A thought about the whistle-blower

The New York Times is reporting that the whistle-blower is a C.I.A. analyst who was detailed to the White House. He has since returned to the C.I.A.

Trump has repeatedly denigrated the U.S. intelligence agencies and taken the words of foreign dictators over his own professionals. He debased the sacrifices of those honored at the C.I.A.'s Memorial Wall. He has ignored their tireless work and doesn't even read their reports let alone take their advice. Trump has no idea how hard and dangerous intelligence work is.

This must rankle our intelligence professionals. It is a measure of their collective honor and patriotism that until now, none have spoken out against Trump. This analyst waited until there was irrefutable evidence of wrong-doing and then he acted through the legal mechanism established for exactly this type of situation.

To the whistle-blower I say, well done, sir. Your country thanks you.

1. He, I'm guessing, provided cover for many other pros too

He must have heard talk about the phone call and either took this on out of duty or, as you say, defend intel/take a shot at Trump BUT in doing so he covered for all the sources he alluded to in the complaint.

My 2 cents.

3. The Trumpsters

will just cite this as evidence of the Deep State, and will demand that the whistleblower's name be revealed. I'm sure that just like Deep Throat of forty-five years ago, there will be a great curiosity among the press as to whose name it is.
