Trump: Military Should Consider Vindman Discipline

(C-SPAN)

By    |   Tuesday, 11 February 2020 06:08 PM EST

President Donald Trump on Tuesday suggested the military should consider more action against Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who gave damaging testimony in Trump's House impeachment hearing, The Hill reported.

He was escorted from his White House office Friday and is to be transferred to another military job, as is his twin brother, who also worked in the White House but had no connection to the testimony.

"We sent him on his way to a much different location, and the military can handle him any way he wants," Trump told reporters during an Oval Office press availability.

When he was asked whether the Pentagon should take more action against Vindman, Trump said it that would be "up to the military."

He added, "But if you look at what happened, they're going to certainly, I would imagine, take a look at that."

"Gen. Milley has him now. I congratulate Gen. Milley. He can have him," Trump said, referring to Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.

Trump removed Vindman the same day he fired Amb. Gordon Sondland, his ambassador the the European Union, who had testified Trump's request for an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden from the Ukrainian president was a "quid pro quo" for military aid to be released by the United States.

Vindman also testified about the phone call, for which he helped work on the transcript.

"I obviously wasn't happy with the job he did," Trump said Tuesday of Vindman. "What was said on the call was totally appropriate. I call it a perfect call, I always will call it a perfect call."
