The name of the whistleblower at the heart of the Trump impeachment proceedings is regarded an open secret around DC, however the name doing the rounds on the internet has remained out mainstream media.
From what the American public have been told the whistleblower fits the description of Eric Ciaramella. Democrats have this week blocked Republicans from asking any questions about him and plan to redact his name from all deposition transcripts.
Ciaramella is a democrat who previously worked for Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan, He has been a vocal critic of President Trump, and assisted in beginning the Russian “collusion” campaign against him.
On Thursday, Democrats plan a House vote on new impeachment-inquiry rules that would give Republicans for the first time the ability to call their own witnesses. Only, their requests must first be approved by the Democrats. So there is a good chance the whistleblower, perhaps the most important witness of all, will remain protected from critical examination.

Now that she has began proceedings failure to deliver will be seen has unacceptable by the radicals within her party. And with the President saying he will release the transcript of his conversation with the Ukrainian President things might very soon turn uncomfortable for Pelosi.
Furthermore the first casualty of any investigation may be Biden himself. If it found that he did use his influence to help his son, it will cost him his chance in the 2020 elections. Even if he has done nothing wrong the appearance that his son has built a highly profitable career free-riding on his VP father’s back will sit very uncomfortable with progressives across the nation.
