Rand Uses Constitution to Justify Identifying Whistleblower
Article from The Daily Caller by Virginia Kruta.
Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul brought up the Constitution and the Sixth Amendment when a reporter challenged his efforts to publicly reveal the identity of the whistleblower whose allegations kicked off a renewed interest in impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Paul addressed the question Tuesday after taking the stage at Trump’s Monday rally in his home state and demanding that the press publish the whistleblower’s name.
Question: "Your colleagues, Republicans, say that it's irresponsible and dangerous for your call to out the whistleblower."

Paul went on to explain that the Sixth Amendment included the right of the accused to confront any accusers, suggesting that allowing the whistleblower to remain anonymous would then be a de facto denial of Trump’s Sixth Amendment rights.
Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham also argued that the whistleblower was not guaranteed anonymity, telling reporters, “The whistleblower statute was never meant to give you anonymity. It was meant to allow you to come forward without being fired.”

There you have it . Tell this weasel to show his (her) face.
The “Whistleblower” is actually a leaker. Lt. Col. Vindman should be court marshaled and Eric Ciaramella should be jailed as an Barack Obama-John Brennan spy.
Regardless they do NOT have a right to remain anonymous. EVERYONE has the right to face their accuser.
Charge Eric with lying and false reports.
How can we believe an unidentified individual?
Leave that kind of nonsense to the New York Times!
WAY TO GO, RAND PAUL!!! Expose these lying leftist criminals. Then put them on trial and sentence them for treason and send them to a hard federal prison for 30 years and make sure they serve every year of it too!!
The democrats aren’t afraid because they have the judiciary in their pocket. It’ll be a miracle if any of these butt-faced liars are charged with perjury.
I’m willing to set up a job for Shifty Shiftless and Crookalosi when they get out of prison for all the illegal activities (treason, lying, etc.) I’ve talked to Waste Management and they’re willing to give Shifty and Puglosy jobs working on the same truck. They should be good at slinging garbage based on their past experience in DC. The jobs are waiting for them in Mexico City, if and when they are released from the chain gang.
If some weasel can start rumors then the rest of us have a right to know who they are–and they better go around in their head cover because some one will blast them to meet their mentor the devil!
