Remember the guy who overheard Donald Trump on a phone call and ended up testifying at the ex-president’s impeachment trial? He has been hanging out on the HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Vindman had been a retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and the Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council at the time of the call. Then, he committed the grievous error of telling the truth about it while under oath.
Vindman testified during Trump’s impeachment trial, after he had done so in front of Congress, about Trump twisting the Ukrainian president’s arm. Our ex-president wanted to trade promised military weaponry for use against Russia’s invasion for an investigation into President Joe Biden’s family before the 2020 election. The ex-president fired him in retaliation. And demoted his twin brother.
Vindman just made a guest appearance on the award-winning quirky HBO comedy show, which has running for 11 seasons. In his episode, the finale, Vindman “walked away with the episode,” according to Showbiz 411.
In the show, Vindman “call me colonel” held a book party at the LA Holocaust Museum and asked Larry to host a reception at his home. The colonel overheard Larry on a questionable phone call. The entire show was “typical Larry David genius.”
Vindman used his greatest weapon against the far right-wingers who apparently did not like his television appearance. His humor killed:
‘I would like to give the far right-wingers, commenting on my appearance on “Curb Your Enthusiam (sic),” a warm hug. I hope you are able to work past your grievances in 2022.’
On NPR’s Fresh Air, he talked about courage:
‘[I] recognize that my simple act of appearing here today, just like the courage of my colleagues who have also truthfully testified before this committee, would not be tolerated in many places around the world.’
His father came to American 40 years ago to give his sons freedom. And they returned the favor by serving in the military.

In addition to acting, Vindman has written a memoir Here, Right Matters: An American Story.
