BREAKING: Alexander Vindman Is Escorted Out of the White House and Pearls Are Clutched

This was long overdue, although I understand why the President had to wait.

Alexander Vindman, perhaps the most insufferable, uselessly smug “witness” in the entire impeachment fiasco was fired from the NSC today and escorted out of the White House.

Vindman spent most of the time before and during his impeachment testimony fluffing his credentials, lauding his own patriotism, and presenting himself as the arbiter of U.S. policy toward Ukraine. But his complaints really boiled down the fact that he didn’t like the President actually making foreign policy decisions. He offered nothing of value as far as an impeachable offense went and really had no first hand knowledge of anything.

What Vindman did do was share information with Eric Ciaramella, and likely illegally as it was classified at a very high level. Perhaps a court martial is in his future? I don’t know, but I suspect this isn’t the end of this.

Pearls are already being clutched.

Maybe we could get another impeachment going?

The truth is that Vindman is not entitled to a place on the President’s staff and there’s simply noway he could remain after what he did. Good riddance.
