Senator Rand Paul, who is a Trump supporter, is calling on the Ukraine whistleblower to testify in front of Congress.
According to Town Hall:
During an interview on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall”, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Eric Ciaramella’s previous work alongside former Vice President Joe Biden makes Ciaramella a “material witness” who needs to “be brought in” to testify.
Co-host Vince Coglianese asked Sen. Paul if he believed reports that alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella is the individual behind the complaint against President Trump and his phone conversation with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Coglianese: “Senator Rand Paul a week ago you were calling on the media to name the whistleblower saying ‘look you got the name, just name him’ and we’ve seen a report in Real Clear Politics that the guy is Eric Ciaramella. We’ve also seen journalist Yashar Ali claiming he has three anonymous sources who have confirmed that its Eirc Ciaramella. Is it your understanding Senator that Eric Ciaramella is the whistleblower?”
Sen. Paul: “I think Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony and then I think it will be ultimately determined at that point. But I think he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there, when Hunter Biden was working for the Urkainian Oligarch, so simply for that alone I think he is a material witness and needs to be brought in. …”
It remains unclear if Ciaramella will testify but if Adam Schiff has his way Ciaramella likely will not.
