Why Putin would promote false theory of Ukrainian interference, according to Holmes:
- To deflect from allegations of Russian interference
- To drive wedge between US & Ukraine
- To besmirch Ukraine & its political leadership to degrade & erode support from other key partners
Replying to @vermontgmg: Let’s not forget how much the President continues to serve Vladimir Putin’s interests through his own disinformation and mi…
FIONA HILL:"The unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016. This is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies, confirmed in bipartisan Congressional reports. It is beyond dispute,..."
Wow from Fiona Hill: “Based on questions & statements I have heard, some of you on this cmte appear to believe that Russia & its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country & that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative.”
Sondland is destroying virtually every Trump defense: Trump didn’t care about Ukraine; there was a quid pro quo; Trump & Rudy demanded the announcement of investigations; everyone was in the loop; Ukraine knew about the linkage; all was directed by Trump
“The Army has placed Alexander #Vindman, an expert on Ukraine and a central figure in the impeachment inquiry, & his family under 24-hour security monitoring after Trump targeted Vindman in tweets accusing Vindman of being politically opposed to Trump.”

"Why do you have confidence that you can tell your dad not to worry?"
VINDMAN: Congressman, because this is America. This is the country I've served and defended, that all of my brothers have served. And here, RIGHT MATTERS.

Tim Morrison, Alexander Vindman's former boss, testified in his deposition that he had concerns about Vindman's judgment.

"We have never questioned the patriotism of Republicans, but today's vile attacks on Lt. Col. Vindman, for simply doing his duty as he saw fit, leaves us truly shaken." - @Will_P_Goodwin, Army veteran and Director of Government Relations for VoteVets #VindmanTestimony
The U.S. Army is monitoring Vindman’s security and is prepared to move him and his family to a local military base if necessary following his impeachment testimony.
Replying to @leahmcelrath: Wow: the U.S. military is taking protective measures for an officer and his family because of potential threats to his sa…
The last time a GOP president faced impeachment, some House Republicans stepped up to defend the Constitution and the rule of law. They followed their oath to protect the Constitution--not any political party or any one person. We remember them for their courage and integrity.
