Hmmmm, is the storyline getting a bit trickier to follow?

 

For those with a short attention span, consider the title below with this from the article:

RealClearInvestigations named Ciaramella as the whistleblower last week. The report cites U.S. officials who said the invite to Ciaramella, "a relatively low-level GS-13 federal employee, was unusual and signaled he was politically connected inside the Obama White House."

 

Alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella was Biden guest at State Department banquet

Eric Ciaramella, the alleged Ukraine whistleblower, was a guest of Vice President Joe Biden at a glitzy lunch in October 2016 to honor the prime minister of Italy.

 

Biden co-hosted the banquet with former Secretary of State John Kerry for then-Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. Ciaramella, who is of Italian heritage, was among the U.S. officials who accepted an invitation. This week, 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.

 

Ciaramella, a career CIA analyst, 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. He is now accused of being the official who filed a complaint about a July 25 phone call in which President Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into a conspiracy theory regarding CrowdStrike and investigate Biden, a Democratic candidate for president in 2020, in relation to his son Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine.

 

Ciaramella, 33, is listed among dozens of other people who were invited to the October 2016 event hosted by Biden under the category "WH EOVP," or the White House Executive Office of the Vice President, in an unclassified State Department document released through the Freedom of Information Act. An "A" appears next to his name, indicating he accepted the invitation.

 

On Oct. 6, the Washington Examiner reported the whistleblower worked with Biden during the Obama administration and is a career CIA analyst with deep expertise in Ukraine policy.

 

Out of over 400 possible guests for the State Department event, 115 people were listed as having accepted invitations, although key Trump-Russia investigation figures such as former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch all declined their invitations, according to the guest list. Other notable figures such as then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, former House Speaker Paul Ryan, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, John and Tony Podesta, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice received invitations too.

 

Besides inviting Ciaramella, Biden’s office, as opposed to the State Department or another entity, sent invitations to more than thirty other people, including Obama press secretary Josh Earnest, Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco, Obama speechwriter Ben Rhodes, and Obama national security adviser Susan Rice.

 

RealClearInvestigations named Ciaramella as the whistleblower last week. The report cites U.S. officials who said the invite to Ciaramella, "a relatively low-level GS-13 federal employee, was unusual and signaled he was politically connected inside the Obama White House."

 

While Trump and his allies have called for the whistleblower to be identified, the whistleblower's lawyers and Democrats argue that the person's identity no longer matters. Still, Ciaramella's name has been invoked by GOP investigators as they question impeachment witnesses, getting his name on record.

Guy is 33 years old with about 8 years experience and he's a Ukrainian expert?  Hired under O'boy.  No wonder O's foreign policy was a disaster.  They should be weeding these clowns out now while they have the chance.

Rudy is investigating potential criminal activity.  Which he is an expert on.  I haven't heard anyone offer evidence Rudy is involved in negotiating anything relating to their conflict with the Russians.

Uh, because he hasn’t. But don’t tell the TDS afflicted there is no evidence of the shadow foreign policy they malign.

Rudy's in possible legal jeapordy himself and just hired 3 criminal defense attorneys. His paymasters have been indicted. Not a good look for somebody supposedly investigating criminal activity. As I see it.
