Democrats Panic: Vindman Twin Allegedly Leaks Bolton Testimony & Gets Destroyed

The attorneys defending President Donald Trump took only two hours on Saturday to totally destroy the Democrats’ case. And just like clockwork, reports are saying Lt. Col Alexander Vindman’s twin brother allegedly leaked fired National Security Advisor John Bolton’s Ukraine testimony from his new book which is under review. The New York Times reports Bolton says that Trump wanted the Biden investigation for the security aid. Well, that’s when the leak and leakers all got destroyed.

The Democrats are desperate and know their impeachment case is based on lies and innuendos, and they now have pulled the plug on their latest scheme. It’s not by accident that only hours after the president’s attorneys cleaned Schiff and his cohorts’ clock on Saturday that, lo and behold, The New York Times was leaked John Bolton’s so-called testimony on Ukraine.

“A source close to the Trump administration informs Breitbart News that Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, a senior ethics lawyer for the National Security Council (NSC), is in charge of reviewing all publications by current and former NSC officials,” Breitbart reports.

The official added that Yevgeny Vindman most likely saw former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s draft manuscript after it was submitted for prepublication review at the end of December.

The review is a standard process that allows the NSC to review book manuscripts, op-eds, or any other material for any classified material to be eliminated before publication. National security items can’t be disclosed in a book, and the Democrats knew they had to do something to help their impeachment case which is being utterly destroyed by Trump’s attorneys.

Everyone in Washington D.C. believes this leak was from Alexander Vindman’s brother, especially after Saturday’s hearing where Trump’s attorneys annihilated the Democrats case.

Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk torched the Democrats & Vindman: 

“You can’t make this up: Who was in charge of reviewing all NSC publications—including John Bolton’s new ‘bombshell’ book that just leaked to the New York Times? Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s twin brother Why do either of the Vindman brothers still work at the White House?”

Rep. Andy Biggs also reminded Americans that the swamp is still kicking: 

As more leaks & hearsay are ushered into the #ImpeachmentTrial, remember Chuck Schumer’s warning about the revenge of the intel community: ‘Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,'” he tweeted. 

The New York Times reported Sunday evening that Bolton’s draft book manuscript, which had been submitted to the NSC for prepublication review on Dec. 30, alleged that President Trump told Bolton in August 2019 that he wanted to withhold security assistance to Ukraine until it agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, among others.

It was not clear if the Times had seen the Bolton manuscript; its sources were “multiple people” who “described Mr. Bolton’s account of the Ukraine affair.”

Bolton’s lawyer, Chuck Cooper, issued a statement in which he said: “It is clear, regrettably, from The New York Times article published today that the prepublication review process has been corrupted.” He did not confirm or deny the Times’ reporting on the content of the manuscript.

Yevgeny Vindman is the twin brother of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who is one of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the impeachment of President Donald Trump. The brothers have offices across from each other.

Alexander Vindman told the House Intelligence Committee in his closed-door deposition that he told his brother, Yevgeny, about President Trump’s July 25th call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The problem is the Democrats did not subpoena John Bolton when they had the chance. In fact, they did not subpoena anyone — they had no authority to do so. That was part of Trump’s attorney’s case on Saturday.

Nancy Pelosi failed to take a full House vote to begin the impeachment inquiry, and it takes a full House vote to have subpoena power. So, all of Adam Schiff’s secret bunker basement hearings were a sham process, and all so-called subpoenas he sent out were just “strongly worded letters.” The kicker is Schiff did not send even a “strongly worded letter” to Bolton.

President Trump also weighed in on this latest Democrat dirty play:

“I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens. In fact, he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination. If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book. With that being said, the transcripts of my calls with President Zelensky are all the proof that is needed, in addition to the fact that President Zelensky & the Foreign Minister of Ukraine said there was no pressure and no problems. Additionally, I met with President Zelensky at the United Nations…”

“(Democrats said I never met) and released the military aid to Ukraine without any conditions or investigations – and far ahead of schedule. I also allowed Ukraine to purchase Javelin anti-tank missiles. My Administration has done far more than the previous Administration,” Trump added.

Dan Bongino blasted Bolton and the Democrats: 

“Regarding Bolton: 1) Nobody cares 2) The aid was delivered 3) The Ukrainians aren’t victims (just ask them) 4) The Democrats’ corruption in Ukraine is real 5) Nobody cares,” he tweeted.

Senator Mark Meadows also gave the Democrats a reality check. 

Washington Democrats love to talk about firsthand witnesses… …unless it’s Tim Morrison, Kurt Volker, President Zelensky, or Andriy Yermak That’s because those witnesses say the Democrats political quid pro quo allegations are a fairy tale #GiveMeABreak,” he tweeted.

Trump supporter and journalist Tim Pool summed it up best: 

“Sondland: No Quid Pro Quo, Trump said it to me –Bolton: Trump told me he wanted a Quid Pro Quo but it never happened –Why should I care about this news cycle again?” he tweeted.

If this is the hill the Democrats want to die on, then bring it on.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) revealed Saturday he has drafted motions to subpoena former Vice President Joe Biden, his youngest son Hunter Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and the so-called “whistleblower.”

Hawley will attempt to force a vote on the subpoenas if the Senate approves additional witnesses and documents as part of the upper chamber’s trial.

So, call their bluff. John Bolton has nothing. And it would be a really bad idea for the Democrats to expose Joe Biden and Hunter Biden to cross-examination. Adam Schiff should be literally freaking out. He can’t afford to take the stand when we all know he is behind this Ukraine scandal in the first place. All Americans should see what this Bolton leak is — the Democrat case is sinking like the Titanic and no leaks or lies can stop the truth from shining through.
