Has anyone other than Paul Sperry revealed his identity? I honestly don’t know.
Don Jr and bill O’Reilly.
Donald Trump Jr. just tweeted Eric Ciarramella’s name today and the media is responding predictably.
Before that RealClearPolitics broke the name (even as everybody already knew it), and Donald Jr. said 7 different magazines have published the whistle leaker’s name. To that extent, anybody can say “as reported by X magazine, the whistle leaker is Eric Ciaramella.”
Everybody in DC and the media knows Ciaramella is the whistle leaker. The problem is, the cowardly congressional GOP can’t subpoena him or call him to testify until somebody somewhere “official” publicly reveals his identity in such a way he can be said to be “outed”. That takes a mainline newpaper, a mainline cable TV outlet, a mainline TV news station, a quote from a national politician, or some such incontrovertible source.
As long as it is just the alternate media, everybody who knows his name has to go on pretending nobody knows his name. The most hilarious thing is when they go so far as to say “he or she”. They know bloody well it is a man.
This guy is on the ball.
