    Exactly. It sure is. Biden very ell could have engaged in extortion and bribery that affected foreign policy and allowed the Russians to take over parts of Ukraine.

    IOW, Vindman has lied. Trump did not "demand" anything. Vindman just made that up.
    And Vindman is an officer in our military ...

    Vindman just told an outright lie and he knows it. His council just jumped in to try and save him.

    This guy could wind up in prison.

    lol

    Schiff is protecting the identity of the whistleblower by ruling that questions designed to identify those individuals with whom Vindman spoke about the contents of the phone call is an effort to oust the identity of the whistleblower. You are now being reported.

    No he wants his aid, so if that means partisan investigations, then that’s what he “wants”

    It is very relevant. The now near universally reviled Congress is the perfect foil for Trump.

    The DP should fire the strategists that advised them to hold these sham hearings.

    Nobody asked the name of the whistleblower, they asked if he talked to the whistleblower and Vindman lied about it. Vindman said he didn't know who the whistleblower is.....

    but he clearly does.

    That is a lie and Vindman just committed perjury.

    Schiff for brains interrupts saying Vindman cannot answer questions outing the whistleblower even though he testified he doesn’t know who the whistleblower is. Does Schiff for brains know something and not letting on?

    You need to open a duplicate thread, and title it "For Conspiracy Theorists Only".... Then they can hold their CJ together and we can watch the hearings...

    Just a thought...

    Vindman did not lie. He explained the rationale behind his characterization of a demand by noting the disparity in the power structure between the two countries and the sheer volume of reliance of Ukraine on the United States. As such, any "ask" is more accurately characterized - and more importantly is viewed by Ukraine - as a "demand."

    It is pretty basic that any person to whom Vindman spoke about the contents of the transcript could themselves be the whistleblower.

    LOL, sure. Since Vindman bypassed the chain of command the questions are relevant.

    Much better. You actually provided a justification for the assertion.

    You are still wrong.

    Vindman testified that he does not know the identity of the whistleblower and that the people to whom he spoke about the phone call were authorized to learn about that information. He refused, as per the ruling by the chair, to state the names of any of the individuals to whom he spoke. The fact that he spoke to several people does not mean that Vindman knows that one of those people became the whistleblower.

    How did he bypass the chain of command?

    You've been saying that for three years now. What crime or act of bribery do they have firsthand knowledge?

    Adam Schiff keeps saying the whistleblower has a “statutory right to anonymity.” He said it again this morning. It is nonsense. Only the IC official who receives a whistleblower complaint is required to withhold the name, and not in all circumstances. It is only Schiff for brains rule.

    Yes. There is a load of evidence and testimony to support your claim.

    Go read the transcript from his manager. This will clear up things you don't know and understand. It also makes conversations with you easier because we don't have to keep getting you to speed on what is going on here.
