The oddest disinformation so far has been a series of Ron Johnson media appearances that attempt to discredit Alexander Vindman.
Johnson said Vindman might be among those bureaucrats who leak to the press "sabotage his policies and, if possible, remove him from office." pic.twitter.com/Mn5SHXUl06

Sen. Ron Johnson sought to undermine a key White House official who is set to testify Tuesday in the ongoing public impeachment hearings.
Johnson (R-Wis.), in a letter sent Monday to House Republicans, questioned the credibility of Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman, a Ukraine specialist with the National Security Council who listened in on President Donald Trump’s July 25 call with Ukraine’s president, in which Trump pressed his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate his political rivals.
“A significant number of bureaucrats and staff members within the executive branch have never accepted President Trump as legitimate and resent his unorthodox style and his intrusion onto their ‘turf’,” Johnson wrote. “They react by leaking to the press and participating in the ongoing effort to sabotage his policies and, if possible, remove him from office. It is entirely possible that Vindman fits this profile.”
