Trump reacts after John Kelly calls White House job 'a killer'

Trump reacts after John Kelly calls White House job 'a killer'”

The top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee said Wednesday that he expected Defense Secretary Mark Esper to live up to his promise of no retaliation against Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, whose testimony was pivotal in the House vote to impeach President Donald Trump.

Sondland had testified that he believed Trump was withholding military aid for Ukraine until an investigation was launched into former Vice President Joe Biden, and it amounted to a "quid pro quo".

The Iran war powers resolution was approved by a vote of 55-45 hours after Mr Trump warned that it would make the U.S. less safe from Iran. "They were both flawless, appropriate calls", he said.

Pfeiffer, who now directs the Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy, and International Security at George Mason University, said the memoranda of foreign leader calls also fulfill important historical recordkeeping requirements.

"I may end the practice entirely", Trump told Geraldo Rivera in a radio interview that aired Thursday. "I may end it entirely".

The resignations raise questions over whether Trump had at least indirectly exerted his will on a Justice Department he often views as an arm of the White House.

Trump called Vindman's actions in the aftermath of his phone call to Zelenskiy "very subordinate".

"We teach them: Don't follow an illegal order", Kelly said.

Trump has defended Vindman's removal, calling him "very insubordinate", and suggesting the military could punish him. But he said he thinks Trump likes having Vice-President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo or O'Brien listening to the conversations.

US President Donald Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in 2019.

This has gone hand in hand with their failure to take any action to hold Trump to account for his violations of the Constitution.

Shortly after Vindman was sacked, Trump also recalled Gordon Sondland, the ambassador to the European Union, from his post in Brussels.

Harvard law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued on the Senate floor that "if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that can not be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment". Just so you understand, many of these people I've never met. However, several Trump administration officials have insisted Vindman was only reassigned and have dismissed claims of political motives.

"LTC Vindman complied with a subpoena. His honor, his commitment to right, frightened the powerful".

He said he doesn't think the border wall needs to extend "from sea to shining sea", the Atlantic reported, and said many migrants are good people looking for opportunity, and not criminal or "rapists" as Mr. Trump famously put it in 2015. The move would bring the council staff "back to a manageable size", O'Brien said Tuesday. "We're not a country where a bunch of lieutenant colonels can get together and decide what the policy is of the United States". Following the resignation of the United States attorneys, Attorney General William Barr, who approved the lessening of the sentence to be imposed on Stone, criticized Trump, saying his public statements made it "impossible to do my job".
