JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The Army is providing NSC official Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and his family security assistance to help with the “public attention” after his testimony in the impeachment inquiry Tuesday.

An Army spokeswoman told ABC News that the soldiers are working in conjunction with local law enforcement to ensure that he and his family are “properly protected.” Those measures involve surveillance of his home.

There is some speculation that the Vindman family could be moved to a nearby Army base if security concerns persist.

During his sometimes moving testimony Tuesday, Vindman assured his father that he would be “fine” after delivering testimony damaging to President Donald Trump.

“Dad, my sitting here today, in the U.S. Capitol talking to our elected officials is proof that you made the right decision forty years ago to leave the Soviet Union and
come here to the United States of America in search of a better life for our
family,” he said at the end of his opening statement. “Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth.”

Later in his testimony, he asserted that he had such confidence in his safety because in America, “right matters.”
