Yevgeny “Eugene” Vindman, the Ukrainian-born former NSC advisor who, along with his brother Alex Vindman was at the center of the Trump phone call impeachment sham, has announced that he’ll run for Congress as a Democrat in Virginia’s 7th District, a seat currently held by ex-CIA agent Abigail Spanberger, who says she won’t seek re-election in 2024 as she plans to run for Governor.
Vindman, who was born to a Jewish family in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic before immigrating to the United States, released a campaign video to X announcing his run for Congress, giving a brief background on himself and his military career and going on to boast of his role in reporting “the infamous phone call” for which President Trump was impeached by Democrats before being completely vindicated by reality.
The ad then features Vindman’s brother and anti-Trump accomplice, Alex Vindman, in what appears to be a staged video call between the two with Yevgeny Vindman informing his brother that he’ll be running for Congress before he again sets his sights on President Trump.
“Trump and MAGA Republicans spread lies, bigotry, and violence,” Vindman claims, parroting run-of-the-mill, hysterical left-wing talking points in a monotoned voice before his wife asks viewers to “vote Vindman for Virginia” in 2024.

Yevgeny “Eugene” Vindman’s announcement of his Democrat campaign for Congress comes just days after incumbent VA-7 Rep. Abigail Spanberger announced that she would not seek re-election and instead plans to run for Governor of Virginia in 2025.
Like Vindman, a former NSC advisor and anti-Trump ringleader, Spanberger, who supported the Vindman-tied phone call impeachment of President Trump, has longstanding ties to the deep state, having previously worked in the CIA.
