breitbart ^ | 11/19/2019 | spiering

Posted on 11/19/2019 12:59:12 PM PST by RummyChick

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman admitted he made up elements of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky in an official summary. Prior to the call, Vindman included a discussion about corruption in the talking points provided to the president but Trump did not use them in the call.

The summary Vindman wrote after the call read:

President Trump underscored the unwavering support of the United States for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity – within its internationally recognized borders – and expressed his commitment to work together with President-elect Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people to implement reforms that strengthen democracy, increase prosperity, and root out corruption.

For all intents and purposes, Vindman is an enemy agent in US military uniform.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/vindman-downplays-missing-burisma-reference-in-trump-call-summary

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., asked both officials whether the name of the Ukrainian natural gas firm—Burisma Holdings—was mentioned on the call when Trump pressed Zelensky for an investigation into the Bidens and 2016 election meddling. Both confirmed that they heard the name Burisma on the call, but that it was missing from the transcript of the conversation that the White House released to the public in September.

I think his whole whistle blower stunt is to try and save his career. He a loose cannon that should be terminated for conduct unbecoming.

I know LTC Alex Vindman from a Combined US-Russian exercise called Atlas Vision 12 in Grafenwoher, GE.

He worked w/the Russian Embassy & I was assigned to the JMTC (Joint Multinational Training Command), w/in USAREUR (US Army Europe). He worked coordination w/the Russian 15th Peacekeeping Brigade, & I was in charge of all Simulations planning, as well as assisting the USAREUR Lead Planner as the Senior Military Planner.

The following account of LTC Vindman’s words & actions are completely accurate to the best of my recollection & have been corroborated by others.

We interacted on several different occasions throughout the planning cycle, but it was during the actual execution of the exercise, that we had an issue relevant to his recent testimony.

As stated earlier, Atlas Vision 12 was conducted at JMTC in the VBS2 (Virtual Battle Simulations 2) Classrooms for Simulation. Vindman, who was a Major at the time, was sitting in one of the classrooms talking to the US & Russian Soldiers, as well as the young Officers & GS Employees about America, Russia, & Obama.

He was apologetic of American culture, laughed about Americans not being educated or worldly, & really talked up Obama & globalism to the point of uncomfortable.

He would speak w/the Russian Soldiers & laugh as if at the expense of the US personnel. It was so uncomfortable & unprofessional, one of the GS employees came & told me everything above. I walked over & sat w/in earshot of Vindman, & sure enough, all was confirmed.

One comment truly struck me as odd, & it was w/respect to American’s falsely thinking they’re exceptional, when he said, “He [Obama] is working on that now.” And he said it w/a snide ‘I know a secret’ look on his face. I honestly don’t know what it meant, it just sounded like an odd thing to say.

Regardless, after hearing him bash America a few times in front of subordinates, Russians, & GS Employees, as well as, hearing an earful about globalization, Obama’s plan, etc…I’d had enough. I tapped him on the shoulder & asked him to step outside.

At that point I verbally reprimanded him for his actions, & I’ll leave it at that, so as not to be unprofessional myself. The bottom-line is LTC Vindman was a partisan Democrat at least as far back as 2012. So much so, junior officers & soldiers felt uncomfortable around him.

This is not your professional, field-grade officer, who has the character & integrity to do the right thing. Do not let the uniform fool you…he is a political activist in uniform. I pray our nation will drop this hate, vitriol & division, & unite as our founding fathers intended


I need to make a slight correction on my statement, it was actually Atlas Vision 13 when the incident occurred. I was thrown off, as the next year Russia invaded Crimea. Also, I was promoted to Chief, Regional, Joint & Combined Exercises Branch, USAREUR, over many exercises.

In his prepared statement provided to Congress, Vindman claimed to be the top adviser to the President of the United States on Ukraine policy. He was later forced to admit he’s never met Trump, never spoke to Trump, and has never advised him on anything.

Rep. Turner gets Vindman to admit that he exaggerated his CV in a statement that he provided to Congress. Super reliable guy. #ImpeachmentHoax #StopTheSchiffShow

Vindman admitted under oath that he made up elements of President Trump’s call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his official summary. Gee, sounds just like Adam Schiff, who also made up a call between the two leaders and then read it on national TV. Prior to the call, Vindman included a discussion about corruption in the talking points provided to the president but Trump did not use them in the call. The summary Vindman wrote after the call read included his corruption talking points that were never discussed. Adding those would certainly make the call seem more “ominous,” right? Especially because nobody thought President Trump would release the transcript.

The fact that this so-called Ukraine expert didn’t know that it was the Trump Administration who sent the anti-tank Javelin missiles to the Ukraine, and not the Obama Administration, tells me all I need to know about this guy. The only thing he is an expert on, is having been conceived, along with his twin brother, somewhere in the Ukraine.

Lee Zeldin @RepLeeZeldin · 5h If Adam Schiff & LTC Vindman don’t know who the “whistleblower” is, how would they know that naming the one person LTC Vindman spoke to in the intelligence community would out the “whistleblower”? 🤔

What ELSE did the UkraineLeadership have in common with Vindman that permitted them to so easily see past his “US Military Costume” and invite him to head-up THEIR national defense.

Cuz there WAS something.

They were SOOOOO AMAZINGLY chummy, Ukraine/Vindman were, that Vindman felt comfortable enough to tell frankly tell Ukraine what and what not to take seriously, as said by the PRESIDENT..!

I find that astounding.

That should realllllllly make you slam on the brakes, that.

There was some force that brought those two together, something that surpassed nationality.

This thing is reminiscent of the George Zimmerman trial

Every witness the “prosecution” puts on the stand only strengthens the defendants case

Rod Jones🎶🎸🏁 @RodJone62401427 · Kurt Volker- Good Friend of Vice President Biden says he can't believe Joe Biden would abuse his position letting his son Hunter get a sweetheart deal in Ukraine. Interesting since both Joe and Hunter have both conceded in hindsight this was not something they would do again...😆
