The former Navy SEAL who sent Osama Bin Laden to the grave weighed in on a star witness in the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, and it wasn’t pretty.
Robert O’Neill slammed Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman Tuesday for his allegedly partisan motives in the Democrats’ attempt to oust the president.
The SEAL reacted to Donald Trump Jr. calling Vindman a “low level partisan bureaucrat and nothing more,” with a fiery tweet of his own.
“I agree,” O’Neill wrote. “I wish the left wouldn’t use his uniform to make him a saint. He’s an operative with an agenda.”

Although Vindman wore his uniform during his testimony, his actions are not exactly what you’d expect from a commissioned officer.
The lieutenant colonel even went outside his chain of command, a move that lends weight to the theory he is simply an anti-Trump operative taking the one chance he had to hurt the president.
The importance of a chain of command was even emphasized by Vindman in his own deposition, despite the officer’s apparent disregard for the crucial system.
This, along with Vindman’s other actions to undermine Trump, has not exactly made him a hero in the military community.
O’Neill wasn’t the only hero to chime in on Vindman’s role in the impeachment process.
Mark Geist, a Marine veteran who fought against militants attacking the United States consulate in Benghazi, also appears to have a low opinion of the Soviet Union-born officer.
“Vindman is a disgrace to all who have served. Transcript of his previous closed door testimony he clearly admits to undermining the @POTUS foreign policy and now he has chairman Schiff advising him on how to answer questions,” Geist wrote, ending his tweet with hashtags labeling Vindman a traitor and POS.

There’s not much room left for interpretation in these scorching posts.
This show of opposition against Vindman from two modern-day military legends proves that the cracks in the Democrats’ impeachment attempt are beginning to show.
Vindman and other less-than-stellar witnesses in the impeachment inquiry are only solidifying the case that the attempt to oust President Donald Trump is nothing but a partisan abuse of impeachment.
