Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Sunday that the whistleblower who prompted an impeachment inquiry against President Trump is probably from the “deep state” and is tied to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the Obama administration.

Background: The whistleblower is thought to be a CIA employee who worked at the National Security Council under the Obama administration and during the first several months of the Trump administration. Last month, Real Clear Investigations reported that his name is Eric Ciaramella. So far, Democrats have refused to disclose his identity, the mainstream media has avoided mentioning his name in reports covering the story, and recently, Facebook and YouTube banned his name from their platforms.

The story: Graham made the remarks during his appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” where he argued that the whistleblower is central to the impeachment proceedings and that House Democrats need to call him to testify in the open hearings if they want to present a strong case against the president. He also predicted that once the whistleblower’s identity is made public, his connections to Schiff and the Obama administration will be revealed as well.

Graham’s remarks: “It’s impossible to bring this case forward, in my view, fairly without us knowing who the whistle-blower is, and having a chance to cross-examine them about any biases that they may have. It is impossible to conduct an impeachment inquiry when the chief complaining witness is unknown to the president, not subject to cross-examination,” he said.
“Well, because what’s going to happen, when you find out who the whistleblower is, I’m confident you’re going to find out it’s somebody from the deep state. You’re going to find out that they had interactions with Schiff. And this thing’s going to stink to high heaven,” he added later.
Worth noting: Republicans sent a list of witnesses they want to see at public impeachment inquiry hearings, which includes Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and the whistleblower. Schiff said that neither Biden nor the whistleblower will be called to testify.
