9. You and kgfnally raise a difficult question ...
which is why she isn't talking.

Is it because she is law abiding and won't violate a gag order?

Is it because she is afraid of the penalty?

Is it because she believes the process will eventually work, and that she could jeopardize ongoing investigatoins?

Is she concerned that the RW MSM won't actually pick up her story no matter how explosive and well documented?

Is it because she would violate the order and accept penalties but is afraid of more severe, non legal penalties like being found "suicided"?

Is she in greater danger by not talking?

All of the above?

On the process idea, it just seems to me the very essence of a whistle blower is someone who has tried the official channels and decided to go outside existing processes directly to the people through the press.
