    Catherine Herridge .. notes that long after filing whistleblower complaint that failed to disclose prior contacts with the staff of Adam Schiff – probably a matter of lying in a sworn statement, and therefore criminal conduct – the still unnamed (in the MSM but widely believed to be Eric Ciaramella) ... the anonymous whistleblower reached out to the intelligence community watchdog on October 8 to clarify the nature of his or her contact with Democratic majority staff of the House Intelligence Committee before the complaint was filed. The whistleblower acknowledged reaching out to the committee, but claimed that nothing substantial...

    Must be nice to ‘run’ an investigation in such a way where you can try and remove a sitting president while protecting your own backside. Adam Schiff has definitely been very ‘careful’ about what he does and does not release to the public, and while we all know there has to be some very specific reason why … it’s hard to say for sure. Until now. Paul Sperry sent this tweet about Schiff withholding the transcript of ICIG Michael Atkinson from October 4 behind closed doors which lasted for eight hours. EIGHT HOURS. Gosh, that seems like a rather large...

    Another day, another Deep State participant outed. ICIG Michael Atkinson altered the whistleblower form to allow for second-hand information, which allowed suspected Schiff whistleblower Eric Ciaramella to present a bogus accusation on the President. Atkinson also oversaw the FBI lovers who altered the FISA warrant. This will soon be reported in the DOJ IG’s FISA Abuse report. Today we point out that Atkinson’s wife is connected to Fusion GPS. What a mess! Last weekend we learned from another leak to the Washington Post, that an individual in Obama’s FBI altered documents that provided support for a FISA Warrant obtained to...
  • Second Schiff Staffer Linked to Burisma-Backed Think Tank,‘Close Friends’ /w Alleged ‘Whistleblower’

    Yet another staffer for Rep. Adam Schiff served as a fellow for the Atlantic Council, a think tank that is funded by and works in partnership with Burisma, the natural gas company at the center of allegations regarding Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Sean Misko has been described as “close friends” with Eric Ciaramella, whom Real Clear Investigations suggests is the likely so-called whistleblower. Misko reportedly joined Schiff’s staff at the House Intelligence Committee in August – the same month the so-called whistleblower’s complaint was filed after first reportedly interfacing with a staffer for Schiff’s office. Misko in...

    It’s time for the charade to end and for a GOP congressman to end it. We all know who he is and we all know House Impeachment -- er -- Intelligence Committee Adam “Shifty” Schiff knows who he is. He and or his staff met with him long before the ICIG received any complaint, likely colluding with him and coaching him as they tinkered together his error-filled complaint. Yet, despite courageous and ferocious cross-examination by GOP representatives of Schiff’s parade of hearsay witnesses, one name goes unspoken, with Schiff successfully intimidating the GOP based on another Schiff lie – that...

    A photo of CIA whistleleaker Eric Ciaramella shaking Barack Obama’s hand in the Oval Office was published on a close friend’s wedding site last year. The photo was obtained by the Washington Examiner and it reaffirms Eric Ciaramella is a political hack with a partisan Trump-hating agenda. So one year after Eric Ciaramella left his job at the Trump White house and went back to the CIA, he posted this picture of him shaking Barack Obama’s hand on his best friend’s wedding site. No wonder why impeachment ringleader Adam Schiff and his stenographers in the media won’t identify Eric Ciaramella...

    The FBI last month requested an interview with the whistleblower whose complaint fueled the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and Ukraine, a person familiar with the situation said Wednesday. An agent from the FBI’s Washington field office reached out to the whistleblower’s lawyers last month to seek an interview about the substance of the complaint, according to this person, who insisted on anonymity to discuss the request with The Associated Press. The person said it was clear from the FBI that the whistleblower was not regarded as the target of any investigation but rather a potential witness. It was...

    A year after Ukraine official and alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella left President Trump’s White House, a picture of him shaking Barack Obama’s hand was published on a close friend's wedding website. The Oval Office photograph, obtained by the Washington Examiner, is circulating among Trump allies who consider it evidence that the alleged whistleblower is biased against Trump and had partisan motivations when he filed an Aug. 12 complaint that sparked impeachment proceedings. In the photograph, a smiling Ciaramella, then Ukraine director on the National Security Council at the White House, is shown shaking Obama's hand. They are standing in front...

    Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified on Tuesday that he bypassed his chain of command and went directly to the National Security Council’s legal counsel to raise his concerns about President Donald Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. The implication appears to be that Vindman had an agenda, which was only strengthened by his claim in his opening statement that Trump demanded Zelensky open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, though according to the White House’s partial transcript, the commander in chief did no such thing. Republican Rep. Brad Wenstrup...

    Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe said during Tuesday’s impeachment hearing that the use of the accusation of “bribery” has only recently been leveled against President Donald Trump. Ratcliffe said it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who started to refer to the president’s alleged bribery because it was more comprehensible to Americans than “quid pro quo.”(snip)Ratcliffe noted that the word bribery does appear once in the testimony — but not in relation to Trump. “In fact, in these 3,500 pages of sworn testimony in just these ten transcripts released thus far, the word bribery appears in these 3,500 pages exactly one...

    HPSCI Ranking Member Devin Nunes questioned NSC official Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman about whether he had shared the contents of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky with anyone outside the White House. In responding Vindman stated “two people”, and then named State Dept George Kent, and a person from the intelligence community. Then things get interesting. Vindman refused to name the intelligence agency because it would likely expose the CIA “whistle-blower”. This non-answer makes Alexander Vindman the source for the CIA “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and the committee's ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes. R-Calif., clashed during Tuesday's impeachment inquiry hearing after Schiff suggested Nunes' questions could lead to the outing of the anonymous whistleblower who filed the complaint about President Trump. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer at the National Security Council, told Nunes that he spoke with two people outside the White House about Trump's July 25 call with Ukrainian President Voldomyr Zelensky in the immediate wake of the interaction, including State Department official George Kent and one member of the "intelligence community." Nunes then...

    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 Trump’s 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...

    The Obama Administration coerced the Ukrainian government into removing the prosecutor investigating Ukrainian firm Burisma and its ties to Obama’s Vice President Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry. Next they plotted with whistleblower Eric Ciaramella in the White House and then pushed the Steele dossier to the FBI. We know that Obama State Department Victoria Nuland was involved in numerous activities in the Obama White House while working for John Kerry. Nuland first was noted when she was caught lying to reporters about Obama’s Benghazi talking points. Nuland then came to light in 2014 when she was caught on...

    Eric Ciaramella, whom Real Clear Investigations suggests is the likely so-called whistleblower, received emails about Ukraine policy from a top director at George Soros’s Open Society Foundations. The emails informed Ciaramella and a handful of other Obama administration foreign policy officials about Soros’s whereabouts, the contents of Soros’s private meetings about Ukraine and a future meeting the billionaire activist was holding with the prime minister of Ukraine. A primary recipient of the Open Society emails along with Ciaramella was then-Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland, who played a central role in the anti-Trump dossier affair. Nuland, with...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., gave strict orders to President Trump not to “intimidate” the whistleblower who sparked the House impeachment inquiry into the president – telling Trump that he was in her “wheelhouse” if he attempted to go after the anonymous source. "I will make sure he does not intimidate the whistleblower," Pelosi said during an interview on CBS' "Face The Nation.” "I told the president you're in my wheelhouse when you come after the whistleblower." Pelosi’s words come as the House Intelligence Committee is in the midst of public hearings with officials about Trump’s now infamous July 25...

    The Democrat whistleblower that Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi are propping up in their hollow impeachment attacks on President Trump could be subject to felony false statement charges for not disclosing that he had contacted Schiff before filing his complaint. Because the whistleblower never disclosed his contacts with Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee (of which Schiff is chairman), the intelligence committee inspector general (ICIG) testified that he “had no knowledge of” the improper contacts. So he never looked into it. The Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act requires whistleblowers to contact the Intelligence Committee Inspector General BEFORE contacting Congressional staffers....

    Donald Trump Jr., under fire for “outing” the alleged Ukraine phone call whistleblower, doubled down on his description of CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella as a Democratic Party operative who cried “like a little child” when his father beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Speaking at Virginia’s Liberty University to promote his new book, Trump mocked reports that he was the first to name the alleged whistleblower, and he said that a simple internet search would show the political leanings of Ciaramella. All you have to do is a little research, and you can see that this is a guy...
