By The Blaze. The attorney representing the whistleblower who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump revealed Sunday that he is now representing a second whistleblower with “firsthand knowledge” of some of the allegations against the president.
Attorney Mark Zaid confirmed to ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos that the second whistleblower has firsthand knowledge of some of the allegations outlined in the first complaint. Like the first whistleblower, Zaid’s newest client is also an intelligence official. . .
The development is significant particularly because a second whistleblower could cast further doubt on Trump’s denials that he did anything wrong.
The New York Times first reported Friday that a second whistleblower was weighing whether to file his own complaint. According to the Times, the official had firsthand knowledge that corroborated information contained in the first complaint.
Zaid told the Washington Examiner on Sunday that the second whistleblower has not filed an official complaint because he “doesn’t need to.” Indeed, the Times reported that government officials who meet with inspectors general are “protected by federal law that outlaws reprisals.”
NEWS UPDATE: I can confirm this report of a second #whistleblower being represented by our legal team. They also made a protected disclosure under the law and cannot be retaliated against. This WBer has first hand knowledge. https://t.co/zYkUYgJ0mE

Attorney for Impeachment ‘Whistleblowers’ Actively Sought Trump Admin Informants
By Breitbart. Mark Zaid, the activist attorney representing the so-called whistleblower at the center of the impeachment movement targeting President Donald Trump, says he is representing a second so-called whistleblower who spoke to the Intelligence Community’s inspector general about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president.
Missing from the avalanche of news media coverage about Zaid’s two anonymous clients rocking the nation’s capital is that at the beginning of Trump’s presidency Zaid co-founded Whistleblower Aid, a small nonprofit that blasted advertisements around D.C. actively seeking whistleblowers during the Trump administration.
Whistleblower Aid is heavily tied to far-left activist organizations and Democratic politics.
ABC News broke the story on Sunday about the existence of the second so-called whistleblower speaking about Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. (Read more from “Attorney for Impeachment ‘Whistleblowers’ Actively Sought Trump Admin Informants” HERE)
