ABC, CBS Push Claim Trump Is Threatening the Life of ‘Whistleblower’

In another blatant attempt by the liberal media to drum up resentment against President Trump with more false reporting, Monday’s edition of ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News featured reports claiming the President was putting the life of the so-called “whistleblower” behind the Ukraine phone complaint, at risk.

Both began their programs with over-the-top hyperbolic opening teases, with ABC anchor David Muir proclaiming: “Tonight, fast-moving developments. The President says he is now trying to find out the identity of the whistleblower. Saying, “I deserve to meet my accuser.” It comes amid increasing concern over the whistleblower's security.

“Tonight breaking news from Washington. House Democrats subpoena President Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. How investigators are using his recent TV appearances to ask for documents. Plus, new concerns over the whistleblower's safety. Is his or her life in danger,” failing CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell said for her part.

After again twisting the “favor” Trump asked the president of Ukraine about, and without mentioning the fact that the whistleblower was represented by an anti-Trump organization, Muir pushed their claim “the President’s own words” were putting their client’s life at risk.
