Earlier today, when GOP Rep. Devin Nunes called Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman "Mr. Vindman" the military officer quickly corrected him.
Republican Rep. Chris Stewart just asked him about it.
"I'm in uniform, wearing my military rank. I just thought it was appropriate to stick with that," Vindman said.
He continued, "The attacks that I've had in the press and Twitter have kind of eliminated the fact — that either marginalizing me as a military officer — or," before Stewart cut him off.
"I'm just telling you that the ranking member meant no disrespect to you," Stewart said.
"I believe that," Vindman said.
Vindman served multiple overseas tours, including in South Korea and Germany. He was awarded a Purple Heart for his service in Iraq after being wounded in an IED attack and still carries shrapnel from the attack in his body, according to a source close to him.
