The whistleblower that came forward about President Donald Trump’s conversations with Ukraine is so afraid of his or her safety that they are now under federal protection, according to a letter “60 Minutes” received.
“’60 Minutes’ has obtained a letter that indicates the government whistleblower who set off the impeachment inquiry of President Trump is under federal protection because he or she fears for their safety,” said CBS News co-host Scott Pelly. “These rapidly developing events began Tuesday when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ordered the investigation based on a phone call between Mr. Trump and the president of Ukraine.”
Trump has spent the majority of the week lambasting the whistleblower, Democrats, national security staffers and anyone else possibly involved in the whistleblower account. He even lashed out at the whistleblower’s lawyers for being Democratic donors.
Trump has attacked the whistleblower’s patriotism for coming forward and accused him or her of being part of a spy network.
Trump’s fan base has already proven that they are willing to doxx a foe of the president’s to intimidate them. In the case of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, both before and after she testified about Justice Brett Kavanaugh she was receiving death threats and bomb threats. She was forced to move her family several times for safety.

President Donald Trump attempted to brand former Vice President Joe Biden as the candidate of "needless death" during a Friday night campaign rally in Pensacola, Florida.
"Biden is the candidate of endless wars and needless deaths," Trump argued, as coronavirus fatalities continue to mount.
"The United States is in the midst of one of the most severe surges of the coronavirus to date, with more new cases reported across the country on Friday than on any other single day since the pandemic began," The New York Times reported Friday.
Jared and Ivanka threaten to sue the Lincoln Project for ‘enormous’ damages over Times Square billboards on COVID: report
Attorneys representing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are threatening to sue the Lincoln Project over two Times Square billboards criticizing the administration's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Lincoln Project posted a copy of a letter sent by attorney Marc Kasowitz.
"I am writing concerning the false, malicious and defamatory ads that the Lincoln Project is displaying on billboards in Times Square," Kasowitz wrote.
"Those ads show Ms. Trump smiling and gesturing toward a death count of Americans and New Yorkers, and attribute to Mr. Kushner the statement that "[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that's their problem" (alteration in original), with body bags underneath," the letter read.
