    Seems to me all we have done with whistle blower status is created an endless supply of political torpedoes.

    We have become so divided that we are slowly drowning ourselves in our own toilet and the whistleblowers/leakers are holding our heads in the water.

    How can leaking the contents of confidential presidential calls be considered a good thing? If you actually hear the president conspiring to commit a FELONY then I suppose it's ok. Up till that point I think all you are is a criminal leaker.

    Vindman disagreed with Trumps foreign policy and thus leaked confidential/top secret information to a third party. Both Vindman and the WB are traitors and leakers.. disagreeing is not grounds for anything.

    No crime... It was a disagreement on foreign policy as Vindman testified.

    No, it's a crime. Sorry kid, that's what abuse of power is.

    HUGE! Schiff Witness Vindham Testified that He "Thought" President's "Policy" Was Wrong So He Advised Ukrainians to Ignore the President

    Foregin policy is the presidents domain. Not some Lt Col flunkie. Defying the orders of the CIC is INSUBORDINATION and what he did was commit TREASON by subverting the presidents policies.
