Guardians of the swamp.
Via Free Beacon:
TIME magazine named the anonymous federal employee whose whistleblower report set off President Donald Trump’s impending impeachment as well as the public servants who testified during the hearings its “2019 Guardians of the Year,” the magazine announced Wednesday morning.
The magazine’s Person of the Year award, which began in 1927, goes to the person or group that the publication’s editors feel to have had the greatest influence on the year’s events. This year’s honoree was teen climate activist Greta Thurnberg, who was hailed as a “global icon.”
The magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal says the awards were expanded in 2019 “to reflect the full range of subjects that TIME covers.”
