Impeachment Testimony Goes Viral After Lt. Col. Vindman Chastises Ranking Republican Nunes

The Democratic base lit up Twitter today after Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman corrected Ranking Republican Member of the House Intelligence Committee over how he would like to be referred to.

The moment was one of friction from a supposedly non-partisan witness.

The testimony of National Security Council official Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman grew tense Tuesday under questioning from Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. — as the impeachment hearing witness eventually scolded the top intelligence committee Republican for not addressing him by his military title.

The moment came amid a back-and-forth over the identity of the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint about President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky led to the impeachment proceedings.

“Mr. Vindman, you testified in your deposition that you did not know the whistleblower,” Nunes stated.

Then came the snarky response.

“Ranking member, it’s Lieutenant Colonel Vindman, please,” the witness responded.

This sent the social media wing of the “resistance” into a frenzy.

Public impeachment hearings will continue throughout the week, as Democrats work to defend their allegedly non-partisan agenda.
