Showtalk said...So including a lot of options doesn’t necessarily give useful results.

  I thought you were just schooling me on how to give more options for a better poll?

Seen the wide support in this poll for not buying Bolton" s book..

 I tried to get across the point that by doing the considered honorable thing of testifying  was to be a foolish thing to do during a Trump presidency. And Bolton's strategy was to estimate how vindictive the president would be if he testified through accepted channels.

So now this happens and proves my argument...

 <What has Lt Col Vindman's lawyer said?

A statement said he had retired after 21 years of military service because his future would be "forever limited".

His representative, David Pressman, said Lt Col Vindman had spoken publicly only once on the matter - under subpoena from Congress.

He said: "LTC Vindman did what the law compelled him to do; and for that he was bullied by the president and his proxies.

Mr Pressman added that he had "put the interests of his country ahead of his own. "LTC Vindman's patriotism has cost him his career," he said.>

What did Vindman expect would happen?  Most people knew he was done the minute he publicly testified. He made the choice to lose his career.

So you think what Trump and his people did is okay??? And all people that testify to abuse of power should be expected to be unfairly punished?

Why do you always jump to such extreme conclusions when I say anything?  He quit and took retirement. He was not dishonorably discharged.  I never said what you said I said. So now he gets retirement pay and can start another career.  He will be financially ahead by leaving.
