The second whistleblower of US President Donald Trump in the case associated with the scandalous conversation of the White House with Ukrainian
President Vladimir Zelensky spoke about the circumstances of the case to the Inspector-General of intelligence services in the country Michael Atkinson. Mark Zaid-a lawyer representing the interests of both whistleblowers announced it on Sunday, October 6, on the American TV channel ABC.
According to Zaid, his new client is an official from the circles of intelligence services and, unlike the first informant, is familiar “first-hand” with some of the circumstances described in the complaint of the first whistleblower related to Trump’s telephone conversation with Zelensky. If so, it could lead to a reconsideration of Trump’s claim that the information in the complaint was “completely inaccurate.”
Both Trump’s whistleblowers are under the protection of the law
According to Zaid, both whistleblowers are under the protection of the law, which will not allow their dismissal out of revenge. According to ABC, while the second whistleblower did not communicate with representatives of the committees of the US Congress investigating the case.
On Friday, The New York Times, citing two anonymous sources, reported that another representative of the intelligence services is considering the possibility to file a complaint in the case related to the conversation between Trump and Zelensky, and to testify in Congress. For its part, ABC says it does not know whether the new client of lawyer Mark Zaid is the person previously reported by The New York Times.
