More Suspicious Events in Obama’s White House Connects Schiff’s Suspected Whistleblower Eric Ciaramella to Soros Operatives

What was going on in Obama’s White House? Eric Ciaramella was close to Barack Obama and many other individuals connected to George Soros. Suspected whistleblower Eric Ciaramella worked in Obama’s White House.

We reported a couple days ago that on September 7, 2016, Eric Ciaramella from the Obama Administration met with a group of individuals that included an Executive from a George Soros connected group. What did they discuss? The meeting included Donald M. Camp, Jessica M. Gray, Baily S. Holladay (Russian Linguist/Analyst, NSA), Michael D. Jarvis, Natalia O. Lassowsky (Ukrainian Linguist/Analyst, NSA), Thomas W. Pucci, Stefanie L. Stagg and Ciaramella.

It appears that the “Michael D. Jarvis” who attended the Eric Ciaramella meeting on September 7, 2016 was and still is the Executive Director of the Transparency and Accountability Initiative (TAI) which is funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

TAI has a long history with George Soros. According to a 2011 article, the Soros funded Open Society Foundation praised TAI for its work –

NEW YORK—The Open Society Foundations today welcome the launch of the Open Government Partnership. Endorsed by 43 countries, the initiative is an important means by which to encourage governments to uphold the principles of transparency and accountability. These principles are at the core of the work of the Open Society Foundations. We support the Transparency and Accountability Initiative, a donor collaborative dedicated to empowering citizens to hold their governments to account, and we support civil society groups in more than 60 countries to do the same.

One of the areas, on which TAI focuses is anti-corruption. When he worked at the World Bank, Jarvis focused on the oil, gas and mining sectors. It is no secret that Soros was interested in Ukraine’s oil and gas industry and that Obama’s Departments of Justice and State were doing all they could to help him take it over.

It is no secret that George Soros operates through Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) to influence national policies throughout the world.  It may be that Eric Ciaramella was acting as a coordinator of some Soros-linked efforts in the Ukraine in parallel with U.S. government activities, in particular through the State Department’s U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

Here are some more connections with Ciaramella in Obama’s White House –

It appears the Obama Administration and Ciaramella were involved in efforts to end potential indictments against Soros related entities in the Ukraine.  It’s likely the Obama White House did more than that for super-donor George Soros.
