The attorney for the so-called whistleblower sent Trump a cease and desist letter to stop him from attacking his client:
FOX NEWS – A lawyer for the anonymous whistleblower who filed a complaint with the Inspector General over President Trump’s July phone call with Ukraine’s president sent a cease and desist lawyer to the White House Thursday, demanding Trump stop attacking his client, according to reports.
The letter, written by attorney Andrew Bakaj, asks White House counsel Pat Cipolloneto to advise Trump of the “legal and ethical peril in which he is placing himself should anyone be physically harmed” because of Trump’s or his surrogate’s actions, The Hill reported.
Bakaj wrote that the president is “engaging in rhetoric and activity that places my client, the Intelligence Community Whistleblower, and their family in physical danger.”
“Should anyone be physically harmed, my co-counsel, Mark Zaid, and I will not hesitate to take any and all appropriate action against your client,” he added, according to The Hill.
That was yesterday.
Fast forward to this morning and it clearly didn’t work…

I don’t know why CNN cut Trump off there, but he went on to say that the attorney for the whistleblower should be sued, possibly for treason. That’s obviously a reference to Mark Zaid’s coup tweets.
