President Donald Trump launched a sustained online offensive Tuesday morning after details emerged of damaging congressional testimony by a senior White House official — retweeting numerous messages by Republican lawmakers attacking the latest developments in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
The flurry of activity on the president’s social media feed came hours before Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council official overseeing Ukraine policy, is expected to tell investigators on Capitol Hill that Trump undermined U.S. national security when he pressured Ukraine’s president during a July phone call to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
“Supposedly, according to the Corrupt Media, the Ukraine call ‘concerned’ today’s Never Trumper witness,” Trump tweeted, without providing any evidence that Vindman has an anti-Trump bias. “Was he on the same call that I was? Can’t be possible! Please ask him to read the Transcript of the call. Witch Hunt!”

That “Never #Trump‘er witness” is a decorated WAR HERO. With a PURPLE HEART. Who SERVED his country HONORABLY for decades. Unlike you…a DRAFT-DODGING COWARD TRAITOR. How DARE you attack his character? #Vindman #WhistleblowerGate #Ukraine

The witness, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, was awarded a Purple Heart after sustaining injuries from an IED when he was deployed in Iraq. The closest thing Trump ever got to a Purple Heart was when he yanked one from Lieutenant Colonel Louis Dorfman at a Trump rally.

He is an active duty officer who has served this country under every president for 20 yrs. He shed blood for America earning the Purple Heart -as u were hosting beauty contests, assaulting women & building gambling casinos. We all owe him our deep respect.
