Republicans Laugh at Schiff’s Outrageous Claim He Doesn’t Know Name of “Whistleblower”

 

Republicans House Members in the room for Wednesday’s Intelligence Committee public impeachment inquiry hearing laughed when committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed he does not know the name of the whistleblower whose anonymous second-hand claim of misconduct by President Trump with regard to Ukraine instigated the partisan impeachment process by Democrats.

The reaction by Republicans was reported by Alex Miller of Newsy, “Schiff says he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower, entire front row of republicans laugh.”

Axios reporter Alayna Treene reported Republicans laughed and sneered, “Republican members of Congress in the audience laughed & sneered to each other when Schiff said this”

Schiff’s dubious claim (falsely reported as a “fact check”) was also challenged online by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), “In response to @Jim_Jordan, Adam Schiff claims he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower. If he doesn’t know their identity, how will he prevent them from being named?”

Daily Mail reporter David Martosko, “Adam Schiff claims he doesn’t know the identity of the Ukraine whistle-blower. How is this possible? His staff met with the person.”

Trump War Room co-host Raheem Kassam noted problems with Schiff’s denial, “Schiff says he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower, despite his staff being in contact with the whistleblower. Ok, but if he doesn’t know the identity, how can he as the Intel Chairman stop the whistleblower being named? And how is the name being redacted in docs?”

Presumably Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was one of those laughing at Schiff from his front row seat.

Unfortunately, Gohmert and his fellow Congressmen were placed by Schiff in “Bob Uecker” front row seats in the back of the room behind the media.

Intel Committee Republicans set up a sign on their side of the dais that said, “93 days since Adam Schiff learned the identity of the whistleblower.

Chairman Mao Tse Schiff is not amused.

Nikki Haley: John Kelly And Rex Tillerson Tried To Recruit Me To “Undermine” President Trump

By Tim Hains – 11/11/2019

“CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell interviews Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and Trump administration Ambassador to the United Nations, who talks about the president’s rhetoric and tweets and being asked by fellow Cabinet members to take sides against the president.

Haley condemned [former WH chief of staff] John Kelly and [former Secretary of State] Rex Tillerson for having a “sidebar plan” against the president, saying their behavior went “beyond the Constitution” and was “offensive.”

“Instead of saying that to me, they should have been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan. It should have been, go tell the president what your differences are and quit if you don’t like what he’s doing,” Haley said. “But to undermine the president is really a very dangerous thing.”

“Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country,” Haley writes in a new book. “Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president’s decisions was because, if he didn’t, people would die.”

O’Donnell asked Haley: “You memorialized that conversation? It definitely happened?”

“It absolutely happened,” said Haley. “And instead of saying that to me, they should’ve been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan. It should’ve been, ‘Go tell the president what your differences are, and quit if you don’t like what he’s doing.’ But to undermine a president is really a very dangerous thing. And it goes against the Constitution, and it goes against what the American people want. And it was offensive.”

John Kelly responded, telling “CBS Sunday Morning”: “If by resistance and stalling she means putting a staff process in place … to ensure the (president) knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating so he could make an informed decision, then guilty as charged.”

O’Donnell asked: “Do you think ultimately the president will be impeached and removed from office?”

Haley replied: “No. On what? You’re gonna impeach a president for asking for a favor that didn’t happen and giving money and it wasn’t withheld? I don’t know what you would impeach him on. And look, Norah, impeachment is, like, the death penalty for a public official. When you look at the transcript, there’s nothing in that transcript that warrants the death penalty for the president.”

“To be clear, it was not a complete transcript. There are still things that are missing from it. And in it, he does say, ‘I would like you to do us a favor, though.'”

“The Ukrainians never did the investigation. And the president released the funds. I mean, when you look at those, there’s just nothing impeachable there. And more than that, I think the biggest thing that bothers me is the American people should decide this. Why do we have a bunch of people in Congress making that decision?”

Whistleblower’s Lawyer Reverses Course – Refuses to Let Client Eric Ciaramella Speak to Senate Intel Committee

CAP

by Cristina Laila

Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) told reporters on Thursday that attorneys for the anti-Trump CIA leaker Eric Ciaramella have suddenly done a “reversal” after their initial contact with the committee.

Ciaramella’s lawyers sent the Senate Intel Committee a letter stating they were anxious and eager to come in and speak to congressional investigators — and now they are backing out.

Burr insisted he would protect the identity of the ‘whistleblower’ even though investigative reporter Paul Sperry published the snitch’s name — Eric Ciaramella.

Perhaps this is why the pajama boy is backing out — he can’t take the heat after the conservative media outed him, his liberal bias and orchestrated coup with Schiff and other Trump haters.

The fake news liberal media however continues to protect the CIA leaker by refusing to say his name.

“We protect whistleblowers. We protect witnesses in our committee,” Burr told reporters.

The Senate Intel Committee chaired by the worthless RINO Richard Burr and his Vice Chair Mark Warner are currently reviewing the process behind the handling of the whistleblower complaint that was filed in August.

As part of his committee’s investigation, Burr wants to talk to the ‘whistleblower’ but Eric Ciaramella’s lawyers have clammed up.

“I think they were disingenuous when they sent us a letter that they were willing to come before the committee,” Burr said.

Ciaramella’s lawyers offered congressional investigators written answers to questions under oath, however Burr said this is “not acceptable.”

Ciaramella and his fellow coup plotters can only thrive in the shadows. Sunlight is the best disinfectant which is why he is now hiding from congressional investigators.

 

CRACKDOWN: Twitter is Censoring Users for Exposing Name of Alleged ‘Whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella

Social media is trying to prop up the deep state witch hunt against the President.

By Shane Trejo

The alleged deep state “whistleblower” who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump over his correspondence with Ukraine – now widely believed to be 33-year-old CIA officer Eric Ciaramella – is being protected by a political establishment desperate to keep the impeachment circus going.

Social media is taking cues from the fake news, which steadfastly refuses to disclose Ciaramella’s name. Twitter is even restricting and temporarily banning accounts that mention Ciaramella as the Big Tech giant grows desperate to prevent the truth from going viral.

Unfortunately for Twitter, the name is already widely circulating despite their best efforts. The fake news freaked out after Donald Trump Jr. posted Ciaramella’s name on his Twitter account earlier today.

CAP

Stunning incompetence at the hands of the Democrats has also put the reported name of the whistleblower out there for the public to see. House Intelligence Committee staffers, led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), apparently forgot to redact Ciaramella’s name when they publicly released a transcript of acting U.S. Ambassador for Ukraine Bill Taylor’s testimony on Wednesday.

CAP

The story started to gain traction last week after Ciaramella was named as the likely whistleblower in a report published by journalist Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations (RCI). This has been largely ignored by the fake news and is now being censored by social media platforms, as the coordinated suppression effort rears its ugly head yet again.

Tom Kuntz, who works as editor of RCI, compares what he is seeing from the establishment to a mafia code of silence.

“The silence has been deafening,” he told The Week. “It’s almost like there’s a code of omerta [the Mafia vow of silence] about what media organizations can report. . . . There’s a herd mentality and a reluctance to cut against the grain.”

The fake news defends their right to stifle the truth from being known to the public.

“I’m not convinced his identity is important at this point, or at least important enough to put him at any risk, or to unmask someone who doesn’t want to be identified,” said Dean Baquet, executive editor of the New York Times. “Pretty much everything has now been discussed or confirmed on the record, multiple times, by others in the administration. So I’m not sure I see the point of unmasking someone who wants to remain anonymous.”

Of course, the whistleblower’s identity is newsworthy because of Ciaramella’s extensive ties to the Democratic Party, which reveals that he is a partisan operative rather than a legitimate whistleblower acting in the public interest. It was reported on Wednesday that Ciaramella worked intimately with individuals who were influential in circulating the infamous and debunked Steele dossier to kick off the Russian collusion investigation that ultimately yielded nothing on the President.

Ciaramella also worked closely with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA director John Brennan. He also took orders from Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice. He is a deep state operative with an ax to grind, and biased fake news reporters and social media providers will not be able to obfuscate the truth from the public for very much longer.

 

Speier Says Democrats Plan To Release Transcripts Of Impeachment Testimony This Week

Posted By Tim Hains

California Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier told CBS’s “Face The Nation” that the transcripts from the House impeachment inquiry are going to be released in the coming week, calling them “very telling.”

A member of the House Intelligence Committee, Speier says that the public will see “all of the transcripts that are going to be released, probably within the next five days.”

“I think the transcripts are going to start to be released next week, and that’s going to give the American people an eye on exactly what we have heard, and what we have heard is growing evidence of grounds for impeachment,” she said.

“I don’t know if they’re all going to be released on the same day, but they’re going to be very telling to the American people. There’s no question now whether there’s a quid pro quo,” she said.

“I don’t know if they’re all going to be released on the same day, but they’re going to be very telling to the American people,” she added. “There is no question now whether there was a quid pro quo, and now the question the Republicans are trying to throw out is, ‘Well, was there corrupt intent?’ Wel corrupt intent is defined in part by whether the president has lied.”

“I think they’re going to begin very soon,” Speier said. “We have one more week of interviews that will take place and then I’m pretty confident we’re going the move into a public hearing setting in which the House Intelligence Committee, along with the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Oversight Committees, will start to place in the public’s hands the information.”
