2nd whistleblower comes forward after speaking with IG: Attorney

will he confirm that Rick Perry forced Trump to make the phone call?

2nd whistleblower comes forward after speaking with IG: Attorney
[abcnews.go.com]

Mark Zaid, the attorney representing the whistleblower who sounded the alarm on President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine and triggered an impeachment inquiry, tells ABC News that he is now representing a second whistleblower who has spoken with the inspector general.

Zaid tells ABC News' Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that the second person -- also described as an intelligence official -- has first-hand knowledge of some of the allegations outlined in the original complaint and has been interviewed by the head of the intelligence community's internal watchdog office, Michael Atkinson.

The existence of a second whistleblower -- particularly one who can speak directly about events involving the president related to conversations involving Ukraine -- could undercut Trump's repeated insistence that the original complaint, released on Sept. 26, was "totally inaccurate."

Now that it looks safe, expect far more people to come forward. Eventually his kids will be testifying to avoid jail. And this is how you take down a mob boss.

Despite their corrupt politically-appointed leaders like Mike Pompeo, there are many courageous patriots, people with integrity, working in the intelligence community. Thank God for them.

Otherwise there would be no impeachment inquiry happening right now.

What about the possibility this 2nd whistleblower is actually a Trump plant intended to undermine the investigation - "Rick Perry made him do it, and anyway it was a perfect call!" I hope that's not the case, but nothing is beyond the lawlessness this unpresidented administration's enablers will engage in for the sake of preserving their own image. (Not even power, they're willing to hurt their POWER and INFLUENCE to preserve their image to the rabid evangelible/gullicle base.)

I just watched Senator Johnson on Meet the Press dig up unfounded 2017 conspiracy theories in an attempt to not answer any question with regard to The Idiot's actions with Ukraine.

So long as there are Senator Johnsons, there will be no impeachment.

Rachel Maddow asked Amb. Susan Rice the obvious question during an interview last week: (paraphrasing)
Given what this president and his advisers are capable of, and knowing that the House will likely impeach but the Senate won't convict, how do we Americans protect ourselves against what he'll do for the remaining 12 months in office - including manipulating the 2020 election?

Rice's answer: vote

The 2nd Whistleblower was one of the first whistleblower's sources, so I doubt it would be a plant.

Good lord that was a sad nine minutes of a powerful man on the wrong side of history, making a fool of himself to defend the most corrupt person to ever occupy the WH.

Additionally, any whistleblower needs to be credible. Just picking up the phone and claiming to be a whistleblower spouting anything isn’t going to go far.

The Senate will have to jump all at once in order to protect themselves and delete Trump’s power over the Republican Party. What they will try to do first is more of the same: keep quiet, hope it doesn’t get worse, let the House impeach and let Mitch decline to convict.
