NSC leaker Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified on day 3 of the Adam Schiff Show Trial. On that day, House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) asked Vindman if he had discussed Trump’s phone call with anyone outside the White House.
Vindman said he spoke to two people, one of them being George Kent, a State Department employee and ‘someone in the intelligence community’. who he refused to name but in his memoir he said that that person was Eric Ciaramella.
He also made the same admission in his public testimony. That means the whistleblower learned all he knew about the phone call with the Ukrainian president from Vindman. And as we now know, Vindman lied about Trump making a quid pro quo deal with Zelinsky. Trump offered no such deal but Joe Biden did make such a deal when he had the prosecutor investigating Hunter fired in exchange for a one billion dollar loan guaranty that Ukrain desperately needed.
Vindman feels safe in disclosing his criminal behavior because he knows that Democrats never send fellow Democrats to prison, they merely cover up the crimes. That means the whistleblower learned all he knew from Vindman himself and he did not admit to it during the Schiff witch hunt because it could have ended the impeachment process. And to think this jerk was in the military, but on whose side? He certainly was not on the side of truth or justice. I hope the sale of his book turns out like his military career, an utter failure.
House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) quickly interjected when Nunes began to drill down to find out which agency this second anonymous person worked for.
Schiff said he wanted to “protect the whistleblower” and wouldn’t let Vindman answer.
Nunes then pointed out that Vindman previously testified in a closed-door deposition that he DID NOT know the identity of the whistleblower and if that were true then how would he know to keep the second person’s name private?
But during his public testimony, Vindman admitted to being the primary source of the leak to the whistleblower (Eric Ciaramella).
In his upcoming memoir, Vindman now describes himself as the whistleblower in Trump’s sham impeachment trial.
