I dunno, I’ve talked to people who were in situations like that at work. I imagine he’s just as happy to go. Probably the only Ukraine speaker they have though. He can’t be fired from the Army without a Court Marshal, they’ll just reassign him to Greenland or something.

Vindman was working as a Defense Department detailee on the White House National Security Council. He testified during the House impeachment inquiry into whether President Trump inappropriately pressured Ukraine’s leader to launch investigations into Trump’s political rivals.

Trump has expressed anger at his cooperation with House Democrats. Vindman’s lawyer said he was escorted out of the White House on Friday afternoon.

“”Today, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was escorted out of the White House where he has dutifully served his country and his President,” David Pressman said in a statement. “He does so having spoken publicly once, and only pursuant to a subpoena from the United States Congress.”

The attorney representing Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman issued a scorching statement after his client was “escorted out of the White House” on Friday.

“There is no question in the mind of any American why this man’s job is over, why this country now has one less soldier serving it at the White House,” Ambassador David Pressman said.

“LTC Vindman was asked to leave for telling the truth. His honor, his commitment to right, frightened the powerful,” he argued.

“The truth has cost LTC Alexander Vindman his job, his career, and his privacy. He did what any member of our military is charged with doing every day: he followed orders, he obeyed his oath, and he served his country, even when doing so was fraught with danger and personal peril,” Pressman said.

“If we allow truthful voices to be silenced, if we ignore their warnings, eventually there will be no one left to warn us,” he added.
