Alexander Vindman, a key witness for House Democrats’ impeachment investigation against President Trump, called on Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley to resign on Tuesday, following revelations that Milley secretly called his counterpart in China to offer assurances that the U.S. would give warning in case of a nuclear assault.

“If this is true GEN Milley must resign,” Vindman wrote on Twitter. “He usurped civilian authority, broke Chain of Command, and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military.”

Vindman added, “It’s an extremely dangerous precedent. You can’t simply walk away from that.”

Now a retired lieutenant colonel, Vindman served as an official on the National Security Council and testified in the House impeachment probe on Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
