The US Republican Party asked its leader, President Donald Trump, to show more moderation on Twitter after the numerous criticisms received by the president after revealing the identity of a man who is considered as the complainant who triggered the process of political trial.
Trump retweeted a publication that included the name of the CIA official at the center of the Ukrainian scandal, an act that could violate the anonymity guaranteed by law to whistleblowers.
"If the president tweeted a little less, it would not cause brain damage," Republican Senator John Kennedy, a key Trump ally told Fox News Sunday.RELATED
Trump will end 2019 as the third president in U.S. history to be subjected to a impeachment process, after being accused of pressuring Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, one of his rivals in his 2020 re-election nomination.

It is unlikely that the accusation of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress led by the House of Representatives will be approved by the Senate controlled by Republicans, in a trial that is expected to begin in January.
But Trump seems increasingly frustrated because a trial date has not been set amid a partisan confrontation over his rules.
The whistleblower's retuit was no longer visible on the president's Twitter account on Saturday morning, although it was not clear who had removed it.

The Democratic Coalition political action group tweeted Sunday that "while Trump has repeatedly backed efforts to unmask the whistleblower, his retuit marks the first time he directly sends the supposed name to his 68 million followers."
Noah Bookbinder, who leads Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (Crew), published that "the president who uses his power and position to implicitly expose and threaten the whistleblower of Ukraine is, like so many other things he has done , completely out of place. "
