Second Whistle-Blower Over Trump and Ukraine
The second whistle-blower is said to have firsthand knowledge of President Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

WASHINGTON -- An intelligence official with "firsthand knowledge" has provided information related to President Trump's dealings with Ukraine and is now protected from retaliation as a whistle-blower, lawyers representing the official said on Sunday, confirming that a second individual has come forward in the matter.

Much is unknown about the official, who has been interviewed by the intelligence community's inspector general but has not filed a formal complaint.

But the individual has hired the same legal team as the first whistle-blower. That, and the claim of "firsthand knowledge," suggests testimony that might bolster the impeachment case against Mr. Trump and further undermine one of his main defense claims: that the accusations against him are based on inaccurate, secondhand information.
