Now-retired Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified for the first impeachment of Donald Trump. And he paid dearly. He had to retire and even his twin brother was sent away from the White House. So the Lt. Col. knows a thing or two about intimidation tactics Cassidy Hutchinson, 25, likely is already facing for testifying before the January 6 Select Committee.

As Chief of Staff Mark Meadows’ top adviser Hutchison testified on Tuesday, Vindman sent out a running commentary with a series of tweets.

Trump wanted to go to the Capitol Building, but his Secret Service driver told him no, he said it was too dangerous. At one point Hutchinson told how Trump grabbed the steering wheel of his heavily armored car. When that failed, the ex-president tried to grab his Secret Service officer around the neck. Vindman made light of the incident:

‘Trump and his Secret Service detail fighting over going to the Capitol on 1/6.’

Then, Vindman tweeted that Trump was “often unhinged:”

‘Many people don’t understand how weak Trump was… is. He is feckless & often unhinged. Senior leadership would watch Trump & weather the storm, then come in & pickup the piece… cleanup after him. This is what the staff had to contend with, POTUS as the greatest threat to the US.’

The Lt. Col. praised Hutchinson as having “more guts than Mark Meadows:”

#CassidyHutchinson has more guts than @MarkMeadows and the rest Trump’s henchmen combined!’

He also complimented Hutchinson for being ‘laser-focused:”

#CassidyHutchinson has settled in to the testimony. I remember that sensation. It gets easier because you just need to remember the facts. She’s laser-focused and doing great.’

Bravery is not the absence of fear, it is acting in spite of fear. And Vindman pointed toward the poised young woman as she defended democracy in spite of being “frightened:”

#CassidyHutchinson is 25 years old and frightened, but she’s there at Congress’s request and there to defend democracy!!’

Finally, Vindman quoted Trump saying “Pence deserves to be hung:’

‘Trump…Pence deserves to be hung.’–

In fact, he has filed a civil lawsuit against two former White House staffers, Rudy Giuliani, and Donald Trump Jr., NPR tweeted for “intimidation and retaliation:”

‘[He accused them of] intentional, concerted campaign of unlawful intimidation and retaliation.’

There was no doubt that testifying in the face of Donald Trump’s intimidation has been far from easy, and yet patriots persist.
