Top U.S. Ukraine official who heard Trump phone call to testify Tues in defiance of WH

The White House’s top Ukraine official who notified his superiors about Trump’s phone call and his tactics “out of a sense of duty” will testify Tuesday despite being told not to by the White House. Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman will tell investigators “I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen. … I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained. … “This would all undermine U.S. national security,”

His statement includes the declaration he is not the whistleblower and he would not speculate on who it was.

The New York Times was the first to report the story.

His testimony will make the first time someone who heard the call will testify.

Here’s a link to Vindman’s opening statement.

This is a big blow to Trump … someone who heard the call and was concerned enough to report it.

From his statement

“ On July 25, 2019, the calloccurred. listened in on the call in the situation Room with colleagues from the NSC and the office of the President.As the transcript
is in the public record, we are all aware of what was said”.

Basically, his statement is his opinion of the call.

I think everybody has an opinion of the call. It’s moot.

How convenient!

So since there is disagreement among us about abortion — it’s moot.

You lost me. Are you comparing this to establishing laws or confirming laws constitutionality?

Odd comparison.

I like how this keeps on getting worse

I was reacting to your he said/he said conclusion. Some things call for judgments to be made.

I agree, but not in this case.

If Obama said the exact same things on a call, Trump supporters would be screaming bloody murder.

It’s not a tan suit

Fox News just called this decorated veteran and Purple Heart recipient a spy.
