(Tea Party PAC) – Eric Ciaramella is the CIA officer and Obama administration alum who has been fingered as the so-called “whistleblower” who filed a complaint about President Donald Trump’s July, 2018 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
According to sources that have spoken with RealClearInvestigations (the outlet who originally named the operative as the “whistleblower”) was overheard scheming how to remove Trump from the White House in 2017.
Ciaramella reportedly had a conversation with Sean Misko, an Obama operative who later joined House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) staff about how to oust the sitting president.
“Just days after he was sworn in they were already talking about trying to get rid of him,” an individual in the White House who overheard the conversation told RealClearInvestigations.
“They weren’t just bent on subverting his agenda,” the source added. “They were plotting to actually have him removed from office.”
Big League Politics explains:
Misko left the White House to join Schiff’s staff, where he reportedly served as a liaison between Schiff’s office and Ciaramella following his whistleblower complaint. He helped to run Schiff’s impeachment inquiry as a lead investigator for House Democrats.
The efforts of Schiff, Ciaramella and Misko came to fruition when President Donald Trump was formally impeached last month. The trial is now underway despite the fact that the solidly Republican U.S. Senate is seriously unlikely to flip and convict the President.
These revelations about the conversation between Ciaramella and Misko eviscerate the narrative from Democrats that Ukraine-gate occurred because of the “patriotism” of an “apolitical civil servant.” Instead, it paints the picture of an organized deep state conspiracy working clandestinely to effectively render the political process moot.
“They didn’t like his policies,” another former White House official said. “They had a political vendetta against him from Day One.”
What’s more, two members of the National Security Council heard Ciaramella and Misko making overtly anti-Trump statements in the workplace following a briefing from one-time National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
“They were popping off about how they were going to remove Trump from office. No joke,” said a former colleague to the two Deep Staters.
“After Flynn briefed [the staff] about what ‘America first’ foreign policy means, Ciaramella turned to Misko and commented, ‘We need to take him out,’ ” a military staffer who was detailed to the MSC said. “And Misko replied, ‘Yeah, we need to do everything we can to take out the president.’ “
This military staffer was clear that Ciaramella and Misko were plotting seditious activities due to their hatred for Trump’s “America First” agenda.
Isn’t this exactly what we’ve said was going on all along?
The staffer explained: “By ‘taking him out,’ they meant removing him from office by any means necessary. They were triggered by Trump’s and Flynn’s vision for the world. This was the first ‘all hands’ [staff meeting] where they got to see Trump’s national security team, and they were huffing and puffing throughout the briefing any time Flynn said something they didn’t like about ‘America First.’
“It was so shocking that they were so blatant and outspoken about their opinion,” he said. “They weren’t shouting it, but they didn’t seem to feel the need to hide it.”
