Lt. Col Vindman resigns after citing Trump bullyingThe retirement of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key figure in the impeachment of President Donald Trump, becomes official on Saturday.

Vindman submitted his retirement request July 7, one day after his promotion to colonel had been approved by the Pentagon, according to an Army document. His request was approved for retirement effective Aug. 1.

In a statement July 8, Vindman cited "bullying, intimidation and retaliation" from the White House for his decision to retire, according to a statement from his lawyer David Pressman.

Because he did not receive an assignment as a colonel, he will retire at the lower rank of lieutenant colonel, according to the Army.

An Iraq war veteran and Purple Heart recipient, Vindman had seen his promotion to colonel delayed this summer, a hold-up that some viewed as retaliation for his impeachment testimony.

TVNL Comment: Best of luck, Lt. Col. Vindman.  You are an American hero
