Responding to Lt. Col. Vindman about my Ukraine columns with the facts
www.johnsolomonreports.com ^ | 11/22/19 | John Solomon

Posted on 11/23/2019 8:15:54 AM PST by spacejunkie2001

honor and applaud Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s service to his country. He’s a hero. I also respect his decision to testify at the impeachment proceedings. I suspect neither his service nor his testimony was easy.

But I also know the liberties that Lt. Col. Vindman fought on the battlefield to preserve permit for a free and honest debate in America, one that can’t be muted by the color of uniform or the crushing power of the state.

So I want to exercise my right to debate Lt. Col. Vindman about the testimony he gave about me. You see, under oath to Congress, he asserted all the factual elements in my columns at The Hill about Ukraine were false, except maybe my grammar

Here are his exact words:

“I think all the key elements were false,” Vindman testified.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y, pressed him about what he meant. “Just so I understand what you mean 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…. 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.”

I heard he got his purple heart as he was riding in a car close to where a bomb went off.

“I honor and applaud Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s service to his country. He’s a hero.”

I quit reading after seeing the above statement. Vindman should be court martialed or shot.

Looks like JS broke off Vindman’s sticky in Vindman’s own wicket.

You should not have stopped. That was a polite, pro-forma introduction, which was followed by detailed proof (with citations) that President Trump was right on Ukraine and that Vindman is a liar in this for his own interests and not for America's interests.

Precisely.

I can’t read Ukrainian or Russian, whatever this Cyrillic language is, but I think the English translation is, “Joe Biden ain’t gonna be the nominee.”

It appears Solomon's page is under a DDOS attack since last night:

They clearly don't want Solomon spreading truth.

I hesitate to say this, but back during the Vietnam era, there were countless Purple Hearts awarded for incidents where the recipients were merely bystanders.

I understand. I was around when Kerry was swift boated. There is a huge difference when one is wounded in battle. All military serve and if wounded in a war zone, then okay....I get it. What didn’t sit well with me was calling him a hero.
