Andrew Bakaj, one of the attorneys for the whistleblower whose report led to House Democrats' impeachment proceedings, sent a cease-and-desist letter to White House counsel Pat Cipollone, telling President Trump to stop attacking his client, CNN reports.

"I am writing to respectfully request that you counsel your client on the legal and ethical peril in which he is placing himself should anyone be physically harmed as a result of his, or his surrogates', behavior," Bakaj wrote, adding that the president is "engaging in rhetoric and activity that places my client, the Intelligence Community Whistleblower, and their family in physical danger."

Since the public release of the whistleblower report, Trump has continuously attacked the whistleblower in an attempt to discredit what was said in the report.
 
The report alleges that Trump used the power of his office to solicit a political favor from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
