Donald Trump Jr. sent shock waves through the media landscape Wednesday morning by posting the name of the alleged whistleblower who first brought attention to a July phone call between his father, President Donald Trump, and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Trump Jr’s tweet comes as the president himself has asked the media to expose the whistleblower, a CIA analyst, whose identity has circulated online for weeks.
Responding to a piece by Breitbart titled “Alleged ‘Whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella Worked Closely With Anti-Trump Dossier Hoaxer,” the president’s eldest son tweeted, “Because of course he did!!!”
On the next line, he repeated Breitbart’s headline, including Ciaramella’s name.
That name has been floating around in conservative media circles for days and inside the Beltway longer, according to Rush Limbaugh.
On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul said he knew the whistleblower’s identity and would “probably” release it at some point, adding that for now he wants to focus on the process (presumably House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s impeachment kangaroo court) instead of the accuser’s identity.
As Real Clear Investigations reported last week, Ciaramella is tied to a who’s who of anti-Trump swamp dwellers, including Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey and Democratic operative Alexandra Chalupa, who helped dig up dirt to pad the phony Russia collusion investigation.
AFP news service reported on Donald Trump Jr.’s tweet but refused to name the alleged whistleblower, as have the rest of the establishment media.
Government whistleblowers are not protected from being identified in the media. No such regulation exists, but by obsequiously refusing to print the name, the establishment media are hoping to convince the public that outing the whistleblower isn’t allowed.
The reason, of course, is how deeply the whistleblower likely resides in the swamp, and how his connections would likely taint — and tank — any allegations he made. If it’s Ciaramella, then it’s deep. Very deep. Extremely deep. If it’s someone else, then the concerns about his potential indicia of bias should be explored fully.
All of this is legally moot since, as the call transcript clearly indicates, there was absolutely nothing illegal or even of legitimate concern on the president’s Ukraine call. But since when has a man’s innocence or the truth ever gotten in the way of the left’s hate mobs?
