WTH? Vindman Says Ukraine Asked Him to Be Their Defense Minister “Three Times” (VIDEO)
This was weird.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was born in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and moved to the US when he was a “toddler,” told the GOP counsel on Tuesday during the Schiff show trial that Ukraine asked him to be their Defense Minister “three times.”
Vindman, who traveled to Ukraine to attend President Volodymyr Zelensky’s inauguration, claimed he ‘immediately dismissed’ their offers and informed his chain of command.
To put this in perspective, Vindman told Ukraine to ignore President Trump because he “thought” Trump was wrong in his policy with Ukraine — then leaked contents of Trump’s phone call to the whistleblower in order to launch a coup to remove a duly elected president from office.
What the hell was Vindman doing that led Ukrainian officials to believe he would make a great Minister of Defense for another country??
“At any point, did Mr. [Oleksandr] Danylyuk offer you a position of Defense Minister with the Ukrainian government?” the GOP counsel asked Vindman.
“He did,” Vindman replied.
“And how many times did he do that?” the GOP lawyer asked.
Vindman replied, “I believe it was three times.”
“And do you have any reason why he asked you to do that?” the counsel asked.
Vindman said he ‘didn’t know” why they asked him to become Ukraine’s Minister of Defense but added it would have been a “great honor.”
