The Corrupting Influence of Donald Trump

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, July 2, 2020

That it has become necessary to PROTECT a United States Military Service Member from retaliation by the President and/or his administration, is substantial evidence that corruption has occurred.

“Dad, I’m sitting here today, in the U.S. Capitol talking to our elected professionals — is proof that you made the right decision 40 years ago to leave the Soviet Union. Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth.”

“Our military is supposed to be the ultimate meritocracy.

This goes far beyond any single military officer, it is about protecting a merit-based system from political corruption and unlawful retaliation.”

Duckworth, a retired Army officer who lost both legs because of wounds sustained in the Iraq War, said she intends to block 1,123 promotions until Esper “confirms in writing that he did not, or will not, block the expected and deserved promotion” of Vindman to colonel.

The move by the Illinois Democrat raises the stakes amid reports that the White House could nix Vindman’s promotion from a list of officers set to move up the ranks.
