Anti-Trump Officials Fired, Escorted from White House After Impeachment Acquittal

Democrats were concerned that Trump would be emboldened by an impeachment acquittal. They very well may have been correct.

President Trump has been acquitted by the Senate in his impeachment trial – a fate that was predicted long ago by politicians and pundits alike.

The Senate’s Republican majority seemed destined to acquit Trump from the very start, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had all but guaranteed that the former NYC real estate mogul would walk away from the proceedings unscathed.  In fact, the only Republican to stray from the path was Mitt Romney, Utah Senator and longtime critic of Donald Trump.

Democrats feared that Trump would be emboldened by the exoneration, and it appears as though they may have been right.

“I was advised today that the president intends to recall me effective immediately as United States ambassador to the European Union,” Sondland said.

Sondland’s recall follows the dismissal of another impeachment witness, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was fired  by the National Security Council and escorted off of the White House grounds on Friday.

Vindman and Sondland both testified against the President in the House’s “formal impeachment inquiry”, with the latter going so far as to deliver a scathing soundbite during his opening statement that clearly indicated that a “quid pro quo” was present in the UkraineGate scandal.
