Remember Alexander Vindman? He was one of the supposedly reliable witnesses called by the House Democrats to prove Trump deserved to be impeached.
He just lost his job and was escorted off the White House premises.
What a shame.
NBC News reports:
Trump fires key impeachment witnesses Sondland, Lt. Col. Vindman in purge
President Donald Trump delivered payback Friday to two key witnesses who testified in the House impeachment inquiry, firing Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, and removing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from his White House job.
Both officials provided critical information about Trump during public hearings, with Sondland saying the president sought a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine’s leader and Vindman criticizing Trump’s conduct during a July 25th phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy as “improper.”
The moves came hours after Trump was asked about his press secretary’s comments that his opponents should pay a price. “Well, you’ll see,” the president told reporters…
Vindman’s twin, Yevgeny Vindman, was also escorted from the White House on Friday, a source familiar with the matter confirmed to NBC News. He was working as a senior lawyer and ethics official for the NSC and did not testify in the impeachment inquiry. The New York Times first reported that Vindman’s brother, who’s also an Army lieutenant colonel, was fired and removed at the same time.
Vindman is supposedly headed to the Army War College. We’ll see how long that lasts.
Vindman is being reassigned to the War College. @realDonaldTrump should squash that immediately and send him to a career killer post.
This guy should not be able to teach insubordination to subordinates.

Look who’s sticking up for him.
Lieutenant Colonel Vindman has proven to be an American patriot. His firing was a clear and brazen act of retaliation that showcases the President’s fear of the truth — and the vindictiveness which led Republican Senators to be accomplices to President Trump’s cover-up.
