As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Graham: Whistleblower Must Testify or No Senate Trial

According to the Washington Examiner:

Lindsey Graham said the Senate would not seriously consider impeachment unless the whistleblower testifies.

Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures that his committee would not even consider the House’s impeachment unless the whistleblower speaks.

“I consider any impeachment in the House that doesn’t allow us to know who the whistleblower is to be invalid because, without the whistleblower complaint, we wouldn’t be talking about any of this,” Graham said.

The whistleblower was named in a report by RealClearInvestigationsas Eric Ciaramella, a 33-year-old career CIA analyst who worked as Ukraine director on the National Security Council under Obama and briefly as acting senior director for European and Russian affairs under Trump.

The Washington Examiner reported that Ciaramella currently works as a deputy national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia on the National Intelligence Council under the director of national intelligence. It has not been confirmed that Ciaramella is the whistleblower.

  1. The first sentence of the last paragraph is one of the reasons and exactly why we elected an outsider like MrTrump.
    Who developed a title like that and what exactly would someone in that position do to earn his salary?
    There are way too many federal employees in make-work jobs with fake titles.

  2. Let’s assume, strictly for discussion, that Pencil-Dick is actually telling the truth, for once in his crapsack life. Namely, that this MOLE (let’s call him what he is, shall we?) fears for his safety if he testifies, blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda Cinnabon and coffee.

    Well, okay…so IF we assume that’s true, then…what, they can’t stick him in Witness Protection?

    Oh, I already know why they won’t do that: if he goes into WPP, that means he would have to leave Langley. And Pencil-Dick needs as many stooges, in as many agencies, as he can get.

    Ergo:

    This isn’t about protecting a witness: it’s about keeping a stoolie at Langley, in order to keep spying on President Trump.

    QED. Change my mind.
