Whistleblower Suddenly Won't Testify; Lawyers Break Off Negotiations Amid New Revelations

4 Comments

The so-called "Whistleblower" whose complaint about President Trump's phone call with the Ukrainian President set-off the current Impeachment Inquiry . . . . will NOT Testify.

A CIA officer who filed a second-hand whistleblower complaint against President Trump has gotten cold feet about testifying after revelations emerged that he worked with Joe Biden, former CIA Director John Brennan, and a DNC operative who sought dirt on President Trump from officials in Ukraine's former government.

According to the Washington Examiner, discussions with the whistleblower - revealed by RealClearInvestigations as 33-year-old Eric Ciaramella have been halted, "and there is no discussion of testimony from a second whistleblower, who supported the first's claims."

Ciaramella complained that President Trump abused his office when he asked Ukraine to investigate corruption allegations against Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as claims related to pro-Clinton election interference and DNC hacking in 2016.

 

On Thursday, a top National Security Council official who was present on a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky testified that he saw nothing illegal about the conversation.

"I want to be clear, I was not concerned that anything illegal was discussed," said Tim Morrison, former NSC Senior Director for European Affairs who was on the July 25 call between the two leaders.

And now, the partisan whistleblowers have cold feet;

"There is no indication that either of the original whistleblowers will be called to testify or appear before the Senate or House Intelligence committees. There is no further discussion ongoing between the legal team and the committees," said the Examiner's source.

The whistleblower is a career CIA officer with expertise in Ukraine policy who served on the White House National Security Council during the Obama administration, when 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was "point man" for Ukraine, and during the early months of the Trump administration. -Washington Examiner

In other words, House Democrats are about to impeach President Trump over a second-hand whistleblower complaint by a partisan CIA officer, and neither he nor his source will actually testify about it (for now...).

On Thursday, the House passed a resolution establishing a framework for Trump impeachment proceedings, belatedly granting Republicans the ability to subpoena witnesses, but only if Schiff and fellow Democrats on the Intelligence Committee agree.

Mark Zaid, who along with Andrew Bakaj is an attorney for both the original whistleblower and the second whistleblower, told the Washington Examiner the legal team was willing to work with lawmakers so long as anonymity is ensured. “We remain committed to cooperating with any congressional oversight committee's requests so long as it properly protects and ensures the anonymity of our clients,” Zaid said.

On Wednesday, Zaid and Bakaj declined to confirm or deny in a statement to the Washington Examiner that Eric Ciaramella, 33, a career CIA analyst and former Ukraine director on the NSCwas the whistleblower after a report by RealClearInvestigations. -Washington Examiner

In September, House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, who lied about contacts with Ciaramella (and hired two Ciaramella associates as staffers) said that the whistleblower "would like to speak to our committee."

 

Once Ciaramella's status as a CIA officer and his links to Biden emerged, however, Schiff backtracked. On October 13 he changed his tune, saying "Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected."

Meanwhile, once the House impeaches Trump - which it most certainly will - the tables will turn in the Senate, which will hold a mandatory trial. Not only will the GOP-Senators controlling the proceedings be able to subpoena documents and other evidence, they'll be able to compel Ciaramella, the Bidens, Chalupa and any other witnesses they desire as we head into the 2020 US election.

Nancy Pelosi saw this coming and caved to her party anyway. There isn't enough popcorn in the world for what's coming.

    Folks it’s “Impossible to find Real News on TV & Radio that is Totally Saturated with Outright Lies, Deception, and Propaganda.” This happened under “The Obama (The Anti Christ – whom shall come back to Power May 19, 2021 – CIA Project) Administration,” whom (with Congress) “Fostered Propaganda to be Included in The 2013 National Defense Authorization Act.” Understand, “Obama Acting for the Company (CIA),” as Their (CIA) Manchurian Candidate, “had to Effect this Action to Open the Door, using the Company (CIA) Mocking Bird Operation (Control of the Multi News Media) to Harbor a Future Coup D’etat (Currently Happening Against The *President Trump Administration) in the Event The Company (CIA) LOST CONTROL OF THE PRESIDENCY (WHITE HOUSE).” Note for example, when CNN uses their constant flow of Lies, Deception, and Propaganda, “THIS USE TO BE AGAINST THE LAW (FELONY).” (Study under U.S. Code Title 18, Chapter 47, @1031 Major Fraud Against the United States @ 1038 False Information and Hoaxes)

    What we need is to have all of us call on our US Representatives & Senators to file a Complaint Against an Attorney in each State Bar with evidence of serious violations of lawyer with recommendations for suspended or disbarred, like Adam Schiff.

    Ciaramella has gone quite because he is now part of Barr's criminal inquiry. Actually, Ciaramella is now toast and headed to the can.
