    Army won't investigate Vindman over impeachment testimony, top leader says


    Vindman was ousted from his position on the NSC last week after the Senate acquitted Trump.

    The Army will not investigate Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the former National Security Council staffer who testified in the president’s impeachment investigation, the service’s top civilian said Friday.

    Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy made the announcement at an event just days after President Donald Trump said he imagined the military would “take a look at” whether Vindman should face disciplinary action for the “horrible things” he told House investigators about the president’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last July.


    Vindman was ousted from his position on the NSC last week after the Senate acquitted Trump. Vindman’s lawyer said the move amounted to retribution.

    McCarthy on Friday downplayed Vindman’s return to the Army, saying he simply returned to the service a few months earlier than planned and would have a “bridging assignment” for a couple of months in the Army’s headquarters office in Washington.

    “Then he will be heading to a senior service college this summer. There’s no investigation into him,” McCarthy said at a National Press Club luncheon.
    On Tuesday, Trump told reporters “if you look at what happened, [the military is] going to certainly, I would imagine, take a look at that.”

    “It turned out that what he reported was very different [than what occurred],” Trump added. “And also when you look at the person he reports to, said horrible things, avoided the chain of command, leaked, did a lot of bad things. And so we sent him on his way to a much different location, and the military can handle him anyway they want.”...

    Good for them. You would think that all patriotic Americans would be proud of a hero who stands up and speaks out against corruption in our government, no matter who is committing it. Especially if the corrupt one is an IMPOTUS who pardons war criminals and constantly tries to interfere in areas he remains ignorant (and always will) about.

    Then Trumps order to him was not lawful and Vindman was required by the UCMJ to disobey it. Ok case closed for me.
