Eric Ciaramella, the alleged whistleblower of Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, was mentioned in Ambassador William Taylor’s testimony. The testimony occurred on October 22, while the RealClearInvestigations article on Eric Ciaramella that was widely circulated by Republican figures was published on October 30. The transcript of the testimony, which occurred behind closed doors, was released Wednesday as part of the Democratic Party’s effort to make the impeachment inquiry more transparent.
Donald Trump may be on his presidential death-bed. Talks of impeachment following the Ukraine scandal lead many to believe the New York businessman is in his final days. Acid-wash the state of corruption. Hunt down those that look to foreign leaders to meddle in the American political process. We need pure, straightforward, old-fashioned democracy in the US. Or at least that’s what those who still have a degree of faith in the policial system say. However, Trump is nothing but a ritual sacrifice. Cutting out his heart on the altar of the holy democratic process would only serve to mask the hollow morality of Washington D.C.
