    Curious to know; “How would the offense be dealt with under the Uniform Code of Military Justice? It would appear that when there are no consequences to alleged undue and unlawful conduct, can there be any discipline, or does it matter to the progressives?

    I applaud you for your article. It is honest and straight forward. No president wants to have spies or traitors on their team, it is unproductive and makes the team suspicious of the others and fearful to talk openly and honestly with their Commander in Cheif. Sadly Trump held onto too many people who were from other Democratic presidents and it cost him precious time and exhausting effort to stand up for himself taking away the time he could have been doing more great things for we the people. Not that the democratic congress was going to work with him regardless. I applaud our president for all he has still managed to accomplish with all of this pressure that has been forced at him. It shows his real character and his true love for God, country and we the people of this great land.

    Stated succinctly. Thank you for explaining that others may understand. LTC Vindman should be disciplined for violation of national security, disobeying a direct order and conduct unbecoming an officer. Letting him skate sets a serious and poisonous precedent otherwise. This is from an old NCO, a CPA who has testified in courts and in government bodies – an old CPA who believes facts are fundamental to justice. Those who failed to heed this admonition have disgraced their positions during the recent Congressional proceedings and undermined our country on a number of levels. They should also be brought to true justice, Our country deserves no less.

    No the truth has to matter. No one is above the law.

    Who cares

    I believe that just reassignment of the military member Vindman was really a soft punishment and could have been worse and the others are lucky they are not in jail. Well all of them

    The next president should present Mr. Vindman, Mr. Sondland and the great Ms. Yovanovitch with the Medal of Freedom. They proved to be brave and patriotic Americans. A national holiday could also be created to honor these Americans.

    I don’t “hate” them either, but I think that they were traitors to their sworn jobs, and as such should be punished. This article is correct in saying that they weren’t really fired, just re-assigned. The could have gotten prison time for what they did. If this was a President like say, Dwight D, Eisenhower, they would have been court martialed and sent to prison or as in former times, taken out and shot as traitors to this country and it’s President. I would call what Vindman did, spying.

    As a retired Lt Col (USAF) myself, I can say with certainly that if I’d done what Vindman did, my bags would be packed, either for a new assignment (best case), or for my jail cell at Leavenworth after my court-martial (worst case). His participation in the sham impeachment is outrageous! As I understand it, his immediate superior was in on “the call” but had no problem with it. Clearly Vindman has a higher opinion of himself than he’s entitled to. We all got medals–I got tons of ’em too…doesn’t make anyone more “privileged” than another when it comes to right and wrong. Now he moves to another “cush” job, this time at the Pentagon. Poor, poor fella….

    The only problem about this whole thing is I wish Pres Trump had followed the ‘great’ Obama’s example and handed out pink slips to EVERYBODY before he even took office!! Never seems to pay trying to give the opposing side an fair chance.
