FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., appeared on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Tuesday and defended his call for media outlets to reveal the name of the Ukraine call whistleblower, adding that they should come forward.

Paul was asked to respond to a tweet by whistleblower attorney Andrew Bakhash, which stated that if Congress does not protect his client’s “anonymity” their “safety” will be jeopardized.

“I don’t wish harm on anyone. I’ve been the victim of political violence not once, but twice,” Paul said, noting he was on a Virginia baseball field in 2017 when a gunman shot Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and was left with broken ribs after an assault by a neighbor. “So I know what political violence is all about. I don’t want that at all.”

At a rally in Lexington, Ky. Monday, Paul called on the Ukraine whistleblower to testify, saying they were biased and that Democrats are trying to hide their identity.

“I say to the media: Do your job and print his name,” Paul said, referring to the whistleblower.

On Tuesday, Paul told Baier he was confident he knew who the whistleblower was and said he could reveal the name if he wanted to.

“The statute says the inspector general can’t reveal the name. There’s nothing that prevents me from saying it now. Other than that, I want it to be more about the process and less about the person,” Paul said. “But there is no law that prevents me from mentioning the name of who’s been said to be the whistleblower.”

At Monday’s rally, Paul also slammed Hunter Biden for obtaining lucrative roles with companies despite having no relevant expertise while his father, as senator and vice president, pushed legislation affecting those companies. The senator continued to focus on Biden Tuesday, saying that that it was unfair President Trump was being investigated and the Bidens were not.

Paul also put forth that he believed the whistleblower was “a material witness to the potential Biden corruption.”

“He was there under Joe Biden. He was there when Joe Biden was trying to fire the prosecutor… that was investigating Hunter Biden,” Paul claimed. “So this person was a Ukrainian expert on the desk at that time. I think he should be interviewed not as the whistleblower, but as a material witness to the Biden corruption in Ukraine.”

Baier pressed Paul on his past defense of whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.

“Yes, the whistleblower statute should protect people,” Paul said.

“Only the whistleblowers that you like?” Baier asked.

“No, they should protect him. I want Edward Snowden protected. So he’s not executed. I want him protected.

“What about this guy?” Baier asked.

“I don’t want him executed either,” Paul responded. “I don’t think he should be fired.”

I am sure that Senator Rand Paul is speaking about the individual who was revealed as the Whistleblower a week ago on RealClearInvestigations.com as Eric Ciaramella.

Federal documents 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 initiate the Russia “collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Further, Ciaramella (pronounced char-a-MEL-ah) 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.

Earlier today, Fox News’ Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume tweeted the following concerning Sen. Paul’s original call for the Media to reveal the Whistleblower’s name.

He says he knows who it is. So why doesn’t he do it?

Which brings up the question, if it is Sen. Paul’s job to publicly identify Ciaramella as the Whistleblower…then what is the job of “broadcast journalists” such as yourself, Mr. Hume?

It honestly amazes me as to the number of respected individuals within the Beltway who seem to deem that following Washingtonian Status Quo Protocol to be more important than protecting the rights of a United States President who has literally brought our country back from the edge of an economic abyss.

I do not care if these “broadcast journalists” like the President or not, they should at least have the journalistic integrity (which is probably a contradiction in terms nowadays) to seek the truth…even if they themselves are violating the Protocol of the Washingtonian Elite who are eager to hold onto the Status Quo.

The Whistleblower needs to be called in to testify before the Senate and, while he sits there, one of the Senators needs to read a transcript of the Ukrainian Call, getting both his answers and the transcript of the phone call on record.

Senator Rand Paul is right.

It is time for the Republicans to launch as strong offensive in defense of President Trump, the man who made THEM relevant again.

Our country’s future depends on it.

Until He Comes,

Report: Schiff’s “Whistleblower” is an Obama Administration Holdover and Registered Dem Who Works in CIA HQ

Paul Sperry reports on RealClearInvestigations.com that

For a town that leaks like a sieve, Washington has done an astonishingly effective job keeping from the American public the name of the anonymous “whistleblower” who triggered impeachment proceedings against President Trump — even though his identity is an open secret inside the Beltway.

More than two months after the official filed his complaint, pretty much all that’s known publicly about him is that he is a CIA analyst who at one point was detailed to the White House and is now back working at the CIA.

But the name of a government official fitting that description — Eric Ciaramella — has been raised privately in impeachment depositions, according to officials with direct knowledge of the proceedings, as well as in at least one open hearing held by a House committee not involved in the impeachment inquiry. Fearing their anonymous  witness could be exposed, Democrats this week blocked Republicans from asking more questions about him and intend to redact his name from all deposition transcripts.

RealClearInvestigations is disclosing the name because of the public’s interest in learning details of an effort to remove a sitting president from office. Further, the official’s status as a “whistleblower” is complicated by his being a hearsay reporter of accusations against the president, one who has “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate” — as the Intelligence Community Inspector General phrased it circumspectly in originally fielding his complaint.

Federal documents 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 initiate the Russia “collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Further, Ciaramella (pronounced char-a-MEL-ah) 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.

Also, Ciaramella huddled for “guidance” with the staff of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, including former colleagues also held over from the Obama era whom Schiff’s office had recently recruited from the NSC. (Schiff is the lead prosecutor in the impeachment inquiry.)

And 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 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.

Documents confirm the DNC opposition researcher attended at least one White House meeting with Ciaramella in November 2015.  She visited the White House with a number of Ukrainian officials lobbying the Obama administration for aid for Ukraine.

With Ciaramella’s name long under wraps, interest in the intelligence analyst has become so high that a handful of former colleagues have compiled a roughly 40-page research dossier on him. A classified version of the document is circulating on Capitol Hill, and briefings have been conducted based on it. One briefed Republican has been planning to unmask the whistleblower in a speech on the House floor.

On the Internet, meanwhile, Ciaramella’s name for weeks has been bandied about on Twitter feeds and intelligence blogs as the suspected person who blew the whistle on the president. The mainstream media are also aware of his name.

Okay, We have a name.

If Eric Ciaramella is the whistleblower, what should happen next?

A speech on the House Floor, as Mr. Sperry reports that one Republican is planning?

How about Sen. Lindsey Graham issuing a subpoena for him to appear before the House Judiciary Committee?

That would be very interesting.

Take a moment to look at all of the Deep State Connections which Ciaramella has.

It is as  if he is the eye in the center of a hurricane.

He has had a ringside seat for every nefarious act of sedition which the Deep State Covert Intelligence Operatives have attempted against President Trump.

And, what is amazing is, he is still employed at CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia where, if he is truly the “whistleblower”, i.e. , Deep State Operative, he can continue to dame the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

It would not surprise me, if Mr. Sperry’s reporting is accurate, and he has a very good track record, so it probably is, if Mr. Ciaramella gents indicted by the Grand Jury that Mr. Dunham will be seating soon.

And, while I am wish-casting, if Former CIA Director Brennen gets indicted as well, I wonder which one would be the first to turn on the other?

Things are definitely getting interesting regarding SpyGate and the Silent Coup.

No wonder Pelosi, Schiff, and company are trying to keep the 24/7 News Cycle Spotlight on their “Impeachment Inquiry”.

Until He Comes,
