Alexander Vindman, Army Officer Who Testified Against Trump, Escorted Out Of White House

亞歷山大·維德曼,曾作證反對特朗普的軍官,被請出白宮。



Vindman was the Ukraine expert for the National Security Council. His attorney said he was dismissed for “telling the truth.”

維德曼是國家安全委員會的烏克蘭專家。他的律師說他因為“說真話”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.

曾在國家安全委員會擔任烏克蘭問題專家的陸軍中校亞歷山大·維德曼周五被請出了白宮。此前有報道稱特朗普總統打算懲罰那些在彈劾審判期間作證的人。

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.

維德曼是國家安全委員會的一員,他作證說他知道特朗普在2019年7月對烏克蘭總統的一通電話,這開啟了特朗普的彈劾調查議程。直到周五,維德曼還一直工作在白宮,他在國安會的任期會在7月結束。

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.

周四稍晚時候,《華盛頓郵報》援引兩位知情人士的報道稱:白宮打算通知維德曼,他將被調往五角大樓擔任某個角色。



“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.”

國家安全委員會的高級律師和道德官員葉夫根尼·維德曼中校,他同時是一名伊拉克戰爭退伍軍人,也被突然請離了白宮,沒有任何解釋,無視他為這個國家超過二十年忠心耿耿的效力。普雷斯曼告訴赫芬頓郵報:“他對不能繼續為白宮服務感到深深的失望?!?br />
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.

周五早些時候,在前往北卡羅來納州之前,當特朗普被一個記者問及他是否打算見到這名官員被“出局”時,特朗普暗示了維德曼會被解雇。

“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,我對他不滿意,”特朗普告訴記者?!澳阏J為我應該和他相處愉快嗎?我才不會?!?br />
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.

維德曼是第一個在眾院彈劾聽證會上出來作證的人,他親耳聽見了7月25日特朗普和烏克蘭總統的通話,他告訴議員們他多次跟他的上級表達了他對特朗普的不當行為的擔憂。



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.

郵報周四指出,特朗普的憤怒可能會波及白宮的其他政府官員,在眾院彈劾聽證會期間,數十名現任或者前任官員詳述了總統的要求,即烏克蘭領導人宣布對特朗普的政治對手喬·拜登和拜登的兒子亨特展開一項調查。
