President Trump went off on the fake news media for propping up Vindman after he was rightfully fired from the NatSec Council on Friday.
TRUMP: 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”.
Army Lt. Col Alexander Vindman was escorted off the White House grounds and dismissed from the National Security Council Friday afternoon.
His twin brother Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, who served as a lawyer on the NSC, was also fired and he left with Alex.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other Dems flipped out on Friday in response to the Trump Admin’s decision to chop Lt. Col Alex Vindman.
Vindman testified against President Trump during the House impeachment hearings. He showed up in full military uniform, drawing criticism from military officials and veterans.
Vindman was reportedly involved with Eric Ciaramella and Schiff aide Sean Misko to “take out” President Trump.
But the fake news media propped up the insubordinate leaker and liar Vindman as a “patriotic hero.”
The truth is Vindman was an intel community underling who plotted to remove Trump from office because he disagreed with the President’s foreign policy related to Ukraine.
Vindman has zero authority to dictate to President Trump how the US sets foreign policy, as Trump’s deputy counsel argued during the senate impeachment trial.
“The President cannot defy agencies within the executive branch,” Philbin argued. “Article 2 section 1 of the Constitution vests all of the executive power in a president of the United States — he alone is an entire branch of government — he sets policy for the executive branch.”
“It inverts the Constitution,” Philbin said of giving unelected bureaucrats power over foreign policy. “The sole power is vested to the President of the United States.”
Case closed. Good riddance, Vindman!
