Jim Jordan has done some really disgusting things in his lifetime. He is accused of covering up a massive rape and molestation scandal in which hundreds of college athletes were assaulted at the hands of their team doctor, and he is one of the worst politicians in modern history. But what Jordan pulled today, blew up in his face faster than anything ever has.Jordan tired to smear decorated war veteran Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, but was brutally rebuffed instead.
This is how it all unfolded.
Jordan mentioned previous testimony in which a witness testified that he “had concerns about Lt. Col. Vindman’s judgment.” Vindman responded by quoting former National Security Council staffer Fiona Hill’s performance review on Vindman. Vindman said:
“‘Alex is a top one percent military officer and the best army officer I have worked with in my 15 years of government service. He is brilliant, unflappable, and exercises excellent judgment.’… I think you get the idea.”

As we reported earlier, Vindman testified that:
“I WAS CONCERNED BY THE CALL, WHAT I HEARD WAS IMPROPER, AND I REPORTED MY CONCERNS TO [WHITE HOUSE LAWYER] MR. EISENBERG,” VINDMAN SAID IN HIS OPENING STATEMENT. “IT IS IMPROPER FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO DEMAND A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATE A U.S. CITIZEN AND POLITICAL OPPONENT.”
“IT WAS ALSO CLEAR THAT IF UKRAINE PURSUED AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE 2016 ELECTION, THE BIDENS, AND BURISMA, IT WOULD BE INTERPRETED AS A PARTISAN PLAY,” HE ADDED. “THIS WOULD UNDOUBTEDLY RESULT IN UKRAINE LOSING BIPARTISAN SUPPORT, UNDERMINE U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY, AND ADVANCE RUSSIA’S STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES IN THE REGION.”
“I WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO RECOGNIZE THE COURAGE OF MY COLLEAGUES WHO HAVE APPEARED AND ARE SCHEDULED TO APPEAR BEFORE THIS COMMITTEE,” VINDMAN SAID. “I WANT TO STATE THAT THE VILE CHARACTER ATTACKS ON THESE DISTINGUISHED AND HONORABLE PUBLIC SERVANTS IS REPREHENSIBLE. IT IS NATURAL TO DISAGREE AND ENGAGE IN SPIRITED DEBATE, THIS HAS BEEN OUR CUSTOM SINCE THE TIME OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, BUT WE ARE BETTER THAN CALLOW AND COWARDLY ATTACKS.”
People on YouTube responded in force to the war hero’s response, and what they had to say is seriously ruining Jim Jordan’s day. Check out those comments below:
