Trump Jr. And Rudy Giuliani Accused Of “Witness Tampering” In New Lawsuit

( The persecution of the Trump family and his associates continue, with a fresh lawsuit from retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman claiming that the former president’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr., and his former lawyer Rudy Giuliani, conspired to “intimidate” him into not testifying in the first ultra-partisan impeachment hearings.

Vindman, who did testify against the former president in the failed impeachment trials, claimed that the former president offered a quid pro quo deal to the Ukrainian president. He claimed that the former president offer American military aid if the country performed an investigation into Joe Biden’s business deals in the country, as well as other business deals involving his son, Hunter Biden.

However, the contents of the phone call were made publicly available and his claims didn’t hold water.

At the time of the call, Vindman was the director of European Affairs at the National Security Council. He was one of a handful of people who manufactured the scandal, claiming that the former president was “bribing” the president of Ukraine.

In his latest lawsuit, which was filed in a federal court in Washington, D.C., Vindman claims that after he was subpoenaed to testify, he became the target of a “dangerous campaign of witness intimidation” by the then-president, and a group of others.

Donald Trump Jr, Rudy Giuliani, and two advisors to the former president Julia Hahn and Dan Scavino are named in the suit.

He claims that President Trump temporarily blocked his promotion in the Armed Forces and removed him from his White House post – suggesting that these decisions by the president constituted “intimidation.”

The lawsuit is seeking damages but in an unspecified amount. It also claims that those named in the suit violated federal laws that ban conspiracy to intimidate witnesses.

We’ll report back on the progress of the suit.
