Mr. Alexander Vindman — sorry, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman — was pretty much free from criticism as he testified, with the exception of the White House, which sent out quite a few tweets about him and his record. The pro-impeachment crowd was appalled that anyone would question the integrity or patriotism of a decorated officer.
It turns out another officer has come forward to say his piece. Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, Vice President Mike Pence’s national security adviser, issued a statement Tuesday saying that he was on that call with the presidents of the United States and Ukraine and heard nothing wrong.

Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg:
"I was on the much-reported July 25 call between President Donald Trump and President Zelensky."
"I heard nothing wrong or improper on the call. I had and have no concerns" https://t.co/5Eoaoys8io

Now no one is allowed to criticize. Liberals made that rule.

Remember all the drivel we JUST heard about how a Lt Col is so honorable? How about another Zero, of Flag rank? How about his honor and duty to get the truth out?!? Somehow I don’t think we’ll hear as much gushing over this Zero’s need to get the facts out.

Well that's going to be a problem for his subordinate Vindman.

Kellogg notes that Jennifer Williams, who reported to him, was also on the call, “and as she testified, she never reported any personal or professional concerns to me, her direct supervisor, regarding the call.” And of course, we all know now that Vindman didn’t go to his direct supervisor, because it was a really busy week as he testified, so he went to George Kent and who we can only assume is the whistleblower — not even Rep. Adam Schiff knows who he is, though.
Trump's getting ready to burn @TheDemocrats isn't he?
I can just feel it.

Well you just eliminated your chance to testify

Kellogg notes his own 40-plus years in uniform and federal service, but watch the liberals tear him down if the media even picks up his statement.
THIS seems important: NSC officials attempted to remove Vindman due to security concerns but were blocked by Obama holdover https://t.co/vHs0Ou8OK5
