Lindsey Graham 'Confident' Whistleblower Is Somebody From The 'Deep State'
Republican Senator says whistleblower is a friend of Schiff
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said that publics' perspective on the Democrat's impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump will shift with revelations the whistleblower could be from the “deep state."
Graham explained during a Sunday interview on Fox News that the so-called whistleblower’s connection to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff makes the impeachment effort “stink to high heaven.”
“When you find out who the whistleblower is, I’m confident you’re gonna find out it’s somebody from the deep state,” said Graham.
“You’re gonna find out that they had interactions with Schiff," he added.
"This thing's gonna stink to high heaven, and the only reason we don’t know who the whistleblower is, that it hurts their cause.”
Last month, Neon Nettle reported on RealClear Investigation's article revealing the name of the person they claimed the infamous anti-Trump “whistleblower,” identifying the person as CIA analyst and former Joe Biden employee Eric Ciaramella.
RCI's Paul Sperry reports that Ciaramella’s name has been raised privately in impeachment depositions.
His name was also brought up in at least one open hearing held by a House committee that was not involved in the impeachment inquiry.
Ciaramella also had a close relationship with several members of the Obama administration, including former CIA director John Brennan.
Earlier this week, Neon Nettle also reported that the "whistleblower" was former Vice President Joe Biden special guest for an exclusive State Department banquet in October 2016.
Ciaramella, a former Biden employee, has been identified by a number of news outlets as the “whistleblower” whose complaint triggered the Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Graham stated that the Democrats' impeachment effort has nothing to do with finding the truth about the president's conduct.
“They're not trying to find the truth here,” said Graham.
“If you really wanted to know the truth about why Joe Biden said what he did about the prosecutor, ‘If you don’t fire this guy, we're gonna cut off the money,’ well, let’s find out," he added.
"Was Hunter Biden in the crosshairs of the prosecutor? This is not about Schiff finding the truth; this is about Schiff trying to destroy the Trump presidency.”
“If you think Schiff is looking for the truth, you shouldn’t be allowed to drive anywhere in America because that’s a ridiculous concept.”
