Serving army officer stabs Trump in the back

The deep state has many tentacles:

WASHINGTON – A White House national security official who is a decorated Iraq war veteran plans to tell House impeachment investigators on Tuesday that he heard President Trump appeal to Ukraine’s president to investigate one of his leading political rivals, a request the aide considered so damaging to American interests that he reported it to a superior.

Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman of the Army, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, twice registered internal objections about how Mr. Trump and his inner circle were treating Ukraine, out of what he called a “sense of duty,” he plans to tell the inquiry, according to a draft of his opening statement obtained by The New York Times.

He will be the first White House official to testify who listened in on the July 25 telephone call between Mr. Trump and President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine that is at the center of the impeachment inquiry, in which Mr. Trump asked Mr. Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

“I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine,” Colonel Vindman said in his statement. “I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained.”

“This would all undermine U.S. national security,” Colonel Vindman added, referring to Mr. Trump’s comments in the call.

I remember when Obama was purging a large percentage of military generals colonels and general brass, and replacing them with his hand-picked replacements. And every once in a while, like now, I see his piece of shit plan pay off.

For partisan hacks, yes 

We already know what was said on the call, so what does this testimony add?

More “feelings?”

I know, right?

This guy is born in the Ukraine and is now testifying that he's upset at the USA pressuring Ukraine to investigate corruption?

 

At least he's revealed where his loyalty lies.  This is treason.

Exactly but since he heard the call directly they’ll be able to use that in the media to push the agenda.

I don’t agree with the president trying to get another country to investigate a political opponent. But I do agree with him using every possible avenue to address corruption in a nation we are giving billions to in aide and weapons.

There's always a swist.

Was what Trump wrong yes or no?

If you're a Trump supporter then no.

If not yes.

I don't want to see Trump impeached, every retard needs a hero.

And I'm on record as hating both sides.

Trump is an idiot.

Have a nice day.

It's amazing they pretend like the plain text isn't available for everyone to see.

Its like having a book on your desk and instead of reading it you call a hearing to have other people discuss the narrative.

It's a shitshow and anyone who can't see what the left is doing is willfully blind or dumb as fuck.

That's because Trumpets will lie anything, plain text means nothing to them.

They make Republicans and Democrats seem sane and normal.

TDS. They want Trump gone no matter what. They dont really care how much they have to lie, create fake dossiers, illegally surveil, or foster fake outrage.

 

I've never seen anything like it in my entire adult life

Please point out exactly in the transcript where Trump ask for QPQ.

Not your opinion of it

Not your emotional conclusion

EXACTLY where the QPQ is.

Misinterpreting a call is not stabbing anyone in the back.
