Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., on Thursday announced her intention to block Senate confirmations for 1,123 senior U.S. Armed Forces promotions until Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirms he will not block the "expected and deserved" promotion of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.
Vindman, an Iraq War veteran, served on the White House National Security Council and was thrust into the limelight last year when he testified about President Trump's July 2019 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that became the heart of a Democratic-led impeachment inquiry.
Vindman said he listened to the call and filed a whistleblower complaint over concerns that Trump allegedly tried to pressure Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, who served on the board of one of Ukraine's largest natural gas companies.

Oh...Vindman....that piece of cr**.
One doesnt just get promoted to COL.
And all of the poor schmoes who have been waiting to get their well deserved promotions have wait behind this butt-hurt turd?
Is Vindman the fat ass snitch?
Colonel Vindman reminds me of Newman, from Seinfeld, except for the charisma....
This is why the founders of this country never wanted a powerful standing army. Could you imagine The Green Mountain Boys of Vermont or Daniel Morgans Virginia militia answering to stunted misfits like this?
Didn’t know Venkman was in the service!
That weasel sure is.
Ok, so block them
That overweight prick who altered a transcript of a Presidential call should have been court martialed and dismissed
Yep, he and Stantz and Spengler. Some Black guy too...
Vindman should have at a minimum given a dishonorable discharge. I would have preferred he was simply hanged. F’n traitor.

Female, lib, democrat, from Illinois......the worst of the worst kind there is. Insane...nasty.
easy. try and hang Vindman and his brother.
Did Vindman serve as a Battalion Commander?
Hard to make Colonel without having a successful battalion command in the records.
“....Could you imagine The Green Mountain Boys of Vermont or Daniel Morgans Virginia militia answering to stunted misfits like this?...”
They’d have just shot em and been done with it.
Yep, that works for me.
