President Donald Trump on Friday recalled U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, a key witness in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, NBC News reported.

The move was reported hours after it was revealed that Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, another witness in the impeachment proceedings, was recalled from his post as a National Security Council staffer.

David Pressman, a lawyer for Vindman, decried the action as an attempt by Trump to “exact revenge” against officials in his administration who cooperated with House Democrats.
