Donald Trump Jr. Defends Naming the Suspected Whistleblower

According to the Washington Examiner:

Donald Trump Jr. named CIA officer Eric Ciaramella as the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The president’s eldest son, 41, sent out a link via Twitter to a Breitbart News story that named Ciaramella as the “alleged” whistleblower. Ciaramella, 33, was named in a RealClearInvestigations report last week. “Because of course he did!!! Alleged ‘Whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella Worked Closely with Anti-Trump Dossier Hoaxer,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

Trump Jr. defended his tweet after facing backlash. He tweeted, “The entire media is #Triggered that I (a private citizen) tweeted out a story naming the alleged whistleblower. Are they going to pretend that his name hasn’t been in the public domain for weeks now? Numerous people & news outlets including Real Clear Politics already ID’d him.” Trump Jr.’s new book is entitled Triggered.

One Response to Donald Trump Jr. Defends Naming the Suspected Whistleblower

  1. Junior repeated information in the news. He’s not taking credit for breaking the news or creating some sort of plagiarism. He is repeating something that he heard so I fail to see how this is news worthy.

    Shiff’s Interview of another witness mentions the same name. Did he out him too?
