Ambassador Sondland Gets The Axe Hours After Vindman Twins Escorted Out Of White House

Update (6:55 p.m.): Today’s Trump admin casualties continue to stack up, after it was reported that Ambassador Gordon Sondland was fired Friday afternoon.

Sondland testified in Trump’s impeachment inquiry that there was no quid pro quo when President Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens while withholding US military aid (unbeknownst to Zelensky at the time). Sondland later flipped his story, claiming that he told a top Ukrainian official that a meeting with President Trump may be contingent upon its new administration committing to investigations Trump wanted, according to the New York Times.

Anti-Trump impeachment witness Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and his twin brother have been fired and escorted out of the White House by security, according to his Alexander Vindman’s attorney.

Vindman, a Ukraine specialist who sat on the National Security Counsel who was accused of being coached by House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), was present on a July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky, when the US president asked that Ukraine investigate former VP Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as claims of pro-Clinton meddling in the 2016 US election.

He was also notably counseling Ukraine on how to counter President Trump’s foreign policy according to the New York Times, which led some to go as far as accuse him of being a double agent.

BREAKING: Vindman admits he leaked Trump’s call to an individual in the intel community. Schiff cuts him off and warns him to not out the whistleblower

The now-former White House employee, who admitted to violating the chain of command when he reported his concerns over the call, had been rumored to be on the chopping block for much of Friday.

“He followed orders, he obeyed his oath, and he served his country… And for that, the most powerful man in the world – buoyed by the silent, the pliable, and the complicit – has decided to exact revenge,” said his attorney, David Pressman.

    1. I wish they could hand the devious little little DNC snot and his twin booger at sunrise. They are a disgrace to the uniform.

    2. I’m with Dr. Barbara Embry about glad you identified the resemblance of Nadler to Vindman. My thought is that since liberals always start rumors and innuendos, here’s one:. are the Vindman boys really Nadler’s love children? But then who would be their mother? Pelosi? Just sayin’….

    3. Vindman should be court marshalled for bearing false witness against the commander in chief. At the very least he completely ignored the chain of command

  1. Looks like little by little the treasonous traitors (“shifty shiff’s lying puppets”) are going to be “canned”.
    I would rather see them in “cuffs” and lead to a jail cell to await their trial for sedition and treason.
    I hope this is just the beginning of the “swamp draining” and will continue.

    1. Don, you are absolutely right about LIEUTENANT COLONEL “use my title” Vindman. He needs a court martial. Everything he did was subversive, incorrect, disloyal, and treasonous. As with Andrew McCabe, his pension was the cost of his sedition. If it hits them in their “pension,” swamp people will either be more careful about getting caught, or they will tow the line.

  2. Good Riddance! Vindy needed to be Canned as He definitely is Not an Officer and a Gentleman. A Court Martial is the Next Step for this POS.

  3. Too freaking bad, libs. The Constitution doesn’t say you have to surround yourself with traitors. Good riddance to bad rubbish! He put himself before duty, country and honor.

  4. I am fine with getting Vindman out of White House- traitors and spies have no place in White House.We also need to get rid of so called non whistleblower.

  5. LTC Vindman is an immature, vindictive, peevish, little man who never understood his duties and responsibilities. He repeatedly broke the chain of command; disrespected his boss and superiors and when excluded from an international visit and high level policy decision making sessions by superiors vindictively reported what he heard in a call. Retire him!

  6. Vindman should be in hand cuffs and not allowed to receive any Military Retirement! He is a Traitor to our country! He has proven that he has no self respect. How could he possibly respect anyone else?

  7. I cannot believe Mr Trump did not replace and recall all of Obama’s appointees.
    Happy to see he is draining a portion of the swamp, about time.
    Vindman should be brought up on Military Charges and Court Marshalled.

    1. I truly believe that this was all part of Pres. Trump’s efforts to drain the swamp. If he had replaced all these people right after he took office, he could not have exposed so many swamp creatures. I have questioned the President’s motives at times in the past, but no more! Whatever he is doing is working and that’s what he promised to do.

      TRUMP 2020, 2024, 2028, 2032….. to infinity and beyond.

    2. He absolutely should be court martial deal. I applaud his service and the medals he earned. But you do not bypass the chain of command and you absolutely do not bad mouth your commander in chief. Should be busted in rank to major and retired. Effective immediately. He is full of himself and has forgotten his place.

      1. maybe he just presented him self with most of those medals- he looks to much like a sissy to be going out in the danger & earning them- he should be drummed out of the military & hung for treason- he wasn’t made to turn on our country — he did it voluntarily- he is a traitor– hang him — ron sargent leftbehind u s army –

  8. Obama fired almost ALL of the ones that Bush had had on staff. Ambassadors and ALL!! Libs all thought that was FINE!! Trump kept almost all of staff, but weeds them out as needed. Or, in this case, as he finds out their Political PRIORITIESTT

  9. obumbler got rid of all the republicans higher up in the military within a short time of taking office. it is way past housecleaning time in the military and intelligence services.

  10. So glad the Swamp is being Drained by President Trump. Vindman was way to cocky and thought his uniform allowed him to do the things he did.

  11. Vidmans lawyer either didn’t listen to the words that were coming out of vidmans mouth or he is just another stupid lying peice of democrat(crap) as his client.

  12. Trump need to remove all of those general in the military that Obama put in . Then clean up the other Obama appointment. These are people who have convert to MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. On the traitor he should lose all his pension and RETIRED PENSION. Place in the military prison til death.

  13. Did his lawyer really just say he followed orders? Numerous people have stated he has a problem following the chain of command and orders. And who’s orders was he following? Was it Sciff? Was it Nadler, Pelosi, Schumer? Whose orders? Certainly not the Commander in Chief. Not his superiors as NONE of them have said so. Was he following orders when he leaked classified information to someone without proper clearance? Was he obeying his oath when he tried to undermine President Trump by counseling a foreign government? Was he obeying his oath or following orders when he speculated on what things meant? This weasel disgraced his position and the uniform he wears and should be , at a bare minimum, dishonorably discharged and stripped of his pension and benefits.

  14. This hole whistleblower was orchestrated by Schiff’s staff and Vindman was one of the player’s’ the military should conduct an investigation to determine if he violated his conduct. This was nothing more than continued Russian Scam.

    1. I hear the Pentagon is protecting him. More deep state games going on. Remember Obama got rid of all the top military heroes and replaced them with his own disciples. They’re still there.

  15. before too long………. it’ll start smelling alot better in the White House and Surrounding AREAS ‘
    NOW, onto the House !!

  16. All commissioned officers serve at the pleasure of the President. Been that way since 1776. Strange that the lib sympathy for Alex Vindman wasnt shown to Stanley McCrystal and David Petraeus.

    1. They sure attacked general Mike Flynn in a millisecond of his becoming part of the Trump team. Vindman will probably be the big shot guest speaker at the DNC convention. They will claim that he spoke “truth to power” which is the fame they bestowed upon the Blasey-Ford demented and delusional psychodrama female. Glad there are people like the contributors to this site.

    1. Jackson, I couldn’t have said it better. Treason is what Vindman is guilty of, that’s for sure. This high and mighty pseudo soldier received medals, but were they for “backstabbing”? Gitmo is too good for him. Losing his pension would be the punishment to fit the crime because he was trying to take EVERYTHING away from President Trump and his family.

  17. The termination of the Vidman twins may not be as tragic as one might think. Those jobs end as detail jobs if and when the reason for them in the first place existed. They will probably go back to their initial assignments and continue on that job. Then when their normal rotation comes around they will be reassigned to the next job in their field. Often soldiers under these conditions usually retire, if eligible, and start their pensions. They could stay on for more assignments but their chance for promotion is probable Zero.

    1. Don, you are absolutely right about LIEUTENANT COLONEL “use my title” Vindman. He needs a court martial. Everything he did was subversive, incorrect, disloyal, and treasonous. As with Andrew McCabe, his pension was the cost of his sedition. If it hits them in their “pension,” swamp people will either be more careful about getting caught, or they will tow the line.

  18. I don’t have the computer skills so I ask someone that does to somehow superimpose Trump’s head onto a picture of Mt. Rushmore and post it everywhere. Besides the fact that I think he deserves it, it will drive the dems over the cliff.

    1. Love the idea of President Trump’s face on Mt. Rushmore. The thought really sends the Dems and liberal media out of their minds!

  19. I really need to repeat what “Rich” posted. I agree with “Dan Winright,” “Toots,” “Kenneth Bailley,” “Mike Rhoades,” “Marian J Schemenauer,” “Bemused Berserker,” and “Wyatt Earp.” So many exceptional comments and so many I didn’t highlight due to space, but brilliant! “Rich,” however, posted really conclusive comments and incorporated what many of these Ywriters posted: “Did his lawyer really just say he followed orders? Numerous people have stated he has a problem following the chain of command and orders. And who’s orders was he following? Was it Sciff? Was it Nadler, Pelosi, Schumer? Whose orders? Certainly not the Commander in Chief. Not his superiors as NONE of them have said so. Was he following orders when he leaked classified information to someone without proper clearance?

  21. Three less rats. Hope the rest of their lives are a reminder of just how useless they are, they will go down in history as big nothings.

  22. All the Obama leftovers should be removed!! There’s been a politicla cult for many years. Thank GOD Trump has got the guts to stand up and clean iy up! Now it’s time for the voters to wisen up and realize that the professional politicians have been working against the citizens for years. They want to stay in control of us, there moto is we do as we’re told and they do as they want. Change is long over due!!

  23. In the case of Andrew McCabe, not only his pension but, he needs to go to jail upon conviction! And, NO PARDONS for ANYONE convicted of Sedition, including that fraudulent Kenyan!!!

  24. WHAT the lawyer for Vindman said , was at best, a poor excuse. Vindman did not “obey, or serve , he tried to “overthrow” . How a military man at his level , could “leak” information, is treasonous.
    I must submit my opinion on the military. FIRE EVERY officer that “was appointed by Obama” and replace them with serious officers , that have only allegiances to the United States. If you will recall, Obama fired over 200 loyal officers , with impeccable credentials , and replaced them with people like Vindman.
