Byron York, a Washington Examiner columnist spoke to Laura Ingraham on Wednesday about how the investigators came to realize that the person driving the events of ‘Ukraine Investigation’ wasn’t the so-called whistleblower, but none other than Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.
In his new book, “Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment’s Never-Ending War on Trump“, Byron York reveals the details behind the House and Senate hearings on the Ukraine investigation.
“If you remember early on in the Ukraine Investigation, the Democrats said they wanted the whistleblower to testify and then they changed their mind and they didn’t want the whistleblower to testify,” said Byron.
“And they [Democrats] began to shut off any Republican attempts to find out who the whistleblower was. So the question is, if the whistleblower wasn’t in the White House, how did he learn what was going on?” continued Byron York.
“And Lieutenant Colonel Vindman was one of several people who had listened to the Trump-Zelensky phone call. But he was the only one who was disturbed by what took place. He was the only one who thought there was a problem there. So when he was interviewed by the House, remember, in those secret sessions that the Intelligence Committee. They said, well, who outside the White House did you tell about this phone call? And he said, I told two people, said, well, who are they? One of them was George Kent, who was a State Department official and who was specialized in Ukraine. Who was the other one? Well, he was in the intelligence community. And at that point, Rep. Adam Schiff and other Democrats interrupted. You cannot say, you cannot ask the other person he spoke to. And Republicans said, well, why? Why can’t we ask about that? And they said because it would tend to identify the whistleblower. So it didn’t take a real rocket scientist to figure out that the source of this, the original source of this was Lieutenant Colonel Vindman.”

Darrell Brooks found guilty on 76 charges in Waukesha Christmas Parade murders
Six people died and at least another 61 people were injured when a red Ford Escape SUV driven by Darrell Brooks drove through a holiday parade on November 21, 2021. Almost a year later, after a long and intense dramatic legal battle, Brooks has been found guilty.
40 year old Brooks defended himself in court after killing his victims who ranged in age from 8 to 81. It took Waukesha County Circuit Judge Jennifer Dorow about 25 minutes to read the guilty verdicts on all 76 charges.
Brooks’ case garnered national media attention in part due to the liberal policies which allowed him to walk the streets and commit this crime. Brooks had been freed previously on a mere $1,000 bail from an earlier case in Milwaukee County. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analysis found that bail to be considerably lower than the average of similar open cases. He also had been assessed as a high risk for release. Nonetheless, he was released on the streets only to commit murder not long after.
City of Waukesha officials welcomed the trial’s end. “I am thankful that the jury found the defendant guilty on all counts,” said Mayor Shawn Reilly. “We can now re-focus on taking steps forward as a community and continue the healing process.”
“The victims’ families as well as our first responders continue to deal with the lasting effects of the horrors of that day,” said Police Chief Dan Thompson. ” We are grateful for the support that has come from all over the world, and we ask you to continue to keep all those involved in your prayers.”
A statement from the city read, in part, “As a community, we still have a long road ahead filled with difficult days. This will be especially true as we approach the one-year anniversary of the tragedy. However, as we have experienced the past year, we know that when we stand together, we remain Waukesha Strong.”
