Impeachment witness Vindman: If Trump had been removed, 600,000 Americans wouldn’t have died of COVID

Retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who made waves as a witness during the Trump impeachment proceedings, claimed on MSNBC the former president is responsible for over 600,000 COVID deaths in America that would have been prevented if he was removed from office.

If they censured him, the president would have been on his heels, and he probably would have been more cautious going into COVID.

Vindman insisted there is a “direct logic link” to Trump being acquitted during impeachment and the coronavirus pandemic.- READ MORE
