Trump’s revenge: Lt. Col. Vindman was just escorted out of White House

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was dismissed from the National Security Council and escorted out of the White House Friday afternoon.

During the Impeachment inquiry, Vindman reported “inappropriate” pressure on Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, saying that, “Without hesitation, I knew that I had to report this to the White House counsel.”

His dismissal is being attributed to the shrinking of the foreign policy bureaucracy and downsizing staff.

However, many see it for what it clearly is—retaliation. Trump demands loyalty from his aides and has previously dismissed many officials for things he considered to be a betrayal.

When asked about Vindman’s transition, all Trump said was, “Well, I’m not happy with him.”

The plan to dismiss Vindman is especially questionable, as the Washington Post says, Vindman was already planning to leave early, but it seems Trump wants to fire him before he can quit.

In fact, the White House seems to be “downsizing” anyone who testifies against Trump.
