After his acquittal from impeachment charges, President Donald Trump is targeting the impeachment witnesses. On Tuesday, President Trump said the military might consider taking disciplinary action against Lt. Col Alexander Vindman. It is the perfect time to remember that Vindman, who was a National Security Council officer, was sacked from the White House after the damaging testimony during the impeachment hearings in the Senate. Vindman and his twin brother Yevgeny were called on Friday, even though Yevgeny was not a witness in President’s impeachment hearings. Earlier, Trump said he was “unhappy” about the brothers.
Speaking to the reporters, Trump said - “the military can handle Vindman. That’s going to be up to the military, we will have to see, but if you look at what happened, they are going to certainly, I’d imagine taking a look at that.” Without giving any examples or evidence, Trump criticized Vindman for reporting “very inaccurate things” regarding the call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “When I look back, it turned out that what Vindman reported was very different. And also, he did a lot of bad things, said horrible things, avoided the chain of command, leaked events. So, we sent him on his way to a different location, and the military will handle him any way they wish.”
However, Vindman’s lawyer David Pressman called out that his sacking was political retribution for his role in the impeachment inquiry. “The truth has cost Vindman his job, career, and his privacy,” said Pressman. On the other hand, the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway hinted that more officials could be forced out of their existing roles. She also confirmed that Vindman brothers have been relocated and will be sent to Senior Service College, where he will learn how to take on greater responsibility and leadership.
