    Anyone with a logical reason for outing the whistleblower other than to punish him?

    The GOP and Trump want to out the whistleblower and WHY? When the whistleblower's report came out the first thing that the GOP and Trump said was since the WB had no direct knowledge of what was said in the telephone call and thus his testimony if he was to give one would be nothing but hear say. So if he has no direct knowledge and his testimony would be "nothing" but hear say and thus worthless, why have him testify. The report he gave has been proven by other people who had knowledge of the telephone call and what happened before and after the call, including the president himself and Mulvaney. SO, my question to those out there is why have the WB testify except to out him so he can be punished. There have been death threats for the WB and his family by people unknown, but certainly they would have to be by those who support the president. The reason the WB law was put in place was to keep the identity of the WB safe and to insure that those who saw suspected wrong doing in our government could report it and have it investigated as was done in this case. SO give me a logical reason for outing the WB as would happen of any of the GOPers on the committee would learn of the WB's identity? Just another question, can you tell me with a straight face that if Nunes or Jordan discovered the identity of the WB, they would not report it directly to the president who wold happen to let it slip in his very next meeting with the press?

    I'd say some Republicans want the WB taken out.

    No, they don't. Sad to see that someone would be so laughably misinformed as to actually assert they do.

    Revealing the WB's name might also shed light on why he or she whistleblew. Was it for noble "Trump is destroying the republic!" purposes, or was it purely partisan "this'll finally bring him down!" reasons?

    Maybe even hurt Biden in the process since it breathed new life into the story about Biden abusing his office to get his idiot son a sinecure which was clearly a bribe, payoff for something, or just buying influence.

    In any case the WB's identity is already known to those in power. This is one of those secrets that is being kept from ordinary people - from me. I don't like it when the government keeps secrets from me and then tells me its for my own good.

    One reason is to establish his credibility.

    He claims to have 2nd and 3rd hand hearsay from individuals and has reported in his complaint what they said. Is he telling the truth? Did people really say that stuff? Heck, do those people actually exist? Or did he create them?

    Another reason is to establish his motive.

    Also, to find out if this entire complaint was his idea...or did someone else put him up to it.

    I would also ask him what he knows about the actions of the ICIG in connection to his complaint...and then I'd call in the ICIG and ask HIM a few questions. After that, it would be Schiffty's turn in the barrel.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    I said a logical argument. That one is neither logical or lawful. There is no such right in our constitution and to out him violates the law and his testimony would be by the GOP's definition, hear say and thus worthless. Now try logic please.
