Trump's son tweets name of alleged anonymous whistle-blower who triggered impeachment inquiry

Trump speaks to reporters upon arrival at the White House in Washington

Rand Paul (R-Ky.) blocked a resolution to reaffirm whistleblower protections, saying that Democrats are guilty of "selective outrage".

On the contrary, the Republicans have painted the Whistleblower as a supporter of the Democratic Party and lacked direct information or knowledge about the July 25 call made by Trump.

According to CNN Thursday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told reporters that Republicans will request that the House Intelligence Committee force the whistleblower to testify publicly.

"Wow, that was excellent", Trump said as Paul left the stage.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) initially voiced support to have the whistleblower testify since their complaint started the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Hirono objected to Paul's actions, claiming his bill "was just dropped on my lap literally just now", adding that she was "flabbergasted" by the section applying the Sixth Amendment to impeachment proceedings.

Zidane admits the weekend visitors are a good team but says his side were superior in every way possible, reiterating they only lacked a goal.

As Republicans call for the whistleblower to be outed (despite their legal entitlement to anonymity), Paul took the reins on Monday night when he appeared with Trump at a rally and demanded that the media release the whistleblower's name.

More details in Congress' impeachment enquiry into Donald Trump are expected to be released on Wednesday, a day after transcripts revealed a top Trump donor-turned-diplomat reversed course and told investigators Ukrainian aid was tied to probes of political rivals sought by the USA president. He tweeted on October 31 calling for the whistleblower to be subpoenaed and asked under oath about Hunter Biden and corruption. The Kentucky lawmaker is now proposing his own legislation, which would let President Trump face his accuser.

"It's a kill-the-messenger approach", said Jackie Garrick, who is the founder of Whistleblowers of America.

"I'm more than willing to, and I probably will at some point", he said.

"I say tonight to the media, do your occupation and print his name".
