When House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, first launched the current impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, it was based solely on a complaint filed by a so-called “whistleblower” over the content of a phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.
Since that time, Democrats and their media allies have gone to great lengths to keep the identity of the whistleblower a secret — including threatening legal retribution for any who out that person — even as the suspected name and details of the individual have been floating around social media for several weeks now.
It would appear, however, that Democrats on Schiff’s committee have proceeded to reveal the identity of the suspected whistleblower themselves in a recently released transcript of testimony, proving they are either ridiculously incompetent or that everyone has focused in on the wrong guy.
On page 236 of the transcript for the deposition of Ambassador William Taylor that took place on Oct. 22, during some back-and-forth discussion about the whistleblower with a questioner by the name of Castor, the suspected name of that individual — Eric Ciaramella — was mentioned and was not redacted, as Schiff had previously vowed to do if the person’s name was uttered.
The questioner asked, “Okay. Does a person by the name of Eric Ciaramella ring a bell for you?” Taylor replied, “It doesn’t.”
“So, to your knowledge, you never had any communications with somebody by that name?” Castor pressed. Taylor said, “Correct.”As noted in a tweet from Turning Point USA’s Chief Creative Officer Benny Johnson, there are two simple explanations for the inclusion of Ciaramella’s name in the transcript in unredacted form.
Um — why is Eric Ciaramella’s name in the congressional Impeachment testimony?
Dems said they would redact the name of the «whistleblower.»
1. Ciaramella is not the whistleblower
2. Dems messed up BIG TIME & printed the name of the leaker in their own document pic.twitter.com/YrvUIwbt3y
