[Ed. – Trump said he wasn’t happy with Vindman in a press availability a few hours ago. Speculation has been rampant that Vindman would be out of the NSC shortly, and headed back to a DOD job for now.]
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the Ukraine expert at the National Security Council who became a star witness in the House impeachment hearings on President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, was escorted out of the White House on Friday, his lawyer said, adding Trump had “decided to exact revenge.”
The White House and National Security Council were not immediately available for comment.
Earlier on Friday, Trump was asked by a reporter whether Vindman would be leaving. “I’m not happy with him. You think I’m supposed to be happy with him? I’m not. They’ll make that decision. You’ll be hearing,” Trump said.
