On Friday, Ivanka Trump said the Ukraine whistleblower’s identity is “not particularly relevant,” adding that the person’s motives are more important. President Trump and his administration have repeatedly requested the public release of the whistleblower’s name, and have continued to condemn the individual.
The interview: During an interview with the Associated Press, the president’s daughter said “the whistleblower shouldn’t be a substantive part of the conversation,” adding that the person “did not have firsthand information.” While referencing the identity of the whistleblower, Ivanka said: “to me, it’s not particularly relevant aside from what the motivation behind all of this was.”

So rather than wait, under a year, until the people can decide for themselves based on his record and based on his accomplishments, this new effort has commenced.”

Trump’s allegation: On Sunday, President Trump alleged that the whistleblower was associated with Obama administration officials, reports The Hill.
“There have been stories written about a certain individual, a male, and they say he’s the whistleblower,” Trump said. “If he’s the whistleblower, he has no credibility because he’s a [John] Brennan guy, he’s a Susan Rice guy, he’s an Obama guy. And he hates Trump.”
“Now, maybe it’s not him. But if it’s him, you guys ought to release the information,” he added.
