Continuing his quest to endanger alleged whistleblower’s life, Rand Paul names him in Senate speech

871

Sen. Rand Paul continues to be a flaming heap of whistleblower-outing trash. Whistleblowers are protected for reasons that an alleged libertarian like Paul should appreciate—that protection encourages people to come forward when they see something wrong in government. But after Chief Justice John Roberts refused to read Paul’s question naming the person who Republicans believe to have been the whistleblower on Donald Trump’s impeachable Ukraine call, Paul took matters into his own hands.

He’s already read the question, with the name, to reporters. But apparently he didn’t get enough attention for that, so on Tuesday, Paul brought a large poster of his question up with him as he made a floor speech in the Senate, during which he read the question.

To recap: the chief justice refused to read Paul’s question because it named a rumored whistleblower, possibly endangering that person. Paul then held a news conference to read the same question, and then, as if he hadn’t done enough, read it on the Senate floor while standing before it printed on a large poster, for anyone watching C-SPAN to hear and see.

Paul has insisted that this is all innocent because he doesn’t know that this is the whistleblower, he just happens to be asking lengthy questions about a random person whose name hasn’t come up in the impeachment for … reasons. I think we know the reason, and the reason is that Rand Paul is a terrible piece of human trash and he’s part of a political party that rewards that.

Can he be prosecuted under the law for possibly endangering the safety of his suspected whistleblower and their families, friends, etc with this idiotic stunt that clearly illustrates what a complete moron he is?
Case in point, one of Trumps wingnut supporters taking matters into their own hand by the wingnut who threatened Adam Shif

We all know why Rand Paul’s neighbor kicked his ass. He found out a long time ago what an ass he is! Don’t be surprised if if happens again.

Rand Paul you blustering no good senator. You will pay for it come November. You must enjoy working for an idiot moron like Trump and be under the thumb of Moscow Mitch who probably paid you off.

He is worse than pond scum”. Does he not know he could become the victim?
There are crazy people on all sides and he just might offend someone who is supporting the whistle blower. And more importantly he could be naming someone who is not the whistle blower and putting him or her-in danger”. Like donnie he is a sad pathetic coward acting like a bully. No one likes bullies and eventually they find themselves alone.

Not a whistleblower. He heard hearsay and had ties to prominent democrats. I would call him more of a snitch. Additionally, past presidents including Obama have withheld aid for various reasons.
