    Having so many people around actively trying to sabotage the Executive branch function has however been a huge problem.

    I view those who think if themselves as "The Resistance in the White House" as traitors.

    They might as well be Russian agents, but of course they are not that self aware.
    I dont think he expected or anticiated the level of animosity these people have toward him.
    I have to be honest that some of things we learned was surprising to me too. I dont think any rational person would not be surprised at how far of an extent they went to take out their anger.
    I dont agree with everything Trump does but I am impressed by how he stands up to them.
    I remember when Obama took a swipe at him at a WH correspondence dinner. I watched him just sort of wilt like a hothouse flower. I thought to myself "if this guy cant take that he does not have the chops needed to be the potus"
    Boy was I wrong about that. I misjudged him in a big way.

He testified to what he heard on the phone call to the best of his ability and seemed to have no axe to grind. Now he has been removed from his position, which in itself violates the laww, but neither the president or the GOP care about the law. Now trump is suggesting that the military should bring charges against Vindman, for what, no one really knows. But Could or should this president go ahead and force by order the military to discipline Vindman or anyone?
    No, he should not. Whether he has the power to do so remains to be seen. This is yet another example of Trump's petty and infantile vindictiveness directed at anyone who displeases The Master.
    It also demonstrates Trump's jealousy of anyone who served America honourably and was recognised for it. It goes some way (in Trump's squirrel brain), to offsetting the quite obvious inferiority complex he has.

    Why, for doing his job and being decorated for it?

    Is arse-kissing Trump a part of the job description?

    Now Trump? He won't do anything. He'll be content to trolling the haters by saying things he knows will trigger them.

    btw, your simplified notion of what Vindman has done requires you to pretend not to know things...as usual. A bit of real investigation would show that Vindman, Ciaramella, a Schiffty staffer or two, an ICIG and a group of Lawfare people concocted the entire Ukraine nonsense. THAT could send Vindman to Leavenworth for a long time.

    But...as I said...it just isn't worth it.
    Name some of these plentiful charges you imagine could be brought.

    Will Vindman face courts martial?

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    yawn...

    Typical Trump hater...and a foreign one, to boot.

    Do you seriously think the DOD gives a **** what YOU think is a "steaming pile"?

    Anyway, as I've said many times, Vindman won't face any charges. You can relax.
