White House Officials Take Issue With Vindman Testimony In Impeachment Inquiry

Published

on

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 & 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.

If this report is definitively true, what is Gina Haspel thinking? Why block these documents from being made public? Who is she attempting to protect? Hmmm…so many questions. Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, reported on Wednesday night that CIA Director Gina Haspel is reportedly blocking the declassification and release of critical documents related to the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016. “I can report here tonight that these declassifications that have come out, those weren’t easy to get out and there’s in fact far more waiting to get out,” Davis told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “Unfortunately, those releases and declassifications, according to multiple sources I’ve talked to, are being blocked by CIA Director Gina Haspel, who herself was the main link between Washington and London as the London station chief for John Brennan’s CIA during the 2016 election.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1311469631551336449?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1311469631551336449%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fim-just-sad-debate-was-a-terrible-missed-opportunity-chris-wallace-tells-nyt Everybody knows that the Obama administration was beyond corrupt. The malfeasance was simply rampant; on an epic scale. Biden and Barack did everything in their power to crush candidate and president-elect Donald Trump. The problem is they did it so poorly that they couldn’t even succeed at that. As if dividing the nation for eight full years wasn’t enough, right?

Ya gotta love it when guys who are worth close to half a billion dollars spout off negatively about capitalism. People like Dick Costolo, the former CEO of Twitter, just don’t get how America works. And because they are ignorant, they demand that people who don’t agree with them be punished. And by punished, we’re talking murder.
