Top Senate Intel Dem Says Trump’s Comments Put Whistleblower’s Safety at Risk: ‘Any Rational Person Would Be Concerned’

 

Senator Mark Warner is very alarmed by President Donald Trump‘s public attacks on the intel whistleblower, and said everyone should be concerned about the whistleblower’s safety after being targeted by the president like that.

In comments to CNN’s Manu Raju, Warner said everyone, including his Republican colleagues, should be “calling out the president’s outrageous comments.”

He’s worried about the “chilling effect” Trump’s words will have, and when asked about the whistleblower’s safety, said, “Any rational person would be concerned about the whistleblower’s safety after the president’s comments.”

On Twitter this afternoon Warner said Trump’s attacks on the whistleblower are “dangerous” and “will do serious damage far beyond this news cycle.”
