America is in a very bad place. I say this because a decorated Lieutenant Colonel who served honorably in Iraq- and earned a various military commendations- was set up on by GOP senators in an effort to undermine his credibility.
Alexander Vindman gave damning testimony today when he declared what president trump did in his attempt to shake down the Ukrainian president.
It fits a pattern, as witness after an witness confirm what we already know: The American president committed impeachable offenses in his dealings with President Zelinski of Ukraine.
The trump cultist tried their best to gaslight and throw red herrings, but everyone outside of the cult of trump could see what was going on: The American president was trying to use a foreign power to investigate a domestic political rival.
I guess we can’t totally blame the trump cultist, though, I mean let’s face it. they take their cues from the president.
“Donald Trump has mocked witnesses at the impeachment hearings – while two of them were testifying – claiming he does not know them and making fun of their clothing.
The president, speaking to the media ahead of a cabinet meeting, was asked about Lt Col Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council expert who was testifying to the House impeachment hearings on the 25 July phone call between Mr Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart which sparked the probe.
Lt Col Vindman was listening to the call, in which Mr Trump appeared to pressure Volodymyr Zelenksy into starting investigations into his political opponents in return for releasing US military aid.
The Iraq War veteran was wearing his military uniform at the hearing and at one point insisted on being addressed as Lt Col Vindman after Republican congressman Devin Nunes called him Mr Vindman.
Mr Trump, appearing in public for the first time since an unscheduled medical visit at the weekend, mispronounced the Iraq War veteran’s name and mocked him for wearing his uniform.
He said: “I don’t know him. I don’t know, as he says, the ‘lieutenant colonel’. I understand that somebody had the misfortune of calling him ‘Mr’ and he corrected them.
“I never saw the man. I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don’t know Vind-e-man at all.”‘
Yes Cadet Bone-Spur, unlike you, he is proud of his uniform. Of course you would never understand that, because you were too much of a coward to put one on.
