Vindman has dual loyalty to the U.S. and the Ukraine...and the Urainians hate the Russians. He would have loved to see us in a war with Russia. Dirty traitor. And he has a clown face.

Vindman is an agent of a foreign power, Ukraine, who never should have been given a position affecting U.S. policy towards the Ukraine.

Further, as a military officer the plot he participated in to trigger the impeachment of the president, amounted to insubordination and mutiny to the military chain of command he was subject to. He should have been court-martialed, stripped of rank, and sent to Leavenworth. He is lucky he is a free man capable of shooting his mouth off.
