When Lt. Col. Scheller posted his video calling out leadership, he knew he would get into trouble.
I doubt, however, anyone thought it would lead to a court-martial.
And, if it did, most of us probably thought he would fight it tooth-and-nail.
Now, after criticizing leadership and demanding accountability for the Afghanistan withdrawal, Scheller is being court-martialed.
Shockingly, he will not fight, with his attorney confirming to CBS News that Scheller would be pleading guilty.
They threw the kitchen sink at Scheller, so it is unclear how many of the charges he will plead guilty to, as the details are reportedly still being finalized on his plea.
I would suspect that he will not face a dishonorable discharge as part of his plea, or at least I hope that is the case.
At worst, he should get a general discharge under honorable conditions.
While I understand entirely that Scheller undermined the chain of command with his video, the problem with his treatment is that Lt. Col. Vindman did something comparable and was hailed as a national hero and put up for a promotion.
I guess it just shows you that when you push the Democrat narrative, you get rewarded.
When you stand up for what is right and demand answers, you have your entire career taken away from you.
