Democratic senator to halt military confirmations unless Esper promotes Vindman

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) announced Thursday that she is blocking the Senate confirmation of 1,123 US Armed Forces promotions until Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirms he will not block the promotion of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in President Trump’s impeachment inquiry. Trump had removed Vindman from his position with the National Security Council after his testimony.
