Alexander Vindman is a retired United States Army lieutenant colonel who was the Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council. Vindman came to national attention in October 2019 when he testified before Congress regarding the Trump–Ukraine scandal. At the time of his retirement, Vindman’s promotion to the rank of colonel had been abnormally stalled by the Trump administration. He is suing several Trump allies, alleging that they intimidated and retaliated against him while he testified in Congress.
Quote: “The privilege of serving my country is not only rooted in my military service, but also in my personal history. I sit here, as a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, an immigrant.” | “I made the difficult decision to retire because a campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation by President Trump and his allies forever limited the progression of my military career.”
