A transcript of Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee appears to show that Vindman was the person who leaked information about President Donald Trump’s July 25 Ukraine phone call to the whistleblower.
Vindman didn’t say that he leaked the information, but Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) revealed the information as they tried to shut down Republicans’ questions about who Vindman talked to about the phone call.
Schiff says in objection to the questioning, “Mr. Chairman, I want to object that the question calls to reveal the whistleblower, and if there’s no other — (interruption).”
He then follows up by saying, “Mr. Jordan, the minority may not care about protecting the whistleblower, but we in the majority do.”
Now, Jordan and the Republicans had not even mentioned or asked about the whistleblower, which means that Schiff and Swalwell both knew that Vindman had spoken to him about the call and admitted in their response that Vindman was the leaker.
