The media has gone into a frenzy with the news that the Trump administration fired Alexander and Yevgeny Vindman, the twin brothers who starred as the “anti-Trump heroes” in the impeachment saga.
But like almost all of their reporting in the last four years, the media is getting it wrong – and they’re hurting themselves in the process.
Tweedledee and Tweedledum
“You’ve begun wrong!” That’s how the self-assured Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum responded to Alice in Wonderland when she tried to introduce herself.
The supercilious Vindman twins are very much like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, deeming themselves the arbiters of “appropriate” behavior on the part of the President.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman listened in on President Trump’s July 25, 2019, phone call and determined that the President had done something wrong.
He then did something wrong himself. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was willing to subvert the chain of command because he thought that President Trump had “inappropriately” requested the aid of the Ukrainian president to investigate corruption that involved Hunter Biden.
He did not report the inappropriate conversation to his immediate superior Tim Morrison.
Instead, he contacted his brother, an NSC attorney, Deputy Secretary of State George Kent, and an unknown person (probably the whistleblower) according to his own testimony during the House impeachment inquiry.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman
In the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment hearings Vindman revealed his inflated opinion of himself as he corrected House Judiciary Committee Ranking member Devin Nunes for calling him “Mr. Vindman” instead of Lt. Col. Vindman.
In his testimony, Vindman came across as a tattletale, but his tales were not told to the person in authority, but about the person in authority; as if he said, “Teacher, teacher, the president broke the rules!” forgetting that the president makes the rules when it comes to foreign policy.
Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman
It has been reported that Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, an NSC ethics lawyer, may have reviewed former ambassador John Bolton’s manuscript “The Room Where it Happened.”
Parts of this manuscript were leaked to the media, triggering the Democrat House managers to demand that John Bolton testify at the Senate impeachment trial. They claimed that Bolton’s testimony would show that the president was holding up military aid to Ukraine to get Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.
Who leaked it?
Vindictive, retaliation, retribution
Of course, the mainstream media is already decrying the removal of Vindman Dee and Vindman Dum running headlines like these:
- Washington Post: “Trump ousts Vindman and Sondland, punishing key impeachment witnesses in post-acquittal campaign of retribution”
- Washington Post: “With Vindman’s dismissal, Trump gets especially vindictive”
- Business Insider: “Trump also fired the twin of impeachment witness Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman in apparent retaliation for his brother’s testimony”
- ABC News: “Emboldened Trump fires 2 officials who testified in impeachment inquiry”
The mainstream media wants to spin the removal of the Vindman twins as vindictive retribution and retaliation. They continue to argue that Trump does not have the right to appoint and fire whom he will in his own administration.
But they are misleading their readers.
President Trump needs support, not spies
The president has the right to hire and fire whom he will to staff his administration. He needs to purge the White House of overweening bureaucrats who are spying on him and leaking to the media.
These spies and leakers have been obstructing him for 3 years now. It is high time that he surrounds himself with people that share his vision and support him, not career officials who obstruct him.
