Military officer who reported Trump most likely confronted retaliation, inquiry finds
…from the Washington Publish
[ Editor’s Note: It was nice to see Colonel Vindman get a full clearance from Trump’s smearing attempts in retaliation for the his testimony to the impeachment committee.
There are two types of justice that live in DC, the one that comes slowly and thatwhich never comes. Trump claims to be the ultimate victim, but has a trail of lawsuit victims in his rear view mirror that say different.
Vindman can now sit back and watch as Trump goes through endless litigation for possibly the rest of his life, and will probably get others to pay for it all, as he has a long track record of making others pay.
That might be what steered him into politics, a place were he could build a political following that he could use when his magic of dancing out of lawsuit courtrooms came to an end.
So three cheers today for the DoD IG sending Mr. Vindman along his life’s journey unsmeared by the Orange Baffoon one man crime wave. Vindman’s family never will have to avoid anyone’s glare, any where …Jim W. Dean ]
