they can even create fake videos of people saying things they never really said.
And then there’s the appointment reminder service that has a computer using a human voice that can answer customer questions. I saw a video of some tech experts who had designed an automated system that sounded exactly like a human being and could process questions with AI.
The Democrats will tell us the results later.
Just before they all go up on the DC cherry trees.
Its Barack Obama.
