Dirty Democrats and their allies in the media are doing everything in their power to hide the identity of their so-called “whistleblower,” whose second and third-hand accounts of a July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky, ignited secret Trump impeachment hearings in the basement of Capitol Hill.
Last week, Paul Sperry wrote an article for Real Clear Politics, where he allegedly exposed the identity of the whistleblower.
Sperry wrote: For a town that leaks like a sieve, Washington has done an astonishingly effective job keeping from the American public the name of the anonymous “whistleblower” who triggered impeachment proceedings against President Trump — even though his identity is an open secret inside the Beltway.
The name of a government official fitting that description — Eric Ciaramella — has been raised privately in impeachment depositions, according to officials with direct knowledge of the proceedings, as well as in at least one open hearing held by a House committee not involved in the impeachment inquiry. Fearing their anonymous witness could be exposed, Democrats this week blocked Republicans from asking more questions about him and intend to redact his name from all deposition transcripts.
The Washington Examiner has established that the alleged whistleblower
“is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he “was detailed to the National Security Council at one point.” A retired CIA officer toldthe Washington Examiner, “From everything we know about the whistleblower and his work in the executive branch then, there is absolutely no doubt he would have been working with Biden when he was vice president.”
Last night, during a Trump rally in Kentucky to show support for Republican Governor Matt Blevin, GOP Senator Rand Paul blasted the media, demanding that they do their jobs and name the whistleblower.

For weeks, Democrats have been demanding that the identity of the “whistleblower,” who met with the Democrat House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff’s office before filing his whistleblower report, remains anonymous. Democrat impeachment comrades insist that the whistleblower who was Obama’s “point man on Ukraine, is a registered Democrat, a former CIA analyst, and has ties to Susan Rice, former VP Joe Biden, and the alleged “head of the snake” on the phony Trump-Russian collusion scandal, former CIA Director John Brennan.
Q: How did the Obama regime handle a whistleblower, who was a 24 -year employee of the ATF, when he courageously stepped forward to expose Obama’s crooked AG Eric Holder?
A: They fired him in a Denny’s parking lot.
According to the Town Hall – Special Agent Vince Cefalu has worked for the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms for more than 25 years. On top of successfully placing dozens of hard criminals behind bars throughout his career, Cefalu has received promotions and consistently positive evaluations. When he started raising his voice about ATF corruption and illegal wiretapping in 2005, things changed. Tuesday evening, Cefalu was asked to meet Special Agent in Charge of the San Francisco Field Division Joseph Riehl at a Denny’s Restaurant near Lake Tahoe. When he arrived, he was served termination papers in the parking lot. Classy move. The exchange was secretly recorded by a confidential source.
The video, that YouTube has since removed, was recorded by a confidential source and shows Cefalu approached by two ATF management representatives including Joseph M. Riehl, Special Agent in Charge of the San Francisco Field Division, which encompasses Northern California and Nevada field offices.
In the video, Riehl, can be seen talking to Cefalu through his Jeep window and reportedly telling him he couldn’t leave because he had to sign papers.
Watch, as Cefalu explains what happened to him when he blew the whistle on the Obama regime’s Fast and Furious operation:
Town Hall reported on the November 2014 settlement that was eventually reached between the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Vince Cefalu, after he was inappropriately fired in a Denny’s parking lot and retaliated against for exposing corruption inside the agency. A trial date was set, but was canceled after a settlement was reached.
Cefalu will receive $85,000 in damages from ATF and legal fees have been mitigated. ATF is also required to expunge his record of any negative or adverse information. The termination notice issued to Cefalu at Denny’s will be rescinded. After three decades of service, Cefalu retired in November 2014.
Former ATF agent, Vince Cefalu explains why he blew the whistle on Fast ‘N Furious:
My name is Vincent A. Cefalu. I am a special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms under the U.S. Department of Justice. Welcome to our nightmare. I say “our” because dozens of us can’t write a single article, and I have been asked and am privileged to speak on behalf of my peers who have not had the opportunity to voice their concerns related to ATF mismanagement, particularly with Operation Fast and Furious. This grotesquely dangerous and reckless operation should have never been considered, much less allowed to occur. It employed the unprecedented practice of allowing fi rearms to be transferred to violent criminals without any interdiction effort at all, in hopes of somehow later identifying high-level Mexican cartel members. But it was the pattern of gross mismanagement that had been allowed to exist in ATF—and that I witnessed—which fostered an environment that unleashed this operation, violating public trust on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.
At no time in my career prior to becoming a complainant against my own agency—the agency I love and have been honored to serve— could I have ever been convinced I would be the poster boy for whistleblowers and challenges to corrupt government. As a young Marine military policeman, I was thrilled, proud and honored to be in law enforcement. I never considered it work….
But I ended up the lead agent in a case with huge vendetta overtones by my state and local counterparts, where members of an ad hoc task force insisted on fast-tracking wiretap attempts against the suspects. I refused. When I reported this officially, senior management retroactively fabricated justifications for the actions they were preparing to take against me. This led to a network of frustrated agents and inspectors, which ultimately resulted in my being contacted regarding the gun-walking practices and cover-ups related to Fast and Furious. I took this information to Congress and advocated others to do the same.
In the 18 months leading up to Fast and Furious, Special Agent in Charge Bill Newell’s actions required that the agency had to pay out over a million dollars in settlements which should have led to his removal for the related conduct, had it ever been investigated and documented. Special Agent in Charge George Gillette had been disciplined multiple times, and his subordinates had logged dozens of complaints related to his incompetence and mismanagement. Had ATF dealt with them at the time, the Fast and Furious program would never have been undertaken. However, by attacking those who exposed corruption, ATF was able to keep their golden boys in place. This process was repeated all over the country (Newell has since been relocated to D.C. headquarters, but not fired). So pronounced was the mismanagement that ATF logged more complaints than either the DEA or FBI per agent. This is notable because the latter two are much larger agencies.
