Former White House lawyer under George W. Bush, John Yoo, was on the receiving end of widespread backlash after he appeared to question the patriotism of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a Purple Heart recipient and the White House's top Ukraine expert, for testifying in the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
Yoo seemed to accuse Vindman of "espionage" on Laura Ingraham's Fox News show, after noting that Vindman immigrated to the United States from Ukraine as a child.

The White House's top Ukraine expert, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, is the first witness who was on President Donald Trump's damning phone conversation with Ukrainian President Voldoymyr Zelensky to testify in the ongoing impeachment inquiry against the President.
Because Vindman is one of the few officials to go against the White House's pressure not to comply with subpoenas or even a modicum of oversight, bumbling Fox News personalities are implying that Vindman—a Purple Heart recipient—is a Ukrainian spy because he moved from Ukraine to the United States as a toddler.
