Donald Trump junior, 41 years old, is an apt pupil of his father. Once again he has shown that laws and rules play no role when it comes to the interests of the Trump clan. The oldest Trump-son spread on Twitter is an article from the right of the news platform, "Breitbart News", called the alleged name of the anonymous Whistleblower in the Ukraine affair. Strict rules apply in the United States, in order to protect the identity of whistleblowers.
This protection, the Republicans had questioned in the last few days, getting louder and louder face. The influence said Republican Senator Lindsey Graham rich, the law should only protect against dismissal from the public service, but not before revealing the identity. You have to know the political Background of the informants.
Informant should be as close as Democrats
The identity of the alleged informant had of the news platform, "Real Clear Investigations" already at the end of October revealed. Accordingly, it is a 33-year-old CIA analyst who is close to the Democrats. The Tweet from Trump, Jr. was made, the identity of the informant for the first time, from the closest environment of the President to the public. The lawyers of the whistle-blowers have by now pointed out in an opinion that such a step could endanger the safety of your client and his family.
The publication of the Name of show of desperation, of attempts, of the statements of the whistleblower to distract, said the lawyers. "That will not spare the President the need to comment on the substantive allegations, which have proved to be Substantially true." In the house of representatives, the preparations for impeachment proceedings.
"a Devastating effect on future whistleblowers"
Almost all of the US media to respect the privacy of the Whistleblower – which does surprisingly well to the TV channel Fox News, which is close to the President. Well-known Fox-News-presenters such as Laura Ingraham, or Sean Hannity are more Trump Fans than journalists. As CNN reported, has not stopped the management of the TV station his employees to call the identity of the Whistleblower. Because the disclosure of the Name would have "a devastating effect on future whistleblowers".
Even Hannity, talking on the phone regularly with the President, followed the instruction of his employer – but that can change. "I'm going to play this game for a while," said Hannity, according to the CNN report.
dispute in the Senate to whistleblower protection
According to the Tweet from Trump Junior, the Democrats felt compelled to take the now-endangered informants immediately out of the line of fire. In order to confirm the laws for the protection of whistleblowers once again, they were in the Senate about a Resolution to the vote, which was promptly rejected by the Republicans. In particular, Senator Rand Paul objected to the suggestion of the Democrats. Paul takes the position that the Name of the Whistleblower belongs to the Public. He accuses the media to do their job.
President, Trump claimed for days, the Whistleblower was an Obama man and a proven Trump-opponent. So the Democrats are increasingly the position of the Republicans face, they would have staged the Ukraine affair as a political campaign against the President, to put it down.
Mazie Hirono, Senator for the Democrats, countered with the Argument that the Republicans wanted to distract you with their political maneuvers of the allegations against Trump. Hirono emphasized that the statements of the whistle-blowers are far from being confirmed in the interviews of several witnesses in the investigation committees and has been underpinned. And even of such close to Trump politically.
