And CNN’s Jake Tapper is on it:

Does Wolking’s retweet constitute a “formal threat” or nah?

Honestly, it’s kind of strange for Tapper to be hyperventilating about this. For better or for worse, Eric Ciaramella’s name has been out there for a while now.
are we still pretending people don't all know?

Only Dem activists in the media think his name isn't everywhere.

This isn't some stunning new piece of information, Jake.
Once in a while, you're kind of a decent guy who doesn't seem as insane as the rest. Maybe seize that potential.

That’s good advice. Otherwise, Jake, you might just end up making things worse:
A CNN anchor just tweeted out a big advertisement asking everyone to go search for that tweet.

It’s the least Tapper could do.
