GOP senators clash over releasing whistleblower's identity

U.S. President Donald Trump is leading the efforts by some Republicans to unmask the whistleblower, a member of the U.S. intelligence community whose identity has not been released.

The U.S. official whose whistleblower complaint led to the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered to communicate directly with Republicans on the intelligence committee leading the inquiry, lawyer Mark Zaid said on Sunday.

Republicans have "sought to expose our client's identity which could jeopardize their safety, as well as that of their family," Zaid wrote on Twitter.
