I stand with Lt. Col. Vindman
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman -- who courageously testified in the House’s impeachment inquiry about President Trump and the Ukraine scandal -- has been pushed out of his role at the National Security Council and was escorted from the White House. The American people will not sit quietly by as President Trump fires a decorated military officer in childish retaliation.
Why is this important?
With a blank check from the Senate’s sham impeachment trial in hand, Donald Trump is out for revenge. He’s starting to lash out against anyone who put their loyalty to the country ahead of their loyalty to him.
His latest target? Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine expert who was on the fated July 25th phone call where Trump tried to extort an investigation into the Bidens from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Vindman later testified before the House about what he heard on the call.
Vindman did this country a great service. He felt, in his words, a "sense of duty" to tell Americans the truth -- and now, that honorable act has cost him his job, his career, and his privacy.
Vindman needs to know that Americans are thankful for his courage -- and that Trump's attacks can't change the important truth that he told.
And the White House must be met with a nationwide outcry -- thousands and thousands of us speaking out and condemning Trump's abhorrent decision to punish Vindman for his patriotism.
