A few hours after Trump’s tweet, however, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman appeared in the Capitol. His testimony made it clear that Trump’s claim is obsolete to reveal the identity of the whistleblower.

Vindman confirmed with every word the representation that anonymous informants and thus the perspective of the Democrats, which are currently preparing an impeachment against Trump for abuse of office.

The witness told the investigative committees of the House of Representatives that he overheard the phone call on July 25. Trump’s demand that Kiev initiate investigations into the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, he considered so damaging to the national interests that he had turned to a superior.

Vindman was in Iraq, was wounded by an improvised explosive trap and awarded the “Purple Heart”, a medal for bravery

According to his initial statement, the text of which had already become public before the non-public hearing, he made two complaints about the telephone call – “a sense of duty”, as it was called. “I did not think it appropriate to ask a foreign government to investigate an American citizen. I was also worried about the implications for US support for Kiev, “Vindman said, referring to the Congressional approval of Trump for non-military aid to the Ukraine.

Vindman went on to say he knew that Kiev’s investigation into Biden, whose son Hunter and gas company Burisma, on whose board the son was sitting, would certainly be interpreted as partisan tactics. Undoubtedly, this would have meant that Kiev would have lost the inter-factional support it had enjoyed so far in Congress. That, he concluded, would undermine United States national security.

Vindman is the first employee of the White House who opposed the directive of the presidential office not to testify in Congress

Vindman is the first employee of the White House who opposed the directive of the presidential office not to testify in Congress. At the same time, he is the highest ranked Ukraine expert in the National Security Council, reporting to the White House. The army staff officer, who was in active service for 20 years, himself comes from the Ukraine. As a soldier, he was in Iraq, was wounded by an improvised explosive trap and awarded the “Purple Heart”, a medal for bravery.

The officer described himself at the hearing as a “patriot” defending his country independently of party politics and political camps. Trump later commented on Vindman’s testimony, which he called a “Never Trumper” witness, who could not possibly talk about the same phone call he had made. You may want to read the log. Trump considers the conversation with Selenskyj to be “perfect”.
