Stephen Kohn, attorney and executive director of National Whistleblowers Center talks about Senate bill 372, which purports to strengthen protections for whistleblowers. White House lawyer Norman Eisen was invited to debate the bill, but declined. This is the next installment in the Boiling Frogs interview series, co-hosted with FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds. Edmonds and Kohn argue that the bill would weaken protection for FBI employees, and does not help national security whistleblowers (CIA, NSA, Defense). The bill is before Sen. Lieberman’s Homeland Security Committee, and we encourage listeners to lobby their senators on this badly written legislation.
