The vindictive nature of state leaders is well known to me. I am the victim of a vindictive leader and that experience has fashioned by enlightened life. Therefore, I encourage those who sit in the seats of power to do whatever is necessary to protect the lives, welfare and well being of victims of political vindictiveness.
Media reports here in my country - the United States (US), have confirmed that Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified before the House of Representatives impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump, was today escorted from the White House - fired, so was his twin brother, the New York Times reported.
In my opinion, a clear reprisal and vindictiveness by Trump against those who fail to toe the line of his version of the American Republic. There will be other victims.
Yet, again, Democrats holding to the tradition of the rule of law and the decorum that has traditionally held this nation great and as a model to others, appear impotent to reining in a president, who continues to dictatorize the Republic fresh off his Senate acquittal of high crimes and misdemeanors.
Vindictiveness is a poison that threatens the core of democracy and the basic tenets of the US Constitution. Thus it demands a fight back from people - all the people, who care about the founding principles of our Republic.
