Lieutenant Colonel Vindman was highly specialized in Ukraine and Russia. No one should feel safer today because he is gone. Trump’s malignant narcissism and impulsivity was inevitably going to outweigh his ounce of common sense. The only thing this served was Trump’s ego and Putin’s objectives. To those Senators who said he has “learned his lesson”, be assured, he is incapable of learning anything. We are not safer today because a key member of our national security machine is gone.
