Rep. Gohmert drops alleged whistleblower’s name at House Judiciary meeting

By

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) mentioned the name of the person who is believed to be the whistleblower behind the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, Eric Ciaramella, during his remarks at a House Judiciary Committee's meeting on Wednesday.

The controversy: House Democrats have argued that revealing the identity of the whistleblower, an intelligence officer who raised concerns about President Trump's July 25 call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky, could endanger his life and dissuade future whistleblowers from coming forward. Republicans and the White House, on the other hand, say that the whistleblower needs to testify to his claims in the complaint that prompted the impeachment inquiry.

The majority of the media has, so far, restrained from mentioning the name Eric Ciaramella, with the exception of some conservative-leaning outlets. Facebook and Youtube have banned the mention of Ciaramella's name as well.

Gohmert's remarks: The Texas representative made the comments while criticizing Democrats not calling on key figures to testify as part of the impeachment inquiry into the president.

"Now that we have the articles of impeachment — a vague abuse of power, obstruction of Congress — the very things the majority has done in preventing us from having the witness that could shed light on this, not opinion but fact witnesses, we need to hear from those witnesses. We needed to hear from those witnesses," he said, " people like Sean Misko, Abigail Grace, Eric Ciaramella, Devin Archer, Joe Biden, Nellie Ohr, Alexandra Chalupa, and so many others."

Critics slammed Gohmert for saying Ciaramella's name.

Not a first: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) last month told WMAL in an interview that "Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony, and then I think it will be ultimately determined at that point," as we reported at LaCorte News.
