John Kelly says Vindman was right to report Trump's call with Zelensky

Washington (CNN) — Former White House chief of staff John Kelly said Wednesday that Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a key witness in President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry, was right to raise concerns about Trump's July call to Ukraine's president, The Atlantic reported.

Kelly also believes that Vindman, who was fired from White House last week, told the truth during testimony before House investigators last fall.

"Having seen something 'questionable (in the call),' Vindman properly notified his superiors," Kelly said at an event at Drew University, according to the magazine. "When subpoenaed by Congress in the House impeachment hearings, Vindman complied and told the truth."

"He did exactly what we teach them to do from cradle to grave," he said, according to the magazine. "He went and told his boss what he just heard."

1. Negative Red Leader

Read the story, Kelly has no direct knowledge of what happened

It’s all going to come out and when it does lots of people out to get Trump will be going to jail

Just like Roger Stone is going to get a new trial because the Prosecutors the Judge AND the Jury were all tainted

5. Democrats want that to change. Republican presidents must hire ONLY liberals and ...

having the cojones to fire a liberal is an impeachable offense.

7. "Trump is a vindictive criminal tyrant."? If he was, guess who'd be first up against the wall.

For a "vindictive tyrant" he's a failure.

How many of his opponents are in the Gulags he was supposed to create?

Wheer are all those gulags anyway?

Which of the people trying to impeach him, have mysteriously been "disappeared" or been murdered in "random street crimes"?

I must have missed where he imprisoned the editors and publishers who wrote Op Eds against him, like that "tyrant" Lincoln did.

You Lefties are such fucking lame ass Drama Queens.

8. "Trump is a vindictive criminal tyrant."? If he was, guess who'd be first up against the wall."

He's already targeting people who testified against him. I never said they were being placed against the wall.


"How many of his opponents are in the Gulags he was supposed to create?"

Righties constantly talk about jailing Trump opponents. I never said they were in Gulags.



"Which of the people trying to impeach him, have mysteriously been "disappeared" or been murdered in "random street crimes"?"

They are being smeared and fired daily. I never said they were murdered or disappeared.



"I must have missed where he imprisoned the editors and publishers who wrote Op Eds against him, like that "tyrant" Lincoln did."

Trump himself and his media thugs smear editors and publishers on a daily basis. I never said they were imprisoned.


You accuse the left of being dramatic while posting nothing but made up drama.

9. In other words

your rant claiming "vindictive criminal tyrant" is nothing but more baseless hyperbole.

Cleaning house isn't always about revenge.
"Righties" talking about something, or supposedly 'smearing someone', isn't a crime.
Reassigning or firing subordinates is not tyrannical.

Talk about posting made up drama. FFS

10. In short, behaving like a ...

... A 13 year old girl, having a tantrum because she didn't get an invitation to the big party. Stomp around, rant, rave, scream at people out of frustration.

Then she wonders why no one wants to have her nasty self around.

The description "Drama Queen" really fits for soooo many reasons.
