“This is the country I have served and defended, that all of my brothers have served and here, right matters,” the lieutenant colonel told the House Intelligence Committee.

When you have a national security staffer standing up to the president of the United States over allegations of abuse of power, it shows the power of democracy.
But the testimonies also show democracy is vulnerable too.

Damn right, LTC Vindman … “here, right matters.” A big salute to you for standing up when others bent over. https://t.co/3zPQGg2yUU

"Here, right matters," brought tears to my eyes. My Dad, an immigrant who escaped death to come here & who also served and believed in & instilled in us precisely the same thing. Deeply thankful for those who are new enough to the US not to take what's great about it for granted.
