Congressman Jim Jordan caught Alexander Vindman lying under oath about leaking the Trump Ukraine call during his Monday Congressional hearing.
Jim Jordan asked Vindman, “You never leaked information?”
“I never did. I never would. That is preposterous that I would do that,” Vindman replied.
This, however, was completely contradicted by Vindman’s earlier testimony that he gave out copies of the transcript to individuals outside of the White House. One of those individuals was a member of the intelligence community who Schiff blocked Vindman from naming. Schiff even said the reason was to stop the outing of the whistleblower.
However, Jim Jordan was not done with Vindman yet. He tore into him for the new revelation that other NSC members were warned not to trust Vindman’s judgment when he was hired.
“Your boss had concerns about your judgment, your former boss, Dr. [Fiona] Hill, had concerns about your judgment, your colleagues had concerns about your judgment, and your colleagues felt there were times when you leaked information,” Jordan said. “Any idea why they have those impressions?”
It was reported by Tim Morrison, a senior NSC member, that he was warned by Fiona Hill not to trust Vindman when she left her NSC position.
Morrison also accused Alexander Vindman of lying to Congress during his first hearing as well when he claimed that President Trump mentioned Hunter Biden and Burisma during his phone call with Zelensky.
According to Morrison, those two names he didn’t remember the names ever being mentioned by the President. Lt. Col. Vindman had previously claimed that he tried to have the NSC add “Burisma” and “Hunter Biden” into the transcript but was turned down. To add insult to injury, Morrison also said that the NSC accepted ALL of Vindman’s edits to the transcript.
