Rand Paul Goes On Rant Saying Trump ‘Deserves’ To Know Whistleblower ID

rand-paul-on-whistleblower

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest defenders in the Senate, claimed this week that the whistleblower who exposed the president should “come forward” since his complaint has lead to an impeachment inquiry of Trump.

“Ultimately, if someone’s going to accuse you of something that’s going to bring down a presidency, I think we deserve to know who that person is,” Paul told reporters in Kentucky on Tuesday.

“I think there are reasons to have whistleblower statutes, and have anonymity. But if you’re accusing somebody of something with the ramifications of impeachment, I think really the person ought to come forward,” he added.

Exposing the whistleblower’s identity is a speaking point that began with Trump, who said this week that his people are “trying to find out” the identity of the whistleblower.

He doubled down in a tweet on Tuesday, reiterating that he wants to meet the whistleblower.

“Why aren’t we entitled to interview & learn everything about the Whistleblower, and also the person who gave all of the false information to him,” he tweeted.
