Our Mission

Whistleblower Aid is committed to protecting the rule of law in the United States and around the world.

Whistleblowing ≠ Leaking

Whistleblowing is not necessarily the same as leaking. Whistleblowing means reporting and exposing government and corporate law breaking. “Leaking” means disclosing classified or confidential information to someone who is not legally authorized to receive it. If classified or confidential information is leaked, the source and even the recipient may be criminally prosecuted or legally liable. No one should have to risk their career or their freedom, to follow their conscience. That's why we created Whistleblower Aid.

Whistleblower Aid is not Wikileaks. No one should ever send classified information to Whistleblower Aid. Whistleblower Aid will never assist clients or prospective clients with leaking classified information.


The Government Whistleblower's Challenge

Every U.S. civil servant and military service member swears an oath “to support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Government whistleblowers thus face a complex moral calculus.

  • Governments have a legitimate authority, even a duty, to criminalize the disclosure of certain secrets.
  • Governments sometimes abuse that legitimate authority, improperly classifying information to shield themselves from public scrutiny.
  • Everyone who has sworn an oath to protect our Constitution and laws has a duty to try to rectify lawbreaking by government agencies and officials.

We recognize and respect that, as they decide how to proceed, each person must follow his or her own conscience.

By making it easier for whistleblowers to expose wrongdoing without breaking the law or incurring criminal liability, we hope to encourage more patriots to come forward. Together, we can protect the American republic.
