WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 10, 2019 – Internet sleuths may have just identified the so-called Ukraine ‘whistleblower’ that made claims regarding the President’s phone call with Mr. Zelensky; claims that turned out to be grossly misleading and highly inaccurate.
Transcripts subsequently released of the phone call itself disprove the claims of the gossip blower. According to Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit:

This provided some hints as to who the so-called whistleblower could be. Some enterprising researchers discovered information that may have led to the identity of this dangerous leaker.

“@FOOL_NELSON” on Twitter has identified someone who certainly seems to fit the mold of what we know about the so-called whistleblower. In fact, this person has even been described back in 2017 as a potential leaker who was pro-Ukraine, anti-Russia, and who was out to harm the Trump administration. Now, what are the odds of that?
According to Foreign Policy Magazine:
alt-right blogger Mike Cernovich published an article attacking an assistant to National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, claiming the previously low-profile civil servant wanted to “sabotage” President Donald Trump.
The piece described Eric Ciaramella as “pro-Ukraine and anti-Russia” and alleged, with no evidence, that he was possibly responsible for high-level leaks. The response to the piece included online threats of violence against Ciaramella, which contributed to his decision to leave his job at the National Security Council a few weeks early, according to two sources familiar with the situation.
The trend has unnerved the career intelligence analysts, diplomats, security experts, and military officers who are accustomed to operating outside the political arena. Coupled with White House talking points accusing government employees of jeopardizing the country’s security through leaks to the media, the online abuse threatens to damage morale and politicize institutions long seen as impartial and above partisan combat.
“It’s singling people out and then publicly engaging in character assassination,” said Bruce Riedel, a former career CIA officer who served in the agency for over 30 years and is now a fellow at the Brookings Institution. “It will certainly send an intimidating effect throughout the bureaucracy.”
Federal law is designed to shield career government employees from political or other retaliation unrelated to their performance on the job, but the administration has significant leeway to sideline them. – Foreign Policy Magazine
This article clearly is not objective or bias-free. It’s written by insiders comfortable with the way things are inside the beltway. However, it provides a stunning example of how wrong the magazine was on so many issues. Indeed there were Obama holdovers who have described their mission to ‘get Trump’ at all costs in an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times.
The Brookings Institute hosts Robert Kagan, husband of Victoria Nuland, on its board of directors.
What has been uncovered:
This would seem to fit with publicly disclosed details about the whistleblower.
When looking into this Eric Ciaramella, we come across none other than Ali Chalupa, DNC operative involved in digging up dirt on Trump and Manafort back during the 2016 election.
