Alexander Vindman, who made headlines for his impeachment testimony, is quitting the military after 21 years, citing “a campaign of bullying, intimidation and retaliation.”
Vindman announced his retirement on Twitter:
Today I officially requested retirement from the US Army, an organization I love. My family and I look forward to the next chapter of our lives. pic.twitter.com/h2D9MRUHY2

What Vindman refers to as “intimidation,” may very well have been some sort of burgeoning investigation.
As Sebastian Gorka outlined in his scathing indictment of Vindman:
Since President Donald Trump is the Commander-in-Chief, Vindman violated his chain of command by attempting to usurp President Trump’s authority, and for the sole purpose of his own personal biases against the President. Vindman specifically said, under oath, that he was testifying against the President because he felt that the President was an “outside influencer promoting a false narrative of Ukraine inconsistent with the consensus views of the interagency.” In this statement, Vindman admits that he was not trying to reveal some heinous crime committed by the President, but rather simply disagreed with the President’s foreign policy, which is not an impeachable offense. An officer in the United States Army does not get to testify against the President in a bogus impeachment hearing without repercussions.
