    ...and it is also morally and ethically wrong. LtCol Vindman was doing his duty. Trump has not.

    Former White House aide Alexander Vindman, a key figure in the impeachment of President Donald Trump, said on Wednesday he was retiring from the Army after suffering what his attorney described as campaign of "bullying, intimidation, and retaliation" by the president.

    Vindman, an Army lieutenant colonel who had been due for a promotion, provided some of the most damaging testimony during an investigation by the U.S. House of Representatives into Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

    Vindman confirmed to Reuters his decision to retire instead of becoming a colonel and wrote on Twitter that he and his family "look forward to the next chapter of our lives."

    "After more than 21 years of military service, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman is retiring today after it has been made clear that his future within the institution he has dutifully served will forever be limited," according to a statement from his attorney.

    Vindman, then the White House National Security Council's top Ukraine expert, testified that Trump's request for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter during a July phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was improper.

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    From the Washington Post article on the same subject:-Trump has no patriotism at all.

    “Through a campaign of bullying, intimidation, and retaliation, the president of the United States attempted to force LTC Vindman to choose: Between adhering to the law or pleasing a President. Between honoring his oath or protecting his career. Between protecting his promotion or the promotion of his fellow soldiers,” Pressman said. “LTC Vindman’s patriotism has cost him his career.”
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
