Trumpster's thought they'd found whistleblower-They were Wrong-Now person is getting death threats

Trumpkins Accused Him of Being the Whistleblower. They Were Wrong.
A former Obama staffer has been erroneously accused by the pro-Trump internet of blowing the whistle on the Ukraine affair. He didn’t. But now his life has been upended.


Former Obama White House staffer R. David Edelman woke up Thursday to a bizarre new reality: many people on the pro-Trump internet were convinced that he was the anonymous whistleblower at the heart of the impeachment proceedings.

And then the death threats started.

“There were people threatening real physical harm, alluding to the fact that I will not live very long,” Edelman said. “That was obviously upsetting for my family.”

Edelman, who is not the whistleblower, first became aware of his starring role in the new hoax with an email from a friend, who found a picture of Edelman on Twitter and thought it was funny. But Edelman soon realized his strange new problem was much bigger than that, after searching his name and “Obama whistleblower photo” on Twitter.

Tweets with photos of Edelman’s face surrounded by circles and arrows in a picture taken from his time at the White House were racking up tens of thousands of retweets.....................

1. They should sue him

I'd love to see him talk under oath.

5. Absolutely

I'm sure there are plenty of lawyers who would take his case for a cut of the settlement money. And there are lots of targets from Brietbart to Jr and everyone in between.

3. Scumbag conservatives are okay with this, even if people get killed, they are okay with this.

It's a process of elimination, point the finger at individuals until they've endangered everyone.

Like I said, conservatives, all conservatives, are scumbags.

8. tRump should be jailed for this, after being sued into oblivion.

Terrorist tRump. Trying to get his freak base to kill someone. He doesn't care if it's the wrong person. And fuck twitter and facebook for helping that fat pile of shit do this stuff.

9. They don't care if they get the right person...

As long as they name somebody, and that person’s life gets disrupted (or much worse), it’ll serve as a warning to other potential whistleblowers that “snitches get stitches.”
