    If the whistleblower has nothing to say, i.e. Schiff and sundry have nothing to fear from his/her testimony, then there should be no concerns about this accuser facing the accused. Whistleblower protections are in place to protect such people (as long as they themselves broke no laws) from retaliation.
    The whistle blower is not an accuser. The WB became aware of something that didn't seem right. Following proper protocol, the WB reported what he/she had learned to the appropriate authority within his agency. That is the full and complete role the WB played. At that point it was the responsibility of those he reported to, to investigate the situation and determine if there was any merit to the claims. This was the case.

    It is as if you're saying a person was told there was a hit-and-run auto accident and they called the police who investigated and found there was indeed a hit-and-run accident, now the person who called it in must appear in court to testify. Why? What probative value is there?

    The GOP want to distract us from the facts, the real issues at hand. There is nothing the WB can tell us that will bring anyone closer to the truth. They simply want to attack this individual for appearances, nothing more. And it is driving Trump crazy knowing he can't attack if he doesn't know who it is.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited President Donald Trump to testify in front of investigators in the House impeachment inquiry ahead of a week that will see several key witnesses appear publicly.

    Pushing back against accusations from the president that the process has been stacked against him, Pelosi said Trump is welcome to appear or answer questions in writing, if he chooses.
    ================================================== ========
    If Trump feels that he's being treated unjustly, it's only right that the Dems give him a chance to dig an even deeper hole for his own burial. He tells so many lies that he cannot possibly remember them all.
    Trump is a damn coward and would never show up to testify under oath. He’s only “brave” behind the keys of his cell phone.

    Sounds about right. What would be interesting to hear is how it is a coup when the supposed target is invited to clear up the whistleblower's complaint as well as shedding some light on the testimony thus far.

    Why? Because some wack job right wing radio knob says so? Or because Donald Jr. agrees? The fact is Trump wants to get even with this son-of-a-bitch and he can't right now.
    I think you've brought up some valid criticism of the "Deep State." I'm going to mention that at our next meeting.

    The evidence is the call itself, and the held up aid. It is terrible when such simple matters make life complicated eh?

    And does believing that you know his identity change the fact that Trump extorted a foreign country to interfere in our election?

    None of your other questions matter.

    In the first place, this action in Congress is primarily political. One Party, acting clearly along partisan lines, is seeking to oust a seated President via impeachment. That means any and all political ramifications of such an action come into play.
    Actually only the basis for impeachment comes into play and that is the call and the held up aid, all well documented and supported.
