The army is willing to move Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and his family to a military base if they receive threats after his controversial testimony before the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday.
The Wall Street Journal first reported that the army was willing to make the arrangements.
& # 39; The Army will ensure that it is safe and the Army actively supports all security needs that are deemed necessary & # 39 ;, an official told the Journal.
US Army officers told the Wall Street Journal that the army would relocate the officer and his family if he were given threats because of his testimony about deposition
Rep. Devin Nunes (left), the best Republican of the House Intelligence Committee, received pushback from Vindman during the hearing when he did not address the witness with his own military title
The White House brought up issues of discussion that questioned the credibility of witness Alexander Vindman, as he testified before the House Information Committee
& # 39; It is difficult that he has been catapulted in public interest. He served his country honorably for 20 years, and you can imagine that this is a difficult situation for him and his family, & the source continued.
Vindman spoke about the personal attacks during his testimony on Tuesday.
Earlier in the hearing, Vindman had the top Republican Republican, Rep. Devin Nunes, corrected for having him & # 39; Vindman & # 39; and not his correct military title.
& # 39; Ranking member, it's Lieutenant Colonel Vindman, please, & # 39; said the witness.
Later Rep. Chris Stewart, a Republican from Utah, Vindman whether he always insisted that citizens call him by rank.
& # 39; Stewart, representative Stewart, I am in uniform and carry my military rank, I thought it was appropriate to do that, & Vindman replied.
& # 39; But the attacks I have had in the press and on Twitter have more or less eliminated the fact that, as a soldier, I am marginalized, & # 39 ;, Vindman added.
Stewart explained that he was just trying to say that Nunes meant no lack of respect.
While President Trump Vindman did not attack in the same personal way as a former US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch – whom he blamed for & # 39; Somalia – the White House has sent a tweet during his testimony saying that Tim Morrison, the former boss of Vindman, & # 39; was worried about the judgment of Vindman & # 39 ;.
Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio republican, set a similar line of questions.
In response, Vindman read from an evaluation given to him by Dr. Fiona Hill – who also testifies as part of the investigation of allegations.
& # 39; He is brilliant, inexplicable and makes an excellent estimate, & # 39; Vindman found her assessment of his work in July 2019.
On Tuesday, the White House distributed discussion points that questioned Vindman's credibility, including whether he was a leaker.
Vindman is a Purple Heart awardee and was injured during his active service in Iraq.
