Trump Begins 'Purge': Vindman And Brother Escorted Out Of White House

UPDATE 12:50PM: LTC Vindman was escorted out of the White House a few minutes ago, MSNBC reports.

It wasn't just LTC Vindman. His twin brother was also fired and escorted out.

The vindictive tyranny of Donald Trump continues as it appears impeachment witness Alexander Vindman will be out at the White House by end of day Friday. Washington Post:

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman — a National Security Council aide who testified during House Democrats’ impeachment hearings — will be informed in the coming days, likely on Friday, by administration officials that he is being reassigned to a position at the Defense Department, taking a key figure from the investigation out of the White House, according to two people familiar with the move who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss personnel decisions.

Vindman had already informed senior officials at the NSC that he intended to take an early exit from his assignment and leave his post by the end of the month, according to people familiar with his decision, but Trump is eager to make a symbol of the Army officer soon after the Senate acquitted him of the impeachment charges approved by House Democrats.
