1. I cannot express the horrifying impact of @DonaldJTrumpJr and @BreitbartNews to expose the whistleblower for pure retribution. This person followed the letter of the law under the Federal Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act. The Trump-appointed IG determined..
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews 2...the allegations were credibly and forwarded them on to the acting intelligence director who was REQUIRED to turn them over to Congressional intelligence committees. Instead, he - in conspiracy with @TheJusticeDept - tried to bury it. It only emerged when the IG disclosed...
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews @TheJusticeDept 3...that a report existed, but he would not say what because he could not disclose. If that IG had not had the integrity to follow the law - when everyone else in the Trump Criminal Enterprise was undermining it - we never would have known about this. Then, the GOP says.....
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews @TheJusticeDept 4..."the whistleblower knows nothing! It's all hearsay!!" Then direct witnesses testify, and in an attempt to fool the idiotic, the GOP turns it into "The WB lied! Expose his name!" Which is EXACTLY what the law is supposed to prevent. These people are so willing to violate...
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews @TheJusticeDept 5...any law, undermine government in any way, that they are willing to signal to all potential whistleblowers "Forget law. If you bring information against us, we will fuck over your life. We will send our maniacal supporters out to kill you or your family. We will destroy you...
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews @TheJusticeDept 6...why does this law exist? Does anyone remember all of the abuses by the intelligence agencies revealed by the Church Commission? There were no protections for anyone in the system who might reveal that, so this lawbreaking stayed secret for decades. The @GOP is working hard...
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews @TheJusticeDept @GOP undermine decades of legal precedent, of unified, bi-partisan efforts to protect those who expose wrongdoing, simply because this person *had the audacity to report information about a Republican." The long-term damage to this country by these short-sighted lawbreakers....
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews @TheJusticeDept @GOP 8...could be astronomical. I am terrified of the GOP. They have no boundaries, no rules, no abiding by law, no integrity, and a total willingness to ignore the Constitution when they dont like how it comes out. We are getting to the point where law-abiding Americans...
@DonaldJTrumpJr @BreitbartNews @TheJusticeDept @GOP 9...may have to take to the streets, like those in Hong Kong, to reclaim the benefits of Constitutional Democracy. Because if these people are allowed to go one more step, the power of autocracy may not be possible to overcome.…
