    Can Trump Legally Out The Whistleblower? Experts Say It Would Not Violate Any Laws

    In recent days, President Trump and his allies have amplified their calls for the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry to be identified, presenting the question of whether it would be a crime for the president to unmask the anonymous whistleblower.


    According to four former top federal government officials who worked in intelligence and national security, the answer is no.


    "If Trump thinks he knows the name, he can come out and say it, and he's probably as protected as anyone is," said Robert Litt, former general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence under President Barack Obama.


    Litt and several other legal experts who talked to NPR said Trump uttering or tweeting the name could in theory trigger an article of impeachment for retaliating against a whistleblower, but it would not run afoul of any federal criminal statutes.


    Similarly, if a news outlet, member of Congress or member of the public outed the whistleblower, legal experts said, no criminal law would be violated.


    "There is no overarching protection for the identity of the whistleblower under federal law," said Dan Meyer, a lawyer and the former executive director of the intelligence community whistleblower program. "Congress has never provided that protection."

    The gossiper's identity isn't legally protected. Your claim is misleading at best. And we all know who the gossiper is anyway.

    As I understand it, only the IG cannot reveal the identity of the whistleblower.

    No, you're lying. And Trump Jr. only retweeted a news story. So your creepy obsession with him isn't even relevant.

    I don't care what you think either. I think it's hilarious actually, you always taking bullshit at face value. Not much of a, "thinker" for sure.

    I'm strongly anti-Trump. In fact I have disliked him longer than most.

    Report away, all I did was leave the sentence I wanted to address. The rest of your post was bullshit.

    Yeah, right. You cite me some exact shit, son. And I want certification.

    Those prospective witnesses, offered by Republicans who only want to disturb the public hearings, won't be accepted or called to testify.

    Nunes and Jordan and Meadows will be left crying because Trump will be very, very mad at them for failing at this ruse.

    Your surrender is noted. And again, the DNC operative is Eric Ciaramella. Word it he hates to be cross-examined.
