    They don't know the law.  LOL   A whistleblower deserves protection from retaliation, but that doesn't include anonymity.   LOL  Here is the text of the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989.  LOL

    Because they aren't fake and whistleblower protections are a thing.

    You really think some among your ranks would not take it upon themselves to hurt him/her? Esp with the fact that Trump would undoubtedly incite it with this crap comments? Yeah, some people know this is fully possible and that the whistleblower's anonymity is important for that reason.

    Schiff has enough bad press, being revealed as the actor making false claims, (again), would be too much for him.

    Schiff is the Wizard of Oz.

    Don't look behind the curtain.

    Wat started it all?  It is illegal to investigate a Democrat while a candidate for federal office

    The Confrontation Clause of the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that "in all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right…to be confronted with the witnesses against him."

    Whistleblower rights and protections were initially addressed by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. In 1989, Congress passed the Whistleblower Protection Act to “strengthen and improve protection for the rights of federal employees, to prevent reprisals, and to help eliminate wrongdoing within the Government.”

    Schiff is not a Civil Servant.

    The Supreme Court in an unanimous decision recognized the “importance” of protecting speech when “public corruption” is at issue, ... protects Only TRUTHFUL Testimony.

    Federal law limits it to the IG.  The people who wrote that law probably thought a scumbag like Trump would never become President and try to violate the spirit of the law by endangering a whistle blower and making it threatening to future whistle blowers.  That is why it is only illegal for the IG since there was the assumption people would have the decency to not go around the IG.  Trump and his suckers have shown just how wrong that thinking was with their lack of decency.

    Revealing the whistleblower's name would make him/her susceptible to retaliation. That is exactly what the Whistleblower Protection Act seeks to prevent.
