    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy said on Friday there were no investigations into Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, the former National Security Council aide who testified in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial and was fired by the White House along with his twin brother. On Tuesday, Trump said the military may consider disciplining Vindman, who provided some of the most damaging testimony during an investigation by the U.S. House of Representatives of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. “There’s no investigations of him,” McCarthy said during an event at the National Press Club. Vindman is back at the Army and...

    President Trump on Tuesday suggested the military should consider additional disciplinary action against Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who provided damaging testimony against Trump in the impeachment inquiry and was reassigned from his White House job last week. "We sent him on his way to a much different location, and the military can handle him any way they want," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. "Gen. Milley has him now. I congratulate Gen. Milley. He can have him." Gen. Mark Milley is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Asked specifically if the Pentagon should pursue further action against...

    The word on the street from some qualified sources is that former Deep State crooked cops are going to be arrested this week. But another source, the same one who first outed Ciaramella as the whistleblower, Greg Rubini on Twitter, is saying Dirty cops Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe will both be arrested this week, maybe even Monday or Tuesday:

    House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., reacted on Monday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi leaving the door open for more investigations into President Trump despite his acquittal in his Senate impeachment trial last week, saying “I’m not sure that they [Democrats] actually know how to do anything else.” […] “I’d say that old habits die hard,” Nunes said on Monday. “They’ve done nothing else for their entire time that they’ve controlled Congress and don’t forget the Democrats on the intelligence committee started this right after Trump was elected so that’s going over three years.” He went on to...
  • Bergdahl, Manning, Vindman: Heroes of the Progressive Socialist Left

    The progressive socialist left, along with their media accomplices, have gone into another apoplectic unhinged rage. I know, what else is new? This time it is all about the dismissal of one US Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. LTC Vindman has now risen to the dubious acclaim of being referred to as a hero. In the fall of 2018, here in Texas, there had to be an emergency session of the Texas State Board of Education because some leftists wanted to remove the term “heroic” from Texas state history curriculum in reference to the defenders of the Alamo. The left...

    President Trump is making good on his promises to “drain the swamp” and cut Obama-era holdovers from his staffs, especially the critical and recently controversial National Security Council. Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200. Since entering the White House, Trump has relied on staffs smaller than previous administrations and has noted how prior president’s had a much smaller NSC team.

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney confirmed he has a secret Twitter account, which was opened in 2011, shortly after he announced he was running for president. The senator discussed the account in an interview with The Atlantic but did not reveal what his name was at the time. After the interview, however, Slate was able to determine it was the locked account of Pierre Delecto, with the handle @qaws9876.

    Sen. Mitt Romney confirmed that he runs an alter ego Twitter account under the alias Pierre Delecto. A profile on the Utah Republican published by The Atlantic on Sunday revealed that Romney operates a separate account to monitor political news and commentary but didn't expose his handle. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he told the outlet, but "I’m following 668 people.” A reporter for Slate later uncovered what she believed to be Romney's account under the handle @qaws9876 and the name Pierre Delecto. The author of the Atlantic piece then asked the senator if it was indeed...

    "The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins published a lengthy profile on Mitt Romney, apparently part of Romney’s effort to set himself up as the noble Republican foil to an out-of-control president." "About midway through, the usually guarded senator revealed that, just like fellow lone-voice-of reason-haver James Comey, he was the owner of a secret Twitter account."

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday called for the Democrat primary debate audience in New Hampshire to give a standing ovation for Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman hours after he was removed from the National Security Council by the White House. “Col. Vindman got thrown out of the White House today, walked out,” Biden said. President Trump “should have been pinning a medal on Vindman and not on Rush Limbaugh.” “I think we should call stand and give Col. Vindman a show of how much we support him,” the former vice president added. “Stand up and clap for Vindman!”

    President Trump on Friday ousted Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, making him the second official who testified in the House impeachment inquiry to be dismissed. "I was advised today that the president intends to recall me effective immediately as United States Ambassador to the European Union,” Sondland said in a statement. "I am proud of our accomplishments," Sondland added, thanking Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "Our work here has been the highlight of my career.” Sondland's statement came just hours after Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was removed from his post with the National Security Council and...

    Calling Vindman a traitor implies that he had honor to begin with. Benedict Arnold, who's subsequent actions invented the traitor label that bears his name, was an heroic field commander and soldier until he committed his unspeakable acts. So, Vindman and his Tweedledee Dee brother aren't traitors - they're worse. They are simply enemies of our Republic and should be dealt accordingly other than being let go weeks before they were supposed to leave anyway but still maintaining rank and going on leftist shows to speak out against their former boss.

    President Trump and his aides wasted little time opening a campaign of retribution against those he blames for his impeachment, firing on Friday two of the most prominent witnesses in the inquiry against him barely 48 hours after the Senate acquitted the president. Emboldened by his victory and determined to strike back, Mr. Trump fired Gordon D. Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union, within hours of the White House dismissing Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, a decorated Iraq war veteran who was a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council. Both officials testified to a House committee about the...

    The White House plans to transfer Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, whose testimony in the House impeachment hearings infuriated President Trump and his allies, out of the National Security Council staff as early as Friday, two senior administration officials said. It was not immediately clear where he would next be sent within the Defense Department, one administration official said, but Colonel Vindman is on active duty in the military. The action comes just days after Mr. Trump was acquitted in a Senate impeachment trial that turned in part on the testimony of Colonel Vindman and other administration officials who described...

The White House is reportedly weighing options to dismiss Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council (NSC) in an effort to shrink its foreign policy bureaucracy, a report said. Bloomberg reported that the White House plans to frame it as part of an NSC staff downsizing, not a retaliation. Then the article starts spinning for #The Resistance: Vindman had drawn applause from spectators during his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee -- after expressing his love for...
