The Army rejects President Trump's nudging and won't investigate Lt. Col. Vindman over impeachment testimony

Despite President Trump's nudging, the Army will not investigate Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman regarding his testimony to impeachment investigators, a top leader in the service said Friday.

"There's no investigation into him," Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy said at a National Press Club luncheon Friday, according to Politico.

Vindman drew ire from the president after he raised concerns about President Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, testifying that he didn't think it was "proper" for Trump to "demand that a foreign government investigate" former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine.

Following Vindman's ousting, Trump said that he imagined the military would "take a look" at the "horrible things" Vindman told House investigators and decide if he deserved disciplinary action.

Now it appears they have chosen no further action action against Vindman.
