Here’s more on Vindman, via a November 2019 report from Flag & Cross…

White House officials were not too happy with the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman in Tuesday’s impeachment inquiry, stating his complaints amounted to nothing more than policy agreements.

Col. Vindman, who is on the National Security Council, spoke with the impeachment panel, saying he was “alarmed” by the Trump administration pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

Here’s more from The Washington Times:

He also complained that President Trump, during an April phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, veered from the talking points approved by the NSC and did not talk about the broad issue of corruption.

“Those were the recommended talking points that were cleared through the NSC staff,” he said.

The White House pushed back, saying Col. Vindman’s talking points do not establish U.S. foreign policy.

“The President is in charge of setting the foreign policy of the United States, not unelected bureaucrats,” the White House said. “The president has every right to conduct American foreign policy in whatever way he sees fit and is not in any way obligated to follow bureaucratic talking points written by staff.”

President Trump’s presidential campaign, which is getting geared up for the 2020 election, also took a few shots at Vindman and his testimony.

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh posted on Twitter saying, “He disagreed with the president. Hate to break it to Adam Schiff and the Democrats but the President of the United States sets policy, not unelected bureaucrats. And policy disagreements are not impeachable offenses.”

Col. Vindman testified at the hearing alongside State Department aide Jennifer Williams, who is assigned to Vice President Mike Pence’s office.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
