CNN Concedes Republicans Make Valid Point


Written By Tiffany Layne |

There’s a certain irony in the fact that CNN has graced our news twice today.

Earlier, we dissected an article in which CNN didn’t adhere to the high journalistic standards expected of the mainstream media.

Or shall I say “once expected,” because it seems people are content with #FakeNews all too often. Nevertheless, CNN published an article in which the very title was an erroneous claim.

The headline read: GOP concedes Trump may have withheld aid for probes but says it’s not impeachable.

Trending: Did You See Comey’s Tweet on Impeachment Acquittal?

As we pointed out, CNN’s senior congressional correspondent, Manu Raju, clearly tried to pass off his opinions as statements of fact. Of course, we’ve grown accustomed to CNN’s inability to stick to the facts. Thus, it’s always surprising when a member of the CNN staff has a moment of clarity.

But that’s exactly what happened shortly after the Justice Roberts refused to read Rand Paul’s question during the impeachment hearing.

Justice Roberts said he didn’t want to reveal the identity of the whistleblower. (Even though his identity has been established by several media sites.) Thus, a debate ensued.

And Rand Paul took his question to Twitter.

As we previously reported:

“My exact question was: Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together,” Paul stated, “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.”
Paul said his question was not in regard to the whistleblower’s ID, but about whether leftover partisan Obama officials conspired with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, now the head impeachment manager in the Senate, to devise an impeachment scheme prior to the beginning of the proceedings.
“My question today is about whether or not individuals who were holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings,” Paul tweeted. “My question is not about a ‘whistleblower’ as I have no independent information on his identity.”

Here’s where the shock and awe comes in.

CNN’s John King agreed with the Republicans.

In fact, King even proposed some questions of his own.

As Fox News explains:

CNN anchor John King defended Republicans on Thursday, arguing they made a “legitimate point” in asking why the intelligence community whistleblower — who brought the complaint that prompted Trump’s impeachment — hadn’t been questioned.
“You’re asking the Congress, the Senate now, to remove the President of the United States,” King said. “It’s a legitimate point for the president’s team and the Republicans to say: ‘Shouldn’t we go to the very origin of this?’”
His comments came after Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tried asking a question that mentioned the name of a person reported to be the whistleblower. Chief Justice John Roberts shut down the question, which Paul described as “atypical.”
King said he wouldn’t help Paul “air his grievances” over the issue, but proposed certain questions for Democrats.
“Republicans make a good point — the whistleblower started all of this. Why hasn’t the whistleblower been questioned?” he said. “Shouldn’t the House Democrats have found a secure way to do that? It’s a legitimate point of debate as we go through this.”
“Is outing the whistleblower in a public setting the way to make your point? I think we could have a conversation about that … the Democrats’ argument is that just about everything the whistleblower alleged has been proven through other sources, so we don’t need to do this.”

It’s sad when using common sense becomes headline-worthy. But the mainstream media is so far removed from reality that this rare show of intelligence clearly blew our minds today! As for tomorrow, expect democrats to prepare for defeat.

Breaking! Ukraine Whistleblower Tied to Russian Hoax


Written By Tiffany Layne |

Trump, dynamite, Biden, #TeamKJ, #KevinJackson, whistleblower, leaker

Democrats have yet to call off this impeachment farce. Thus, more evidence comes to light on a daily basis.

And the evidence proves an attempted coup morphed into the Russian hoax. And now, we learn the “leaker” in the Russian hoax is the CIA “whistleblower.”

Isn’t it ironic? During Obama’s adminstration, this man worked with the Bidens in the Ukraine.

As the Gateway Pundit reports:

Last night on The Ingraham Angle on FOX News, Laura Ingraham invited Sara Carter and author Lee Smith on to discuss the individual who was instrumental in setting up President Trump in the Russia and Ukraine Hoaxes.

Of course Ingram didn’t mention his name. Instead she urged the whistleblower to come forward. However, her panel made the point that this guy isn’t a whistleblower at all. Instead, he’s an anti-Trump conspirator. Further, he’s guilty of manufacturing evidence against the President. However, sources such as the Gateway Pundit specifically named Eric Ciaramella as the whistleblower. Here we have lying mole, said to be a CIA operative, who made a false report to Adam Schiff in order to take aim at the president. And not only is he linked to the CIA, but he was clearly planted in the White House.

New rumors connect this ‘whistleblower’ to a 2020 Presidential campaign. And while I’m uncertain which campaign, it could turn out to be Joe Biden’s, especially considering Ciaramella’s previous ties to Biden.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Michael Atkinson, the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, told members of Congress that the whistleblower had a “professional tie” to a 2020 Democratic candidate. He had written earlier that while the whistleblower’s complaint was credible, he had shown “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate.”
A retired CIA officer toldthe Washington Examiner, “From everything we know about the whistleblower and his work in the executive branch then, there is absolutely no doubt he would have been working with Biden when he was vice president.”

If you dig through the news enough, you can start tying the bits and pieces together. Yahoo published this: 

But Gateway Pundit points this out:

Funny, when you click on the name ‘Eric Ciaramella’ in the post above, you get this –
Cernovich reported in June, 2017, that McMaster promoted Ciaramella in spite of being connected to Susan Rice in Obama’s White House – West Wing officials confirmed to Cernovich Media that Eric Ciaramella, who worked closely with Susan Rice while at NSC, was recently promoted to be H.R. McMaster’s personal aide. Ciaramella will have unfettered access to McMaster’s conversations with foreign leaders. (Ciaramella’s old boss, McMaster, was in the news siding with the whistleblower.)

Even Politico drew lines between Trump supporters in the White House and people like Ciaramella, who are clearly ‘deep state’ –

Trump political appointees were believed to frequently talk to journalists who worked for conservative media outlets. For months, those outlets published names of career Civil and Foreign Service officers in the NSC and other government agencies whose loyalties they deemed suspect. Career staffers who had joined the U.S. government many years, sometimes decades, earlier were suddenly cast as Obama loyalists determined to derail Trump’s agenda as part of a “deep state.”

The people targeted included a State Department civil servant of Iranian descent who’d joined government under the George W. Bush administration; a highly respected Foreign Service officer who dealt with Israeli issues; and an NSC staffer who dealt with European and Russian issues. The latter, Eric Ciaramella, reportedly left the NSC after receiving death threats. Another staffer targeted by conservative outlets was Fernando Cutz, a Latin America expert and top aide to McMaster; at one point he had to temporarily get police protection. (Cutz was maligned by conservative websites in part because he earned a master’s degree from the University of Arkansas’ Clinton School of Public Service, thus supposedly linking him to another Democratic president.)

The list goes on and on.

For example, Ciaramella was Obama’s NSC Director for the Ukraine. By default, that connects Ciaramella to Biden. Additionally, Schiff’s leakers connect to Biden. And then there’s the whole “dinner with James Clapper and James Comey” that Ciaramella attended. Could this be where the hoax started?

Now, according to the Ingraham Angle, there was a meeting at the White House in 2016. This meeting addressed Biden’s family and their work in the Ukraine. Ciaramella, who is also a key player in the Russian hoax, arranged the meeting.

So this all leads to one big question. When will Democrats call on Ciaramella to testify under oath? Because we all know the Democrats just want the truth. <Insert sarcastic sigh here.>

Republicans to Subpoena Whistleblower, Hunter Biden, Alexandra Chalupa


Written by Kristina Wong |

WASHINGTON, DC – NOVEMBER 20: Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) listens as Gordon Sondland, the U.S ambassador to the European Union, testifies before the House Intelligence Committee in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill November 20, 2019 in Washington, DC. The committee heard testimony during the fourth day of …Alex Edelman/Getty Images

Republicans intend to subpoena testimony and documents related to the anonymous whistleblower, Hunter Biden, and Democratic National Committee contractor Alexandra Chalupa, according to a letter they sent to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA).

“Although Speaker Pelosi promised that Democrats would ‘treat the President with fairness,’ you have repeatedly prevented Republicans from fully and fairly examining issues central to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry,’” House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Oversight and Reform Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) wrote in a November 20, 2019, letter.

“We therefore write to inform you that we intend to subpoena testimony and records in an attempt to inject some semblance of fairness and objectivity into your one-side and partisan inquiry,” they said.

On the whistleblower, they wrote that the whistleblower’s testimony is “necessary for a full and fair understanding of all relevant facts.” They wrote:

The Inspector General of the Intelligence Community reported that the whistleblower had a political bias against President Trump and public reports suggest that the whistleblower worked closely with former Vice President Joe Biden. In addition, there are multiple discrepancies between the whistleblower’s complaint — the piece of evidence central to the Democrat’ inquiry — and the closed testimony of the witnesses. For these reasons, we must assess the whistleblower’s credibility and the sources he or she utilized to develop the anonymous complaint.

On Biden, they wrote that since witnesses raised the issue of Hunter Biden getting paid $50,000 per month for sitting on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company that was under investigation, learning more about it would be “directly relevant to the inquiry”:

According to the New York Times, Hunter Biden was ‘part of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connected Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama administration.’ Reports suggest that Burisma paid Hunter Biden $50,000 per month through a company called Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC. Because witnesses explained that Hunter Biden’s presence on Burisma’s board raised concerns during the Obama Administration and President Trump briefly raised this issue during his phone call with President Zelensky, this information is directly relevant to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry.’

On Chalupa, they also wrote that her testimony would be “directly relevant” since witnesses have testified that Trump believed the Ukrainians “tried to take [him] down”:

In August 2016, less than three months before the election, Valeriy Chaly, then-Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States, authored an op-ed in a U.S. newspaper criticizing candidate Trump. In addition, in January 2017, Politico reported about Ukrainian government’s effort to ‘sabotage’ the Trump campaign in 2016 by working closely with the media and a Democratic National Committee consultant named Alexandra Chalupa. The Politico article detailed how Chalupa ‘traded information and leads’ with staff at the Ukrainian embassy and how the Ukrainian embassy ‘worked directly with reporters researching Trump, [Trump campaign manager Paul] Manafort, and Russia to point them in the right directions.’ Because witnesses testified that President Trump believed that Ukraine ‘tried to take [him] down’ in 2016, this information is directly relevant to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry.’

Nunes and Jordan concluded:

The American people see through your sham ‘impeachment inquiry.’ The American people understand how you have affirmatively prevented Republicans from examining serious issues directly relevant to the issues. Therefore, to provide some basic level of fairness and objectivity to your ‘impeachment inquiry,’ we intend to subpoena the anonymous whistleblower and Hunter Biden for sworn testimony in closed-door depositions. We also intend to subpoena the following entities for record relevant to the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry’:
    1. The whistleblower for documents and communications relating to the drafting and filing of the complaint dated August 12, 2019, and the personal memorandum drafted on or around July 26, 2019.
    2. Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC and any subsidiaries or affiliates for records relating to Hunter Biden’s position on the Board of Directors of Burisma Holdings; and
    3. The Democratic National Committee for communications with Ukrainian government officials and for records relating to Alexandra Chalupa.
“We look forward to your prompt concurrence. Your failure to concur with all of these subpoenas shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process,” they wrote.

Rep. Dan Bishop Names Alleged Impeachment ‘Whistleblower’: ‘He’s Not Voldemort’

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) became the first member of Congress to publicly name the alleged “whistleblower,” whose second-hand complaint sparked the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, on Twitter Monday evening.

Bishop on Monday responded to a tweet from an individual who suggested that the GOP refrain from using the term “whistleblower,” instead referring to him as  “the leaker” or “the operative” or “the deep state spy in the White House.”

The North Carolina congressman said he agreed “100%,” noting that he refuses “to cower before the authoritarian intimidation campaign.”

“He’s not Voldemort. And he’s not a bona fide whistleblower. Even if he were, he wouldn’t be entitled to secrecy. Eric Ciamarella is a deep state conspirator,” Bishop wrote. “He needs to testify now”:

Eric Ciaramella is a career CIA analyst whom Real Clear Investigations suggests is the likely so-called “whistleblower” in a report last month. However, Ciaramella had been floating around as the possible “whistleblower” long before the bombshell report.

Ciaramella also has links to the infamous anti-Trump dossier and reportedly “interfaced about Ukraine with individuals who played key roles in facilitating the infamous anti-Trump dossier produced by Fusion GPS and reportedly financed by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee,” as Breitbart News reported.

Bishop’s move now places extra pressure on tech giants like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube (owned by Google parent company Alphabet), and WikiPedia, which have all suppressed usage of Ciaramella’s name and penalized users for sharing it. “We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name,” Facebook told Breitbart News last week — but said the company “will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in debate.” As the first member of Congress to use the name in a public setting, Bishop certainly fits the description of a public figure airing Ciaramella’s name in debate.

Despite popular belief, the law “does not explicitly prevent anyone other than the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) who received the complaint that triggered the impeachment inquiry from outing the identity of the so-called ‘whistleblower,’” as multiple establishment media outlets have admitted.

Republicans listed the “whistleblower” on their list of witnesses that they wish to testify – a list which also includes Hunter Biden, Biden’s business partner Devon Archer, Fusion GPS researcher Nellie Ohr, and Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian-American consultant for the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Schiff dismissed the Republicans’ list.

“This inquiry is not, and will not serve, however, as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit, or to facilitate the President’s effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm,” Schiff stated.
