Trump has launched a season of getting even, lashing out at those who spoke out against him during the impeachment and Mueller investigations and openly demanding retribution.
Moreover, Trump's airstrike - which involved no civilian casualties at all - was effective.
The president said Vindman should've gone to his superiors, but instead "he went to Congress or he went to Schiff or he went to somebody". It also deterred further attacks on our embassy in Baghdad, which an Iranian-backed militia stormed late previous year.
Tensions with Iran escalated quickly in January after a US airstrike killed Qasem Soleimani in Iraq.
In the thick of the testimonies, Gordon Sondland, former US ambassador to the European Union, testified that there was a quid pro quo involved in the phone call.
Trump's Iran policy is succeeding precisely because he is willing to use military force. Tim Kaine of Virginia, asserts that Trump must win approval from Congress before engaging in further military action against Iran.
'When we stand up for the rule of law - in a world that hungers for more rule of law - and say 'this decision is fundamental, and we have rules that we are going to follow so we can make a good decision, ' that's a message of strength, " Kaine said Wednesday.
"First of all, that's very insubordinate, why wouldn't he go to his immediate - he went to Congress or he went to Schiff or he went to somebody", Trump said.

Trump's misappropriation of funds in defiance of Congress, for the second year in a row, is an egregious violation of constitutional limits on the presidency, which include giving Congress, not the executive branch, the authority to appropriate funds-the so-called "power of the purse".
And Democrats never cared about those powers, anyway. Asked whether she believed Obama "did not need authorization, initially, and still does not need any authorization from Congress to go in Libya", Pelosi said, "Yes".
Trump viewed the resolution as a personal affront and urged Republicans to reject it, saying it is an attempt by Democrats to "embarrass the Republican Party".
The White House clamped down on the distribution of those memos earlier in the Trump administration after information about the president's calls with other heads of state, including Mexico's, were leaked to the media, according to two people familiar with how the distribution became more limited.
The statement adds, "Protecting the national security of the United States could foreseeably require the President to respond to Iranian threats beyond direct attacks on the United States". However, President Trump has also said he would veto the measure and has lobbied against it.
