Is it retribution? They testified against him in a failed impeachment case. They testified against the President of the United States in favor of his removal. Why would he want them to continue to serve at his pleasure? That makes no sense at all.
“...They testified against the President of the United States in favor of his removal. ...”
They made it clear that as employees of the federal government who are charged to work for the elected administration that they obviously do not agree with the goals of the administration. At a different time in history, these people would have resigned on principle, respecting the voters and America’s way of governing itself. No more. They are in reality are arrogant, unprincipled, corrupt and undermining the integrity of our government institutions.
Why would any of these hero apparatchiks want to sully themselves by working for this boob Trump?
It wasn’t failed impeachment. It was a failed coup.
These yahoos should after Schiff. He claimed he had the mountain of iron clad proof.
More importantly, they testified about second-hand information that had no evidentiary value, did not accurately reflect the facts, and was only done to undermine the President.
