维德曼是国家安全委员会的乌克兰专家。他的律师说他因为“说真话”而被解雇了。

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a decorated Army officer who served as the Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, was escorted out of the White House on Friday after reports surfaced that President Donald Trump would be punishing people who testified during his impeachment trial.

Vindman is a national security official who testified about his knowledge of a July 2019 call with the Ukrainian president that set off Trump’s impeachment inquiry and proceedings. Up until Friday, Vindman worked in the White House and his term in the NSC would have ended in July.

维德曼是国家安全委员会的一员,他作证说他知道特朗普在2019年7月对乌克兰总统的一通电话,这开启了特朗普的弹劾调查议程。9822.com_【官方首页】-澳门金沙直到周五,维德曼还一直工作在白宫,他在国安会的任期会在7月结束。

The White House planned to inform Vindman that he was being moved into a role at the Pentagon, The Washington Post reported late Thursday night, citing two people familiar with the plan.

周四稍晚时候,《华盛顿邮报》援引两位知情人士的报道称:白宫打算通知维德曼,他将被调往五角大楼担任某个角色。



“Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, a senior lawyer and ethics official at the National Security Council, and a decorated Iraq war veteran, was escorted off of the grounds of the White House, suddenly and with no explanation, despite over two decades of loyal service to this country,” Pressman told HuffPost. “He is deeply disappointed that he will not be able to continue his service at the White House.”

国家安全委员会的高级律师和道德官员叶夫根尼·维德曼中校,他同时是一名伊拉克战争退伍军人,也被突然请离了白宫,没有任何解释,无视他为这个国家超过二十年忠心耿耿的效力。普雷斯曼告诉赫芬顿邮报:“他对不能继续为白宫服务感到深深的失望。”

Earlier on Friday, ahead of a trip to North Carolina, Trump hinted at Vindman’s dismissal when asked by a reporter whether he wanted to see the officer “out” of the White House.

周五早些时候,在前往北卡罗来纳州之前,当特朗普被一个记者问及他是否打算见到这名官员被“出局”时,特朗普暗示了维德曼会被解雇。

“Well, I’m not happy with him,” Trump told reporters. “Do you think I’m supposed to be happy with him? I’m not.”

“嗯,我对他不满意,”特朗普告诉记者。9822.com_【官方首页】-澳门金沙“你认为我应该和他相处愉快吗?我才不会。”

Vindman was the first person to testify in the House’s impeachment hearings who had personally listened in on Trump’s July 25 call with the Ukrainian president, and he told lawmakers he repeatedly expressed concerns to his superiors that Trump’s behavior was inappropriate.

维德曼是第一个在众院弹劾听证会上出来作证的人,他亲耳听见了7月25日特朗普和乌克兰总统的通话,他告诉议员们他多次跟他的上级表达了他对特朗普的不当行为的担忧。



The Post noted Thursday that Trump’s ire may extend throughout the White House to other administration officials who spoke or testified during the impeachment inquiry. During the House impeachment hearings, dozens of current and former officials detailed the president’s demand that the leader of Ukraine announce that he was opening an investigation into political rival Joe Biden and Biden’s son Hunter.

邮报周四指出,特朗普的愤怒可能会波及白宫的其他政府官员,在众院弹劾听证会期间,数十名现任或者前任官员详述了总统的要求,即乌克兰领导人宣布对特朗普的政治对手乔·拜登和拜登的儿子亨特展开一项调查。
