Donald Trump was caught on the camera raging over the whistleblower in a closed door meeting where he compared the CIA agent and his source with spies and even suggested that their actions might amount to treason

The whistleblower of the intelligence service who helped unmask Donald Trump's call to the Ukrainian president and which led to a political fire storm, now fears for their lives, their lawyer said.

Andrew Bakaj, whistleblower's chief lawyer, said he & # 39; has serious concerns about the personal safety of our client & # 39; after Trump's act of exposing him to & # 39; betrayal & # 39; had compared and suggested using the death penalty.

He also revealed the existence of a & # 39; bounty & # 39; of $ 50,000 offered for & # 39; all information & # 39; about the whistleblower, known as an ex-CIA agent.

In a letter to Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, seen by Dailymail.com, Mr. Bakaj suggests that the whistleblower has been placed under federal protection and thanks the director for safeguarding their safety & # 39 ;.

The existence of the call prompted Democrats to launch an investigation into accusations in Trump, with house commissions from delegates from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who had ties with Trump this week.

Whistleblower lawyers who emphasized a call between Donald Trump and the Ukrainian Vlodomir Zelensky say they are scared of their lives and under federal protection after the President deeds as & # 39; betrayal & # 39; has described and proposed the use of the death penalty

He wrote: & # 39; The purpose of this letter is to formally inform you of serious concerns we have regarding the personal safety of our customer.

& # 39; We appreciate the support of your office so far to activate suitable means to ensure their safety.

& # 39; The events of the past week have heightened our concern that our customer's identity will be made public and that as a result our customer will be compromised. On September 26, 2019, the President of the United States said the following:

& # 39; I want to know who the person who gave the whistleblower is, who is the person who gave the whistleblower the information, because that is close to a spy. Do you know what we used to do when we were smart? Turn right? With spies and betrayal, right? We used to handle it slightly differently than now. & # 39;

& # 39; The fact that the President's statement was addressed to & # 39; the person who gave the whistleblower the information does not alter our concern about the safety of our client.

& # 39; In addition, certain people have a & # 39; bounty & # 39; of $ 50,000 spent for & # 39; all information regarding the identity of our customer.

& # 39; Unfortunately, we expect this situation to worsen and become even more dangerous for our client and other whistleblowers, as Congress wants to investigate this matter. & # 39;

However, Mark S Zaid, part of the legal team representing the whistleblower, accused 60 minutes of & # 39; misinterpreting the contents of our letter & # 39; without saying which parts of the report he disputes.

& # 39; Nor, as we stated earlier today, have we reached agreement with Congress on contact with the whistleblower. Discussions are ongoing, & he added.

The House Intelligence Committee has said it will be ready to move from the whistleblower & # 39; very soon & # 39; heard at a private meeting to hide their identity.

The existence of the letter was first revealed by CBS & # 39; s 60 minutes after Trump said he has the right to meet the person who initiated an accusation probe against him.

Trump places pastor again and says that deposition & # 39; a civil war-like breach & # 39; will cause

President Trump tweeted a quote from a Baptist pastor on Sunday saying that his resignation would cause a civil war-like breach … of which our country will never heal & # 39 ;.

Trump's tweet quoted Pastor Robert Jeffress, who appeared early in the Fox & Friends show of Fox News Channel on Sunday morning.

Jeffress, an evangelist who fervently supports the president, is the Southern Baptist pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas.

The church, of which the church counts 13,000, is considered one of the most influential in the American evangelical community.

"Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats cannot quit the Impeachment competition," Jeffress told Fox News.

& # 39; They know they couldn't beat him in 2016 against Hillary Clinton, and they are increasingly aware of the fact that they won't win against him in 2020, and Impeachment is the only tool they need to to get rid of Donald J. Trump.

& # 39; And the Democrats don't care if they burn this country down and destroy it. & # 39;

Trump is fighting the deepest crisis of his presidency and does not claim to be accused of urging Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, his potential 2020 White House challenger.

& # 39; Like any American, I deserve to meet my prosecutor, especially when this prosecutor, the so-called & # 39; Whistleblower & # 39 ;, represented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a completely inaccurate and fraudulent manner, & # 39; Trump wrote in a tweet Sunday.

Trump accused top-democratic legislator Adam Schiff of lying to Congress last week about what Trump said to Zelensky in the July call.

& # 39; He wrote and read terrible things, then said it came from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff to be interrogated at the highest level for fraud and betrayal, he wrote.

Trump's Republican assistants have tried to turn the table for Democrats who insist on his accusation, insisting that the president be the real & # 39; whistleblower & # 39; was because he had asked Ukraine to investigate Biden and his son for corruption.

& # 39; This person is a saboteur trying to undermine a democratically elected government & # 39 ;, Trump adviser Stephen Miller insisted on Fox News Sunday.

& # 39; Understanding a corruption scandal in Ukraine is in the US national interest. & # 39;

Trump & # 39; s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani – who emerged as his point-man in the Ukrainian scandal – led the indictment along with Miller in combative talk shows on Sunday.

Waving what he said, sworn statements from Biden & # 39; s son Hunter about his work at a Ukrainian company, Giuliani said that Trump was obliged to raise the issue with Kiev.

& # 39; If he had not asked them to investigate Biden, he would have violated the constitution, & # 39; Giuliani said to ABC & # 39; s this week and claimed that & # 39; Donald Trump was framed by the Democrats. & # 39;

The Democratic-led House of Representatives launched an official investigation into Trump's accusation of a & # 39; mafia-like shakedown & # 39; van Zelensky aimed at damaging Biden.

Trump and his allies claim that Biden, as vice-president of Barack Obama, has pressured Kiev to fire the best prosecutor to protect his son Hunter, who was on the board of a gas company, Burisma Holdings, accused of corrupt practices.

These accusations have largely been debunked and there is no evidence of illegal behavior or misconduct in Ukraine by the Bidens.

But a transcript of the call in July shows that Trump is urging Kiev to revisit the case and says that both Giuliani and US Attorney General Bill Barr would keep in touch.

For Democrats, that amounted to a smoking gun, so speaker Nancy Pelosi finally approved an accusation trial that opposed her as a risky distraction from the 2020 fight.

Pelosi on Sunday called on Trump to tell the truth. Honor your oath of office to the constitution of the United States. & # 39;

& # 39; Do not make this worse than it already is, & # 39; she said.

Democrats conducted the investigation aggressively, instructing State Secretary Mike Pompeo to hand over Ukraine-related documents and schedule witness statements.

At NBC & # 39; s Meet the Press, Schiff said he expected the whistleblower & # 39; very soon & # 39; would testify – with all precautions taken to protect their identity.

CBS News has issued a letter from the whistleblower lawyer to the acting director of the national intelligence service expressing her concern that their & # 39; client is being compromised & # 39 ;.

& # 39; We expect this situation to worsen and become even more dangerous & # 39 ;, said the letter calling for & # 39; appropriate means to ensure their safety & # 39 ;.

Democrats have said that accusation articles – formal charges – against Trump can be completed in just one month and can vote quickly in Parliament, where the party has a majority.

The Biden campaign sent a letter to American TV networks on Sunday demanding that they stop booking Giuliani for interviews, accusing him of & # 39; knowingly & # 39; to lie.

Polls suggest that public support for accusation investigation is growing, with a new CBS survey showing that 55 percent of Americans – and nine in ten Democrats – approve it.

But even if deposition is approved in the House, Trump would be tried in the Senate – where he seems to be able to count on a Republican majority to prevent conviction.

Elsewhere on Sunday, President Trump tweeted a quote from a Baptist pastor who said that his resignation would cause a civil war-like breach … of which our country will never heal & # 39 ;.

& # 39; And the Democrats don't care if they burn this country down and destroy it. & # 39;

When asked about the response of evangelical Christians to the possibility of an accusation against Trump, Jeffress replied: "I have never seen evangelical Christians more angry about an issue than this attempt to illegally remove this president from office." to overthrow the 2016 elections, and deny the votes of millions of evangelicals in the process.

"They know that the only untouchable fact that President Trump has committed has defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.

"That is the unforgivable sin for which the Democrats will never forgive him.

"If the Democrats succeed in removing the president from his office (which they will never be), this will cause a civil war-like breach in this country from which our country will never heal."
