President Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s “useful idiot” who has weakened America and invites continued chaos, warned Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman in a blistering interview with The Atlantic. “I think the president has made this country weaker. We’re mocked by our adversaries and by our allies, and we’re heading for more disaster,” charged Vindman, a key witness in Trump’s impeachment. The decorated Iraq war vet accused Trump of bowing to the Russian president to the detriment of America because he wants to be just like him — an “authoritarian strongman.” Vindman said Trump should be “considered to be a useful idiot and a fellow traveler, which makes him an unwitting agent of Putin.”

“He likes authoritarian strongmen who act with impunity, without checks and balances,” Vindman said. “So he’ll try to please Putin.”

Trump’s benefit to the Kremlin is what’s called in the Army “free chicken — something you don’t have to work for; it just comes to you,” Vindman explained. “This is what the Russians have in Trump: free chicken.”

To no one’s surprise, Vindman said on NBC in an interview Monday that’s he’s become “absolutely a never-Trumper.” (Watch at the top.)
