Powerful & Inspiring Alexander Vindman Quotes

“Congressman [I am not worried], because this is America… this is the country I have served and defended, that all of my brothers have served. And here, right matters.1

Partisanship

A democracy divided against itself is destined to die. If we can’t put duty above division, how will America survive?”2

“I am a patriot, and it is my sacred duty and honor to advance and defend OUR country, irrespective of party or politics.”3

“It is natural to disagree and engage in spirited debate, and this has been the custom of our country since the time of our Founding Fathers, but we are better than personal attacks.4

“The uniform I wear… is that of a United States Army… The members of our all-volunteer force are made up of… people from all ethnicities, regions, socioeconomic backgrounds, who come together under a common oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. We do not serve any political party; we serve the Nation.5

Duty

“…my only thought was to act properly and to carry out my duty.”6

Truth

“Dad, I am sitting here today in the U.S. Capitol talking to our elected professionals. Talking to our elected professionals is proof that you made the right decision 40 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. Do not worry. I will be fine for telling the truth.7

Impeachment

“If not now, when? If not for inciting insurrection, then what? Our Founding Fathers conceived of impeachment and removal exactly for this moment.8

Trump

“A year ago today I testified in a public hearing about
@realDonaldTrump’s attempted corruption & efforts to extort a foreign leader’s help to steal the 2020 election. During the past year—emboldened by a complicit @GOP— he has continued his corruption efforts. That is who he is.”9
