    GOP Senator Gets Called Out for Baselessly Speculating About Lt. Col. Vindman: ‘Disgraceful Smear’

    Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn, a staunch President Donald Trump ally, got called out on Twitter for baselessly speculating about Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and the whistleblower.

    The Tennessee senator said that Vindman was the whistleblower’s “handler, without providing evidence for her assertion.
    Her tweet...

    Vindictive Vindman is the “whistleblower’s” handler.

    Well, in all fairness, Marsha Blackburn was never known for her classiness. Nastiness, yes...classiness, no.

    I wouldn't have used her word, "handler", but it is clear that Vindman is lying through his teeth when he says he doesn't know who the whistleblower is.

    During his testimony, he said that he talked to a "member of the intel community" about the phone call. When asked what agency that person was in, Schiffty stepped in and ended that line of questioning, citing his rules about not identifying the whistleblower. Vindman's lawyer then justified not answering the question by citing Schiffty's rules.

    It takes someone who is totally in the tank AGAINST Trump to not see that the person Vindman admitted talking to is, in fact, the whistleblower. If the person that Vindman talked to was not the whistleblower, he would have had to answer questions about them because he would not have been identifying the whistleblower.

    Even if he did know, he couldn't say who it was....so what is the point of smearing and harassing him? Oh that's right, he's a foreign born American citizen and you're jealous that he's more American and done more for America than you will ever do.

    Why is it a smear to point out his lie?

    Oh...do we let veterans off the hook now? Are veterans a protected class?

    Or does that only apply to veterans who are also Trump haters?

    The hypocrisy in the air has a rank smell.

    She's a Trump boot licking sycophant. I'm ashamed she represents my state. It's says a lot that we elected that fraud and hack, none of it good. Howard Baker, the once standard bearer for the GOP in TN, is rolling over in his grave that Blackburn represents TN as a member of his former party. I dealt with him directly and he was a man of integrity in public and in private.

    Sad to see Blackburn become a lying gossip mongering Trump Panty Sniffer. Once upon a time I respected her.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    Don't be obtuse, Mycroft. You're not smearing him because he won't say who the whistleblower is...you're smearing him because he's better than you.

    Agree about Baker. He was a good man, and a real Republican. Blackburn is like all the rest of the Trump fans - a fraud and a bad person.

    LOL. Oh Marsha, Marsha, Marsha. Next she'll Tweet that being in Beauty Pageants were her "own Vietnam".

    Just another example of a Republican Party that is anti-military so they don't embarrass the lying, draft-dodging coward in the WH. It's also another example of why we need election reform. Reps have to run every two years. I think four years is better with a 4 term limit. That way they don't have to suck up to the President for election support.
