House Democrats are looking to prevent the whistleblower from being identified by holding the person’s testimony at a remote location and potentially changing their appearance and voice.

Democrats are going to great lengths to hide the whistleblower’s identity out of fear the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee could leak their identity, according to The Washington Post, which cited three people familiar with the discussions.

The article goes on to state the following:

Democrats are considering holding testimony outside the Capitol as well as a staff-only session that would bar lawmakers from questioning the whistleblower, according to the Post.

According to the Post, aides have considered:

  • having the whistleblower testify remotely via a video hookup with the whistleblower’s image blurred and voice altered
  • having the whistleblower sit behind a screen or partition
  • audio-only testimony
