My routine response to this stuff….
Are you surprised ?
Being truthful with ‘the Donald’ costs one their job…..
You ARE ‘loyal’ to him… Not to America and the Law….
Even if his actions make you have to decide what’s ‘right’
We HAVE seen this all during Trump’s prime in office…
The White House on Friday fired Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, whose testimony in the House impeachment hearings infuriated President Trump and his allies, escorting him out of the complex just days after the Senate trial ended in acquittal, his lawyer said.
“There is no question in the mind of any American why this man’s job is over, why this country now has one less soldier serving it at the White House,” David Pressman, the lawyer, said in a statement. “Lt. Col. Vindman was asked to leave for telling the truth. His honor, his commitment to right, frightened the powerful.”
Colonel Vindman’s twin brother, Yevgeny Vindman, also an Army lieutenant colonel who worked at the White House, was fired as well and escorted out at the same time, according to two people briefed on the developments.
The dismissal was foreshadowed earlier in the day when Mr. Trump essentially confirmed to reporters before leaving on a trip to North Carolina that Colonel Alexander Vindman would be pushed out. “Well, I’m not happy with him,” the president said of Colonel Vindman. “You think I’m supposed to be happy with him? I’m not.”
The president then reposted a Twitter message from a supporter advocating the colonel’s dismissal: “Vindman’s behavior is a scandal. He should be removed from the @RealDonaldTrump White House ASAP to protect our foreign policy from his machinations.”
Here’s more of the growing list of government employees who have left the White House or State Dept. due to their testimony in the Ukraine case that leaves Donald Trump with an impeachment in the history books….
Fall out from other Trump actions has led to FBI and other Defense and State Dept. people leaving their jobs…
