Sen. Rand Paul demanded the press print the name of the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment inquiry during a Trump rally Monday night in Kentucky.

Joining the President on stage, the Kentucky Republican said “We also now know the name of the whistleblower. The whistleblower needs to come forward as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs.”

 

 

His comment was swiftly condemned across Twitter.

 

 

Paul’s call for publicly naming the whistleblower is at odds with the Republican’s repeated insistence that he is a libertarian in favor of individual liberty.
