In a statement, the Montana Republican party said it “wholeheartedly condemns the comment that was made and under no circumstance is violence against someone with opposing political views acceptable”.

From another article:

"..Let's just add one more horror: Now that he's a free man with a clean record, Micah Schoettle — who was convicted of raping a little girl multiple times over two years, starting when she was nine — doesn't have to register as a sex offender, and can apply to have his record expunged, because Matt Bevin has a medieval understanding of medicine."

Yes on all 3 counts. But your last statement is pure speculation.  The original question was whether the whistle blower rules/protections  applied equally to .gov employees and contractors. The answer is not completely clear,  but generally accepted as Yes. Snowden used a 'no' answer to justify his actions. I don't necessarily disagree with his reasoning, but I'm happy he took his course of action. It is still not correct to say he had no other option.

Allow me to clarify: he took the only course available that would expose the problem.

He could also have done what everyone else in his position had done: collect his paycheck and keep his mouth shut. Yes, that's an option, but not one his conscience could abide.

Leaving aside the employee/contractor question, the current whistle blower faced all the same challenges you listed above. Yet he took a different course of action.  He faced the same 3 challenges that you listed above.  I think you can say he is facing a lot of challenges, but the fact that we are all here discussing it pretty much means that he wasn't (effectively) silenced. As to whether or not the crimes will continue - we have yet to see.   Also, I'd say both Snowden and the current WB di the right thing, and I'd call them both patriots.

There's no comparison. Trump's whistleblower had a majority in the House looking for anything—anything at all—to throw at Trump. He knew he'd get a friendly reception and get offered what protection they could deliver. Snowden had no such allies.

Yes, they're both patriots and deserve our thanks, but the risks Snowden took and the consequences he faces are far worse.
 

That's how I sees it though the motivation and background of the whistle blower will be met with much suspicion if nothing comes from it.  Now if Trump really did commit an impeachable offense, then it is moot, the whistle blower did a great service to our country regardless of motivation.  We shall see.  Maybe we are all not considering a completely different angle here in the big picture.  Is Trump's master plan to pull the curtain off of everything and pull everyone down with him?  The way things are going looks like in Washington, "they are all going to die a little in that war."   Both parties look bad and will be badly damaged when the dust is cleared on this one and I for one think this is ultimately a good thing for our country.   Will Trump's legacy be that he was the domino that set forth the eventual demise of the two party duopoly as we know it?
