Official White House Twitter is used to question judgement of war hero Vindman

This morning saw a slew of impeachment hearing testimonies from multiple officials, the most prominent of whom was Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council.

In addition to some damning testimony about the President’s efforts to bully the Ukranian government, the appalling smear campaign orchestrated by Republicans and the president against the active-duty military officer was a major topic of discussion this morning. The news that the military was ready to evacuate Vindman and his family should they be in any danger from the president’s rabid fans.

Add your name to tell Congress to investigate Pence for his role in Trump’s Ukraine corruption. The VP is complicit!

When asked by interviewers about why he was testifying and whether or not he was scared of the president’s attacks, Vindman responded with a stirring statement that immediately went viral on social media.

“This is America. This is the country I served and defended, that all my brothers have served — and here — right matters” said Vindman to rousing applause. “Dad…do not worry. I will be fine for telling the truth.”

The president responded to this powerful display by using the White House official Twitter account to smear him some more, publishing out-of-context quotes questioning Vindman’s judgment and trying to argue that just because Vindman has never personally met the president, therefore he couldn’t possibly have been aware of shady business going on in behind the scenes between the White House and Ukraine.

It is truly appalling to see the president use the official mouthpiece of the White House of the United States to denigrate and insult a decorated veteran and active-duty military officer who just spend an hour professing how he felt it was his patriotic duty to come forward and testify about the president’s misdeeds.
