A senior military officer has accused Air Force Gen. John Hyten, who's tapped to be the next Joint Chiefs of Staff vice chairman, of subjecting her to a series of unwanted sexual advances, AP reported Wednesday. She alleges he tried to derail her career when she rebuffed him.

Why it matters: Defense One first reported that while the Pentagon cleared Hyten of the allegations, senators are still looking into the matter, and he may face questions on the claims during his Senate confirmation process.

The big picture: The woman alleged to AP that Hyten kissed, hugged and rubbed up against her when she was one of his aides in 2017. .....................................

Article also says that a Navy Investigation found no evidence. But it certainly needs a second look by outsider journalists.

2. So he meets Trump's first requirement.

Is he also fellatiously obsequious? If so, he's a slam dunk.

5. I see what you did there

"fellatiously obsequious"

Trump could never pronounce that.

4. I'm beginning to think ...................

How does he find all these people? Private investigatory network over the last 25 years? Did Vlad contribute?

And WHY would he choose these people?

Because he can control them. He has something on them. They won't waver in loyalty lest they be exposed.

This seems a pattern now. It can't be coincidence. It can't be random. He doesn't enjoy hanging out with these people. So there is another reason.

wha'cha think?

8. I think you nailed it

Hire the people who have something to hide. Trump is a natural at being a dictator. It seems to come so easily to him.

9. Well, he does surround himself with "the best people", y'know

The best grabbers.
The best pedophiles.
The best entitled males...

10. Kissing hugging and rubbing leaves no evidence

But his refusal to promote her DOES.

Good for her. Not going to be fun. Brave woman. I hope this means she'll be safe in her career.

11. I believe I read she's made her complaint against several other officers before

so there is the matter of her credibility in this case.
