That is what you call a BOMBSHELL revelation.

Looks like Vindman should go to jail, for a very long time.

Partial transcript:

Reporter: We had comments from the Minority Whip and also Jim Jordan.

I want to decode that for folks at home. When we got the prepared remarks from Lieutenant Colonel Vindman this morning, there was a section that caught my attention because it seems carefully crafted.

Vindman confirms he did share readout or the content of the presidential phone call July 25th with others.

The reason that matters is that presidential phone calls are considered classified and if that information went to someone not authorized to receive it, that’s a potential violation of 18 USC 798.

And Vindman writes, quote, I provided readouts to a very small group.

This is important.

Of properly cleared national security counter parts with a relevant need to know.

What you heard Congressman Jordan say today is when he asked Vindman who he shared this information with, what he did after the July 26th phone call.

Congressman Jordan said the chairman of the intelligence committee Adam Schiff shut down that line of questioning.

So the Republicans are trying to find out who Vindman shared this information with, whether they were authorized to receive it and whether there’s a connection here with the original whistleblower complaint.
