President explains the Vindman removal – Update

President Trump is under attack for firing Lt. Col. Vindman and his brother in what Democrats insist is revenge over their testimony.

Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about “Lt. Col.” Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was.

Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my “perfect” calls incorrectly, & was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information.

In other words, “OUT”.

We don’t know why his brother was removed or why Gordon Sondland was shown the door, but we can guess. His brother likely leaked and Sondland is just nuts.

We think it’s a good start.

SATURDAY UPDATE

The unreliable NY Times reported that Alexander Vindman’s lawyer, David Pressman said the President’s remarks are “obviously false” and Mr. Trump was engaged in a “campaign of intimidation.” He added that the President’s statements “conflict with a clear personnel record and the entirety of the impeachment record.”

He did not explain how they were “obviously false.”

Tim Morrison, who supervised LTC Alexander Vindman at the National Security Council for just three months, told the House that he had concerns about Colonel Vindman’s judgment and believed he did not always adhere to the chain of command. But when Mr. Morrison said he had originally heard such concerns from his predecessor, Fiona Hill, she disputed his account.

Alexander Vindman certainly didn’t follow the chain of command in this ‘whistleblower’ case involving the President. Vindman is “obviously” a leaker, certainly no whistleblower.

According to the Times, three Republican senators tried to convince the President to not remove Gordon Sondland from his post since he was talking about leaving. The senators were Susan Collins (ME), Thom Tillis (NC) who received donations from Sondland along with other Republicans, Martha McSally (AZ), and Ron Johnson (WI). “They were concerned it would look bad for Mr. Trump,” the Times wrote.

According to the Times, “The senators did not express the same concern about Colonel Vindman, who is viewed less sympathetically by the President’s allies. Republicans considered some of Colonel Vindman’s comments during his testimony overtly political, and in any case, believed it was untenable for him to remain on the staff of a president with whom he broke so publicly.”

The Vindman’s are not fired. They are returning to their original posts.

Vindman reminds me of a mixture on 99% Milton from Office space. And 1% ego of Col. Jessup In A few Good Men. HAHA address me as Colonel.

Everyone in the White House works at the “Pleasure of the President” The President can dismiss you for wearing the wrong color tie. Or no reason like what obozo did when his regime took over.

The president should fire everyone who testified in the Schiff show.

This LTC committed sedation. He went around his chain of command and directly acted against his Commander-in-Chief. He should be dismissed from the Army, and his commission revoked. I read somewhere Yesterday that he was scheduled to attend the War College in the fall. We do not need this type of Officer in my Army!

“Lt. Col.” is an Air Force abbreviation. The Army, to which Vindman belongs, uses “LTC.”
