Trump-Ukraine Whistleblower Suddenly Won't Testify; Lawyers Break Off Negotiations Amid New Revelations

A CIA officer who filed a second-hand whistleblower complaint against President Trump has gotten cold feet about testifying after revelations emerged that he worked with Joe Biden, former CIA Director John Brennan, and a DNC operative who sought dirt on President Trump from officials in Ukraine’s former government.

According to the Washington Examiner, discussions with the whistleblower – revealed by RealClearInvestigations as 33-year-old Eric Ciaramella have been halted, “and there is no discussion of testimony from a second whistleblower, who supported the first’s claims.”

Ciaramella complained that President Trump abused his office when he asked Ukraine to investigate corruption allegations against Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as claims related to pro-Clinton election interference and DNC hacking in 2016.

That’s the point when it needs some serious adjustments.

…..and make no mistake. Russia is experiencing an even greater manifestation of the same dynamics. Russia is going through a Reagan-style era of economic development. Trickle down economics – relying greatly on its oligarchs to build industry and jobs. Maybe even an earlier Carnegie-era style of development. It’s a phase I think is perfectly natural but I hope is matched quickly enough with an expansion of opportunity for an entrepreneurial middle class. I think they’re acutely aware of that in the Kremlin and trying to guide a transition but their fiercest internal critics say they’re just there to accumulate wealth… Read more »

Many who do so also give to charities who provide support to those who are unable to support themselves. The usual support systems of the past, the… Read more »

I never thought I’d live in a country that shed every ounce of morals, decency and the will to be generally honest. Guess they were right about be mindful of filling your positions with people who are only loyal to Israel.
