Actually, I dont know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I dont believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my ‘perfect’ calls incorrectly, & was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information, Trump tweeted. In other words, OUT.

The tweet comes a day after Vindman was escorted out of the White House and told to leave his position at the National Security Council (NSC).
Vindman was a key witness in the Houses impeachment probe, testifying mainly about Trumps phone call with the Ukrainian president during which Trump raised investigations of former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenFive takeaways: Fear of Trump hangs over Democratic debateButtigieg, Sanders aim to build momentum from New Hampshire debatePoll: New Hampshire Democrats would prefer an extinction-causing meteor over Trump reelectionMORE and his son. 
Vindman, who listened in on the July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, testified publicly and privately that he believed the call was inappropriate and that he reported it to White House lawyers.
Trump has repeatedly insisted that his phone call with Zelensky was perfect and has cast himself as the victim of a partisan witch hunt. 
There is no question in the mind of any American why this mans job is over, why this country now has one less soldier serving it at the White House, David Pressman, Vindmans attorney, said in a statement. LTC Vindman was asked to leave for telling the truth. 
Vindman is expected to assume a position at the Pentagon before going to the National War College in July, according to reports.
