Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently put President Donald Trump on notice about any possible retaliation against the whistleblower who filed a complaint against Trump. Pelosi warned: “I will make sure he does not intimidate the whistleblower. I was there. I told the President, you’re in my wheelhouse when you come after the whistleblower.”

But where was this love for whistleblowers during President Barack Obama’s administration? Obama remains enormously popular among Democrats. But many in the how-dare-President-Trump-attack-a-whistleblower camp paid little attention to Obama’s unprecedented attack on whistleblowers, as well as on the reporters who reported on their whistleblowing.
