Trump Impeachment: 2nd Whistleblower Appears With First-Hand Info

A second whistleblower has comes forward, this one with first-hand information of the events that triggered an impeachment investigation of US President Donald Trump for alleged abuse of power, the informant's lawyer said on Sunday, 6 October.

The attorney, Mark Zaid, said on Twitter:

Earlier Sunday, Zaid's co-counsel, Andrew Bakaj, said his firm and team "represent multiple whistleblowers" in the case accusing Trump of using the powers of his office to pressure Ukraine's new President Volodymyr Zelensky over a phone call to investigate political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter.


It was unclear whether Bakaj was using "multiple" to refer to more than two whistleblowers.

Typically, several officials would listen in on a call between the president and a foreign leader.

The existence of a whistleblower claiming first-hand knowledge of the phone call would make it harder for the president and his supporters to dismiss the original complaint as hearsay.
