Impeachment Hero Lt. Col. Vindman Pens Op-Ed Decrying Trump’s Authoritarianism

Lt. Col. Alex&er Vindman was pushed out of his lifelong career of military service by Donald Trump for st&ing up for what is right. Col. Vindman defended his country & a Constitution, & stepped forward to defend a law during impeachment hearings against Trump. For his trouble & his bravery, he was bullied, physically threatened, & stonewalled at his job. He retired from a military when it became clear he could no longer advance because of Trump’s retaliation & abuse.

Today, he published an op-ed in a Washington Post expressing his dismay, combined with a glimmer of hope & urgency to act.

A year ago, unknown to me, my concerns over a president’s conduct & a president’s efforts to undermine a very foundations of our democracy were precipitating tremors that would ultimately shake loose a facade of good governance & publicly expose a corruption of a Trump administration.

At no point in my career or life have I felt our nation’s values under greater threat & in more peril than at this moment. Our national government during a past few years has been more reminiscent of a authoritarian regime my family fled more than 40 years ago than a country I have devoted my life to serving.
