  1. This is the doing of a corrupted President allowed and favored to do all the wrong and wicked things.

      @9752matt obviously you didn’t listen to the actual testimony, you just swallowed the Fux/Oann/Trump lies instead.

      Go read the Constitution. We are a country of laws, not of men (and women).

    • John DiGiacomo | July 8, 2020 at 4:26 PM | Reply

      9752matt are you REALLY that stupid? He answered a lawful subpoena, by a Congressional Committee. He is obligated to respect the law, and cannot refuse to do so regardless of an unlawful order. Every word of testimony was verified by other witnesses. Trump’s attorneys told Mueller’s investigation that Trump couldn’t testify because he was incapable of telling the truth. Vindman was a man of character and honor, something Trump has no idea what that means, and apparently neither do you.

    • … and corrupt Congressmen, congresswomen and Senators. If Moscow Mitch was willing to allow Trump to be held to account for his malfeasance Trump would not be in the Oval office now. Trump gave his wife a Cabinet portfolio and in doing so bought Moscow Mitch’s eternal servitude.

      Bolton and Vindman are men of honor. Trump is not.

    • Joel Sattler Jon Bolton? Are you sure we are talking about the same guy? Speaking out against Trump doesn’t change the fact he is a pos

      @9752matt so YOU have no problem with a liar he lies as long as he is fake president? do YOU have a working brain?

    • Sop what do we do to protest if the Supreme Court overrules the two lower court decisions and hide trump’s finances? What an absolute disgrace, the USA is no different than any other corrupt banana republic. No longer a just society

    • DP DP So it’s either do what liberals want or outrage huh

  3. Vets should be outraged at how Vindma was blackballed. This is horrible to lose such an excellent officer. And criminal Trump was able to keep his job thanks to his MANY enablers.

    • And yet there is a Troops for Trump. i wonder how they feel about Trump after he said and did nothing about the Russia payments/bounty to assassinate American Soldiers. Just goes to show the level and degree of Stupidity in this country….Masks & Trump cultist.

    • mathew shackelford | July 8, 2020 at 9:16 PM | Reply

      @justsaying 1. that’s alleged. 2. I wonder how democrats felt about Obama levying his FBI against an incoming NSA official? 3. I wonder how democrats felt when obama and hillary left our folks in Benghazi to get murdered and then lied about it. Obama promised to bring the perpetrators to justice yet he never did.

      What the democrats have done over the last 4 years is exactly why I’ll NEVER vote for nor support a democrat.

      Democrats want to: abolish ice, defund the police, eliminate borders, empy the jails, give voting rights to illegals and felons, incite violence. Look at Seattle and Atlanta right now, democrat controlled cities and they’ve been destoryed over this defund the police narrative. Nevermind Chicago and its shitshow. Good luck blaming Trump for that.

    • @Linda Scott listen here “Greta”!

      Fact: I am not accusing vindman of anything I didn’t witness him say or do!

      Fact: antifa has publicly announced it is a Soros funded, Marxist organization, with the intent to destroy America, and replace it with a communist country!!!

      Fact: chaz/chop was the antifa/blm version of “kristallnacht”!!!

      Do yourself, and the rest of America, a favor…grow up!

    • Sop what do we do to protest if the Supreme Court overrules the two lower court decisions and hide trump’s finances? What an absolute disgrace, the USA is no different than any other corrupt banana republic. No longer a just society

    • @DP DP 👈 3rd time posting this irrelevant comment.

      Ever hear of the logical fallacy of the red herring? Cuz you’re doing a good job illustrating it.

    This is JoAnn- Lt Col Vindman- u r a true American!!!! You can do so much, Americans need you to live a good and happy life. Find what gives you joy and live well my friend.

    I find this to be a Disgrace .45 and all his cronies have made it hard for our GOOD and Faithful Servant’s too do their Job.45 is not worth a tissue to blow his nose on. How much more should ask America to put up with? We as a nation are going to regret all of our people with all the/ knowledge just to leave. We should be getting rid of 45..This is a shame..

  6. That’s not right. He’s been forced into retirement while the draft dodger is holding the highest office in the land. Again, the do nothing Congress did nothing to help him after he did his duty to the country. REPULSIVE! So what else is new? Business as usual. Time to vote them all out!

      His twin too. And the twin wasnt even involved in any wayn

    • @Brenda Taylor
      That’s true. The criminals are still there and the good men & patriots are vilified. The laws are made for the criminals and the evil. Time for this bs to end!

    • Agree.
      Repubs Senators & Trump first…then anyone else who thought sitting on their butt while this went on was ok.
      I am so fed up!

    • @Lauri Rohr
      Me too. I wake up angry and get more angry if I watch the news.😠

      @Jonny Doom Ukraine did not say he did not say what Vindman said he said wasn’t said….the Ukrainian President said he didn’t feel pressured. there is a difference, the fact that you’re too dumb to follow the statement is not my fault. As for the UCMJ, I am very well versed with its Articles and would have you for lunch if you want to argue what it says about legal orders.

    • Rune - Thorne | July 8, 2020 at 7:53 PM | Reply

      @Myra Ripley I hate people who wrap themselves up in the shrouds of patriotism and questions it in others, like Donald Trump, these people are Fake triots.

    • @Jonny Doom 100% Trump Puppet

  8. Is this how OUR Military Heros are treated???? Thank you Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman for you many, many years of service!

      Trump probably tried to send him to Afghanistan so the Russian backed taliban could collect another bounty.

    • Scotti Leslie | July 8, 2020 at 6:39 PM | Reply

      @Doreen Parker General Flynn promotes nonsensical QAnon conspiracy theories like PizzaGate, that makes him a cheater, and an embarrassment to the military of the United States.

    • Yep, I’m afraid so. Trump is a Treasonous Traitor and yet Worshiped by the Ignorant.

    • Sop what do we do to protest if the Supreme Court overrules the two lower court decisions and hide trump’s finances? What an absolute disgrace, the USA is no different than any other corrupt banana republic. No longer a just society

    • @DP DP cut and paste the same irrelevant comment much?

  9. I hope he gets a place in Biden’s administration

    • Linda Scott | July 8, 2020 at 4:15 PM | Reply

      @josef jerbils omg you moronic little Trumpturds are so tiresome. I watched crooks looting with no cops stopping them while the cops were elsewhere shooting rubber bullets and tear gas at peaceful protestors.

      Only you Trumpturds believe the Trump narrative. That’s why Mangolini the Malignant is going down in November. Bigly.

      @Karen Byrd Trump can’t touch his pension. Your hate for Trump is blinding you to reality.

    • mathew shackelford | July 8, 2020 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      it would only be fitting he gets a spot on quid pro quo Joe’s administration….but Biden won’t get elected.

    • Linda Scott | July 8, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      @mathew shackelford in your dreams maybe.

      But we are working just as hard to get the spineless Rethuglicans out of the Senate, in case Russia and China succeed in getting their chump Trump re elected. Then impeachment will result in removal.

    The only solace is tRump will be joining Lt. Col. Vindman in retirement shortly.

    This is a true tragedy. A foreign born true patriot of his adopted country is being punished for being patriotic to this country by a vicious, incompetent president who is the most traitorous president in history. In losing Lt Col Vindman, we are seeing American patriots slaughtered at the altar of Trump.

  14. Johnny Grijalva | July 8, 2020 at 1:48 PM | Reply

    Vindman will be remembered in history books as character leaves a legacy of truth and honor for country. My utmost respects.

    • Johnny Grijalva I think you meant a fat dork who destroyed his career to be a liberal hero

    • Silly Milkmaid | July 8, 2020 at 7:53 PM | Reply

      Actually he was a medal polisher and a chow thief and hated by everyone he served with. So, there’s that.

  15. Trump, Barr and his various enablers are discusting.

  16. As a Veteran: that man is a patriot and is an example of honor for others to follow

  17. Lt. Col Vindman will be remember as a dedicated patriot who served with integrity. Thank You Col. Vindmen for your service!
    trump will be remembered as an unintelligent, unqualified, unethical traitor, and a total embarrassment to our US history!

    This is a travesty, this career military officer who has dedicated his life to our country has been bullied out by a corrupt president & administration …we are a weaker nation for it!

    • Yes we are! This selfless servant who has made more sacrifices in one deployment than the president has his whole life. He doesn’t deserve the treatment he is facing, the fact that he is is disgusting!!

      @Bucky Pinata Yep. He was a chow thief. A real POS.

    • @Bucky Pinata lol as if you have any integrity or courage of this man. Gtfo grandpa

  19. This administration is full of weak evil people bullying all the good ones out of their rightful places.

  20. Lt. Col. Vindman is paying a high price for doing what was right. His integrity, honesty and unselfish devotion to country is rarely seen in this time in our country. I am grateful to him and wish the best for his future. Hopefully his character takes him to where ever he wants to go. Hopefully the people who pressured him out will get what their lack of character deserves.
