Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is testifying Tuesday in a public hearing in the House impeachment inquiry into Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to investigate his Democratic political rivals as he withheld aid to the East European nation.
Vindman is a U.S. Army officer detailed to the National Security Council. He listened in on the July 25 call at the center of the impeachment inquiry. Trump asked the new Ukrainian president to look into whether Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election and wanted the country to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Vindman said it was “improper” for Trump to demand a foreign government investigative a U.S. citizen and political opponent.
Vindman is one of several witnesses coming before the committee this week. He and the other witnesses have already testified behind closed doors.
Trump has denied doing anything wrong.
