    Lt. Col. Vindman does shock and awwws. No seasoned soldier should be that cute in their uniform. He's all-round cute even when he claps back at disrespectful bitch Nunes.

  • majorgeeek

    Vindman is a liar - he chose to speak to Schiff even before he reported to his boss so all we can assume he was acting on instructions from the Democrats - can't really understand how weasels like him get to high positions in the military?

  • minnybri

    So much respect for Lt. Col. Vindman. He knew exactly what sort of room he was walking into, and he came calm, confident, and fully prepared to face it.

    Oh the naive people there, military thinks they are fighting "the good fight" (like there is such a thing, definitely not when Exxon and Halliburton make most profits), witnessing that in the US of A truth rules, and an innocent man has nothing to fear.. Soo, why then is Trump still a president and your jails full of innocent and people with petty crimes? Like nowhere near treason levels. Might be your wars on concepts like "terror" or drugs (mostly made by BigPharma today), so why not a war against reason? Seems like since 2016 you've been in that war.. before that against self-awareness. You know, when Obama was there and you were doing only good. Oh, how I envy that naivete! "I speak the truth, so in USA I have nothing to fear." lol

    The snide comment from the Republican Representative regarding Lt. Colonel Vindman wearing his dress uniform at the inquiry. Number one: An active duty military person is required to wear thier dress uniform at a formal meeting or formal hearing. The snide comment was intended purely to denigrate Lt. Col. Vindman. How do l have knowledge of this dress code requirement? Having proudly served as an enlisted man in the United States Navy, the United States Army, and in Vietnam, l know my military dress codes. The 'honorable member' was in a greater sense running down the Col.'s uniform. The honorable member revealed himself to be an asshole. Please excuse my reference.

    Lt co Vindman did not advise Ukraine about not interfering with American politics. He threatened them, they knew his background and his former handlers and that he represented a group of men who were more than just his position. He strong armed them not to start an investigation into corruption. He only told this story to get his version on the record in case it came out... He is a fix it man for the deep state....

    Vindman says he "defended" America...? Then Colbert applauds? The U.S. military hasn't fought a defensive war since 1812. They only attack, invade and occupy. The situation seems hopeless when the U.S. "left" gets teary-eyed over soldiers who "defended" America from Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam, etc. The murder of hundreds of civilians (with some torture and sexual humiliation tossed in) are BAD things.

    Here lies Idiot Gym Jordan's talking points. The hapless reporters fail to ask the obvious follow-up questions: 1. Gym: tRump didn't call Nancy an "imposter" like she did him! No, he accused her (and many other decent Americans) of treason. 2. Gym: The facts are on our side--there was no quid pro quo because Eukraine never announced the investigations! Because FA's criminal Extortion and Bribery scheme got caught by the Whistleblower and Congress before it could be executed. It's like saying Attempted Murder is not a crime! 3. Gym (Chastened by Fiona Hill) now says they are pushing Ukrainian "interference" (instead of "meddling," a distinction without a difference) in our 2016 election (e.g., editorials and comments by Ukrainian politicians criticizing Trump). Hey Idiot, those editorials and opinions were openly expressed from known sources and totally different from surreptitious bots pushing fake conspiracy theories about Hillary, hacking the DNC server, disseminating stolen emails through WikiLeaks and anti-Hillary political activity conducted inside our own borders by Russian agents! (Read the indictment of the Russians, including attempts to monkey around with our voter & ballot info in many states.) 4. Gym: The Steele Dossier was the biggest political crime perpetrated against Trump! Hey Dummy, NONE of that stuff came out before the election. And while we're at it, NO info was released by your imaginary Deep State before the election, either. The FBI's LEGITIMATE investigation into tRump's connections with Russia did not come out until AFTER the election. 5. Gym: Bob Mueller didn't find anything, either! Hey, lying ball sack; Mueller found that: tRump invited and welcomed Russian interference into our election, he lied about countless contacts his campaign had with the Russians and about the Moscow Trump Tower deal, and he repeatedly covered up and obstructed Mueller's investigation.

    Colbert is so pathetically jealous of Mr Trump he cant stop thinking about him. Colberts ratings have gotten worse than any late show ever. Bitches like him aren't entertaining, they are kinda sad really. No self esteem or morals. I can see why he wouldn't like Mr Trump, they are complete opposites, yet colbert cant just accept his position in life. The weak, yappy spineless type seem to fit in well with the left. Thats your calling stevie. A leftist bitch.
