Role in Trumpís impeachment casts shadow over Army officerís promotion
Washington Post ^ | June 18, 2020 | Shane Harris, Missy Ryan, Josh Dawsey, Greg Miller

An Army officer’s promotion is in jeopardy over what some officials fear could be White House retaliation for his role in last year’s impeachment inquiry, raising the possibility that President Trump might again intervene in military affairs, according to officials familiar with the matter.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who received a Purple Heart for his actions in Iraq and later served as a White House aide on European affairs, is among hundreds of officers selected to be promoted to full colonel this year. Such promotions are typically signed off on by Army and then Pentagon leaders before moving to the White House and the Senate for a confirmation vote. The list is now with a Pentagon personnel office.

Multiple government officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to address personnel matters, have voiced concern, however, that the White House could strike Vindman’s name once it is conveyed, effectively sanctioning him for testimony he gave under subpoena to House lawmakers.

Another deep state security breach. These lists are supposed to be confidential until released.

Without a command or equivalent position I would expect it highly unlikely he'd be selected for O6.

Scum.

Pond sucking scum.

I hope his career is torpedoed, and I would get great satisfaction if Trump would in any way involved in ruining his career and life the way HE attempted to ruin Trump’s Presidency and life.

So?

How many conservatives under Obama were denied promotion or even forced to resign for political retaliation?

Don’t care anymore - this is war

Strange that the article posits that the commander in chief is “interfering” in the military.

I can’t believe this guy was ever selected for 0-6. I suspect his relief from his assignment in the NSA and the OER’s that should have accompanied that never caught up with the promotion board before it convened and adjourned. This guy should never have made the 0-6 list and should be immediately scratched and processed for retirement. Hell, he doesn’t even meet the Army Weight Standards.

President Trump is NOT a Prime Minister. Among other things, he is Commander-in-Chief, and is OBLIGED to intervene in military affairs.

Promotion in the Army?

He shouldn’t even be in this country, much less in the Army. He’s a Ukrainian, masquerading as a US citizen.

This worm, along with his brother, need to be expelled.

How many real warrior officers have been denied promotion because they are not “politically correct”?

President’s prerogative. He doesn’t need a reason.

A Purple Heart for a paper cut. I hope he survives that tragic ordeal.

Just going to say the same thing, especially since the promotion has to go to Trump's desk before Senate confirmation. NOT APPROVED! Stamped in big red letters!

He was a spy for the deepstate conspiracy to bring down the Commander-in-Chief. Hope he’s eventually prosecuted with his co-conspirators.

Participate in a failed coup, expect the long knives. You deserved it.

Ooohhh, a little weasel doesn’t get promoted and we’re all supposed to feel SO BAD for him.

Meanwhile law-abiding Americans are getting their heads bashed in by rioters.
