I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

Alexander Vindman is suing Donald Trump and others alleging a civil claim under the KKK Act.

IANAL, but I believe I can see fairly obvious deficiencies in this complaint.

UPDATE—The first deficiency I’ve noticed is the apparently false characterization of the 25 July, 2019, between Presidents Trump and Zelensky as coercive. The transcript provided by the White House Situation Room notetakers (which included Vindman) seem to reflect a cordial conversation. Indeed, when Trump asks about investigations into Ukrainian involvement in US affairs, the transcript shows Zelensky’s reply as, “Yes it is very important for me and everything that you just mentioned earlier.” When the Biden’s are brought up, Zelensky relies, “The issue of the investigation of the case is actually the issue of making sure to restore the honesty of the case.” Zelensky seems to be ahead of Trump on the matter.

  1. It would strike me that the plaintiff has disregarded where discovery may take this case. Whoever is urging and footing the bills Vindman to sue may not be aware of the risks such a case pose to the official narrative.


  2. “Thus, the statute makes it unlawful to conspire to interfere with a federal official’s ability to hold office or to carry out the duties of office, or to interfere with any witness’s ability to testify.”

    This is precisely what Vindman did to Trump. That’s another problem.

    Then there’s Brandenberg.

    That might should be Brandonberg. #LGB

    The reply briefs are going to be a hoot.
