President Donald Trump has had a week unlike any other in the history of our great nation.
First, there was the State of the Union address, where the Commander in Chief laid out a long list of achievements that his administration has forged over the course of the last year. Many of these wins have come, predictably, from the economic sector where President Trump has been nigh unstoppable.
Despite this, the event was filled with drama as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brought her anti-Trump tirades to the main stage, not only cutting short the normally complimentary introduction of the President, but also dramatically tearing a copy of the speech itself in half at its completion.
Then, just a day later, Trump was acquitted by the Senate in his impeachment trial – a major win for the incumbent Republican ahead of the 2020 election.
During the impeachment process, the nation heard from a number of witnesses from within the intelligence community, including Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman who is now in peril of losing his spot on the National Security Council.
The White House is considering removing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in President Donald Trump’s impeachment investigation, as part of a plan to downsize the Trump administration’s foreign policy bureaucracy, according to Bloomberg News.
Vindman serves as the National Security Council’s expert on Ukraine affairs and listened in on the July 25 telephone between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which the president asked his counterpart to look into allegations of corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
Is this a vindictive vacating of Vindman by the Commander in Chief, or simply an attempt at bringing some new blood into the NSC? Only President Trump knows for sure.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
