National Security Council (NSC) official Alexander Vindman showed up to testify Tuesday as part of the Democrats closed-door impeachment inquiry into President Trump in full military uniform.
This is despite not wearing one to work every day at the NSC, according to several sources.
Although Vindman is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, he is serving an assignment at the NSC as the director for European Affairs. According to sources at the NSC, Vindman does not wear his uniform to work at the NSC, where the standard dress is business wear.
One source said he donned the uniform for show. The source pointed out that Vindman was ironically wearing a presidential service badge on his uniform as he testifies on how he went with his twin brother, a lawyer at the NSC, with concerns about Trumps handling of Ukraine foreign policy and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, investigating Joe Biden and his son for corruption.
Vindmans opening statement leaked to the New York Times the night before his testimony showed he was concerned that Ukraine helping investigate Biden would jeopardize bipartisan support for Ukraine.
According to the Times, Vindman, who was born in Ukraine and is fluent in Ukrainian and Russia, may have served as an informal adviser to Ukrainian officials looking for advice on how to deal with Rudy Giulianis efforts to investigate corruption by Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

You know, some people might call that espionage, Yoo said.
What was he doing in Ukraine?
Who assigned him to work from there?
Who does he report to?
Looks like Schitts script wanted to include costumes to add “legitimacy”
Little man syndrome has to be in a uniform
>>> investigating Joe Biden and his son for corruption. <<<
Fake News. Trump asked Ukraine to cooperate with the AG to get to the bottom of the Russia witch hunt - an ongoing criminal investigation.
Vindman, who was born in Ukraine
My, my, my.
Am I the ONLY American that has NOT worked or visited Ukraine ??
Maybe I should go there to get some of those $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ that the DemoncRats have been stealing, eh.
So Vindman was working for a foreign country? Why is this OK?
We have a treaty. US and Ukraine have an obligation to do this stuff. The Fake News people refuse to recognize that.

Betting the guy is on Putin’s payroll. Putin would love to see our destruction.
This screams self inflated a-hole to me.
He’ll be wearing one during his court marital.
And violation his oath by perjuring himself
Here the transcript of the call. if he was sworn in to “testify” he lied under oath.
People should have their taxes audited for this stuff. If you are a US Government employee and also a Russian Government employee, or Ukrainian Government employee, or whatever, it should result in a serious investigation. I see this guy as a straight-up spy.
Time for a courtmarshall.
Sounds like a:
It's becoming clearer why Trump was compelled to take the steps he did. The Bidens could have been in on this, as well.
What we have here are some very serious claims against US government insiders that could involve elected officials, as well.
<><> Did Vindam withhold exculpatory evidence while testifying?
<><> did Vindam aid and abet the alteration of official government documents?
Keep in mind...falsifying official documents is the preferred criminal method to cover-up larger crimes.
Passing copies of false documents as authentic can also involve forgery and other instances of serious criminality.
Falsifying official documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as:
<><> government fraud,
<><> tax evasion,
<><> money laundering,
<><> financing terrorism.
Falsifying official documents is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to legal penalties:
Having to pay a monetary fine and,
incarceration in a federal prison facility for 5-10 years (no parole).
If government documents or govt authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. Legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.
More on falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.
The Democrats think they will get an Oliver North moment from this socialist supporter.
Democrats think wearing a military uniform makes you off-limits to criticism.
