Paul Sperry/Real Clear Investigations: You Know That Guy You Thought Was the First Fake Whistleblower? Yeah, He's the First Fake Whistleblower.

Surprising few, Sperry reports the first fake whistleblower is Eric Ciarmella, who was evicted from the White House in 2017 for leaking to the press.

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.

...

And he 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.

This is my shocked face.

Google Alexandra Chalupa and Ukraine to discover which leftwing convicted domestic bomber was squiring her around Urkaine looking for "evidence."

Sperry talks to Fred Fleitz, who says that literally everyone knows who the fake whistleblower is. They're not hiding his name for safety reasons -- everyone who wants to know the name does know his name -- but because they don't want anyone to ask him questions about his history with Brennan, Biden, and Chalupa.

So they're keeping him anonymous -- well, fake anonymous for a fake whistleblower -- merely as a tactic to avoid having him questioned.

Adam Schiff forbid the second fake whistleblower, Vindman, from answering Republican questions -- questions about who he's been leaking to.

Did he leak to Ciaramella? Did he leak to Ciaramella with the understanding that Ciaramella would play messenger service for him and leak to Schiff and the partisan press?

Did Vindman also leak those phone calls with foreign leaders? Does he know who did leak them?

We can't ask him -- Adam Schiff has forbidden his witness from answering questions.

If they're doing that for Vindman, but still want him to talk at all, imagine what they're so afraid of Ciaramella that they're hiding him like a dead hooker's corpse.


Update: O really?
