Sen. Blumenthal says 2nd whistleblower will add 'rocket fuel' to impeachment process

Posted: Updated:

A second whistleblower has come forward with information involving President Donald Trump.

The lawyer for the original whistleblower says he is now representing a second whistleblower.

The attorney says the individual has spoken to the Intelligence Community's internal watchdog and has information that supports the original whistleblower's complaint about Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

The new whistleblower is said to have "firsthand knowledge that supported" the original complaint.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal responded to the news saying the emergence of additional testimony "will add rocket fuel to the impeachment process."

Trump took to Twitter and said, "The first so-called second hand information "Whistleblower" got my phone conversation almost completely wrong, so now word is they are going to the bench and another "Whistleblower" is coming in from the Deep State, also with second hand info. Meet with Shifty. Keep them coming!"

 The original whistleblower complained the president was "Using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country" in the 2020 U.S. election.
