CNN’s Sean Duffy smears impeachment witness Vindman — and suggests he has dual loyalty to Ukraine

Published

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the director of European affairs at the National Security Council (NSC), is set to testify on Capitol Hill on Tuesday about his objections to President Donald Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

As such, the president’s defenders are rushing to launch a smear campaign against him by claiming without evidence that he has some kind of dual loyalty to the Ukrainian government.

Hours after Fox News host Laura Ingraham accused the Ukrainian-born Vindman of being a double agent, former GOP Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) went on CNN to question his loyalty to the United States.

During an interview with host John Berman, Duffy argued that Vindman might not be the most trustworthy witness because he was born in Ukraine before his family moved to the United States when he was three years old.

Duffy said this made him wonder if Vindman really had America’s best interests at heart.

“It seems very clear that he is incredibly concerned about Ukrainian defense,” Duffy said. “I don’t know that he’s concerned about American policy… we all have an affinity to our homeland where we came from… he has an affinity for the Ukraine.”

Berman at this point grew incredulous.

“I’m sorry, are you saying that you would put Irish defense over U.S. defense?” he asked. “Is that what you’re saying?”

‘I told you this would happen’: CNN’s Cuomo tears into Trump for trying to ruin Dr Fauci

Published

on

On Monday, CNN's Chris Cuomo slammed President Donald Trump for his latest attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci.

"Fauci is not to blame for any of this. Trump is, period," said Cuomo. "And now that the reality is sinking in to blue and red, to left, right, and reasonable, Trump is doing what he always does: trying to shift blame to someone else. And we must reject efforts to shift stink onto the one man we can trust."

"Now, in these White House attacks, we see their principles on display as well, don't we?" said Cuomo. "Eat your own, lie about Fauci, deny your role, and defy the mandate of leadership that we gave you. And how about using an unnamed official to smear the only credible voice they have on this voice. Where are the worries about anonymous sources now, Mr. President? This is making America great again? You pardon a convicted liar and lie about a man with a conviction to fight a pandemic, which you apparently lack."
