Trump: Whistleblower must testify and be identified

“Adam Schiff now doesn’t seem to want the Whistleblower to testify. NO! Must testify to explain why he got my Ukraine conversation sooo wrong, not even close. Did Schiff tell him to do that? We must determine the Whistleblower’s identity to determine WHY this was done to the USA,” Trump tweeted.

“Given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower who wasn’t on the call to tell us what took place during the call,” Schiff told host Margaret Brennan during an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“Before the president started threatening the whistleblower … we were interested in having the whistleblower come forward. Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected,” he added.

The unidentified whistleblower’s lawyers have expressed concern for their client’s safety, given Trump’s comments.
