The fat-faced Lt Col who ratted out the President of the United States for an offense that never happened is finally leaving active duty after a 21-year span.
As reported by CNN, Vindman is leaving earlier than he’d like, but somehow his tendering his resignation is due to President Trump bullying him.
Penned by Jim Sciutto, CNN’s Chief National Security Correspondent, “Vindman has endured a ‘campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation’ spearheaded by the President following his testimony in the impeachment inquiry last year…”
Interestingly enough, when Vindman became a household name with his whistleblower accusation directed directly at President Trump, Joel Pollock of Breitbart.com reminds the world (emphasis mine);
After overhearing the call, Vindman complained to NSC counsel — though not to his immediate supervisor, Tim Morrison. In his closed-door testimony, he admitted that he did not think the president had done anything “illegal,” merely that he had done something “wrong.”
He also complained that the president’s policymaking in the region had gone outside the “interagency consensus,” a claim that Republicans said showed Vindman’s primary concerns were about foreign policy, which is set by the president and not by the executive agencies that are supposed to report to him.
But back to CNN, Sciutto has noted that if Vindman hadn’t submitted his retirement papers, his next duty station would have been the National War College in Washington, DC, which is a standard requirement for Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Space Force Lt Cols, as well as Navy and Coast Guard Commanders, all attend if they have any hope of picking up Colonel or Captain.
Not exactly like Capt Stillman (of “Stripes” fame) being assigned to a weather station somewhere in the in the wilds of Alaska, huh?

He corrects @DevinNunes who called him Mr. w/ the prissy reply
“It’s LTC Vindman”
But only a fat-faced loser
Hated by everyone in his unit
