Schiffs claim that the whistleblower has a statutory right to anonymity Schiff: Whistleblower has 'right' to anonymity Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) misleadingly claimed t November 20, 2019 at 3:00 a.m. EST I am concerned about a bad-faith effort to out a whistleblower who has a statutory right to remain anonymous.
Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), in a closed-door deposition of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, Oct. 29, 2019
The whistleblower has a right to anonymity. There are public reports that the life of the whistleblower has been threatened. We do not want this committee used, or this testimony used, to try to exact political retribution against the whistleblower.

The whistleblower has the right, a statutory right, to anonymity. These proceedings will not be used to out the whistleblower.

Does the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Trump have a statutory right to remain anonymous, as Schiff
Its not a right spelled out in any statute. But national security experts warn that disclosing the whistleblowers identity could expose him to danger and retribution, and chill whistleblowing in general.
The Facts A male CIA analyst filed a detailed complaint about Trumps July 25 phone call with the president of Ukraine and related events. Trump asked the Ukrainians to look into former vice president Joe Biden, a potential Democratic opponent in the 2020 election, and to investigate a debunked conspiracy theory that Ukrainians (and not Russians) interfered in the 2016 U.S. election, according to a White House record of the call.

Mr. Schiff should be called Pinocchio Man hes such an effing liar!
The compost just cannot stop with the lying and disinformation. No one has debunked the “conspiracy theory that Ukrainians (and not Russians) interfered in the 2016 U.S. election”. Even the wording of their statement is biased and intentionally misleading, as usual.
Mark Levin talked about it some time ago. The statute says nothing about being able to remain anonymous.
When the whistleblower is no longer useful he/she will know how Jeff Epstein feels.
It’s probably worse for the “WB” to have been doxxed like this but not publicly identified. He’ll be forever looking over his shoulder, which is good. If he’d been IDed then he would make some kind of claim that he deserves protection. Since we don’t know who he is (lol) he’s on his own.
Unfortunately the WB statute is being abused by members of the “resistance” who don’t like DJT’s policies or actions. Kind of like millions who take advantage of antidiscrimination laws to cover their incompetence.
The whistleblower who questioned our government’s payments to Halper was punished!
I seem to remember Obama arresting and pressing charges against any whistle blowers who said anything about his transgressions
And in my gut, we're going to find that this person is closely aligned with James Comey. The MO is identical to Comey and his leaks.
so the accused doesn’t get to face his accuser?
Well that’s fair in a free society. No sham trial here.
I don’t think the demtards realize what they’re doing, in terms of repercussions.
The statute says nothing about being able to remain anonymous.
Its about protecting whistleblowers against retaliation.
Were whistleblowers to be allowed anonymity, it would become a shitstorm of false allegations.
He didn’t qualify as a whistleblower until the rules where inexplicably changed immediately after the phone call, allowing for hearsay, which it was. That makes it CONSPIRACY BY EVERYONE IN THE CHAIN TO COMMIT HIGH TREASON.
So, exactly like what is happening now with Trump.
Considering congress changed the definition of whistle blower specifically and only for him a few weeks before
According to the spirit of the Constitution, an accused has the right to face his accuser in court. There is no statutory right for a man to put an accusation out there and refuse to own up to it.
There is No Statutory right.
Its a bunch of DEM Hacks.
Just like IG Horowitz withholding names of wrongdoers. There is nothing anywhere to support that.
Made up of whole cloth to protect Democrats.
Media follows suit - because theyre in on it
Who says the whistleblower is not another Schiffless parody?
