Army Announces They Will Not Investigate Lt. Col Alexander Vindman…

President Trump mentioned the likelihood the military would take a look at the conduct of Lt. Col Alexander Vindman in the wake of his leaking classified information to construct a fraudulent whistle-blower complaint with CIA ally Eric Ciaramella.

Today Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy said Vindman will not be investigated for his role in breaching national security protocol, fabricating claims and breaking chain of command.

WASHINGTON DC – The Army will not investigate Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the former National Security Council staffer who testified in the president’s impeachment investigation, the service’s top civilian said Friday.

Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy made the announcement at an event just days after President Donald Trump said he imagined the military would “take a look at” whether Vindman should face disciplinary action for the “horrible things” he told House investigators about the president’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last July.

When we consider that Lt. Col. Vindman was carrying out what he believed to be his role; and when you overlay his military purpose; and when we accept Vindman was assisting CIA agent Eric Ciaramella in constructing his dossier to remove President Trump; and when we stand back and look at the aggregate interests involved; and when we consider there was ZERO push-back from the ranks of military leadership, specifically the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and when you accept Vindman was simply allowed to return to his post inside the White House – where he remains today; well, the alarming aspect increases in direct proportion to the definition of the word: “coup”.

Beyond the debate about the optics of the “coup“, within the testimony of Lt. Col Vindman, the NSC witness readily admits to understanding the officially established policy of the President of The United States (an agreement between President Trump and President Zelenskyy), and stunningly admits that two weeks later he was giving countermanding instructions to his Ukrainian counterpart to ignore President Trump’s policies.

The coup against President Donald Trump went from soft, to hard. Consider…

The testimony from Lt. Col. Vindman is available here. [SCRIBD pdf below]

Borrowing from Roscoe B Davis, here are some highlights:

Representative John Ratcliffe begins deconstructing Lt. Col Vindman, while his arrogant attorneys begin trying to interfere with the questioning.

This next section is very interesting, and very important.

Congressman John Ratcliffe begins questioning Vindman from the perspective of an Article 92 violation {READ IT}, coupled with an Article 88 violation {READ IT}. President Trump, is Lt. Col Vindman’s superior. President Trump sets the foreign policy.

Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct. [Article 88, UCMJ]

Two weeks after President Trump has established an agreement with Ukraine President Zelenskyy, and established the policy direction therein, Lt. Col. Vindman is now giving contrary instructions to the Ukranian government. Vindman’s lawyer recognizes where the questioning is going and goes absolutely bananas:

    Vindman is a puke. The impeachment coup is chock-full-o’ pukes. However, The Commander in Chief decided not to take summary judgement on Vindman and handed him over to the millstones of the Army Gods of Justice. Apparently, the Army has looked at the Puke and can find neither rhyme nor reason to charge Vindman with violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. An Article 134 for “various offenses that prejudice the good order and discipline or bring discredit upon the armed forces” have not been pinned to or even strictly implied on Vindman.

    He was against Trump’s use of words and he testified against Trump concerning his (Vindman’s) opinion of proper Presidential conduct.

    Velvet Revolutions are full of creeps and oozing discord. Vindman may well be (or highly probably) a Democrat coup sympathizer. But if he is put on trial for what the prosecutors reasonably suspect, is the evidence against Vindman strong enough to convict him beyond a reasonable doubt? No.

    The Trump appointed Secretary of the Army can not find enough probable cause to investigate Vindman in search of such violation. So, Mr. President, the ball is back in your court.

    Charles Dickens created perfectly styled villains such as Fagan, Uriah Heep and Bill Sykes. But his real genius was in “Jarndyce v. Jarndyce” played out to near total frustration in Bleak House where the villainy is within the system: “The one great principle of the English law is, to make business for itself. There is no other principle distinctly, certainly, and consistently maintained through all its narrow turnings. Viewed by this light it becomes a coherent scheme, and not the monstrous maze the laity are apt to think it. Let them but once clearly perceive that its grand principle is to make business for itself at their expense, and surely they will cease to grumble.”

    We watched the Jabborwocky charges against Trump in the recent impeachment charade and wondered how simple reason had eluded that impeachers. Vindman is likely a political player, but as such, he is and will be politically defended. The “cause” against him may be so weak in fact and statute that pursing him is a zero sum game.

      Remember, the Revolutionary War was an English civil war. Once it started, the Continental Army had a very bad go of it. Looked quite dire. People prayed, had faith, did their best and refused to give up. As it turned out, all those losses, intercepted communiques, betrayals, etc. were like dominoes that when hitting a block, fell in another direction. That direction led to victory. Think of these setbacks as a guide to direct us to where we concentrate our energy and prayers next. It’s the map to victory.

      Today has been disappointing, but in the fullness of the overall view, these losses are small skirmishes that determine nothing. The wrongdoers only think they’ve gotten away with their crimes. Justice is always served. Natural Law ensures it.

      I do trust the Plan. God’s Plan. He doesn’t lose. Stay the course…keep praying and trusting in the One through whom all things are possible.

          Sometimes, I have to remind myself that this is a war and it’s really a spiritual war. I think one of DJT’s most prescient statements is when he said “they” really hate us; he’s just in the way. One step further into that revelation is that it’s not really us they hate, though they do. We’re insignificant to them, as people, but representative of what they hate and must destroy.

          Whether they realize it or acknowledge it, it’s God they work to take down, so they can rebuild the world in their own image, where they assume His place and authority. What most of them don’t grasp or believe for a second is that they too, are only representatives of God’s adversary and are even more insignificant and disposable than they think we are. Their master is the father of lies, the author of “by any means necessary.” They are merely means, blinded by their own base lusts and consumed with hate for anyone or anything that doesn’t worship them (through the disguise of government.) 

          An independent people who rely on God’s Grace and Guidance cannot be owned or ruled over by the selfish and perverse whims of man. Ultimately, He’s the One in the way.

          You’re right. He does want us to seek Him, to trust Him and His Plan and to stand firm on The Rock for what is true and good. “Fear not, for I am with you, even until the end of the world.” God really does have this. We just need to seek to align ourselves with His Will, to pray for it and to expect it, no matter what happens. It’s tough, sometimes, to see through the chaff, but I think that’s when our faith is strengthened.

      Sheesh. I would at least call today a draw.

      Vindman is nothing and we knew he would skate. It was fairly obvious that the long delay in dealing with McCabe meant they were not going to pursue “lack of candor”. You think getting fired was not a penalty? Do we want him serving probation for 6 months or getting off from a DC jury? Or do we want him indicted for the coup and serving time?

      Don’t despair, be assured that Barr/Durham will be bringing RICO indictments in the next few months.

        My guess (for what it is worth) is that Vindman is not in line for promotion, and is due to retire from the army in the near future, and “they” are taking the path of least resistance. In other words, some may wish to prosecute him, some may be on his side, and they all want the problem to go away. Thus the system defaults to “let him go away quietly.”

Such an instrument is a standing army.

    Vindman’s excuse of going out of the chain of command was National Security Policy Memorandum 4 (NSPM-4) that returned the attendees to meetings to obama’s previous wayssss… Trump initially used Bush’s to minimize the role of the DNI and chaiman of joint chief of staff – however someone talked him into it in April 4 2017 returning the DNI and CJCS into the fold for vindman to report to out of the chain of command

    CJCS was Dunford; DNI was Coats

    Dunford background (PEtraues coup and afghan war fraud):

    On October 10, 2012, Dunford was nominated by President Obama to lead U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan.[17] After an investigation into inappropriate communications from the commander in Afghanistan, General John R. Allen, was opened, Secretary Panetta requested that Dunford’s nomination be acted on promptly.[18] Dunford assumed command of the International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces Afghanistan (USFOR-A) from Allen,[2] who had since been cleared in the Pentagon’s investigation involving his e-mails in the Petraeus scandal, on February 10, 2013.[19]

    On June 5, 2014, Dunford was nominated by President Obama to be the 36th Commandant of the Marine Corps. His nomination was confirmed by the Senate on July 23, 2014, and he became Commandant on October 17, 2014.[20] On January 23, 2015, Dunford released the 36th Commandant’s Planning Guidance.[21]

    Did Vindman consider the President’s remarks to be “Anti-Ukrainian propaganda?”

    Vindman committed several violations of the UCMJ; violation of a direct order given by a superior officer in the US military, undermining the official policies of the USA, the unauthorized release of classified material and bypassing the established chain of command. He has also violated several civil criminal laws. Now, if he committed these acts in a war zone, he would be sitting in the brig waiting to stand before a general court marshal.

    Now, it an be understood why the military is not going to press any charges against Vindman. They do not want to antagonize members of the Congress, particularly liberal Democrat members. Most likely, Vindman will simply be passed over for promotion and forced to resign his commission. This can be justified based upon his last evaluation, which was devastatingly negative. They hope that this will just all go away.

      Because if it hasn’t, the Posse Comitatus Act would not bar the JAG from prosecuting current and former bureaucrats for fraud against the United States and related crimes.

        Of course the military has been compromised. But, the upper level of the command structure of the US Military is all political. There are two types pf military politicians. Those who are looking at retirement and want to move into cushy civilian jobs and those who are still service oriented and play politics to protect the service and their position in it.

        Now, what Vindman did is the cardinal sin of the US military. He not only disregarded the order of a superior officer, the CINC, but he actively worked to undermine that order. It is not only contrary to good order, but undermines the basic rule of military service, that subordinates obey the orders of their superiors, in the military, This is a career ending action.

        Going to the war college is irrelevant, in this case. While completion of the War College is a must for promotion to general officer, Vindman is only a light bird and has a full step before he is even eligible for general officer status. In this case, this keeps Vindman away from sensitive assignments as well from any command assignments, for which he is eligible. Vindman is a darling of the Democrats in Congress and making it look as though he is in danger of repercussions is not desirable. Remember, nothing is exactly what it appears in DC, except maybe Trump.

          Fair enough.

          Hypothetically speaking, let’s say you found jurisdictional grounds for the Judge Advocates General to prosecute all those responsible for the Russia collusion hoax. And let’s say you want to make sure your legal papers stay out of the hands of officers sympathetic to the deep state. Got any tips on how to avoid the military equivalent of a Christopher Wray or Rod Rosenstein putting their finger on the scale to protect the deep state?

          Put another way, got any suggestions on how to ensure the legal argument gets into the hands of a JAG officer guided by this?

          “For justice exists only between men whose mutual relations are governed by law; … This is why we do not allow a man to rule, but rational principle, because a man behaves thus in his own interests and becomes a tyrant. The magistrate on the other hand is the guardian of justice, and, if of justice, then of equality also.” — Aristotle.

          The honor and discipline of the U.S. Military we trust every second of every day with protecting us from nuclear war is all that remains standing between the perfidious deep state and its establishment of an absolute tyranny over the American people. The U.S. Military is our only remaining hope of restoring rule of law by punishing the deep state for their betrayal.

    Unfortunately, and even though President Trump has managed many Judicial placements, what’s becoming rapidly apparent is the ability of the former, ’preezy of the united steezy’ to entrench thousands and thousands of his demonic cockroaches into places of leadership and influence that one man fighting the swamp while living amongst them cannot possibly eradicate by himself.

    Unfortunately the scoreboard reads like this.

    ovomit – 1000
    PDJT – o


    I hope he burns it to the ground in his 2nd term. It’s his and our only chance for a reset.

    Alexander Vindman – Why Diaspora Ukrainians are Driving Sedition

    “Alexander Vindman’s ties to Ukraine should have made him disclose a few large conflicts of interest before being assigned in the capacity he has.

    — Vindman had business interests in Ukraine which would suffer if the relationship between both countries was jeopardized.
    — Was it Vindman’s American patriotism or Diaspora nationalism that led him to share the Oval Office transcript with Ukraine’s president?”
