... is inadmissable in court?

Let's put this in perspective. Say I hear from your friend that you stole a million bucks from a bank. I take this to the police, they corroborate, and arrest you. At court, you are contending that since my initial statement was second hand, all the corroboration would be thrown out too, and you wouldn't be prosecuted?


The rules for the congressional subpoena power are different than the rules of evidence in a court room.

Congress wrote whistleblowing rules long ago not for the purpose of criminal court rooms but instead to provide information to exercise its article 1 consitutionial prerogatives.
