FYI, Rightwing sites pushing conspiracy the whistle blower is Dem operative.

They're saying it's Eric Ciaramella, a name they've been throwing around for years for their wacky conspiracy theories.

A) It's not Ciaramella, he was nowhere near this case.
B) Even if it was him it wouldn't matter now, the complaint has been confirmed.
C) It wouldn't matter at this point if it was Joe Biden himself, the testimony is clearly evidence of serious crimes no mater who wrote the whistle blower complaint.

2. I heard Mark Davis, fill-in host for Hugh Hewitt, mention Ciaramella's name this morning.

He was using weasel words like, "Such-and-such sources have said, but I don't know for sure, but the whistle-blower's name is 33-year-old CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella. I'm not saying it's him for sure, but others are. And, by the way, let's not call him a whistle-blower; he's a leaker! Furthermore, you can't blow the whistle on the president!"

There was so much spin going on that Republicans tuning in will have their next child or grandchild born dizzy.

4. His name is all over RW sites and Russian bots are pushing this hard

There are zero credible sources saying he's the whistle blower, none. Even it were him it doesn't matter anymore.

This is their Hail Mary right now.

5. This is witness intimidation to the actual whistleblower.

Republicans have reckless disregard for the well-being of the actual whistleblower and this analyst, as well as that of their friends, family members, and coworkers. They are going to get someone hurt or killed by riling up the crazies in their base.
