WASHINGTON (AP) An Army officer at the National Security Council who twice raised concerns over the Trump administrations push to have Ukraine investigate Democrats and Joe Biden, arrived in military uniform on Capitol Hill to testify today in the impeachment inquiry.
Alexander Vindman, an lieutenant colonel who served in Iraq and, later, as a diplomat, is prepared to tell House investigators that he listened to President Donald Trumps July 25 call with new Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and reported his concerns to the NSCs lead counsel, according to prepared testimony.
His arrival in military blue, with medals, created a striking image as he entered the Capitol and made his way to the secure briefing room behind closed doors.
