    We’ve all seen that the “hypocritical dichotomy between the treatments of high-level, politically connected officials versus lower-level whistleblowers has never been more pronounced.”

    “Fortunately, as demonstrated by Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley’s and Oregon Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden’s newly launched Senate Whistleblower Caucus, protecting the nation’s truth-tellers transcends congressional partisanship. Instead of offering support to disgraced former officials, Congress should follow the caucus’ lead and focus on the heroic whistleblowers who risk their jobs and their freedom to expose government fraud, waste, and abuse.”
