As Twitchy reported earlier, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman wasn’t having it when Rep. Jim Jordan brought up the notion that Vindman’s superiors had had concerns about him; Vindman was prepared, reading Fiona Hill’s glowing performance evaluation calling him a “top 1 percent military officer” into the record.
However, the issue came up again Tuesday evening when National Security Council aide Tim Morrison testified.
Top official Tim Morrison said Alexander Vindman's bosses had a lot of concerns about him:
-Did not keep his bosses in the loop on what he was doing
-Went around his bosses' backs
-Was mad he was cut out of working on Ukraine pic.twitter.com/Z9qgSVs9dt

Regarding the last bullet. Go back to Vindman's testimony when, I believe Jordan, asked him about the trip (that he wasn't a part of). Look at Vindman's face. You can tell he was pissed he was not included.

This all started because he was mad they called him in from PTO to Prep for Ukraine trip that he was cut out of….that's it…guy obviously thinks he is way more important than he really is..

Vindman was pissed because he was cut out of a trip abroad.

But I thought he was THE Ukraine guy!!??

It seems to me Vindman is over exaggerating his responsibilities. How much responsibility does a Lt. Col. really have?

Disgruntled employee. Wears his uniform to get credibility that he otherwise lacks.

Seems like a great guy to be listening in on presidential phonecalls. Amazing.

A rogue is the proper term.

It looks like Vindman was on their radar for misconduct and leaking even before the Ukraine call and therefore there may even be an ongoing investigation into Vindman we don't know about and that is why Morrison cannot comment on it more specifically. ?

So Vindman felt betrayed and now is trying to take down our president. This shit is hilarious.

He read his latest report out loud in the hearing. His boss said he was top 1% soldier, best she ever worked with, etc.

Looks like she was a terrible judge of his real character.

The US Army chain of command, and/or the FBI, and the DOJ, should be investigating any US Army officer who has been offered the job of Defense Secretary for a foreign government; in this case, Ukraine. What was Ukraine's leaders' motivation for the offer? Why Vindman?

Because he was a good employee for them. Gave them inside information from the White House, and insured the money flow continued

Nice to have the DNC lawyers advising on how to respond to questions
