Jay Sekulow Explains the Real Reason Why Lt. Col. Vindman Spoke Out Against Trump

Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump's defense team, explained why Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman chose to testify against President Trump during the House's impeachment hearings last year.

Vindman said he was concerned over the phone call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where they discussed an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over allegations of corruption in the country.

Addressing the Senate on Monday, Sekulow said Vindman simply had a policy disagreement with the commander in chief and basing an impeachment of a such a reason sets a dangerous precedent.

"Asking a foreign leader to get to the bottom of issues of corruption is not a violation of an oath. It was interesting because there was a lot of discussion the other day about Lieutenant Colonel Vindman, and one of the things that we reiterate is that he himself said he did not know if there’s anything of crime or anything of that nature," he said. 

"He had deep policy concerns. I think that is what this is really about. Deep policy concerns. Deep policy differences. We live in a constitutional republic where you have deep policy concerns and deep differences. That should not be the basis of an impeachment. If the bar of impeachment has now reached that level, then for the sake of the republic, the danger that puts not just this body but our entire constitutional framework in is unimaginable," Sekulow explained.

Sekulow then asked if "every time there’s a policy difference of significance, or an approach difference of significance about a policy, we are going to start an impeachment proceeding?"

Trump was impeached by House Democrats on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
