Impeachment Witness Vindman Files Lawsuit Against Trump Allies

(Headline USA) Former Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified against former President Donald Trump during his first impeachment trial, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against a number of key Trump allies, including Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr., claiming they “conspired” against him.

Vindman revealed he was the whistleblower who leaked information about Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine, and then testified against Trump in 2019. He was serving as director for European affairs at the National Security Council at the time.

When he’s not staying busy these days filing lawsuits, Vindman shills for mainstream media in finding new and twisted ways to blame Trump for — everything. Like the current Ukraine crisis created by the Biden administration.

In his lawsuit, Vindman alleged he became the target of “a dangerous campaign of witness intimidation by President Trump and a group of conspirators” who tried to stop him from testifying before Congress during the impeachment trial. The alleged conspirators included Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani, and Trump advisers Dan Scavino and Julia Hahn.

Vindman argued specifically that Trump’s allies violated the 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act, which forbids conspiring to interfere with a federal officer’s ability to carry out the duties of office or ability to testify.

“The targeted campaign against Lt. Col. Vindman violated federal civil rights laws that have long protected federal officials from intimidation and retaliation,” the lawsuit reads. “President Trump and his aides and other close associates, including Defendants, waged a targeted campaign against Lt. Col. Vindman for upholding his oath of office and telling the truth.”

Before Vindman outed himself as the Ukraine phone call whistleblower, Trump threatened “big consequences” for the person who “spied” on him and defended the phone call as “perfect.” These were “direct and public threats,” Vindman claimed in the lawsuit.

“The offensive against Lt. Col. Vindman started with direct and public threats by President Trump followed by a campaign to smear and intimidate him, with the intended effect of ruining his career and subjecting him and his family to further threats and harassment,” the lawsuit said.
