...Former White House chief of staff John Kelly unloaded on President Trump on a litany of issues, ranging from his policies to the decision to remove Lt. Col.
...During a speech at Drew University on Wednesday night, Kelly suggested it was wrong for Trump to remove Vindman from the National Security Council after he testified in the impeachment hearings.
..."He did exactly what we teach them to do from cradle to grave," Kelly said.
..."We teach them, 'Don't follow an illegal order. And if you're ever given one, you'll raise it to whoever gives it to you that this is an illegal order, and then tell your boss,'" Kelly explained.
...Kelly said Trump should not have intervened in the decision as to whether Gallagher should keep his Trident pin after being pardoned, saying, "The idea that the commander in chief intervened there, in my opinion, was exactly the wrong thing to do. Had I been there, I think I could have prevented it."
