If the above headline is giving you an anxiety attack, you’re not alone; in that a newly released report has uncovered several staffers of Rep. Adam Schiff have had close ties to the alleged whistleblower, Eric Ciaramella, moreover one staffer in particular named Sean Misko has been described as “close friends” for years with the alleged whistleblower.
Misko reportedly joined Schiff’s staff at the House Intelligence Committee in August, the same month the so-called whistleblower’s complaint was filed after first reportedly interfacing with a staffer for Schiff’s office.
This immediately calls into question the genesis of Schiff’s impeachment probe, and his obvious claim he didn’t know the identity of the whistleblower, which now seems like a moot point in light of the unfolding characters bubbling up to the surface, regarding the decade’s old corruption within Ukraine.
The second staffer of Schiff named Thomas Eager is currently in a fellowship program at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Congressional Fellowship, a bipartisan program funded in part by the corrupt natural gas firm, Burisma Holding Company.
That’s the same Ukrainian company at the center of the corruption scandal implicating both the former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and in which Rep. Adam Schiff’s staffer Sean Misko in 2015 also participated in a year-long fellowship program.
Breitbart News also uncovered a link between Acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, the same individual who appeared as a key witness for Schiff and a meeting in August organized by the Atlantic Council (funded by Burisma Holding Company), in which staffer Thomas Eager met with Ambassador Taylor.
Eager’s August trip to Ukraine was billed as a bipartisan “Ukraine Study Trip” in which ten Congressional staffers participated.
A closer look at the itinerary for the August 24th to August 31st trip shows that the delegation’s first meeting upon arrival in Ukraine was with Taylor.
Multiple enquires by Breitbart News have thus far proved unsuccessful.
The dates are significant, in that Eager’s visit to Ukraine sponsored by the Burisma-funded Atlantic Council began 12 days after the so-called “whistleblower” officially filed his August 12th complaint.
This once again calls into question Schiff’s credibility regarding an accurate timeline between Schiff’s office meeting with the so-called whistleblower.
In an interview on September 17th, Schiff told MSNBC, “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to.”
On October 2nd, a spokesperson for Schiff acknowledged “At no point did the committee review or receive the complaint in advance.”
However the New York Times, ironically on that same day reported that Schiff received some information through an unnamed House Intelligence Committee aide initially contacted by the so-called “whistleblower,” described as a CIA officer.
Moreover, the link between the Atlantic Council aside from Burisma holding lists other interesting donors like Google, and billionaire activist George Soros’s Open Society network.
The donor that has raised a few eyebrows was the law firm of Perkins Coie, the same law firm that represented the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and also helped draft the Google-tied CrowdStrike firm to aid with the DNC’s allegedly hacked server.
The Washington Examiner also had reported on the friendship between Misko and Ciaramella, calling the duo “close friends.”
“My understanding was that they were friendly with one another,” said the former NSC official, who was described as senior to Ciaramella. “They would walk around the halls. Get lunch together and stuff like that.” He described them as “very much cut from the same cloth,” and their friendship as “bro-like.”
No doubt there’s a lot more here to uncover, however, what seems apparent is the President’s concern regarding Ukraine was well-founded, that former government officials were conspiring with a hodgepodge of deep state bureaucrats, to unseat a duly elected President.
