The plot by CIA operative turned-whistleblower Eric Ciaramella, to remove President Trump from office, in early 2017, has just been uncovered by investigative reporter Paul Sperry.
According to Sperry of Real Clear Investigations, soon after Donald Trump became President in early 2017, Obama mole Eric Ciaramella was overheard in the White House discussing with a fellow staffer how to remove the newly-elected President from office.
That stunning revelation, if true, would certainly explain the reason why Schiff went to extraordinary lengths in protecting the identity of Ciaramella, using the Whistleblower Protection Act, as a pretext for not allowing him to testify under oath.
Sources told Sperry that the staffer with whom Ciaramella was discussing Trump’s removal with was Sean Misko, another Obama holdover from the former President’s National Security team.
Ironically the plot to “takedown” the President was hatched in the White House, right under the noses of the Trump team, without anyone suspecting what the two were plotting.
According to Sperry, “their efforts were part of a larger pattern of coordination to build a case for impeachment, involving Democratic leaders as well as anti-Trump figures both inside and outside of government.”
The President had been in office barely two weeks when Ciaramella, a CIA analyst began thinking of ways to remove him from office.
“Just days after he was sworn in they were already talking about trying to get rid of him,” said a White House colleague who overheard their conversation.
“They weren’t just bent on subverting his agenda,” the former official added. “They were plotting to actually have him removed from office.”
Two former co-workers of the duo acknowledged that Ciaramella and Misko were close friends, who opposed the President’s foreign policy of “America first,” and were much more aligned with Obama’s globalization doctrine.
“They didn’t like his policies,” another former White House official said. “They had a political vendetta against him from Day One.”
The “all hands” meeting, held about two weeks into the new administration, was attended by hundreds of NSC employees.
“They were popping off about how they were going to remove Trump from office. No joke,” said one ex-colleague, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.
A military staffer detailed to the NSC, who was seated directly in front of Ciaramella and Misko during the meeting, confirmed hearing them talk about toppling Trump during their private conversation.
“After Flynn briefed the staff about what ‘America First’ foreign policy means, Ciaramella turned to Misko and commented, ‘We need to take him out,” the staffer recalled. “And Misko replied, “Yeah, we need to do everything we can to take out the President.”
Another unidentified co-worker added that the President’s infamous Ukraine phone call in July of 2019, provided the pretext to take the President down, moreover, Democratic operatives burned by the Russian collusion hoax, followed by the Mueller Report, had been looking for something to hang on the President, the phone call was their “smoking gun.”
Ciaramella immediately seized the moment by contacting the congressional office of Adam Schiff, after another Obama hold-over disclosed the President’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The Schiff staffer turned out to be his friend Sean Misko who helped Ciaramella file a whistleblower complaint against the President in August over his call to Zelensky alleging Trump threatened to withhold military aid from Ukraine unless they agreed to investigate the Biden crime family.
It’s worth noting the back-story to the Biden connection, is that Ciaramella traveled extensively with the VP to Ukrain, and may have direct knowledge regarding corruption and the Bidens, and perhaps the actual reason to hide behind the whistleblower immunity status.
For that reason alone, I believe the Senate should indeed ask for additional witnesses, the first one being Hunter Biden, followed by the former VP, Ciaramella, and Misko.
