Trump Jr Thanks Schiff for 'Unearthing' Who Needed Firing From Trump Administration
President son mocks House Intelligence Committee Chairman on Twitter
Donald Trump Jr. sarcastically thanked House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for unwittingly unearthing "who all needed to be fired" from his father's administration following the Democrats' failed impeachment efforts.
After the news broke U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland and National Security Council aid Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman were both fired, President Donald Trump's son sent his message on Twitter.
"Allow me a moment to thank—and this may be a bit of a surprise—Adam Schiff," Trump Jr. tweeted.
"Were it not for his crack investigation skills, @realDonaldTrump might have had a tougher time unearthing who all needed to be fired. Thanks, Adam!"
Trump finished the message with the hashtag, "FullOfSchiff," and laughing emoji.
Vindamn was first to go and was marched out of the White House by security, according to News Thud.
Shortly after, Sondland, who testified about President Trump’s Ukraine dealings during the House impeachment hearings, revealed he had been recalled from his overseas position.
Earlier this week, Trump was found not guilty by the Senate.
"I want to apologize to my family for having them have to go through a phony, rotten deal by some very evil and sick people," President Trump said, following his acquittal.
"So, I just want to thank my family for sticking through it. This was not part of the deal."

Earlier this week, Schiff weighed in on Trump's acquittal noting national security adviser John Bolton declined to submit a sworn affidavit under oath during President's impeachment for the alleged wrongdoing with Ukraine.
Schiff said that Democrats approached Bolton’s counsel to see if he would provide a written statement after the Senate voted not to call witnesses.
Bolton's written statement would have been "describing what he observed in terms of the president’s Ukraine misconduct."
“For whatever reason, he was willing to testify before the Senate, but apart from that seems intent on saving it for his book," Schiff said.
"He’ll have to answer for that," he added.
