Fox News Contributor Byron York Says Vindman Was Behind Impeachment Push

Fox News Contributor Byron York is claiming that it was Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman who was behind the impeachment push and not the alleged “whistleblower.”

York makes these revelations in his new book  “Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment’s Never-Ending War on Trump.”

York told Laura Ingraham, “It didn’t take a real rocket scientist that the source of this, the original source of this, was Lt. Col. Vindman.”

According to Fox News:

“If you remember early on in the Ukraine matter, the Democrats said they wanted the whistleblower to testify, and then they changed their mind and they didn’t want the whistleblower to testify and they began to shut off any Republican attempts to find out who the whistleblower was,” he said.

The Washington Examiner chief political correspondent asked, “So the question is if the whistleblower wasn’t in the White House, how did he learn what was going on?”

He points out Vindman was one of several people who listened to Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, “but [Vindman] was the only one who was disturbed by what took place. He was the only one who thought there was a problem there.”

York also claimed former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, formed in May of 2017, knew early on there wasn’t evidence for Trump-Russia collusion but continued to investigate.

York did state that Republicans had a hard time questioning Vindman because of his “decorated” military career, even though they knew he was the origin and Schiff’s source.

No matter what he saw or didn’t see, he is a guilty of sedition and ought to be tried by a court martial or in civilian court.

I was guessing I would see mitt romney’s name … fooled me ! … ha ha ha


In the military this was once called insubordination to the “Commander-in-Chief”
of the USA. 
Certainly grounds for court marshall and being drummed out of office in disgrace.  
If he squawks … execute the traitor.

So……….Vindeman is the only person on the call who was disturbed by it and the Dems launched an impeachment hearing? That proves the total desperation of Pelosi and company and they had nothing for “proof” except this jerk’s “feelings and what he thought” DJT meant! Does everyone remember this dude’s testimony? He was weak, gutless, unsure of what he heard, couldn’t remember and/or recall much of what was asked of him….Vindeman and his testimony were pathetic! His feelings and what he thought are just that but, certainly didn’t qualify as evidence or proof!
Pelosi turned that into impeachment……no dang wonder it went nowhere in the Senate! It is a travesty that Pelosi and the Dems are legally allowed to waste untold millions of dollars trying to destroy DJT with what they know to be lies and false allegations!
Vote all Democrats out in November or throw them all in a shark tank and let them feed on each other. When there is only one of them left, throw a hungry 20′ long Great White Shark in to feed on the last Dem! Good riddance to bad rubbish!

No, he was a the lead for the deep state who tried to take Trump down, a duly elected sitting president, with lies, inuendo, and obfuscating right alongside the dim wits in the house prominently including old Shifty, and old queenie Nanc not to mention his in-law Soros and his billions to bribe everyone involved.

When you attempt to kill the king you had better make sure you can get it done because if you fail he’ll hang you.

No Surprise. Military man or not, he came across as a weasel. Puffed up with his own importance and full of himself.

The definition of treason is aiding and abetting the enemies of the u.s.a. many politicians and Lt. Col did just that!

Yeah, I watched this weasel LCDR remind one of the GOP House questioners to address him as “Lt. Cdr. Vindman”. What a puffed up jerk…so full of himself; and foolish enough to think he could pull off this seditionist stunt and go undetected. He is so lucky to keep his pension and retire into oblivion. At least, the US military will no longer suffer from his dangerous, arrogant and disloyal service.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?’ Psalms 11:3 KJV I think, it’s just to late to save this nation, the foundations of The KJV Bible, and it’s STUDY (2 Tim 2:15 KJV (ONLY) and the 10 Commandments, and daily Prayer, and the inculcation of abortion (which GOD HATES, Pro 6:17KJV) is just to far to come back to a nation that has all but fallen from it’s former glory! The Light has gone out!!

Is it just a coincidence that fires are ravaging the LEFT COAST STATES? Too bad the real perps aren’t the victims. Climate Change isn’t the cause.

Traitors everywhere even in his own camp. The Scum-o-crat Party has a long reach.
