Vindman, whose family emigrated to the U.S. from Soviet Ukraine in 1979, when he was 4, is a veteran of the Iraq War and a Purple Heart recipient. He testified before Congress Tuesday about a phone call in which Donald Trump attempted to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, calling the effort “inappropriate.”
Prior to his testimony, several conservative commentators appeared to insinuate that Vindman is disloyal and may be a traitor. Among them were former Bush administration official John Yoo, Fox News host Laura Ingraham, and CNN commentator Sean Duffy.
