Tucker Carlson and Devin Nunes: Vindman Should Just ‘Go Work in Ukraine'
Fox NewsHours after Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) questioned Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman's patriotism, Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) called on the National Security Council official and Purple Heart recipient to be booted from his position and "go work in Ukraine."

Why, Carlson asked, was Vindman still serving on the White House National Security Council as a Ukraine and Russia expert?

Before bringing Nunes on his primetime show Thursday night, the Fox News star complained that Vindman testified against his boss and acknowledged that "a foreign power keeps trying to recruit him," wondering "how could someone like that keep his job."

Taking full advantage of their video privileges, the impeachment managers had played dozens of such clips since opening their arguments in the trial on Wednesday. But when Schiff tried to show a segment of White House aide Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman's testimony, it didn't work. 

Sensing technical difficulties, Schiff offered a joke. "We've heard enough of Col. Vindman," he quipped, before pressing on. For some of the Republicans sitting in the chamber, however, the joke couldn't have been truer: Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa nodded at Schiff's crack, glancing conspiratorially at her neighbor, Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas.
