WASHINGTON: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has publicly named the “whistleblower” behind the complaint leading to the present day Impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
Appearing on WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall, co-host Vince Coglianese brought up the name of Eric Ciaramella. Ciaramell is the CIA officer widely believed to be the individual who filed the complaint that sparked the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
Paul commented that Ciaramella is indeed a “person of interest” who should be a “material witness” before Congress in the ongoing hearings.
“Is it your understanding, Senator, that Eric Ciaramella is the whistleblower?” Coglianese asked Paul.
Senator Pauls response being:
“I think Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony and then, I think, it will be ultimately determined at that point. But I think he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there, when Hunter Biden was working for the Ukrainian oligarch. So simply for that alone, I think he’s a material witness that needs to be brought in.”
Paul had previously told the fake news to do their jobs and name the whistleblower. However, Adam Schiff has already named the name if anyone is paying attention. (Schiff Names Eric Ciaramella As Whistleblower)
Please note, Communities Digital News named Ciaramella on October 29, 2019 based on reports noting Eric Ciaramella was a CIA analyst and expert on Ukraine and Russia.
In addition, CDN reports Ciaramella was detailed to the Obama White House NSC as Director of Baltic and Eastern European Affairs including Ukraine. Ciaramella was a known Susan Rice protege. He is said to have traveled to Ukraine with Vice President Joe Biden twice. Making him all the more relevant to testify before the Senate.
By calling for his “ouster” in the mainstream media, it allows the Senate more leeway in calling him to testify as he will no longer need “protection.”
“We also now know the name of the whistleblower. The whistleblower needs to come forward as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs,” Paul said at a President Trump rally in Kentucky last week.
“I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name,” Paul said to the crowd as they erupted with cheers.
After he was challenged by reporters, Paul doubled down and said he would reveal the whistleblower’s name himself at some point if the fake news kept suppressing the truth.
“I’m more than willing to, and I probably will at some point. … There is no law preventing anybody from saying the name,” Paul said to reporters.
“I want it to be more about the process and less about the person,” Paul said to Bret Baier in a Fox News interview. “Nothing stops me. There’s no law that stops me from doing it other than that I don’t want to make it about the one individual.”
Paul showed on Wednesday that he is a man of his word. And that he has the courage to resist the narrative pushed by the fake news, deep state and the Democrats. Paul refuses to sit idly by as a phony whistleblower undermines the rule of law. Enabling a partisan witch hunt that is severely damaging the country.
