Trump tweeted that the official, whose identity remains a secret, was a member of the "deep state" conspiracy he has argued is working to undermine his presidency.

"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 [Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). Keep them coming!" Trump tweeted.

Ron Johnson troubled by whistleblower allegation of records 'lock down'

  Ron Johnson troubled by whistleblower allegation of records 'lock down' “I would not be happy. We’ll find out exactly what transpired here," the Wisconsin senator says.In an interview, the Wisconsin Republican, pointed to a reporter’s copy of the whistleblower report, singling out page three, which alleged that White House officials treated records of the Zelensky call differently than other calls.

Intelligence official was interviewed by watchdog to corroborate initial complaint about Trump ’s dealings with Ukraine, report says.

Trump's referral to "shifty" Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, appeared to be a reference to Republican efforts to discredit House Democrats' impeachment inquiry as well as the first whistleblower to raise concerns about his conversations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Republicans have argued that the first whistleblower, who met with a member of Schiff's congressional staff before filing a complaint, is a partisan operative who did not have first-hand knowledge of Trump's conversations.

Democrats argue that a readout of Trump's July phone call with Zelensky, during which he repeatedly asked Zelensky to open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, proved the whistleblower's concerns to be true.

Ninety former national security officials are demanding the whistleblower at the center of allegations that sparked an impeachment inquiry into President Trump be protected. In an open letter to "the American people," first reported by the Wall Street Journal late Sunday, the former national security officials commend the whistleblower's actions and stress that the person went through the proper procedure to report the alleged wrongdoing.
