House Democrats want to protect the whistleblower who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump alleging he abused his presidential powers for political gain, reports The Washington Post.

Democrats are hoping to hold testimony at a remote location away from Washington, D.C., and possibly obscure the person’s appearance and video with modification technology.

Rep. Adam “Schiff does not want to burn his identity,” a senior congressional official told the Post.

“There are lots of different protocols and procedures we’re looking into to find out what works and doesn’t work to protect the identity of the whistleblower,” said a different official familiar with the talks. “That is paramount.” 

The New York Times last week published details of the whistleblower’s identity, a move that brought criticism from many readers, including some who work in national security and intelligence.

Trump has said he wants to meet his “accuser.”

"Like every American, I deserve to meet my accuser, especially when this accuser, the so-called 'Whistleblower,' represented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a totally inaccurate and fraudulent way," Trump tweeted before taking aim at House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff who confirmed last Sunday there was a tentative agreement for the whistleblower to testify before his committee.
