Makes one wonder…

Why is the media and the left working their asses off to protect Eric Ciaramella?

Is he the ‘whistleblower’? Based on any number of articles, most probably…

Some interesting background, HERE, and some interesting pushback from NBC on whether the rules had changed, HERE. Public Law 101-12, the Whistleblower Protection Act, does NOT provide for anonymity for the whistleblower, only that there can be no reprisals against him/her from the employer. Nothing about not allowing the name to become known.

Yet Facebook is deleting any articles or mention of his name, citing harm-

So I put up a simple one line post- Why is facebook protecting Eric Ciaramella? An hour later, it was gone…

Facebook says it is deleting the name of the person who has been identified in conservative circles as the whistleblower who triggered a congressional impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s actions.

The company said Friday that mention of the potential whistleblower’s name violates Facebook’s “coordinating harm policy,” which prohibits material that could identify a “witness, informant, or activist.”

Full article, HERE. And Breitbart, HERE, which is actually a feed to Facebook… Interesting…

And his lawyer Zaid is apparently a piece of work, and avowed Never Trumper too…

Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”

Article, HERE.

And I’m not even getting into the whole cluster with Schiff’s staff ‘assisting’ the whistleblower, etc… But it is enough to make one wonder… NO first hand info, all second/third hand, VERY professionally written/footnoted/etc. Looked more like something a lawyer would do rather than an actual complaint, etc…

And now Schiff et al are saying the whistleblower is no longer needed, yada, yada, maybe because they don’t want him questioned about who/how he came to find out the ‘information’ he supposedly got.

Where does this crap end???

Edit- Schiff will not allow the Republicans to call the whistleblower as a witness. Kangaroo court anyone???

  1. The crap ends with President Trump winning a second term and the Left taking to the streets.

  2. Where does this crap end? When we start hanging these traitors and people stop voting for them ever time their name comes up on a ballot and when we the people have finally had enough of this crap.

  3. It’s not even a religion, it’s a cult. Cults canNOT tolerate being questioned.

  4. The original transcript was classified. The “whistleblower” did not have a need to know. Therefore, classified material was compromised. Therefore, some individuals committed felonies. Who are they?

  5. Bad- Yep, the meltdown will be epic!

    Cederq- Good point.

    Orvan- You’re right, it HAS become a cult.

    McC- Yep, damn good question.

    WSF- Rhetorical answer, of course not. Otherwise we wouldn’t be here now…

  6. I’m thinking the editors of Facebook are college dropouts, who are still trying to figure out how to count change. They’re only qualified to repeat what their Communist overlords allow, and struggle to fry bacon without catching their homes on fire.

  7. When will this stop? When Trump blows them all out of the water over the Marianas Trench.

  8. The Trump Administration has had an unusually high number of leakers leaking classified information in order to ‘get’ Trump.

    One hopes, one day, all these leakers will pay the appropriate price for their treason. Because that’s what it is, isn’t it? Leaking secrets in order to harm the USA?

    Hmm.. (clickity, clackity, (ENTER))

    trea·son
    /ˈtrēzən/

    noun: treason; noun: high treason; plural noun: high treasons

    the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

    Well… sure looks like treason, as this is betrayal of this country and their oaths in order to overthrow the lawfully elected government.

    And what’s the penalty for treason? Hmmmm.. (clickity, clackity (ENTER))

    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

    Well, howdy… I know what penalty my black little heart earnestly wishes for…

    • At least you still have that option for traitors. Blair had it removed from our legal system It’s almost as if he was worried about something…

    • It’s not treason, Beans, it’s SEDITION. (Treason in a non-war-time environment).

  9. Jess- I wish I could give them that much credit…

    Sam- Hopefully!

    Beans- You and me both!

    Bad- Yeah, we wondered about that…

  10. For what it is worth*, Senator Lindsey Graham just pronounced any trial of President Donald Trump “dead on arrival” in the Senate if the whistleblower doesn’t testify during the “impeachment inquiry.”

    * Yeah, that could be a whole ‘nother topic of discussion, I know.

  11. Does Horowicz come out soon?
    Durham?
    Wasn’t there a guy in Colorado?
    Trump needs to issue letters of Marque on the traitors.
    That might get something done.

    • Ooooh! I think I can mount a 3lbr in the back of my van. I can go a-privateering amongt the politicos…

      Some swivel guns out of the passenger doors. Get some of those Cold Steel Cutlass machetes, a brace of pistols, maybe a rifleman in the roofrack crow’s nest…

      Hmmm. Maybe get an old school bus, that way I could fit a full broadside in on both sides and a sternchaser and carry a crew of scalliwags… Arrrrhhh!

      Make sure to do it in winter as a greatcoat is a tad warm to wear in the summer.

    • I suspect that IG Horowitz’s superiors will not release the FISA report until after the law is renewed (December 15, IIRC). After all, they wouldn’t want the abuses to actually lead to any real opposition or rollback of the surveillance state.

  12. Ed- NOT soon enough… I can’t help but wonder if this is an avenue to try to stop those reports/investigations.

    Beans- ROTF… You would… Need a sniper up top though… I want a GOOD mattress…

    • Marines to the Fighting Tops!

      Heh. Always wanted to say that…

  13. well huh it almost sounds like the dems want to run a good old soviet style star chamber if they could get away with it

  14. I expect the Senate will subpoena Charia-whatever to appear and speak his piece; but IF NOT, automatic dismissal of all charges, and we all get fired up to re-elect the MAGA Trumper!!

  15. Where does this crap end?
    Where such political shenanigans usually ends; the rope or the bayonet.
