The twin brother of Lt. Col. Alex Vindman, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, a National Security Council attorney, was also fired and walked off the White House grounds alongside him. According to CNN, the NSC spokesman did not specifically comment on the firing, “National Security Council spokesman John Ullyot said: ‘We do not comment on personnel matters.’” 

PBS Newshour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor tweeted a statement from Alex’s attorney in regard to his brother’s firing. It states, “[He] was escorted off of the grounds of the White House, suddenly with no explanation, despite over two decades of loyal service to this country. He deeply regrets that he will not be able to continue his service at the White House.” Read the rest of the statement below: 

Vindman is reportedly involved in the review process for publications by NSC officials. Breitbart previously reported that Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman is in charge of reviewing all publications by current and former NSC officials, “A source close to the Trump administration informs Breitbart News that Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, a senior ethics lawyer for the National Security Council (NSC), is in charge of reviewing all publications by current and former NSC officials. The official added that Yevgeny Vindman could have seen former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s draft manuscript after it was submitted for prepublication review at the end of December.” 

Also according to Breitbart, “The review is a standard process that allows the NSC to review book manuscripts, op-eds, or any other material for any classified material to be eliminated before publication. The New York Times reported Sunday evening that Bolton’s draft book manuscript, which had been submitted to the NSC for prepublication review on Dec. 30, alleged that President Trump told Bolton in August 2019 that he wanted to withhold security assistance to Ukraine until it agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, among others.” 

Former Director of White House Message Strategy Cliff Sims supported the firing of the twins. He tweeted, “There are NSC aides who faithfully serve numerous presidents, working diligently to execute for their Commander in Chief. But there are also NatSec bureaucrats who view themselves as the REAL power, outlasting presidents, undermining & executing their own agenda.” View his tweet below:
