Trump publicly admits he fired White House official as retaliation for impeachment testimony: 'He was very insubordinate'

Donald Trump has appeared to admit he fired a senior White House official in part for the aide’s involvement in the impeachment inquiry.

Lt Col Alexander Vindman, a Russia and Ukraine expert on the National Security Council (NSC), was escorted from the White House on Friday after the US president ordered his removal.

He had given evidence to House committee hearings which led to Mr Trump being impeached on charges of abuse of power and obstructing Congress relating to a campaign by the president to pressure Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden, a political rival.

He fired a Purple Heart veteran for trying to be a patriot and do the honest thing. Very pathetic. Flush the turd, November 3rd!
