Original Article

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key impeachment witness against President Trump, retired from the Army Wednesday, with his lawyer citing "a campaign of bullying, intimidation and retaliation" for cutting short his military career. Vindman marked his retirement by tweeting a picture of himself in a rumpled plaid shirt working on a laptop -- a stark contrast to the many photos of him in uniform.

Comments:

Sayonara Lt. Col. Otto Pilot. Your work in Airplane! is the stuff of legend.

Good. Put him to pasture and do not give him a position. I'm sure he will run right to CNN.

I’d bet a month of my husbands full-bird retirement that the other light colonels call this guy The Pillsbury Doughboy behind his back. I think the greatest military on earth will be fine without this fat phone colonel.

now if Col fat face can go to the Ukraine and take that Defense Minister position. How did he earn that Combat Infrantryman's Badge, by the way? I have heard stories about officers lusting after that badge, and rigging the system to get it. Just because Lt Col fat face ate some shrapnel while riding in a vehicle in Iraq, by itself, does not qualify for the badge.

It’s one thing to have a healthy respect and “fear” for your CIC. But to feel bullied??? What would he do on a battlefield? Buh bye.

Let's face it....Lying and plotting the overthrow of your Commander-in-Chief is simply TREASON. I would say that, being permitted to retire on pension, and then get a job with a defense contractor or some other job for the Ukraine, is an awful lot nicer than being given a Luger with only one shell in the chamber and being told to "Retire with honor for the good of your family." Or a piano wire lynch party

Too bad this Traitorous CrapHead couldn't have ended his career standing up against a wall, like other Trators before him, but this time wearing a CCP-Virus Mask and Ear Plugs to Protect his Health for whatever his Future Might or Might Not-Entail. We are living in an UpSide Down World and this November's Election will either Seal Our Fate into Socialist Slavery or Set Us Free to Aspire in the Reagan/Trump mold of our World into the Future. Either way, it'll mean Civil War (Northern Ireland Anybody?) as in, 'Them Against Us' or 'Us Against Them'. When Mr Trump wins, the left will go Totally Berserk and try to destroy every fabric of America.........

Excellent. Any moron that challenges his Commander in Chief because he doesn't like the way the President pursues policy is a fool and does not deserve to be trusted in any important position. He admitted that Trump did nothing illegal, just things Vindman didn't like. Considering that Trump is his boss and the Constitution says what the President says is the way it is, save when laws are being broken. Vindman specifically said that was NOT the case. The man is an obnoxious, bureaucratic jerk.

Maybe he will return to his home country, Ukraine, that was part of the USSR when he lived there. Apparently they wanted to make him their defense secretary.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an important impeachment witness, is retiring from the military in response to a White House "campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation" led by the president, CNN reported Wednesday, citing Vindman's lawyer. Vindman confirmed his retirement on Twitter. (Tweet) His attorney, Amb. David Pressman, told CNN that Vindman is retiring after 21 years of service because his career "will forever be limited." Despite assurances from Pentagon leaders that Vindman would not face retaliation for his testimony, some senior Army officials reportedly told Vindman that he would no longer be able to serve in his area of expertise

If Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth eventually becomes Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, pundits and historians will look back to Independence Day weekend for the moment when her campaign jumped from insider gossip to mainstream appeal. Duckworth has long been considered an outside contender for the vice presidency. Her resumé is a Democratic dream: a combat veteran of the Iraq War, Duckworth sacrificed her legs in service to her country. After entering the House of Representatives in 2006 — flipping a Republican district long held by the abhorrent Henry Hyde, no less — Duckworth established herself as a progressive legislator and

As violent crime spikes in some U.S. cities, former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke claims a Republican Party “death cult mentality” is to blame. Speaking on MSNBC, O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat, was asked to comment on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott both recently calling for schools to reopen for the fall semester, despite the continuing coronavirus pandemic. The former lawmaker quickly pivoted from talking about the virus to talking about gun violence. “These are the same people who want us to accept that more people, including children, will die of gun violence this year in America than in any other developed country, bar none,” O’Rourke said,
