They will. You pointed out this was not the first time this happened, and it will not be the last. Last I saw was that no one in the Pentagon would answer questions on are the protecting of him as the top 2 Civilians told the press in Nov. they would. You see the dictator in action, and it only will get worse till Dictator is out of Office.

The Donald has found in being acquitted he can now say and do just as he pleases, as many of us were afraid of. He has lost whatever brain cells he has left in that brain of his.

 

A decorated soldier who has served his country with honor to be disgraced by a man and I will not say our President as he is not deserving that title in my eyes, is absolutely disgracing himself.

 

Mr bone spurs who was afraid of being drafted and sent to war to protect his Country as  Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman did. How does he think this man got all the way to the title of Lt. Col. ? Surely not by testifying to Congress and telling the truth. nor telling the truth his entire career.  The Donald has lied and cheated people all his life in his so-called careers, hasn't even paid many people for jobs they did for him. 

 

No sorry to say, Lt.Col. Alexander Vindman has earned his title, The Donald in my eyes has only earned the title of a lier and cheat with 5 bone spurs to keep him out of the Military.  A COWARD.

The Navy did what tRump wanted, basically. I hope that doesn't happen this time. What puzzles me is that so many tRump supporters that tout patriotism and have great respect for our military and our soldiers would support trump getting revenge on this guy this way and using the military to do it. tRump is being a dictator.

Thanks for posting.

 

Certainly it was in the President's prerogative to remove anyone from his personnel.

 

But to suggest disciplinary against someone who committed no infractions?

 

"Priceless!" as the Amex commercial used to say. That is just priceless Trump. What an idiot.

 

What is disgusting is that many people will lap that up and accept and adopt this tarring of a loyal soldier discharging his duty. And I do not understand this, many of the "lappers" are, in my observation, those who would normally and generally blindly (*) follow "mom, apple pie and the Flag" in all things USA, and have great reverence for those who serve in the military. And now they act like an attacking rabble?

 

 

(*) ETA: and perhaps that's the problem, "blindly follow"

Trump suggests military should consider disciplinary action against Vindman

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump suggested the military should consider disciplinary action against Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in the House impeachment inquiry, and said there could be more departures from his administration related to the proceeding.

"We sent him on his way to a much different location, and the military can handle him any way they want," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday. "General Milley has him now. I congratulate General Milley."

 

Army Gen. Mark Milley is chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Trump on Friday removed Vindman, who testified in the House impeachment inquiry about the president's conduct toward Ukraine, from his National Security Council post at the White House and had him escorted off the grounds.

Trump also fired Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, who also testified in the impeachment inquiry. Vindman's twin brother, a National Security Council lawyer who did not testify, was also let go.

 

Asked by reporters whether Vindman should face disciplinary action, Trump said: "That's going to be up to the military. We'll have to see. But if you look at what happened, they're going to certainly — I would imagine — take a look at that."

Trump said he was "wasn't happy" with Vindman and accused him without evidence of having reported "very inaccurate things" about Trump's phone call in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

"After they said these horrible things and made up these horrible, horrible lies about what was said on the call, and then I said, 'Here's the call,'" Trump told reporters. "If I didn't have a transcript, it would've been my word against their word."

Trump also suggested that more departures from the White House could come, telling reporters, "Oh, sure, absolutely, there always are."

 

At an event in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, national security adviser Robert O’Brien said that the decision to remove the Vindman brothers from their White House positions was unrelated to impeachment.

"Their services were no longer needed," O'Brien said. "The president is entitled to staffers that want to execute his policy, that he has confidence in."

MY COMMENT:

 

So now the Draft-Dodger-In-Chief instructs the Military once again to take vindictive action against one of it's honorable soldiers.

 

It's not enough for Trump to try to control the DOJ, our Courts and our Investigative Institutions, he want s to also micro-manage our Military to take vengeful actions against our honorable career soldiers.

 

How far will the Washington Republicans and his cult supporters let him go?
