Alexander Vindman has reached out to Army about
his family's safety amid attacks by Trump and GOP lawmakers

Washington (CNN)Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council official testifying publicly as part of the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, has reached out to the US Army about the security of his family as he comes under repeated attack by Trump and his allies.
The Army has had conversations with Vindman about the security of his family, a US defense official told CNN. These conversations were initiated at the request of the Vindmans, the source said.

Vindman testified before congressional lawmakers on Tuesday, telling them that Trump's push for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden on a July call was "inappropriate," and he knew "without hesitation" that he had to report it. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden in Ukraine. (my emphasis)
"It is improper for the President of the United States to demand a foreign government investigate a US citizen and political opponent," Vindman said in his opening remarks on the third day of public impeachment hearings.

'My family's safety'
In his opening remarks, the Iraq War veteran touched on the safety of his family as he expressed gratitude that his father had made the decision to emigrate to the US from Soviet Union.
"I'm grateful to my father's -- for my father's brave act of hope 40 years ago and for the privilege of being an American citizen and public servant, where I can live free and -- free of fear for mine and my family's safety," Vindman said.

Vindman had been on the July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, after which Vindman reported his concerns to an NSC lawyer. Vindman's closed-door testimony to the House committee about those events sparked a slew of attacks.

The President has taken to Twitter to denounce Vindman, who was awarded a Purple Heart for his service in Iraq, as a "Never Trumper." Vindman has also faced numerous attacks from Trump's allies, and had his judgment questioned by other White House officials.

The defense official said that because of the concerns Vindman and his family have expressed, the Army is taking steps it would normally pursue in these situations, coordinating with local law enforcement and checking the Vindmans' computers.

The defense official told CNN there has been no serious consideration of moving the family yet, but said that in theory the Army would take such a step if the security situation merited it.

I seriously doubt there is any real threat towards him.

Certainly not as much as is directed at Trump or his allies.

When this guy starts getting harassed while going out to dinner then let us know.

It's easy to be cavalier about such things when it's not your family being threatened by a crime boss. I doubt that they're particularly terrified of being blown raspberries in The Four Seasons dining room.

Oopsie.


Vindman is Ukrainian. His loyalty to his homeland is so well known he was offered the position of defense minister.
Was this in appreciation of everything the home boy did?

The trouble is, it wasn't court, so he had not obligation to attend. Also, did you notice how they wanted Trump to defend himself? They had no evidence and still don't. They have hearsay and third to fourth hand knowledge which was not even corroborated by their coworkers.

Now they want to stop the Senate from proceeding in the way they see fit with the impeachment process. That's illegal, but the House thinks they are the law, not just the law makers.

That is simply not true. None of it.

Adam Schiff is a Moron. Doesn't he know that he will be CALLED by the Senate?

Well, if you consider hearsay as evidence you might have a point. I don't. It's like the life sentence prisoner who rats out some short term prisoner because he hates him. It's not credible, but the courts believe them.
