WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) President Donald Trump retweeted, then deleted, a post that included the alleged name of the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint ultimately led to Trumps impeachment by the House.
Just before midnight Friday, Trump retweeted a message from Twitter user @Surfermom77, an account that claims to be a woman named Sophia who lives in California. The account shows some indications of automation, including an unusually high amount of activity and profile pictures featuring stock images from the internet.
By Saturday morning, the post had been removed from Trumps feed, though it could still be found in other ways, including on a website that logs every presidential tweet.
While Trump has repeatedly backed efforts to unmask the whistleblower, his retweet marks the first time he has directly sent the alleged name into the Twitter feed of his 68 million followers.
Unmasking the whistleblower, who works in the intelligence field, could violate federal protection laws that have historically been supported by both parties.
The whistleblower filed a complaint in August about one of Trumps telephone conversations with Ukraines President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and other dealings with the Eastern European nation. The complaint prompted House Democrats to launch a probe that ended with Trumps impeachment earlier this month. The matter now heads to the Senate, where the Republican majority is expected to acquit the president.

Where are you coming from?
Nobody knows who you are
All the whistle blower law does is legalize a Deep State Coup.
PASS IT ON
ERIC CIARAMELLA DIDN’T KILL JEFFREY EPSTEIN!
So how can you break the law if you dont know the identity of the weasel blower?
Why did they change the whistle blower statute for this traitor? Why is this not an issue???
The MSM operates like a bad spy novel. Anyone who knows anything has already heard the name of the deepstate operative being called a whistle blower. And the MSM is well aware of that.
PASS IT ON”
You actually mean A BULLET FOR ERIC CIARAMELLA. PASS IT ON
He’s not a whistleblower. He is a coup participant.
Yet it took 2-3 years for Twitter to get rid of the Krassenbots - even though everyone on the Right knew they were automated.
This is always the claim from the Twitter Lefties.
Everyone on the Right on Twitter is a Russian bot.
This is the first time I’ve seen AP (or any of the other fake news outlets) try to find out if a twitter poster is a bot.
They usually consider a twitter post an unimpeachable ( sorry for the pun) source.
I don’t think he is the one that removed it, because it’s not the only tweet missing. I think twitter is censoring him.
His account was also down for a short time yesterday.
Congress changed it just for this douche.
I don’t do the twitter,tweets,whatever it is,President Trump seems to like it.
Horrible thought in my overtired mind tonight: what if the Dems impeach Trump again over exposing the whistleblower?
Loss of office by a tweet. First in history.
