Army promotes brother of impeachment witness who was fired by Trump White House

| March 17, 2021


Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, USA (Ret)

Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, who was fired last year from his job in the Trump White House, is set to be promoted to a full colonel, the Army said Tuesday.

He’s the twin brother of Alexander Vindman, who was a key witness in the Ukraine impeachment inquiry.

Both Army officers were serving on the National Security Council when they raised concerns about former President Donald Trump’s phone call to Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July 2019.

Politicize the military? In a New York second. Both Poetrooper and ninja send.

Brother of Impeachment Witness Alex Vindman Says He’s Been Promoted to Army Colonel

KRISTINA WONG

Yevgeny “Eugene” Vindman, the brother of impeachment witness Alex Vindman, announced Tuesday that he been promoted to colonel despite being fired from the White House by former President Donald Trump, and urged the Democrat-controlled Congress to allow his brother — who retired — to allow him to be promoted as well.

Yevegeny tweeted on Tuesday:

Grateful for the trust & confidence @USArmy & JAG Corps placed in me w/promotion to Colonel. I look forward to continuing my service to the @USArmy & the Nation. Thx to the many fellow Americans who supported me & @AVindman. Congrats to fellow selects for COL. #HereRightMatters

His promotion comes amid controversies of whether the military has become politicized under the Biden administration. Recently, a number of military leaders took to social media to slam conservative talk show host Tucker Carlson for criticizing Biden’s focus on inclusivity for women in the military. On Monday, a Democrat congressman from Guam marched members of the Guam National Guard to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) as part of a political stunt.

Vindman himself has been highly political — even if not in uniform. He tweeted on March 13 that Fox News should be banned from military bases:

Time to remove @FoxNews from military airwaves (AFN/ common areas/ cable). It’s opinion not news. Bad enough when they attacked @AVindman, now they attack all military women. This is bad for morale, good order and discipline. We need to support military women.#HereRightMatters

Ironically, Yevgeny Vindman is an Army JAG attorney who served as the ethics counsel on the National Security Council during the Trump administration. Read the entire article here: Breitbart

    POS Political Hack. His traitorous brother to be recalled to AD and promoted to 0-6 in 5.4.3.2..!

    Wonder what time in grade is these days to pin a Star on? Wanna bet that he is fast tracked for that?

    I want the Spec 6 offered to me upon DEROS.
    And back pay….

    • Claw says:

      Beans, I figured out the back pay for ya. During that time, the average difference a month between Spec 5 to Spec 6 was $55.00. So:

      $55.00 x 12 = $660.00 x 50 years = $ 33K

      Don’t spend it all on bowling gear./smile

    Don’t really know anything about the brother.

    • David says:

      The LTC who testified against Trump for the first impeachment. Retired when he realized he had self-scuttled his career.

      • rgr769 says:

        I think his comment refers to the rat-bro lawer, not the rat hisself, Alexi. The lawer bro was also part of the get Trump conspiracy in the NSC. He didn’t testify at the impeachment hearing because he didn’t listen in on the phone call, as Alexi did. Both are treasonous seditionists.

    Those two Vindman brothers are just another shining example of liberal turd sucking military officers.
    Think about it for a second, that disgusting fat body Lt Col Vindman who was on Trump’s national security council was lying and not supporting Trump’s agenda- he was openly opposed to it. Vindman had no fear of reprisals. In my day if anyone in the military did crap like that you were finished, either by UCMJ or out the front gate, or both.
    Nope not today.
    The Joint Chiefs did nothing to Vindman.
    They let him continue his lies and attacks on Trump. Vindman, a porky non PRT standard O-5 pulling that shit, unbelievable.
    This was under the Trump admin, now imagine what it’s like with dementia Joe.
    Scary.
