Chuck Schumer finally crossed the line.
Democrats had not been handling their defeat on impeachment well, but Schumer descended into an entirely new level of madness.
And now Chuck Schumer hit the military with this ultimatum. Now Trump is red with rage.
President Trump has every right to a staff that serves him loyally and works to implement his agenda.
One of the by-products of the impeachment witch hunt was the startling realization that bureaucrats embedded in the National Security Council, State Department and the Pentagon pledged their loyalty to the “interagency process” and not the President of the United States and the Constitution.
The poster child for this seditious rogues gallery of power-mad technocrats was National Security Council staffer Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman.
Lt. Colonel Vindman listened in on the July 25 call between Donald Trump and the Ukrainian President and breached the chain of command by reporting his “concern” about its contents to his twin brother who was a national security council lawyer instead of his immediate supervisor.
Vindman’s testimony about the call and his reaction matched the description of an account given described in alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella’s phony complaint that claimed national security professionals were uneasy with how President Trump conducted the phone call.
Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn blasted Vindman as the whistleblower’s “handler.”
Not only did Vindman rat out the President to a Deep State snitch, but Vindman’s testimony also made it abundantly clear that Vindman thought he ran American policy with regards to Ukraine and that he strongly objected to Donald Trump’s foreign policy.
After the Senate exonerated the President from the impeachment witch hunt, the President took a sensible course of action and removed a staffer that publicly betrayed the President and fought against the Commander-in-Chief’s foreign policy.
Security escorted Vindman out of the White House and Vindman was not fired, but returned to the Defense Department who had loaned him out to the National Security Council in the first place.
President Trump defended the decision on social media.
“Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about ‘Lt. Col.’ Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was. Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my ‘perfect’ calls incorrectly, & was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information. In other words, ‘OUT’,” the President tweeted.
That wasn’t good enough for Chuck Schumer.
Schumer fired off a letter to all 74 Agency Inspectors General – including Defense Department Inspector General Glenn Fine – insisting they investigate the Trump administration for retaliating against whistleblowers.
“Not only is retaliation against LTC Vindman, the anonymous whistleblower [who triggered the impeachment proceedings,] and others like them shameful, it is also illegal. … All federal employees have the legal right to make protected disclosures to Congress and Inspectors General anonymously and free from reprisals,” Schumer wrote.
“Without the courage of whistleblowers and the role of Inspectors General, the American people may never have known how the President abused his power in the Ukraine scandal. It is incumbent on you that whistleblowers … are protected for doing what we hope and expect those who serve our country will do when called: tell the truth,” Schumer’s letter continued.
What Schumer really wants is for the Defense Department and other agencies to look the other way as rogue Deep State sleeper cell agents carry on their stealth campaign of leaks to undermine President Trump.
