The orange does not fall far from the orange tree. This morning Donald Trump Jr. picked up the rich request nugget his father dropped. The president has been directing his attention to outing the whistleblower who filed the complaint that sparked an impeachment inquiry. The whistleblower’s identity no longer matters, because the Democrats have the same evidence from closer witnesses. This is what Don Jr. did.
In an ongoing attempt to win his father’s attention, the president’s eldest son outed the whistleblower via tweet:
‘I love the outrage about me tweeting an article about the “alleged” whistleblower… also good to know you have other sources confirming.
‘Those thinking I coordinated with The White House to tweet out a @BreitbartNews article haven’t been watching my feed much. Didn’t happen!”

The whistleblower’s attorney released this formal statement on protecting his/her identity:

Congress reporter for POLITICO Kyle Cheney tweeted about the whistleblower’s attorney’s response:

Tuesday night libertarian Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tweeted out an article giving a near-complete detailed message about who the whistleblower might be. The Daily Beast reported that he included:
‘[A] photograph, a name, and details about the purported political history of a CIA professional—Russian state media quickly followed suit.’
Nearly in tandem, the Moscow-controlled RT, TASS, and Rossiya released the same information. However, even the Russian-owned media did not include the source. It did claim erroneously that the information had been in The Washington Post originally.
Russia has been a strong supporter of Donald Trump and has worked hard to fight against the impeachment inquiry. Fox News hosts have gone with the U.S. president’s talking points.
Host of the Russian-owned television show Evening with Vladimir Soloview joked:
‘Have you lost your minds that you want to remove our Donald Ivanovych?’
