Report Confirms Whistleblower Broke The Law As Demands Grow For Investigation
The anti-Trump “whistleblower” who is alleged to be Eric Ciaramella, broke the law and it has resulted in many demanding an investigation into the whistleblower.
Eric Ciaramella, the alleged whistleblower/Adam Schiff’s pet that was the catalyst for the Democrat’s impeachment efforts concealed certain interactions he had from the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) which he is required to report.
According to Fox News investigative reporter Catherine Herridge, ICIG Michael Atkinson testified before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that the whistleblower did not inform him that he had already contacted Democratic staff working for REp. Adam Schiff (D-Cali), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

The complaint the whistleblower filed has an entire page dedicated to disclosing anyone who the whistleblower may have spoken to about the issue. The Federalist reports what the forms require:
An entire page of the whistleblower form is dedicated to collecting information about previous disclosures so the ICIG can take appropriate action in response to the complaint.
“I have previously disclosed (or am disclosing) the violations alleged here to (complete all that apply),” the form requires the complainant to attest. The form includes checkboxes for disclosures to other inspectors general, other agencies, the Department of Justice, the Government Accountability Office, the Office of Special Counsel, other executive branch departments, Congress and its respective committees, and media. It also includes a separate question asking the complainant to detail those previous disclosures to the ICIG.
A picture of the page is below
Officials have confirmed that the whistleblower failed to disclose the previous contact with House Democrat’s in his complaint to the ICIG. The dates of those contacts were not reported on nor were the people that the whistleblower spoke to revealed either.
The law states if a false statement/concealment of a material fact is punishable by a fine of up to $10,000, or up to five years imprisonment. It’s time for an ethics investigation to be launched and to find out when and who the whistleblower spoke to and what did they speak about.
Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) has said that “sooner than later,” he is going to have the whistleblower testify before his committee.
