Rand Paul Exposes Name of Phony CIA ‘Whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella on Senate Floor
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) exposed the name of CIA whistleblower Eric Ciaramella on the Senate floor on Tuesday, in a move that has enraged leftists desperate to protect the anonymity of the veteran Democrat and deep state operative.
Paul was enraged that Chief Justice John Roberts denied his ability to ask questions about Ciaramella while the Senate impeachment trial was being waged last week.
“I’m going to ask that question again this morning because the Constitution does protect debate,” Paul said. “I think they made a big mistake not allowing my question. My question did not talk about anybody who is a whistleblower, my question did not accuse anybody of being whistleblower, it did not make a statement believing that someone was a whistleblower. I simply named two people’s names because I think it’s very important to know what happened.”
Paul explained his position and how he supports protection but not necessarily anonymity for whistleblowers.
“In the first month of [Trump’s] office, in January of 2017, they were already plotting the impeachment,” he alleged. “And you say ‘Well, we should protect the whistleblower, and the whistleblower deserves anonymity.’ The law does not preserve anonymity. His boss is not supposed to say anything about him, he’s not supposed to be fired. I’m for that.”
Paul exposed Ciaramella’s identity during the final deliberations of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump that is expected to end with an acquittal on Wednesday.
He stood by a sign on the Senate floor, which contained his censored question reading as follows: “Manager Schiff and Counsel for the President, are you aware that House Intelligence Committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella when at the National Security Council together, and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings?”
Big League Politics reported on the censorship of Paul last week by the Obamacare-protecting SCOTUS lawyer:
Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is carrying water for the Democrats during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, blocking questions from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that name CIA whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.
Roberts is helping the Democrats protect the identity of the Democrat operative who created the basis for impeachment with his complaint regarding President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, despite never having heard the call himself…
“I don’t want to have to stand up to try and fight for recognition,” Paul shouted after his question was rejected by Roberts, according to reporter Niels Lesniewski, who said that Paul’s objection was “audible from the galleries above the chamber.”
“If I have to fight for recognition, I will,” Paul said.
Paul continued his push to name Ciaramella on Wednesday, and Roberts rebuked him yet again. Federal law does not prevent Ciaramella from being named in the Senate, but Roberts remains dedicated to limiting the public’s understanding of the case.
Unhinged Democrats are expected to continue their campaign to #ArrestRandPaul due to his agitation against their coup efforts now that he has named Ciaramella as the CIA whistleblower on the Senate floor.
