‘Was He Involved in Burisma?’ Trump Attorney Patrick Philbin Suggests Whistleblower Had PERSONAL Conflict of Interest Filing Complaint (VIDEO)
President Trump’s deputy counsel Patrick Philbin suggested Wednesday night the whistleblower, Eric Ciaramella, may have a PERSONAL conflict of interest in filing a complaint against President Trump.
“If the whistleblower, as is alleged in some public reports, actually did work for then-Vice President Biden on Ukraine issues, exactly what was his role? What was his involvement? Philbin said.
Philbin asked if the whistleblower was involved in any of Hunter and Joe Biden’s dealings with Burisma Holdings.
This is huge, because if Ciaramella did work with Biden on anything related to Burisma and the firing of Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor general investigating Burisma, then it would be a personal conflict of interest for him to stop the President from investigating Ukraine corruption related to Burisma.
“Did [the whistleblower] have any reason to want to put the deep six on any questions raising any issue of about what went on with the Bidens and Burisma and firing Shokin and withholding a billion dollars in loan guarantees and enforcing a very explicit quid pro quo,” he said.
There are many questions and concerns about the alleged whistleblower and potential conflicts of interest.

A 2015 photo of whistleblower Eric Ciaramella taking notes in a meeting with a Biden advisor and Ukrainian officials emerged Wednesday.

Investigative reporter Paul Sperry, who initially broke the story of the identity of the whistleblower tweeted out the photo on Wednesday.
“Eric Ciaramella,the CIA operative believed to be the “whistleblower,” is captured in this 2015 photo taking notes b/t Biden adviser Michael Carpenter & NSC’s Liz Zentos in WH meeting w Ukrainian officials.Carpenter later appeared w Biden in infamous “son of a bitch” vid” Sperry said in the caption.
Michael Carpenter, Biden’s advisor, is seen sitting next to Joe Biden in 2018 when the former VP bragged about shaking down the Ukrainian government.
Biden bragged in a 2018 speech to the Council on Foreign Relations that he threatened to withhold a billion in aid to Ukraine unless they fired Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general investigating Burisma Holdings.
On this day in 2018, Joe Biden bragged that he would withhold $1 billion in foreign aid to Ukraine if they didn't fire the prosecutor investigating his son and Burisma.
If this is true, under the House Democrats’ logic, wouldn’t it be impeachable conduct? pic.twitter.com/paLLtbQiCB

Eric Ciaramella was photographed sitting next to Biden’s advisor Michael Carpenter so what was Ciaramella’s involvement in Burisma and making sure all investigations into the corrupt Ukrainian natural gas company were thwarted?
This must be investigated because if Ciaramella was personally involved in Burisma, then he would want to stop Trump’s investigation into the gas company to save himself from potential prosecution, thus having a personal conflict of interest in filing a whistleblower complaint.
