Brother of Alex Vindman, of Trump Impeachment Fame, Announces U.S. House Run


Eugene Vindman — the twin brother of Alexander Vindman, who orchestrated an impeachment inquiry into former President Donald Trump — is running as a Democrat for a U.S. congressional seat in Virginia, according to a report.

Semafor reported Wednesday that Vindman, a retired U.S. Army colonel, is expected to announce a run for Congress in Virginia’s 7th congressional district to replace Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), who is running for Virginia governor.

There is a fundraising page for Vindman on the ActBlue website, as well as a social media account, according to the outlet. The social media account on X appears to be defunct as of Thursday evening.

VoteVets, a group supporting progressive veterans posted that they are endorsing him:

NEW: VoteVets endorses @YVindman for Congress! #VA07 🇺🇸

Vindman had previously told Axios in October that he was considering a bid and that he is “focused on Ukraine funding” and “war crimes.”

“That’s all I’m focused on,” he said.
