Rep. Ratcliffe Reveals Why Schiff Is Withholding Transcripts Of ICIG Michael Atkinson’s Closed-Door Testimony

(Gateway Pundit) – House Intelligence Chairman and impeachment ringleader Adam Schiff (D-CA) still won’t release transcript of Intel Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson’s October 4 closed-door testimony even though he has released 15 other witness transcripts.

Atkinson testified for over 8 hours, so why won’t Schiff released the transcripts?

Congressman John Ratcliffe (R-TX) a member of the House Intelligence committee, revealed why Schiff is hiding the transcripts.

Investigative reporter Paul Sperry this week asked, “Why is Schiff still withholding transcript of ICIG Michael Atkinson’s Oct 4 closed-door testimony which lasted 8+ hours? He’s released 15 witness transcripts but is still hiding Atkinson’s. Also, what’s Atkinson’s connection to Obama officials including David Laufman?”

Recall, Paul Sperry revealed Eric Ciaramella is the ‘whistleblower’ in an explosive Real Clear Investigations exposé last month.

Congressman Ratcliffe responded to Paul Sperry, “I know why Paul Sperry. It’s because I asked IG Atkinson about his “investigation” into the contacts between Schiff’s staff and the person who later became the whistleblower. The transcript is classified “secret” so Schiff can prevent you from seeing the answers to my questions.”

The anti-Trump ‘whistleblower’ 33-year-old Eric Ciaramella is a registered Democrat, worked for Obama, worked for Biden, worked for CIA Director John Brennan, he’s a vocal critic of Trump and he helped initiate the ‘Russia collusion’ hoax investigation.

The conservative media has named Ciaramella, but most lawmakers (save for a few) along with their stenographers in the media have refused to say his name.

Mr. Ciaramella is a CIA officer who specializes in Russia and Ukraine who was detailed to work in the National Security Council under Susan Rice in 2015.

He was then moved into the West Wing in 2017 to ‘fill a vacancy’ where he was able to ‘see and read everything.’

ICIG Michael Atkinson altered the whistleblower form to allow for second-hand information, which allowed suspected Schiff whistleblower Eric Ciaramella to present a bogus accusation against the President.

Although, the form should not have been accepted based on second-hand information and because it was about the President of the United States (who is not in the IC), Atkinson accepted the complaint.

The whistleblower later attempted to edit the form he originally provided. The original form stated that the whistleblower did not talk to Congress before filing the form but after it was discovered that he had met with Adam Schiff’s team in Congress, the whistleblower attempted to edit his form.

Schiff orchestrated the latest coup attempt and used Eric Ciaramella as a ‘whistleblower’ to give legitimacy to his impeachment show trials and now he’s hiding the truth from the public.


  1. I believe that “we the people” should demand to see the voting behind the “squad” members, I cannot believe that this trash was voted in legally; none of them are americans, none have our interests at heart, only their own need for publicity and money. Lots of money. the sheer stupidity of their protestations ranks them as needing careful cerebral counsel?. Their outrage is childish, have they actually attended real schools? Although when reading about schooling these days in NY and anywhere where Caranza (?) is in charge.???

  2. The only way Mr. Trump is going to get impeached is with a Tank. Now all kidding aside If Mr. Trump did do anything that looks a little shady. I don’t believe it is an impeachable offense. A secure of the president would be sufficient and get on with the peoples business.

  3. Why is the US Government — the most powerful in the world — unable to stop the on-going coup by the Democrats. If these hoaxes are not stopped, they will indeed take over the government (have they already?) and not even pretend to care about the Rule of Law and the Constitution. Are Socialist-Democrats so far down the road to absolute power that they can lie at will and not be held accountable either by the press or the Republicans? Leaks from the IG Horowitz’ investigation seems to indicate “no crimes were committed” and the “FISA warrant was legally granted.” If this is true, it appears we have indeed lost our Republic. The fix is in. Obama killed us with poisoned bureaucrats posing as Americans.

  4. The term “witch hunt” is a gross understatement !!! This is an attempt by Democrats to overturn a election! It is beyond outrageous and they’re going to find themselves being voted out of office !!! The president is doing a great job for our country and our citizens !!!

  5. Now when any one is doing the job under the rules they work under, and persons want to criticize that persons behavior. No it is in the rules that the CIA and other intelligence persons work under that anything that they suspect is in violation of the law, should be reported to their supervisor, and that report if found out to be nothing is still supposed to be forwarded to Congress, which the DOJ refused to do by sitting on the report. Now the Whistle Blower law also says anyone filing those reports are suppose to be kept anonymous in every respect no matter who the Whistle Blower is reporting on.

    • Your last statement shoots down any credibility you had. Only the ICIG has to keep it secret under the law. No one else. Now as Trump isn’t under the IC, this leaker has no legal protections. Because a person in the IC can only blow the whistle on another member of it. Again, that is part of the law. So the leaker does fall under the 6th Amendment though. And that means Trump or his legal council have every right to know who it is and cross examine that person.

  6. I think it is about time someone told this idiot that this is America,, we have rights.. we are not communist China or Nazi Germany.. he is an elected official.. he cannot withhold things from the public. If he keeps doing it.. he should be charged with treason. I am sick of this weasel holding the whole country captive just so he can work out his hatred of Trump on the world stage. What a weeny!

  7. What Adam Schitt hiding?? This Dem worm is thoroughly unethical. He spouts off like he really knows something-all bullshit. There must be something in the Atkinson testimony that Schitt wants “not to see the light of day.”

  8. These are the types of actions that the legal American Citizens should know about and that President Donald Trump has alluded and tweeted about when he mentions the “Deep State” and “Draining the Swamp!”

    When the founding fathers argued heatedly about the “enemy within” there was a obvious reason in mind and it reared it’s ugly head in every generation, but has gotten to such an evil and rotten stage that demands it must be eradicated.


  9. Interesting that Pelosi and the democrats to allow and tolerate a false information and liar to continue as chairman of the Intel committee? Schiff REALLY reveals their evil character out so all can see their deviousness. Not a good group for America. They are working as America’s worst enemy!
