Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell said he would not talk about the alleged whistleblower’s name, which was mentioned by the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine in a private impeachment deposition.

The Republican counsel on the House Oversight Committee dropped CIA officer Eric Ciaramella’s name into the record during his questioning of William Taylor on Oct. 22. Ciaramella’s name was in the official transcript of Taylor’s testimony that was released by the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
