WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. authorities have taken security measures to protect a U.S. intelligence official who filed a whistleblower complaint that sparked an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, a source familiar with the case told Reuters.

Lawyers for the whistleblower expressed concern in a Sept. 28 letter to the acting director of National Intelligence, Joseph Maguire, that their client’s safety could be at risk after Trump suggested he was a spy who had committed treason.

The article goes on to state the following:

They said certain individuals had offered a $50,000 “bounty” for any information on the whistleblower’s identity after the official complained to a government watchdog that Trump had pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 phone call to investigate his political rival, Joe Biden.

      If Schiff knows who this is then President Trump has a right to know who his accusers are also. I’m betting it will leak out to media anyway, but to have to use voice disguise, it’s probably a well known voice . I’m betting it’s schiff or a well known member of Congress. If you have to hide something you’ve done then it wasn’t right in the first place. So sick of the Democrats!

        Frances Ball, yes I believe it’s Shifty too. He wrote it, lied about it, and wants protection, and I say a thousand times no he doesn’t get protection. It’s a Democrat anyway so why would i protect him. They brought it all on themselves by lying and digging up faults claims. Just another trip down a wild road. Keep draining the swamp. We still have Obamers people in Washington trying to ease drop on our awesome President.
