Lt. Col. Vindman felt it necessary to tell his father this on national tv, because Trump is attacking him and putting his life in danger.  This is a man who has a Purple Heart for battle wounds for the US.  The Army is prepared to move him and his family to a secure location because the Commander in Chief has targeted him.  What country is this?

The accused is intimidating a witness.  Isn’t that illegal?  Do you get the feeling Trump is daring the GOP to convict him?  Or is he acting like the fix is in?  Or is he just an asshole?

quote from this Atlantic article:

“Even the German Jews didn’t seem to realize the danger they were facing. It’s interesting to see that the American journalists were sometimes the first ones to warn them about it.”

Yep, the fix is in, but no one is surprised since Republicans go by the blind-faith mantra of “Nothing we do is illegal.”
