Tammy isn’t pulling her punches as she comes out on the attack over Vindman forced retirement from the military due to his testimony. Trump and his supporter have been calling for Vidnman blood since his testimony.
Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth said she would continue to block over 1,000 senior military promotions until Pentagon leaders explain the “disgraceful situation” that saw key impeachment witness Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman retire from the military Wednesday.
Vindman’s lawyer said he decided to retire in response to a White House “campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation” following his testimony in impeachment hearings.
“Lt. Col. Vindman’s decision to retire puts the spotlight on Secretary of Defense Mark Esper’s failure to protect a decorated combat veteran against a vindictive Commander in Chief,” Duckworth, who is also a combat veteran, said in a statement Wednesday.
