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.”
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.”
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???
