Former Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly: Lt. Vindman Was Right About Trump’s ‘Illegal Order’ on Ukraine
Former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told an audience at Drew University on Feb. 12 that Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, a former National Security Council aide, was correct about President Doanld Trump’s “illegal order” on Ukraine, notes The Atlantic:
He did exactly what we teach them to do from cradle to grave. He went and told his boss what he just heard.
Kelly confirmed that Trump withheld aid to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky dig up dirt on the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Kelly also confirmed that Vindman was among multiple U.S. officials who listened in on the Trump-Zelensky call, and that Vindman told the truth at the House impeachment hearings.
