Liz Cheney Rips Fellow Republicans For Attacking Impeachment Witness' Patriotism


Recommended Posts

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming has been an ardent defender of President Donald Trump during the impeachment inquiry, but she may have reached her breaking point on Tuesday.

Cheney said the attempts by members of her party to slur the patriotism of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman are “shameful” and that “we need to show that we are better than that as a nation.”

Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, is set to testify on Tuesday that he heard Trump pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into digging up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden.

At a press conference ahead of Vindman’s testimony, Cheney said, “I also want to address something that’s been going on for the last several hours, and last night, which I think is also shameful, and that is questioning the patriotism and questioning the dedication to country of people like Mr. Vindman, Lt. Col. Vindman, who will be coming today, and others who have testified.”

“I think that we need to show that we are better than that as a nation,” she added. “Their patriotism, their love of country, we’re talking about decorated veterans who have served this nation, who have put their lives on the line, and it is shameful to question their patriotism, their love of this nation, and we should not be involved in that process.”

On Monday, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham accused Vindman of being “apparently against the president’s interests” while inside the White House and tried to paint him as a double agent.

On Tuesday, former GOP Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisc.) told a CNN panel that Vindman’s loyalty might be suspect because he was born in Ukraine before his family moved to the United States. 

RawStory noted that Cheney’s father, former Vice President **** Cheney, trashed the military service of Democratic nominee and Purple Heart recipient John Kerry while campaigning for reelection in 2004.

I have never been a big fan of the Cheney clan, but I have to agree with her. It is pretty low to question this man's honor and patriotism. The republican party is showing a dark side for trying to shame a guy who has dedicated his life to defending America for a guy with bone spurs and refused to serve his country.

Vindman May Have Violated 18 U.S. Code 798 by Sharing Classified Information of President’s Ukraine Call

So now it is OK to lie and break the law, violate the oath he took as long as it is against THIS president. So much for honor or is it honor among thieves.

When questions are stopped in order to hide a crime all parties are now guilty.

Vindman has a right to his opinion.....as we all do...

We have all read the transcript/summary of the call......did Trump brake any laws?.....

 

If he had....they would be prosecuting him......not attempting impeachment.....impeachment is a political process......not judicial.......no crime was committed....despite what the MSM broadcasts...    CL

Can't prosecute a sitting u.s. president until he's impeached and no longer sitting.  His own attorneys have argued to the courts that Trump could indeed shoot somebody on 5th Ave and not be prosecuted as a sitting president.

Which courts did his Attorneys make that argument too?

And why weren't they then jailed for contempt?

Trump lawyer: Trump can’t be prosecuted for shooting someone

 

NEW YORK — Even if President Donald Trump shot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue, New York authorities could not punish him while he is in office, the president's lawyers argued Wednesday. 

Attorneys for Trump made the claim while arguing before a federal appeals court in their suit against Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who has subpoenaed Trump’s tax returns.
