Key impeachment witness Lt. Col. Vindman announces retirement from military

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, one of Trump’s former National Security Council members and one of the key witnesses in the Democrat impeachment effort, has announced that he is quitting the military. 

Vindman’s attorney told CNN that Vindman felt he had to end his 21-year military career because he had experienced an extended “campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation” after Trump’s impeachment acquittal.

Vindman famously testified against President Trump in the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry. Vindman listened in on Trump’s infamous July 2019 phone call to the Ukrainian president, and went to supervisor Tim Morrison with complaints about Trump’s handling of the call.

Vindman, at the time of the impeachment inquiry, alleged that President Trump had done something “wrong,” though he would not go as far as to say that Trump did something “illegal” in the call.

Donald Trump demoted Vindman to a lower position in the Pentagon after the Senate acquittal, sparking outcry from Democrats. On Wednesday, Vindman announced that he will retire from the military altogether, blaming Trump for his unceremonious exit.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), who is auditioning to be Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s vice president, announced last week that she would block the promotion of over 1,000 promotions until the Trump administration agreed to promote Vindman to colonel.

Duckworth has yet to respond to Vindman pulling the rug out from under her publicity stunt.

    1. It’s amazing that he wasn’t run out of the military via court’s martial or administrative discharge and his pension denied. I guess the republicans will continue to act like sheep and get sheared by the dems. The republican members of congress have zero killer instinct and it will cost them. Trump, whom I consider to be our greatest president in living memory, has the cajones but probably was talked out of doing anything by his don’t make waves advisors.

      1. AMEM figmo w! You called it completely right. He should have received an administrative discharge for falsely accusing the Commander in Chief and denied his pension for conduct unbecoming of an officer of the U.S. military. He resigned to try to get out with his pension before the wouldn’t allow him to do so.

      2. He was probably offered a deal..retire or lose everything and ready to face court martial and prison. Dems are behind everything screwed up and you’re right Republicans better get some balls and do their job.

    1. Well she will fit right in with the rest of the Democratic liars. They never quit. I hope I can see what happens to them on judgment day from the man above.

  1. That is a blessing!! Another lying coward Democrat is gone. More to come real soon! OBAMA, BIDEN, PELOSKI, SCHUMMER FOR SURE. THEY ARE LIARS AND UN AMERICANS! All are up to no good for the American People. Unable to do their JOBS!!

    1. AGREED LOCK THEM ALL UP. THESE DEMO RATS ARE ALL COMMUNIST PARTY INCLUDING JOE BIDEN AND HIS SON HUNTER. WERE IS HUNTER? HIDING?

  2. Good riddance to lying trash. You are just lucky you weren’t tried for perjury for lying to congress!

  3. His announcement that he’s retiring removed him from the promotion list. To promote you must be willing to commit for at least 2 years possibly 3 additional active service. Or that’s what I was told by Gen Daniel Voljanin (my Godfather).

  4. Good riddance to this fake patriot who is really a traitor to our country. I am so glad the evil Colonel Vindman is retiring.

  5. This jerk was testifying against the President about a telephone call that most informants admit he did not actually hear. He is a despicable creature and will spend the rest of his life in obscurity…where he belongs..little weasel!

  6. Im sure the Military gave the tratior a choice, like the doj,fbi.tratiors.quit of get fired… another swamp rat goes down.

    1. He is a disgrace to the uniform. My husband is a veteran of 30 years and it made my blood boil to see such a coward wearing the uniform

  7. Two face traitor a disgrace to the uniform. You a treasonous mistake how dare you misinterpret a presidential phone call and leak it. The Democratic Party has you brainwashed. What you need to do is take that uniform off you don’t deserve to ware it. Than go hang yourselve for treason. N. N.

  8. Vindman was a hack. I believe it was Vindman that actually contacted the whistleblower and got the whole impeachment hoax started. He is a disgrace to our nation and won’t be missed. He wasn’t missed once the impeachment hearings were over anyway.

  9. Vindman’s questionable testimony led to the useless nonsense impeachment sham that delayed the growing Covid-19 contagion response we now find ourselves in one of the worst crises in US history. He & his lying Dem cohorts should take that to their fated infernos.

  10. He should be demoted to private first, then retired. He is a POS not deserving of the military uniform. Good for the military that he is leaving, any chance he’s taking his stupid twin?

  11. Awesome! he should of, at the minimum been forced to retire like they did to Ollie North. It was not his job to second guess the president in any way. Insubordination at the highest level and conduct unbecoming an officer. Both court martial offences. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    1. Leavenworth would be a nice place for him to retire. Minus his pension, which he should not get if he would be demoted following a court martial to buck private! Just saying…

  12. HOORAY!!!!!!!! HE IS LUCKY?????? HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN “COURT MARSHALLED”!!!!!!! I’M JUST HOLDING OUT FOR “KARMA”. “WHAT GOES AROUND,COMES AROUND”!!!!!!!………THIS GOES FOR “ALL THE DEMS!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST WANT TO BE ALIVE TO SEE IT…………

  13. He tried to ruin our president! He is a “hero” to the Demoncrats! Duck worth was going to block promotions until he got promoted? I THOUGHT SHE LOVED AMERICA, AS SHE IS SO ANXIOUS TO SAY, SINCE SHE LOST HER LEGS IN AFGHANISTAN SERVING HER COUNTRY! HOW CAN SHE STAND WITH THIS TRAITOR, CONSIDERING SHE IS A FORMER ARMY HELICOPTER PILOT? SHE LOVES AMERICA ONLY WHEN IT SUITS HER PURPOSES! SHE GIVES THE ARMY AND VETERANS A BAD NAME!

  14. If the Purple Heart Awardee and War Veteran Senator Tammy Duckworth joins the Biden ticket as a VP, her scurrilous cowardice threats such as to “hold up unless a conditions she prescribed were met” were required for promotions of Promotion Qualified Officers, – Officers Selected “For Promotion” by Duly Appointed Military Promotion Boards -, would be in contravention to Established Prescribed Promotion Military Regulation Processes identify her to actually could be construed to be a failing in her responsibilities to properly Act on the Senate Armed Services Committee. This matter as well as her dishonorable failure to act accordingly to Military Regulation besmirch her formerly esteemed character and Could perhaps deem her unqualified to serve as a US Senator much less ever be an acceptable VP candidate for any Presidential candidate. Senator Duckworth’s improper actions and inappropriate verbosity regarding these matters should be the Subject of a Congressional Review of Senatorial Improprieties – Politicizing Officer Promotions and displaying a blatant disregard for good order and execution of Military Regulations!

  15. Defunding the police, supporting BLM, Antifa, and other anarchists, while trying to destroy the constitution, and “reforming” America is the democrat’s plan. Joe Biden just announced he thought the police should be defunded.
    If that’s not what you want, you need to vote a straight REPUBLICAN TICKET.

  16. Congratulations to Col. Vindman, a true patriot, for serving the country in his testimony before Congress in spite of the pressure againt him. This shows true bravery.

  17. This does not stun Trump. He knows that everyone can be replaced. Get a grip and do accurate reporting.

  18. Good riddance to the communist Ukrainian infiltrator and spy. He should have had to spend the rest of his life in military prison. Obama & Biden plant. They weaponized every department of Federal government before the inauguration to remove the president.

  19. Vindman didn’t follow the chain of command and tried to make policy as a lowly LT. Col. It is no wonder that his fellow officer want nothing to do with him.

  20. The article says he listened in on the phone call. He did not. He needs to be in prison at Ft. Leavenworth.

  21. Nobody likes a tattle tale. Especially when it is proven they lied because of political differences. He is licky he hasn’t been brought up on charges for lying. Didnt the dems try to get Flynn for lying? Vindman needs a “blanket party” Thrown in his honor on his way out the door. Good riddance.

  22. Goodbye Benedict Arnold, You shouldn’t be Collecting Any Pension AFTERALL YOUR COMRADS WANT TO DEFUND POLICE AND SERVICE MEMBERS. ARE YOU CRYING ABOUT BULLYING? WELCOME TO PRESIDENT TRUMPS WORLD. THE DIFFERENCE IS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS HANDLING THIS BY HISSELF ALL ALONE NO CRYING. YOU COMMUNIST VINDMAN HAVE YOUR COMMUNIST DEMONCRATS TO RUN TO AFTER YOUR DONE SPYING ON PHONES.

  23. Vindman is a Liar and a wimp. He is also a disgrace for being bought by Schiff. He is no loss to the service at all. if he was a Enlisted member he would have been charged and tried and kicked out on less than Honorable Service

  24. Funny thing about human nature, when your caught saying or doing something wrong and you knew it was wrong, its mighty hard to admit you were wrong, so as human nature is, you blame some one else…its their fault. You did nothing wrong.

  25. He should have been gone right after his bogus testimony against our president. Not the mark of a dedicated leader.

  26. If you can call going against your Commander and Chief doing nothing wrong. Then you have never been in the military. He deserves to be court marshaled and demoted to a private E-1 and booted out of the Military with a dishonorable discharge with no GI benefits, just like many true Americans have been done.

  27. Like!! I blog frequently and I really thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest.
