Reports are now circulating – this one via Rob Crilly, Steven Nelson and David M. Drucker’s article for the Washington Examiner – that the “whistleblower” who claimed President Trump made an improper call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, is a Joe Biden operative:
The 2020 Democratic candidate with whom the CIA whistleblower had a “professional” tie is Joe Biden, according to intelligence officers and former White House officials.
Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only “in the executive branch.” The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he “was detailed to the National Security Council at one point.”
A retired CIA officer told the Washington Examiner, “From everything we know about the whistleblower and his work in the executive branch then, there is absolutely no doubt he would have been working with Biden when he was vice president.”
Is this true? From one report alone, which does not contain hard evidence but only speculation, we do not know.
But other sources – none of which I’m familiar with, so I’m not attributing them here – are claiming to know, specifically, who the “whistleblower” is:
His name is Eric Ciaramella – a former assistant to National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and dedicated anti-Trumper.
Let me be very clear about this. I do NOT know if this is true. I do NOT know if the “whistleblower” is Eric Ciaramella.
And, it should be pointed out, I also do not know what difference it makes, at this point, who the “whistleblower” is anyway – since, when President Trump released the transcript of his conversation, so we all know what he and President Zelensky discussed, he made the issue moot.
But, for whatever it’s worth, there it is.
Now let’s see which mainstream media, if any, confirm or debunk any of the above information.
