Why do conservatives think the Federal Whistleblower Protection Act exists if not to protect whistleblowers from retaliation?

The Whistleblower Protection Act exists precisely for situations like this. Don't like it? Then leave America.

    The most bizarre thing is the Republican controlled Congress wrote those protections. They also wrote the rules that the House is following for the Benghazi hearings.

    It protects the whistleblower from retaliation not from scrutiny.

      Vindman read from his last evaluation, which disproves Jordan's accusation. He did lie Dorothy.

    Republicans can’t argue the evidence so they focus on other things. Process, and knowing who the whistleblower is. Never mind that it doesn’t matter who he/she was any longer. I think Trump and his sycophants just yearn to harass the person. Therefore, the Whistleblower Act, which they simply ignore.

      Watch the hearings and you’ll hear evidence too! Or continue getting stupid talking points from Trump State Media. That seems more your speed.

    It is laughable that they're claiming the WB would not be in harm's way once their name is public.
