So essentially Trump is trying to out not only the whistleblower but also their sources so that his minions can dig up something to discredit them, or perhaps something even worse.

Tonight, “60 Minutes” has obtained a letter that indicates the government whistleblower who set off the impeachment inquiry of President Trump is under federal protection, because he or she fears for their safety.

Can’t really blame them.

At this point it should be job one for federal law enforcement to protect this whistleblower and keep them from having their lives destroyed by Trump and his flying monkeys. 

While Trump is baying at the moon members of his White House staff are working to patch together a defense that will keep the Democrats from dragging him out of the Oval Office by his bone spurs.

Top White House aides plan to present President Donald Trump with a wide-ranging response strategy to the growing threat of impeachment in the coming days, following a week of mixed messaging and growing anxiety within Trump’s circle of advisers.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and White House counsel Pat Cipollone will be among those who present the president with the plan for a rapid-response effort that could come as early as Monday, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Within the White House there has been a growing acknowledgement that a coordinated legal, political, and public relations messaging response is needed to help Trump as it becomes clear he is facing what may be the greatest threat to his presidency so far.

Trump himself declared “we are at war” during a closed-door speech to diplomats at the United Nations, with some aides describing the response effort as a war room fashioned after the Clinton White House’s response. But others are trying to downplay the seriousness of the threat, side-stepping the war room terminology.

“I just went through a war, this is a skirmish,” said Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow, who helped guide Trump through the Mueller investigation.

Jay Sekulow can puff his skinny chest out to show faux confidence all day long, but from Trump’s tweets we can already smell the kind of desperation that trapped animals give off when they are deciding whether to chew off a leg or just accept the sweet embrace of death.
