(Tea Party PAC) – On Tuesday evening, some of the finest war heroes of our day issued a scathing rebuke of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council official who was carted out before the House Intelligence Committee in Tuesday’s impeachment inquiry show trial.
Vindman served as the director of Eurasia at the NSC and is being used to bolster the Democrats’ claims of wrongdoing surrounding a phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Vindman listened in on this phone call and then went to an NSC lawyer to report “concerns” about the call.
He specifically testified that he thought it was wrong of Trump to bring up investigations into allegations that Ukraine had interfered in the 2016 elections as well as allegations surrounding Hunter Biden’s seat on the board of Burisma Holdings, the Ukranian oil and gas giant, that then-Vice President Joe Biden threw a rope to when being investigated for corruption.
Vindman testified that he was not concerned about its illegality or criminality, but that he found it morally wrong. He also testified that he had advised the Urkanians not to get involved in US domestic politics (I guess he wasn’t around in 2016, or they didn’t listen to him).
Some military veterans, however, including celebrated war heroes, were incensed at the way this obvious political operative hid behind his military uniform while disgracing it before the nation.
Mark Geist, a Marine who fought off terrorists during the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks on the US annex in Libya, declared on Twitter that:
Vindman is a disgrace to all who have served. Transcript of his previous closed door testimony he clearly admits to undermining the @POTUS foreign policy and now he has chairman Schiff advising him on how to answer questions.

Rob O’Neill (pictured at top), the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, also slammed Vindman, rightly so, as an “operative.”
“I agree. I wish the left wouldn’t use his uniform to make him a saint. He’s an operative with an agenda,” he wrote in response to a tweet from Dondald Trump Jr.
Trump Jr. had tweeted: “Anyone listening to Vindman stammer through this seemingly trying to remember the Catch Phrases he was well coached on should get that. He’s a low level partisan bureaucrat and nothing more.”

Another well-known Navy SEAL, Jonathan T. Gilliam, tweeted:
“This guy reeks of spy! #Vindman should be added to the list of deep staters that should be charged with conspiracy to overthrow”:

Mixed martial arts fighter and National Guardsman Tim Kennedy scathingly wrote: “Correcting a civilian about how to be a addressed is a for sure way to make everyone in the military think you are a douche bag.”
That’s the truth.
Check out this cringe-worthy moment when Vindman corrected Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) for calling him Mr. Vindman, as any civilian not only would do, but is still absolutely appropriate to do.
