Just a thought. How can the Whistleblower be receiving death threats, when he is anonymous?

    There's this thing called "character assassination". You cannot deny that an army of right wing operatives would dig deep into this persons life looking for anything to discredit them. This person and their family do not deserve to be raked over the coals for no other reason than for the right to cloud the issue and intimidate a witness.

    I'm sorry if your memory is failing. Perhaps you should talk to your doctor about that.

    Well, without scrutiny you are in fact supporting the very issue you are concerned about, but, this is an attack on a duly elected President! He cannot defend himself, people cannot ask questions and motivations because, well, the secret accuser must remain so?

    In effect, the President, his supporters and the ability of his government to do their job for the people is impaired and harmed by what is, at this point, a groundless accusation.

    In politics or in a courtroom, we can't operate on the "Honor System" where any allegation is accepted as fact. He needs to come out and stand by his allegation in the open. Of course he will be scrutinized, it's politics and he could simply be a political plant or hyper partisan. Just as in the Kavanaugh Hearing, motivate will be and should be flushed out.

    The threat is addressed to the as yet unknown person Trump is trying so hard to expose.

    it was a rhetorical statement. A public threat of terror was conducted with no consequence. By the way, other politicians got in the act also, and I am willing to bet more people wearing a MAGA hat have been assaulted or maybe even killed than any dudes wearing a pink bonnet.

    Dang, so if you happen to be watching a John Wayne or Clint Eastwood movie, do you hide under the bed?

    The outrage was because they didn't go to jail for their threats.

    Trump will have every opportunity to answer any impeachment charges when it gets to trial in the Senate. Crooks don't get to have their lawyers involved while cops investigate a crime. They have to wait until it gets to court.

    I'm not sure what any kind of hat has to do with this subject.
