Trump blasts dismissed Army officer at center of impeachment inquiry as insubordinate, dishonest

President Donald Trump on Saturday blasted an Army officer who played a key role in the impeachment inquiry against him as “insubordinate” and accused him of leaking information to the press, problems that warranted his firing on Friday.

Administration officials have not issued a formal statement on the dismissal of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman from his National Security Council. On Friday, military officials confirmed he had been reassigned to a new Army position.

Just hours before the move, Trump told reporters that he was “not happy” with Vindman but would leave the decision on his job up to NSC staffers. Vindman had been scheduled to rotate out of his White House post this summer.

But a day after the soldier’s dismissal, Trump took to social media to blast Vindman as an untrustworthy employee.
