As impeachment interrogations continue to roll out, questions are continuing to arise about the identity of the “whistleblower.” Inquiring minds want to know more about the whistleblower’s integrity and background. In the wake of the Democrats impeachment inquiry, troubling connections between the whistleblower and the Russian collusion hoax have introduced doubt about the whistleblower’s motivations and therefore his information’s accuracy.
The whistleblower has tentatively been identified by members of the media (mostly conservative leaning outlets). While exposing a whistleblower is against Federal law, the actual person in question may have some problematic attachments that could derail the impeachment inquiry.
While the mainstream media rails against us and other outlets for exposing the whistleblower, Don Jr. perhaps said it best when he tweeted, “PS: Maybe Real Clear Politics & others wouldn’t have been able to ID the alleged whistleblower if the NY Times didn’t out that he was a CIA official detail to the White House? The media is full of shit with their faux outrage over me tweeting something already in the public domain!”
Attorneys for the whistleblower announced concern almost immediately after Don Jr’s initial tweet exposing the whistleblower, stating that “Identifying any suspected name for the whistleblower will place that individual and their family at risk of serious harm.”
If the whistleblower is Eric Ciaramella (reporters found him hiding out at his parent’s home in Connecticut and he didn’t deny he was the whistleblower if that tells you anything) that is concerning on many fronts, since he was directly involved with the people who are allegedly behind the anti-Trump dossier the FBI used to gain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
Ciaramella was also involved in a series of email chains about the Ukraine calls and diplomacy and has been included in a number of Obama era official government emails about Ukraine. He is experienced with Ukraine policy as well and is currently employed by the CIA.
According to Donald Trump Jr, “The entire media is #Triggered that I (a private citizen) tweeted out a story naming the alleged whistleblower. Are they going to pretend that his name hasn’t been in the public domain for weeks now? Numerous people & news outlets including Real Clear Politics already ID’d him.”
Regardless of the whistleblower’s actual name, it is his connections to the Obama administration and his actions as a passionate “never-Trumper” that are raising eyebrows the most.
Real Clear Investigations was first to name Ciaramella as the whistleblower and others have confirmed the CIA operative has been included in the private impeachment inquiries. Ciaramella also worked for then-Vice President Biden on Ukraine issues; this is during the time that Biden’s son is also entangled with the Ukraine.
As for President Trump, he is not naming names, but has spoken out about the conflict of interest, “Well, I’ll tell you what. There have been stories written about a certain individual, a male, and they say he’s the whistleblower,” Trump told reporters. “If he’s the whistleblower, he has no credibility because he’s a Brennan guy, he’s a Susan Rice guy, he’s an Obama guy.”
Trump added, “And he hates Trump. And he’s a radical. Now, maybe it’s not him. But if it’s him, you guys ought to release the information.”
