Either Adam Schiff ‘s staff overlooked the name of alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella from the transcript of acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor before releasing it or Eric Ciaramella isn’t the whistleblower.

Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson reported that on page 236 of Taylor’s transcript, Taylor is asked if the name “Eric Ciaramella” rings a bell for him. This question is asked by the Oversight Committee Republicans’ chief investigative counsel, Steve Castor.

There have been rumors that once Schiff’s staff saw that Ciaramella’s name had not been redacted, they pulled the transcript. However, as of this morning, his name is still unredacted on page 236.

According to The Daily Beast, Democrats have accused Republicans of using witness interviews as a “backdoor” way of outing the whistleblower. Members of the conservative media have been publishing the alleged whistleblower’s name ever since investigative journalist Paul Sperry’s October 31st  report which clearly named Ciaramella. His name began appearing on some conservative websites in early October.


The debacle comes amid revelations that one of the whistleblower's attorneys called for a coup against President Trump in 2017.
