Each year, National Whistleblower Day is observed on July 30 to commemorate the first American whistleblower protection law, a resolution passed by the Continental Congress in 1778 after ten whistleblowers reported wrongdoing and abuses committed by a superior officer in the Continental Navy. Since the beginning of the United States, whistleblowers have been an integral part in government oversight and accountability.
Irvin McCullough is a National Security Analyst at the Government Accountability Project. He joined the show to discuss National Whistleblower Day and the state of whistleblower rights.
