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

Comments:

He will now be a ''military expert' on CNN

He will forever be limited because he isn't good enough for a full bird, THAT is why he needs to retire.

He only got t Lt.Col. because of the positions he filled that apparently required it. The rank went with the job. The same is true about his earlier promotions, as I recall. A form of affirmative action, I suspect.

He can return to his native country, then known as part of the USSR, and now known as Ukraine, where it is said that they would give him a job comparable to Secretary of Defense. That would probably be a good fit for him, as it appears that he was more interested in Ukrainian national interests, then USA national interests as formulated by the President of the USA

He shouldn't even have been on the list. A guy like that should have washed out years ago. But there is the whole Clintoon, Bushie and Obola cohort of perfumed anti-america princes that have been stuffed into the military ranks.

A quick note to Lt. Col. Vindman: You can be recalled to active duty at anytime and court-martialed, so remember that your future actions carry with them potentially harsh consequences. Enjoy your retirement!!!

But Vindman was unreliable and had questionable judgment, according to his own outgoing superior, Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s senior director for European affairs. In fact, Morrison viewed Vindman as so untrustworthy that he opted to exclude him from his conversations with William Taylor, the senior US diplomat in Ukraine. Vindman had an “unfortunate habit,” Morrison thought, of defying the sprawling executive branch’s carefully delineated chain of command. Vindman’s testimony vindicates Morrison’s dripping disdain for his former subordinate. https://nypost.com/2019/11/19/alexander-vindman-condemned-himself-in-his-impeachment-testimony/

Why, if it looks so convincing that Biden will win (only to be replaced within the first week by the 25th Amendment) would he think his career would be limited?

“a troubling phone call”! Vindman was a tool for Schiff and the coup, but they failed to kill the emperor. In old Rome, Vindman would have been summarily executed, but here, we don’t do that. Instead, the traitor is reassigned to a plum assignment, actually one of two places—manning a radar station somewhere in Alaska or the Korean DMZ. Vindman was rewarded for for his severe lack of judgement in getting into bed with Schiff. If he had kept his mouth shut and stayed away, he would still be employed by his beloved U.S. Army. He’s lucky he’s not in old Rome!

That’s BS - he has just been selected for Top Level School (TLS) which is basically a 1 year Sabbatical and for the Army a guaranteed promotion to O-6. In reality he ( like Gen Miley) is overweight for Army standards and he doesn’t want to lose weight. He also wants to take a decent paying gig at the liberal Brookings Institute.

OK Fatso, lets face some facts. Vindman was never selected to serve in an O-5 command billet (i.e. Battalion Command level). If you don't prove yourself as an O-5 commander, you ain't going to take the next step to O-6 (Colonel). He has probably been passed over for O-6 at least a couple of times (even before the impeachment). His uniform was not to standard (misalignment of insignia etc. - which is why the Army is STUPID to get rid of official photos). Anyway, fat boy was going to take the step BEFORE impeachment - he is just making excuses for his lackluster career.

Also, I know a couple of Army War College grads (classmates in fact) who were not selected for O-6. Previous "jobs" matter as does who you know. In Vindman's case, he did not have the resume for advancement, he had friends in high places that wickered him a slot at the Army War College, but it wasn't enough. Tough beans.

FTA: Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified against the president in impeachment hearings, is retiring from the military in response to White House "bullying," his lawyer told CNN." Evidence, please. A lawyer for Vindman can say what he wants, but critical thinking Americans demand that he provide evidence of his assertions. The only "bully" here was Senator Tammy Duckworth, who blocked the promotions of over a thousand military officers as a way to ensure Vindman was promoted. FTA: ""The President of the United States attempted to force LTC Vindman to choose: Between adhering to the law or pleasing a President. Between honoring his oath or protecting his career. Between protecting his promotion or the promotion of his fellow soldiers," Vindman's attorney told CNN." Senator Tammy Duckworth was responsible for forcing Vindman to choose between "protecting his promotion or the promotion of his fellow soldiers." Let's be honest here!

If the Light Colonel didn't agree with the President's policy choices, as shown in that phone call, his ONLY legitimate course of action was to RESIGN. At his pinnacle of power, Vindman was asked to provide ADVICE for the President to peruse, and accept or reject. If said advice is rejected, either adjust and move on, or leave the job. The President decides not some Lt Col, who is at least 4 or 5 levels below the President in the chain of command. I was told by a flag officer years ago, that the correct answer to a superior officer, especially several levels above your rank, when told to jump, was 'Aye, aye, sir. How high?" Good riddance of an arrogant fools, who's insubordination cannot be excused.

CHICAGO — For many major U.S. cities, this year has been marked by bullets and bloodshed. Over 1,500 people have been shot in Chicago, almost 900 in Philadelphia, and more than 500 in New York City so far in 2020 — all up significantly from the same time last year (1,018 in Chicago, 701 in Philadelphia and 355 in New York). The surge in shootings has been particularly painful for communities of color, which have disproportionately endured the weight of the COVID-19 crisis, the economic recession and social unrest following the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis in May.

Bye bye.' Goya was founded in Manhattan in 1936 by Don Prudencio Unanue and his wife Carolina, immigrants from Spain. The company calls itself the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States and remains in family control, with an estimated value of $3 billion.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee called on Democrats to mobilize together and advocate for passage of a bill to form a commission on slave reparations, calling it a "bold effort that people want to not do." "You must as a community ensure that the Congress moves on H.R. 40 and that is call your members of Congress to ensure they are co-sponsors," she said on Friday during a virtual town hall on "Systemic Racism Beyond Policing." "We're the provocative legislation that people want to think twice about being on because it clearly says that something must be done about the governmental action that was done to enslave Africans

President Donald Trump has served notice to the World Health Organization that the U.S. will no longer take part in its kleptocratic incompetence and its cozying up to dictators and tyrants, including its biggest influencer, China. The reckoning is long overdue. So is one with the United Nations, its parent organization, whose behavior has been far worse. WHO is one of a number of global organizations, the U.N. among them, funded mainly by U.S. taxpayers. Despite its support from the U.S., WHO is yet another multilateral agency that acts as if its job is to oppose and confound America. As

According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.

The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz’s request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd’s death.

Players are required to quarantine for two weeks before the league’s July 30 relaunch, meaning they must limit contact with others and will have all meals delivered directly to their hotel rooms. Nearly immediately after entering “the bubble,” players began sharing their complaints on social media about everything from the food and WiFi to their resort lodging accommodations. The Lakers’ LeBron James compared his luxury suite to heading into a prison sentence,
