‘Friday night massacre’: Experts say Trump firing of 3 officials including Sondland and Vindman is a ‘criminal’ offense (Raw Story link): President Donald Trump late Friday afternoon and evening ended the week by firing three administration and White House officials, he blames for his impeachment in a campaign of retribution that some experts are calling illegal.

Trump not only had Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman transferred out of the White House, he had him fired from his National Security Post and escorted out of the building. Vindman’s twin brother, who also works on the NSC, was summarily fired and escorted out as well, as The New York Times reports.

If that weren’t enough Trump then turned around and had his Ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, fired as well.

Both Vindman and Sondland had testified before Congress, proving the whistleblower’s claims that the president engaged in disturbing behavior by extorting Ukraine. The General Accounting Office substantiated that claim, stating that Trump’s withholding of hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid was illegal.

The hashtag #FridayNightMasacre is trending on Twitter right now.

CNN Legal Analyst and former federal and state prosecutor Elie Honig says Trump’s actions today are “criminal.”

"I'm sounding this bell now. It is disgraceful and criminal to demote and fire witnesses - as we are seeing with Vindman, his brother, Sondland. But this could get even worse - including bogus criminal charges against perceived Trump enemies in FBI and elsewhere. Watch for this."

Calling it a “Friday Night Massacre,” professor of international relations and visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University, journalist, and CEO of The Rothkopf Group, David Rothkopf also says Trump’s actions today are criminal.

"Friday night massacre.  Don't lose sight of the fact that this wave of retribution is a crime."

Mod: More at the link. Remember when Alexander Vindman opened his impeachment hearing testimony by saying he's glad his father left Russia, where he would face severe retribution for testifying? Welcome to Moscow on the Potomac.

  2. Not that this pos president cares about legality! And neither do the republicans who support his every act! Trump must be prosecuted for treason as well as each and every republican who helps him.

    1. Mango Mussolettes: Bullseye strike from Tattler on the hatred shown by Trump's continuous attack tweets on Vindman after firing him. Eric Trump's killing of endangered species abroad is well known. Plus Eric wanted Pelosi jailed after the State of the Speech address. Now endangering US Democracy & Military lives in Iran..... add a snide remark Romney's Mormon faith after public sympathy. Stir the recipe and watch national resistance to the Orange Facism brought by the Trump Family

  10. The visiting Professor of International Relations at John Hopkins with his self appointed title bestowed upon himself should also have his credentials as a "journalist" pulled and his passport docked, American does not need his kind setting foot into the country. The "DON" should act like the KGB as so many NEVER TRUMPERS accuse him of behaving, why not act upon that which he is being accused of?

  15. The "Firing Of The Brother" will bring Trump down. Why fire the brother? The brother did nothing wrong and did not testify. But Trump had to get total revenge so he fired someone who did nothing wrong in anyone's eyes. Everyone understands that this is a mean and vicious act that was totally wrong. You don't have to be an historian or political expert to understand that.

    ...I think that firing the brother will be the act that does Trump in. If Trump can prove that the brother did something wrong, well, then things will be different. If Trump cannot prove that the brother did something wrong, then people will talk about that. Over and over again people will say, "Why did he fire the brother?"

    The conclusion is that Trump fired the brother because he hated the family and had to get "revenge." That is easy to understand, and totally and completely wrong. It will bring him down, even though he may be legally able to fire that brother. That is what people will talk about over and over and over. "The brother did nothing wrong, yet Trump fired him anyway. "

    This is simple, easy to understand, connects to all of us, and total truth. What did the "brother" do? "Why fire the brother?" The brother did not testify, did he?
