(Tea Party PAC) – Esteemed political reporter John Solomon has completely dismantled the testimony of Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council official who appeared before the House Intelligence Committee this week to present his incredibly weak case for the mythical “quid pro quo” the Democrats are making in an attempt to impeach Trump.
This was warranted, considering Vindman’s testimony referenced Solomon’s reporting.
Confronting Lt. Col Vindman's Ukraine testimony … with the factshttps://t.co/H65sv2PRn7

So Solomon hit back.
In a Friday post, Solomon noted that “under oath to Congress, [Vindman] asserted all the factual elements in my columns at The Hill about Ukraine were false, except maybe my grammar.”
Vindman was pressed on this point by Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who tried to clarify if “when you say key elements, are you referring to everything John Solomon stated or just some of it?”
“All the elements that I just laid out for you. The criticisms of corruption were false…,” Vindman had replied. “Were there more items in there, frankly, congressman? I don’t recall. I haven’t looked at the article in quite some time, but you know, his grammar might have been right.”
Solomon called Vindman’s testimony as “injurious to my reputation” and proceeded to lay out 28 “primary factual elements in my Ukraine column.”
With links to his sources and the origin of his information, Solomon provided details on his own reporting which have played a prominent role in the impeachment proceedings even as the Democrats try to discredit him.
Biz Pac review notes:
From the conflict of interest by former Vice President Joe Biden as his son Hunter was hired by the Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma, which was under investigation for corruption, to the subsequent firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin when he pushed to interview Hunter Biden as part of his investigation.
The senior Biden, serving as former President Obama’s vice president at the time, boasted in 2018 that he had gotten Shokin fired after threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid – and there is video to prove it.
Solomon finished off his post with a challenge to Vindman, declaring “if you have information that contradicts any of these 28 factual elements in my columns I ask that you make it publicly available. Your testimony did not.”
“If you don’t have evidence these 28 facts are wrong, I ask that you correct your testimony because any effort to call factually accurate reporting false only misleads America and chills the free debate our Constitutional framers so cherished to protect,” he wrote.
Solomon’s work is a must-read for anyone who wants to wrap their head around the extent of corruption and collusion between the Democrats and Ukraine.
Many Twitter users noted that his work is clearly posing a threat to the left.
I don’t think he’ll respond. I agree with some here that he was coached &discrediting your reports was part of the scheme/coaching. I think most were coached to move in a certain direction. I only have a handful of people I trust with the facts and you’re at the top of the list.

Fight back. Sue for defamation. Don't let it go, don't be silent.

Wow, this list of facts has really helped me to understand the whole mess a lot better. Thanks for citing the sources and thank you for your incredible work.

This is the most significant article I've read during Trump's time in Washington and probably long before that. John of course deserves the highest praise from both sides but sadly it'll be one sided.

Excellent work John!
They hate it when facts get in the way of their narrative.

Wow! Nicely done, Mr. Solomon! How embarrassing for the US Military to keep LtC Vindman in a position he knows nothing about. Hoping his supervisor relieves him of duty! Good grief…and it was a joke, no country would want this guy as a Defense Minister.
