Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, the national security aide who offered key testimony during the impeachment hearings of President Trump and later accused the president of running a "campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation," has a book deal.
Rachel Vindman said President Trump put her, her husband (Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in Trump's impeachment inquiry), and their young daughter in danger of physical harm. (This tweet replaces a previous tweet that contained a spelling error)
“I don't think we ever anticipated his patriotism would be questioned. … It was just a sucker punch to see someone accuse him of being a traitor,” Rachel Vindman tells @brikeilarcnn about her husband Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in Pres. Trump's impeachment inquiry.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman's wife Rachel Vindman: "The people around [President Trump] knew that he would never find it acceptable if Alex were permitted to…have a normal career ... which is something exactly that happens in authoritarian governments.”
WATCH: Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman addresses President Trump's suggestion that he is a "never Trumper." Vindman tells @LesterHoltNBC that he was nonpartisan, but says now he is "absolutely a 'never Trumper.'" More from the exclusive interview tonight on @NBCNightlyNews .
To those who ridiculed, falsely accused, attacked, and now helped to end Lt. Col. Vindman's military service today, shame on you. Reupping "Alexander Vindman should be celebrated, not smeared"
Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman reported serious allegations about Trump's National Security Advisor, and faced retaliation. His brother Alexander reported abuse of power, and was punished. The pattern is clear: Misconduct, cover up and retaliation. And from the enablers? Silence.
Some of the people I'm thankful for this year: Lt Col Alexander Vindman Marie Yovanovitch Fiona Hill George Kent Jennifer Williams Bill Taylor Nancy Pelosi Adam Schiff Their commitment to speaking truth and public service gives me hope for our future.
