Did the Demo Deep State Just Get Deeper?
Have the Vindman twins colluded against Trump?
No fiction writer would plot this, because nobody would believe it, but…
As our editor Thomas Gallatin noted Monday, The New York Times published a leaked report about a soon-to-be-published book by former National Security Advisor John Bolton. The Times alleges that Bolton alleges that President Donald Trump mentioned to him that freezing aid to Ukraine was, in part, motivated by Trump’s interest in having Ukraine’s government investigate corruption suspicions regarding Joe and Hunter Biden.
The report about Bolton’s allegation re-warms the Demos’ “quid pro quo” claim that Trump used his office to threaten withholding aid in order to undermine his 2020 opponent, Joe Biden. That is the centerpiece of the Democrat impeachment case. However, there is nothing illegal or impeachable about a president using his office, and the promise of U.S. aid, to insist a third-world nation clear up longstanding questions of internal corruption — particularly if tied to the actions of a former vice president and Ukrainian grossly-excessive “compensation” for his son Hunter.
Recall that Joe Biden bragged on the record about how, in 2015 as VP, he coerced Ukraine to fire a prosecutor — which even The New York Times acknowledged benefited Hunter Biden, who was a target for investigation. As Biden recounted, if Ukrainian officials didn’t “take action against the state prosecutor” (fire him), “I said … ‘We’re not going to give you the billion dollars. … I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.’ … Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”
But there is somebody whose name did not appear in The New York Times revelation’s about Bolton’s book and the source of that information: Yevgeny “Eugene” Vindman.
For context, the Democrat Party would have no contrived case against Trump (nor its hoped-for benefit to Biden’s 2020 candidacy) if not for a Soviet Union-born immigrant, U.S. Army officer Alexander Semyonovich Vindman. In his House testimony about Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Vindman testified he told his twin brother Yevgeny about the call, and also told “someone” in the intelligence community.
We believe Vindman likely provided the transcript of the Trump-Zelensky call to impeachment manager Adam Schiff’s Demo deep-state CIA operative, Eric Ciaramella, the so-called “whistleblower.” Ciaramella’s collusion with Schiff is the basis for impeachment charges.
But what was Yevgeny’s roll?
A day after The Times’ deliberately-timed “blockbuster” revelation, The Washington Times reported that the twin brother of Alexander Vindman is U.S. Army officer Yevgeny S. Vindman. That is significant because Yevgeny Vindman is a JAG officer believed to have oversight responsibility for National Security Council reviews of publications by current and former NSC officials — including John Bolton’s book. Bolton submitted the transcript of his book for NSC review in December, and the NSC is now running silent on inquiries regarding Yevgeny Vindman’s access to that review copy, or the implication that he could be in the pipeline of leakers which provided The New York Times information about the Bolton allegations.
It is possible that Alexander’s brother Yevgeny did not even know about Bolton’s book. But is it likely he did not know? Have Schiff and his dullard Demos enlisted both Vindmans in their scheme?
