...President Trump claimed that many people in the White House applauded after Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, one of the key impeachment witnesses, left the building.
...Vindman's departure came in February after the Senate voted to acquit Trump in the impeachment trial fueled, in part, by the former national security official.
...Vindman's lawyer said his client was escorted out of the White House complex, told to leave in retaliation for "Telling the truth."
...The White House had not been coy about whether Trump would retaliate against those he viewed as foes in the impeachment drama.
...White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Thursday that Trump was glad it was over and "Maybe people should pay for that."
