A second whistleblower has come 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.
"I can confirm this report of a second #whistleblower being represented by our legal team," Mark Zaid said on Twitter. "They also made a protected disclosure under the law and cannot be retaliated against. This WBer has first-hand knowledge."
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 Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.
