Thread: Democrats hypocrisy on whistleblowers

    Democrats hypocrisy on whistleblowers

    As Rand Paul has called for the naming of the whistleblower at center of impeachment proceedings against Trump I thought it was hypocritical of the Democrats now screaming for whistleblower protections because when they were in power we had Chelsea Manning who was actually jailed and discharged from the military and of course Edward Snowden who blew the whistle on Clapper et al. and had to flee to Russia because Obama wanted hto execute him!

    The same Democrats that went after Manning and Snowden when Obama was in office are now calling for stringent protections against whistleblowers (including allowing them to be anonymous) which makes the Democrats hypocrites!

    Haven't studied the issue in detail but on the surface, Rand's position also appears to be evolving a bit if this is factual reporting:

    “We also now know the name of the whistleblower,” said Paul, who actually expressed support for expanding the whistleblower statute during the Obama years, as Trump stood behind him.
    There is prediction from former WH communications dir Mooch (sic) that GOP Senators would slowly start ditching MAGA after Gov candidate he rallied for lost in KY, would Rand continue to stand with him?

    Yes.. it's the same with War. They used to be antiwar now they're Pro-War because Trump is in the White House.
