Trump's aides eye moving impeachment witnesses out of White House jobs
Washington (CNN) - President Donald Trump's aides have explored moving some impeachment witnesses on loan to the White House from other agencies, such as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, back to their home departments ahead of schedule, according to people familiar with the conversations.
As public hearings bring the officials' allegations to his television screen, Trump is asking anew how witnesses such as Vindman and Ambassador Bill Taylor came to work for him, people familiar with the matter said. He has suggested again they be dismissed, even as advisers warn him firing them could be viewed as retaliation.
The possible move of officials out of the White House could still be viewed by some as evidence of retribution for their testimony. Trump's frustration at his own officials comes as he attacks witnesses on Twitter, including during Friday's public hearing with the ousted ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Trump appears to have adopted a strategy of maligning the officials, despite some allies encouraging him not to.
The uncertain fate and public thrashing of these officials has created a thorny situation for a White House wading through the impeachment process. Trump's impulse to dismiss them hasn't been realized, but he's made clear nevertheless he views them as unwelcome.

There, fixed it for you.
Stick it tRump
Tens of millions in settlements. GSA Legals will have their day.
All because you insist on supporting a man so catastrophically stupid he cant understand basic principles of employment law.
Again,it will require Deposition's. Which will just cause the dollar factor to increase.
Doesnt seem like punishment or retribution compared with having to stay in the middle of that shitstorm. (Unless youre planning on a book deal)
For the military folks in the White House, I hope the military will establish a new medal for those who have been assigned to the WH during the Trump reign of corruption. A medal for hazard duty assignment in a foreign environment constantly under attack from Russian allies in the Oval Office.
