This military officer told the Democrats something that left Donald Trump red with rage
Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are churning through Deep State agents to find witnesses willing to try and frame Donald Trump for engaging in a quid pro quo with Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for military aide.
They may have finally found their man.
And this military officer told the Democrats something that left Donald Trump red with rage.
National Security Council staffer Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman became the latest Deep State agent to try and provide Democrats the smoking gun that Donald trump improperly pressured the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden.
Vindman was on the infamous July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian President and outrageously planned to testify that he believed President Trump threatened national security with his foreign policy toward Ukraine.
The New York Times reports:
A White House national security official who is a decorated Iraq war veteran plans to tell House impeachment investigators on Tuesday that he heard President Trump appeal to Ukraine’s president to investigate one of his leading political rivals, a request the aide considered so damaging to American interests that he reported it to a superior.
Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman of the Army, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, twice registered internal objections about how Mr. Trump and his inner circle were treating Ukraine, out of what he called a “sense of duty,” he plans to tell the inquiry, according to a draft of his opening statement obtained by The New York Times.
He will be the first White House official to testify who listened in on the July 25 telephone call between Mr. Trump and President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine that is at the center of the impeachment inquiry, in which Mr. Trump asked Mr. Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.
“I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine,” Colonel Vindman said in his statement. “I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained.”
Lt. Colonel Vindman clearly needs a refresher on the Constitution.
Unelected bureaucrats on the National Security Council do not set foreign policy or determine what is in America’s national security interest.
That is why the people elect a President to make those decisions..
