The management at Fox News has ordered all of their television hosts not to mention the Ukraine whistleblower by name. The alleged whistleblower is Eric Ciaramella, an anti-Trump Democrat who has close ties to former Vice President Joe Biden, who is responsible for sparking the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Some Fox News hosts including host Sean Hannity want to release the name of the whistleblower however management is warning against it.
Check out what Breitbart reported:
CNN Business states that while some Fox News personalities want to use the name reportedly linked to the “whistleblower” complaint, bosses have warned against the move. On October 31, an unnamed executive emailed staff that the network had not “independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower” and advised to “NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests” in connection to the so-called “whistleblower’s” identity, according to the report.
The demand from Fox News management to staff includes some of the network’s most-high profile personalities, including Sean Hannity. Jeanine Pirro, host of Justice with Judge Jeanine, suggested on Friday that hosts were to follow the guidelines, telling viewers that she and other employees “apparently can’t say Ciaramella’s name.” On Monday, Hannity said he “confirmed independently” the so-called “whistleblower’s” name, though he opted against revealing this name.
“You know what, I will play the game for a little bit,” he told viewers. “I will take the lawyers’ threats that they’re going to sue me; it wouldn’t go anywhere.”
Last week, Paul Sperry from Real Clear Investigations dropped a report alleging that the whistleblower was registered Democrat Eric Ciaramella who has close ties to former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and corrupt former CIA Chief John Brennan.
The media completely ignored this report considering they work for the Democratic party and this report would undermine the impeachment inquiry completely.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. started a wildfire on Twitter when he spread the whistleblower's name by sharing a Breitbart article.
The liberal media immediately went nuts. "The White House says the president nor any senior administration official was aware in advance that the president’s eldest son was going to tweet out the name of the alleged whistleblower," said journalist Yashar Ali. "I’ve also asked if they approve of his decision to do so."
He continued by quoting Don Jr.: 2. "“The outrage on this is BS. And those pretending that I would coordinate with The White House to send out a Breitbart link haven’t been watching my feed for a long time," Don Jr tells me via text-message in response to questions about his tweet."
Trump Jr. later sent out another tweet: "The entire media is #Triggered that I (a private citizen) tweeted out a story naming the alleged whistleblower. Are they going to pretend that his name hasn’t been in the public domain for weeks now? Numerous people & news outlets including Real Clear Politics already ID’d him."
The whistleblower's name has been in the public domain for some time now. Last week Real Clear Investigations. released the following:
RealClearInvestigations is disclosing the name because of the public’s interest in learning details of an effort to remove a sitting president from office. Further, the official's status as a “whistleblower” is complicated by his being a hearsay reporter of accusations against the president, one who has “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate" -- as the Intelligence Community Inspector General phrased it circumspectly in originally fielding his complaint.
Federal documents reveal that the 33-year-old Ciaramella, a registered Democrat held over from the Obama White House, previously worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan, a vocal critic of Trump who helped initiate the Russia “collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Further, Ciaramella (pronounced char-a-MEL-ah) left his National Security Council posting in the White House’s West Wing in mid-2017 amid concerns about negative leaks to the media. He has since returned to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.
