The identity of the mysterious whistleblower behind the Ukraine scandal that has led to the impeachment inquiry has reportedly been revealed as CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, a registered Democrat who has worked with both former Vice President Joe Biden and ex-CIA chief John Brennan in the past.
Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations is the person who reported on the whistleblower’s identity, yet attorneys representing the whistleblower have continued to refuse to give out the person’s name.
“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,” Sperry wrote.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
Sperry went on to say that Ciaramella’s identity was raised as well “in at least one open hearing held by a House committee not involved in the impeachment inquiry.” The reporter also said that knowledge of Ciaramella as the whistleblower is “an open secret inside the Beltway.”
This is now public and widely circulating. If true, then this explains the Democrat Party/media insistence on secrecy. https://t.co/FyyDPbXy8w

Democrats have been working overtime to hide the whistleblower’s identity, and now the reason for this has become crystal clear. Were Ciaramella’s identity to be revealed, it would expose the fact that these impeachment proceedings are a charade, as the whistleblower is not just a concerned citizen.
“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,” Sperry wrote.
Sperry added that Ciaramella is “a vocal critic of Trump who helped initiate the Russia ‘collusion’ investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.”
If the reports about the whistleblower’s identity are true, it raises grave, fundamental concerns about the basis of this Ukraine investigation—and explains why Washington Democrats continue making every effort to hide information from Americans

Ciaramella’s motives are reportedly already well known to the intelligence community, if not the public.
“He was accused of working against Trump and leaking against Trump,” a former NSC official said.
Ciaramella also reportedly met with the staff of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for “guidance.”
“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 Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst and national security adviser to Trump.
