Eric Ciaramella Is No Whistleblower

Whistleblower ID
It’s been an open secret in certain circles in Washington that the phony “whistleblower” who began the Democrats’ latest investigation of President Trump is CIA employee Eric Ciaramella.

Our old friend Dan Bongino, investigative blogger Mike Cernovich and The Gateway Pundit’s Joe Hoft have all fingered Obama holdover Ciarmella as a likely source of NSC leaks and undercutting of the President going back to the early days of the Trump administration.

“Everyone knows who he is. CNN knows. The Washington Post knows. The New York Times knows. Congress knows. The White House knows. Even the president knows who he is,” said our old friend Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst and national security adviser to Trump, who has fielded dozens of calls from the media.

“They’re hiding him,” Fleitz asserted. “They’re hiding him because of his political bias."

One of our friends who was at the NSC in the early days of the administration described Ciarmella as the most hostile Obama holdover at the NSC, “It makes sense,” he said.

According to reporting by Paul Sperry for RealClear Investigations, Ciaramella left his National Security Council posting in the White House’s West Wing in mid-2017 amid concerns about negative leaks to the media. He has since returned to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

“He was accused of working against Trump and leaking against Trump,” said a former NSC official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.

Federal documents reported by Sperry reveal that the 33-year-old Ciaramella, 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 engineer the Russia “collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Sperry reported Ciaramella worked with a Democratic National Committee operative who dug up dirt on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, inviting her into the White House for meetings, former White House colleagues said.

The DNC operative, Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian-American who supported Hillary Clinton, led an effort to link the Republican campaign to the Russian government. “He knows her. He had her in the White House,” said one former co-worker, who requested anonymity to discuss the sensitive matter.

As a CIA officer specializing in Russia and Ukraine, Ciaramella was detailed over to the National Security Council from the agency in the summer of 2015, working under Susan Rice, President Obama’s national security adviser. He also worked closely with former Vice President Joe Biden.

Federal records reported by Mr. Sperry show that Biden’s office invited Ciaramella to an October 2016 state luncheon the vice president hosted for Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. Other guests included Brennan, as well as then-FBI Director James Comey and then-National Intelligence Director James Clapper.

Several U.S. officials told RealClearInvestigations that the invitation that was extended to Ciaramella, a relatively low-level GS-13 federal employee, was unusual and signaled he was politically connected inside the Obama White House.

Former White House officials told Sperry that Ciaramella worked on Ukrainian policy issues for Biden in 2015 and 2016, when the vice president was President Obama's "point man" for Ukraine. A Yale graduate, Ciaramella is said to speak Russian and Ukrainian, as well as Arabic. He had been assigned to the NSC by one of President Trump’s chief antagonists, former CIA Director John Brennan.

He was held over into the Trump administration, and headed the Ukraine desk at the NSC, eventually transitioning into the West Wing, until June 2017.

As the Gateway Pundit and Mike Cernovich reported, in June 2017, then-National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster promoted Ciaramella in spite of his connections to Susan Rice and Obama’s White House.

West Wing officials confirmed to Cernovich Media that Eric Ciaramella, who worked closely with Susan Rice while at NSC, was promoted to be H.R. McMaster’s personal aide. Ciaramella then had unfettered access to McMaster’s conversations with foreign leaders.

“He was moved over to the front office” to temporarily fill a vacancy, said a former senior White House official, where he “saw everything, read everything.”

The official added that it soon became clear among NSA staff that Ciaramella opposed the new Republican president’s foreign policies. “My recollection of Eric is that he was very smart and very passionate, particularly about Ukraine and Russia. That was his thing – Ukraine,” he said. “He didn’t exactly hide his passion with respect to what he thought was the right thing to do with Ukraine and Russia, and his views were at odds with the president’s policies.”

So, let’s connect a few dots about Eric Ciaramella and this intelligence operation against President Trump. Ciarmella was connected to Alexandra Chalupa, the Ukrainian-American who supported Hillary Clinton, and led an effort to fabricate links between the Trump campaign to the Russian government. Ciarmella was also linked to the corrupt previous Ukrainian government and to the Bidens, who were beneficiaries of that corruption. Any investigation into the Bidens’ corruption and the previous government of Ukraine by the new government of Ukraine was going to hurt Biden’s political prospects and Ciarmella’s friends in Ukraine. Finally, any investigation that resulted in Biden losing the Democratic nomination or being defeated by President Trump would eliminate Ciarmella’s political juice, mean permanent banishment from the White House and return him to the status of a nameless GS-13 hump in a basement cubicle at the CIA headquarters.

Connect all these dots from the reporting by Paul Sperry, Joe Hoft, Mike Cernovich, Dan Bongino and the info our friends who have passed through the Trump NSC have shared with us and it is clear Ciaramella is no whistleblower, but a person who would greatly benefit from a Joe Biden presidency who was carefully planted to disrupt the Trump White House.

Whistleblower

Yes, Ciarmella blows something, but it's NOT a whistle.

The "whistle blower"

"He was very smart and very passionate, particularly about Ukraine and Russia." What side of the fence was he on? Trump is supporting the Ukraine
unlike Obama ever did. He must be a communist sympathizer. To think he is
working for the CIA and having access to our most important secrets, is an
abomination. If Trump should be impeached for anything, it should be for
letting this guy get within a hounded yards of the White House!
