10. Actually, he can't fire most federal employees without cause

Most career civil service bureaucrats can only be fired for cause and have the right to appeal removals, demotions, and suspensions to the Merit Systems Protection Board. I'm an attorney at a firm that represents a lot of federal employees, and clients who are facing removal or other action receive a letter that lays out in details the reason for the action. They get the chance to submit a written and oral reply, and if the removal is upheld they can appeal to the MSPB, although the MSPB currently has no quorum so its ability to reinstate anyone is on hold.

I don't believe the Vindmans have MSPB rights because they are active duty military, and the MSPB is for civilians. I don't know much about how it works in the military - I believe you can appeal to upgrade a dishonorable discharge to an honorable discharge, but I don't know if there is a process to contest the discharge itself.
