President Donald Trump Fires Impeachment Witnesses

EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a stand-out witness in the impeachment trial of President Trump, was fired on Friday, hours after LTC Alexander Vindman, a key national security official who testified that Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was “improper,” was “escorted” from the White House. President Trump also fired Vindman’s brother, LTC Yevgeny Vindman, from his position on the National Security Council.
