VIDEO: Rep. Stefanik Reminds Vindman It’s the President That Sets Foreign Policy

Moments ago, Rep. Steve Scalise tweeted a video clip of rising Republican star Elise Stefanik questioning Lt. Col Vindman.

Rep. Stefanik:

I was struck when you testified in your deposition  “I would say first of all, I’m the director of Ukraine. I’m responsible for Ukraine. I’m the most knowledgable. I’m the authority for Ukraine for the National Security Council and the White House.”

I just want a clarification. You report to Tim Morrison, correct?

Lt. Colonel Vindman:

Just to clarify, only in my advisory capacity. I advise up through the chain of command. That’s what I do.

Rep. Stefanik:

And the chain of command is Tim Morrison, to Ambassador John Bolton, the National Security Advisor to the President of the United States.

Lt. Colonel Vindman:

Correct.

Rep. Stefanik:

And do you agree the President sets the policy as commander in chief as you testified previously.

Lt. Colonel Vindman:

Absolutely.
