Steve Bannon, Trump's former White House chief strategist, says he worked to remove alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella from the National Security Council in 2017.
Bannon added that he had worked to kick Ciaramella off the NSC during Trumps first year in office. Bannon did not name Ciaramella, a career CIA analyst, but clearly referred to him.
There was a story in the Washington Times yesterday that tied me to the efforts to get the at least the gentleman who was named out of the National Security Council, Bannon said during a Vice interview with Liz Landers last week.
It is possible Bannon was referring to a Washington Examiner article from last week that cited former National Security Council officials who said many on the NSC were suspicious of Ciaramella and believed he may have been responsible for leaking the contents of Trumps discussions with leaders of Mexico and Australia in 2017. The sources said former national security adviser H.R. McMaster was unhappy with efforts by Bannon and others to push out Obama holdovers such as Ciaramella, who was criticized by pro-Trump writers in 2017.
When Landers asked whether it was true he had tried to remove Ciaramella, Bannon responded: The individual that was named? Absolutely true. When I was in the White House, there was a number of people on the National Security Council the named individual eventually got let go, I believe because people were suspicious, and not me, but other people around him, were suspicious about his leaking, so he was let go.
"But I believe you dont need to name the person, OK? But I do believe you need a thorough investigation of his intentions, relationships hes had, etc.
Ciaramella, 33, has been named widely as whistle blower and has issued no denial.

“The sources said former national security adviser H.R. McMaster was unhappy with efforts by Bannon and others to push out Obama holdovers such as Ciaramella”
Deep State got General Mike Flynn (a very honorable man) booted and indicted and his replacement was puke McMaster.
The NSC has 20-something KIDS in senior positions in The White House???
Trump should have cleaned house.
Just shows the infestation that is Washington DC
President Trump listened to the wrong people, whomever recommended HR McMaster is a deep stater as well.
Ranking Intell Committee member says 500 staff in NSC.
Trump didn’t realize he was set up from the get go. Chris Christie his transition guy was a disaster and they never did get the ship righted.
Trump didn’t know how complex the intelligence world was and what he was facing. Even now, it’s clear he’s still learning the shades of gray between loyal officers and those who are political operatives.......
I knew Trump’s first two years were going to be learning who to trust and who not to trust.
Most of the people who originally worked for him were nothing but opportunists, and it would take some time to weed them all out.
“President Trump listened to the wrong people, whomever recommended HR McMaster is a deep stater as well.”
Trump folded to the GOPe early in his admin. Now he is paying the price.
That's an obvious case of Obstruction Of Justice!
Whistleblower attended White House meetings, coordinated with Vindman
New information is coming to light about the investigation into the origins of the whistleblower complaint and how it first came from the CIA. One America’s Jack Posobiec has the details.

Ah, Vindman, “Ukrainian Defense Minister” Vindman, lol.
You know that I personally have NO USE for Jared Zoe Ivanka HOWEVER seeing the BS Trump is going through THEY are the ONLY 2 people in the White House Trump can truly trust!!! I think Trumps plan was to bring in Generals he BELIEVED he could trust the military only to find that these DAMN generals are as deep state as they come!!! This IS NOT Trumps fault he is from the OUTSIDE and to be honest how could he have possibly known how deep the deep state was!!! It is no wonder ALL of our P9TUSs are USELESS they dont run the government these lying useless bureaucrats do!!!
I have always said he should have cleaned house. It was his first mistake; now this crap is going on 3 yrs later.
Military people are always cited as going out to today’s war prepared to fight the LAST war. McMaster is no different.
He earned his reputation with a good analysis of how the Johnson Administration went down the toilet in Vietnam by ignoring the Joint Chiefs and the professionals and getting in a political echo chamber.
He then goes to work for Trump and throws out the political allies and uses staff that is all deep state. Same problem with reverse outline.
AFTER this loser (PLANT) came forward with SECOND HAND INFO, Brennan and Schiff changed the rules to include Second Hand info.
There is no legal basis for hiding this CONSPiRATOR!!!!
Up from 50 during the cold war.
Fire all the Obama holdovers... now..
Christopher Wray is a Deep State hack.. Chris Christie recommended him
