In a new interview with Lester Holt impeachment witness Alexander Vindman says he now identifies as a “Never Trumper.”
Vindman told Holt “I joined the president’s team. I joined this administration, well into this administration, with the hopes of being able to do my job, with the hopes of being able to advance national security interests I could say I’m now a Never Trumper. I was not a Never Trumper before. I was non-partisan.”
He continues “Regardless of the administration, I would just do the best that I could to advance national security interests, but I think as the president attacked and politicized me directly, in taking a sober view of where this president is taking this country, the divisions, the catering to our adversaries, the undermining of our national security interests that I’m absolutely a Never Trumper.”
