Trump impeachment: Second whistleblower comes forward

Another Great Patriot Whistle Blower as enshrined in the constitution ‘with first-hand knowledge’ of corruption allegations will sink Trumps ship

A second whistleblower¬†has come forward “with first-hand knowledge” of explosive allegations against Donald Trump that triggered an impeachment inquiry. In what could be a damaging blow to the president’s repeated denials of wrongdoing over his phone call with Ukraine’s leader, the intelligence official is said to have already been interviewed by Michael Atkinson, the inspector general of the US Intelligence Community. News of the development was revealed by the attorney representing the whistleblower who first reported the Mr Trump’s phone call with Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky, in which he pressured him to investigate key political rival and potential 2020 presidential candidate¬†Joe Biden.

The attorney, Mark Zaid, told ABC News he was now representing both officials.

He said the latest whistleblower had not yet spoken to congressional committees investigating the alleged offences, but that both officials had the protection of laws designed to prevent them being dismissed in retaliation.
