A woman who was seated behind Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman during his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee became a viral sensation after she was seen chugging her coffee during the proceedings.
You can see the clip in the Twitter post below.
The New York Post declared her the “hero of the impeachment hearings.”
“The brunette woman in glasses, seated to the back left of Vindman, appeared to glance over at the camera before turning and continuing to chug,” The Post reports.
Patrick Ward, who posted video of the event on Twitter, wrote: “Watching this mysterious woman chug her coffee, notice she’s on camera, and then finish chugging it is a lot more interesting than the actual testimony.”
The Post adds: “Some folks identified the background coffee drinker as McClatchy Congress reporter Emma Dumain, and she told The Post that: ‘Yes, I can confirm.’”
