A photo has emerged showing alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella shaking hands with President Obama in the Oval Office.
The image, obtained by the Washington Examiner, was posted on a close friend’s wedding website one year after Ciaramella left President Trump’s White House.
In the photo, the then-Ukraine director on the National Security Council at the White House is shown smiling as he shakes the hand of Barack Obama in front of a portrait of Abraham Lincoln.
A person described by the Examiner as “a Republican close to the White House” cites the exchange as proof of Ciaramella’s deep state bias.
“This photo confirms that career intelligence and foreign service officials serving at the highest ranks of the Trump White House have their own agenda and their own policy viewpoints,” the source claimed.

Raises Questions About Whistleblower’s Motivations
“This picture raises serious questions about how this sham impeachment process started,” a senior Trump administration told the Examiner. “It’s no surprise that [Adam] Schiff has now changed his story about letting the falsely labeled whistleblower testify.”
While the image itself doesn’t specifically speak to Ciaramella’s motivation – the report notes that aides often got a “prized” photo with Obama before he left office – his resume combined with the image certainly tells a story.
Ciaramella isn’t just a politically neutral, concerned citizen.
He is a career CIA officer and a registered Democrat who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan. He was Biden’s guest at a State Department banquet in October 2016.
A report by RealClearInvestigations notes that Ciaramella is “a vocal critic of Trump who helped initiate the Russia ‘collusion’ investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.”

Why Democrats Are Hiding Him
Since the impeachment inquiry got underway, Democrats led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff have done everything in their power to conceal Ciaramella’s identity from the public.
This image is one example of why.
He is everything the resistance party is – melodramatic over mundane exchanges with foreign leaders, willing to promote obvious collusion hoaxes, unhinged and determined to undo an election, and now a clear Obama fanboy.
That is why they’ve tried hiding him from the public.
“The whistleblower statute protects the whistleblower from having his name revealed by the inspector general,” Senator Rand Paul recently explained. “Even The New York Times admits that no one else is under any legal obligation.”
Question: “The whistleblower laws protect the whistleblower. You know it’s illegal to out a whistleblower?”

Thus, there is no legal obligation to protect Ciaramella. Making it clear that the only reason Schiff and the Democrats are trying to hide him is because a partisan anti-Trumper as your main impeachment witness is not a good look.

Many ”True News” sites like this one are coming out with the actual facts. They are becoming the REAL NEWS organizations – the new MSM. Hopefully the people can phase out the ”Fake News” media eventually. We don’t like – nor appreciate – being lied to.
Its my opinion that Obama and his controler VJ as well as the DNC are behind the coup to remeove the President. After the various reports come in that I am sure will be clear.
The one thing these impeachment proceedings have established is that Adam Schiff is a scared little punk that has no leadership skills what so ever. That’s why no Republican Congress men or women pay him any respect. They have to work with the nervous little rodent.
Obama’s think tank is behind 90 percent of everything that is occurring in the House.
aides often got a “prized” photo with Obama before he left office
…”prized”…?…to be photographed with an ineligible, partially black, racist homosexual muslim is “prized”…not only is ciaramella a lying, traitorous snitch, but a mental defective to boot…
Eric C in the white house shaking hands with Obama, who was there illegally .. This sounds more like a coup every day.
Losing your Faceplant account has a downside?
Last time I posted to Facebook about Eric Ciaramella, I got banned for three days and then warned I could lose my account if banned again. Has anybody else gotten flack about posting about this guy?
VOTE IN 2020 PLEASE
It would be interesting to see if all concerned would submit to a polygraph examination. Shiff’s results would likely look like a seismic event. Unfortunately “Momma” Pelosi is allowing her offspring (Schiff) to act out for as long as he wants. Unfortunately, patriotic American citizens are imprisoned and helpless to end the charade. The court jester needs his dose of adoration!
Such a complete slime bag, protected by the slime bag he went to to file his claim. He and Adam Schiffless belong together, in the same Federal Prison cell for the rest of their lives. Hopefully that will happen….soon!
Still waiting for Barr to be released
I Agree with RedMustache and They ALL must be Prosecuted, Indicted and Jailed Including The Primary Person Behind it All Which I Suspect BO!
I wish the whistleblower would just come forward and testify. I personally don’t care, because “proof is in the pudding,” and we have the pudding, which is the transcript and good old Rudy blabbing that he and the president want investigations on the Bidens. Here’s probably what the most important part of the questioning might sound like.
Dem or Rep question: “What do you know of this supposed “quid pro quo” that may have occurred?”
Whistleblower answer: “Not much really except I heard that something was said in that phone conversation that may or may not be appropriate. I felt it’s up to you to decide if there was one.”
Dem reply: “Thanks for bringing that forward, the White House gave us a transcript of that call, and indeed there is enough evidence that Trump may have asked for a favor from a foreign country to investigate a possible future opponent in the upcoming election, and we will investigate further, and then put it to a vote.” “Thank you for your time.”
When I see all those that orchestrated these treasonous acts, behind bars, against the President, I will believe there is truly justice for ALL
Hey Schiff, we know who the whistle blower is and we also know that you know who he is too. That makes you a liar Schiff! Go ahead, vote to impeach Trump so when it gets to the Senate, we can call you as witness and we’ll get you for PERJURY. You will pay dearly for your crime. This country is sick of your sham of an impeachment inquiry and we’re sick of you. Time to retire you from your position and from government completely. Rewrite you’re resume….if you can…..and start looking for another job. Maybe you can be a story teller because you’re good at telling lies and making up stories.
President Trump exercising due diligence before handing over taxpayer cash to the Ukraine is not a crime, it’s a duty.
On the other hand, Obama secretly handing over pallets full of cash and gold bullion to Iran in exchange for a worthless Hillary election enhancing Nuke agreement, would fit the classic legal definition of a Quid Pro Quo crime, and an illegal in kind contribution from a foreign government as defined by the FEC.
A deal with the devil and the devil himself
Plus and besides a President of the United States has every right to conduct his own foreign policy quid pro or no.
LIES LIE suzy!
Just a slight addition to the story. The Trump investigation was started by Republicans. They stopped the investigation when they accepted Trump as their candidate. Then the investigation was passed over to the Dems. And here we are now.
Obama and Clintons colluded with Russia to investigate Trump before he was even President…INVESTIGATION….Former V-P Biden bullied and did same thing while still VP. Obama should have been impeached as he did exactly what they are accusing President of….doing this for Hillary. She was attacking Trump in order to keep him from becoming President. Hope I am making sense. I am just very frustrated with this entire impeachment process…Democrats have not supported the President who was elected by the people. They refuse to work with him over anything. Need to end this “witch hunt”
It sure does look like it doesn’t it.
Is the fictional whistle blower one of Obama’s butt-boys?
When is this circus going to end? Then we can impeach Schiff, Pelosi, et al for treason and the rest of Liberal Democrats. Then maybe we can have our Country back.
They , the DNC ,socialist lefties to repeat myself, may really believe they are not guilty of what they do if they can just somehow despite all the evidence to the contrary convince President Trump cheated, lied and is greedier than they are. Hear that? Its the hot air escaping their balloon.
Schiff and the democrats are guilty of obstruction, lying under oath, and treason for attempting a coup to remove President Trump from office.
Mark Levin a Constitutional Attorney says it’s Tyranny what the Dems are doing.
I have always believed that Schiff-for-brains WAS the “whistleblower,” GreenBug! He started this whole “whistleblower” BS to give him an excuse to launch his IMPEACHMENT FARCE. Of course Ciamaralla is a LOYAL Demmunists minion who would cop to being the whistleblower if he was told to do so, but that is very different than going in front of a Congressional committee and LYING ABOUT it under oath–hence Schiff’s narrative about “protecting” the whistleblower from exposure by preventing him from testifying. He’s only covering his OWN traitorous, complicit FANNY from the perjury charge he RICHLY deserves!
If Schiff does not let the Republicans know who the Whistleblower is and allow the Republicans into the hearing and question him/her then Schiff needs to be charged as the Whistleblower and be questioned by Republicans. This witch hunt and spending Americans money was not authorized by the people and it needs to stop. The Dems have stopped all important things they need to be doing for this witch hunt. I do not want my taxes being spent on this anymore. They work for the people. If some of the people want to keep paying then take it out of their taxes only. I want my taxes used for the Wall, Illegal Immigration and other projects.
Hey, they want Trump removed so they will do anything and use everyone.
All well and good, but there’s still nothing incriminating in the transcripts. There was no pea in the “whistleblower’s” whistle.
