"As I’ve looked back at the laws written designed to protect people that have the courage to come forward within government, to blow the whistle, to tell the truth…we have a number of laws, and they date back quite a few years…These issues are very serious. As a result, my office has set up a website...We’ve already had over 130 whistleblowers throughout the government contact our office…Probably the greatest risk any whistleblower incurs is when they contact Congress. It sounds like that is where the greatest retaliation can occur…This hearing is to highlight, so the American people understand, so this committee understands, that once an individual steps forward, and puts their career at risk, expose themselves to the type of retaliation that is unfortunately all too common, we want to hear what kind of retaliation is inflicted on an individual…I appreciate the courage of anybody willing to step forward and risk that kind of retaliation.” close
