House Republicans to subpoena whistleblower for public testimony

Republicans say they are going to subpoena the so-called whistleblower at the center of this phony House impeachment inquiry for public testimony:

DC EXAMINER – Republicans intend to subpoena the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment effort against President Trump.

Rep. Jim Jordan said that Republicans will attempt to get the whistleblower to testify before Congress in a public hearing.

Several House Republicans have called on the whistleblower to testify as part of the investigations into Trump’s relationship with Ukraine and his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The whistleblower complaint alleges that Trump may have improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s ties to a Ukrainian energy company.

Some Republicans, including Trump, have called for the identity of the whistleblower, who is allegedly career CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella, to be revealed.

Ciaramella, 33, was Ukraine director on the National Security Council during the end of the Obama administration and remained there during the early months of the Trump administration when he was briefly acting senior director for European and Russian affairs.

On Oct. 7, the Washington Examiner reported that Ciaramella is now a deputy national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia on the National Intelligence Council, reporting to the director of national intelligence.



Here’s the bottom line. There’s no way that Shifty Adam Schiff is going to let Republicans call the so-called whistleblower to testify.

The corrupt House rules that Pelosi passed last week give Schiff the veto power he needs to keep the whistleblower’s identity secret by keeping him out of any committee hearings.

Which is amazing really, considering he is at the very center of this partisan impeachment witch hunt.
