The Script Hits the Fan

On Tuesday, Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman testified that “the White House transcript of a July call between President Trump and Ukraine’s president omitted crucial words and phrases, and that his attempts to include them failed.” (Editor’s note: Shocker.) NYT: White House Ukraine Expert Sought to Correct Transcript of Trump Call. More witnesses are testifying today. Here’s the latest from WaPo.

+ “No matter what you do for this country, even if you give it your life and limb, you will always be foreign, suspect. And if, like Alexander Vindman, you dare to flag the president’s deeply problematic behavior and talk about it to congressional Democrats trying to impeach him, none of your service to your country will matter. There will be an effort to discredit you—you won’t be suspected of being secretly loyal to Israel, as your parents once were in the Soviet Union, but to Ukraine—any country but the one you actually serve.” GQ’s Julia Ioffe: Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and the Questioning of an American Jew’s Patriotism.
