Alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella is named in transcript released by Schiff yesterday

By

The story: The name of the alleged whistleblower appeared in the impeachment inquiry transcript of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor released by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA.) In the transcript, Ambassador Taylor is asked whether the name Eric Ciaramella, who is a CIA analyst, rings a bell, to which Taylor answers, “It doesn’t.”

“So, to your knowledge, you never had any communications with somebody by that name?”

“Correct,” Taylor replies.

Response: Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson posted on Twitter regarding the transcript, implying that this has two explanations.

Real Clear Investigations' Paul Sperry was among the first reporters to discuss the alleged identity of the whistleblower whose complaint initiated the Trump impeachment inquiry, describing his identity as “an open secret inside the Beltway.”

Last week, Sperry reported that the alleged whistleblower is a “registered Democrat held over from the Obama White House, previously worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan, a vocal critic of Trump who helped initiate the Russia ‘collusion’ investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.”

On Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted out an article that included Ciaramella's name.

His tweet sparked an outburst on social media, especially by left-leaning news outlets who criticized the president's son.

“The entire media is #Triggered that I (a private citizen) tweeted out a story naming the alleged whistleblower. Are they going to pretend that his name hasn’t been in the public domain for weeks now? Numerous people & news outlets including Real Clear Politics already ID’d him,” responded Trump Jr., via Twitter.

The media can make you stupid and we’re working hard to be an antidote. If you agree, please tell a friend to check out LaCorte News!

Most large media outlets, however, refuse to reveal the name. Fox News forbid their writers and contributors from revealing the name, claiming it has still not been officially confirmed.
