TESTIMONY IN THE HOUSE
IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION BY A
DECORATED WAR HERO WHO
WORKS ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL AND
WHO WAS AMONG THOSE
WHO HEARD THAT PHONE CALL BETWEEN PRESIDENT
TRUMP AND HIS
UKRAINIAN COUNTERPART. HALLIE JACKSON NOW
WITH LATE DETAILS ON
THAT. >>Reporter: BOMBSHELL
TESTIMONY TONIGHT.
FOR THE FIRST TIME, A FIRSTHAND WITNESS TO
THE EXPLOSIVE
CONVERSATION THAT IGNITED THE
IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY.
>>DID THE WHITE HOUSE TRY TO PREVENT YOU
FROM TESTIFYING?
>>Reporter: LIEUTENANT COLONEL
ALEXANDER VINDMAN, A
COMBAT VETERAN AND NATIONAL SECURITY
COUNCIL STAFFER, WAS
ON THAT JULY CALL BETWEEN PRESIDENT
TRUMP AND THE
UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT, LISTENING IN FROM THE
SITUATION ROOM.
THEN SENDING UP THIS STUNNING ALARM.
THIS WOULD ALL
UNDERMINE U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY.
VINDMAN IS TELLING
LAWMAKERS HE WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE
CONVERSATION IN WHICH
THE PRESIDENT ASKED FOR POLITICAL HELP AS
UKRAINE WAS SEEKING
KEY MILITARY AID. ACCORDING TO DOCUMENTS
OBTAINED BY NBC NEWS,
VINDMAN SAYS “I DID NOT THINK IT WAS
PROPER TO DEMAND THAT
A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATE A U.S.
CITIZEN, AND I WAS
WORRIED ABOUT THE IMPLICATIONS FOR THE
U.S. GOVERNMENT’S
SUPPORT OF UKRAINE.” HE ADDS, “ANY
INVESTIGATION INTO THE
BIDENS WOULD LIKELY BE INTERPRETED AS A
PARTISAN PLAY WHICH
WOULD UNDOUBTEDLY RESULT IN UKRAINE
LOSING THE BIPARTISAN
SUPPORT IT HAS THUS FAR MAINTAINED,”
TELLING HIS SUPERIORS
MORE THAN ONCE OF HIS CONCERNS.
REFERENCING HIS
MILITARY SERVICE, VINDMAN WRITES OF HIS
MOTIVATION “FOR
DEFYING THE WHITE HOUSE TO SPEAK OUT
NOW, I AM A PATRIOT,
AND IT IS MY SACRED DUTY AND HONOR TO
ADVANCE AND DEFEND OUR
COUNTRY, IRRESPECTIVE OF POLITICS.
OR PARTY.
THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO PAINT
VINDMAN AS PARTISAN,
ACCUSING HIM OF BEING A NEVER TRUMPER WITH
NO EVIDENCE.

TREASON FROM A MAN WHO
EMIGRATED TO THE U.S. FROM THE UKRAINE AS A
CHILD.
>>HERE WE HAVE A U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY
OFFICIAL WHO IS
ADVISING UKRAINE WHILE WORKING INSIDE THE
WHITE HOUSE,
APPARENTLY AGAINST THE PRESIDENT’S INTERESTS
AND USUALLY THEY SPOKE
IN ENGLISH. >>SOME PEOPLE MIGHT
CALL THAT ESPIONAGE.
>>HE HAS AN AFFINITY PROBABLY FOR HIS
HOMELAND.
>>Reporter: BUT SOME GOP LAWMAKERS
DISGUSTED AT THAT
SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST A DECORATED SOLDIER
WHO RECEIVED A PURPLE
HEART AFTER SURVIVING A ROAD-SIDE BOMB IN
IRAQ.
>>IT IS SHAMEFUL TO QUESTION THEIR
PATRIOTISM, THEIR LOVE
OF THIS NATION, AND WE SHOULD NOT BE INVOLVED
IN THAT PROCESS.
>>Reporter: DEMOCRATS ALSO FURIOUS.
>>LOOK YOURSELF IN
THE MIRROR AND ASK IF YOU WANT TO SIT ON THE
SIDELINES WHILE THE
PRESIDENT TRIES TO TAKE DOWN A PATRIOT.
>>THEY DON’T HAVE ANY
WAY TO EXPLAIN AWAY THIS EVIDENCE.
>>Reporter: STILL,
REPUBLICANS DO ARGUE VINDMAN’S WRONG WHEN
HE SAYS NATIONAL
SECURITY WAS EVER AT RISK.
>>WE ARE ALL ABLE TO
SEE THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO.
THE MONEY WAS
RELEASED. UKRAINE DID NOTHING,
AND NO ACTION WAS
TAKEN. WHERE’S THE CRIME?
>>Reporter: HOUSE
DEMOCRATS ARE ALSO FORMALIZING THE RULES
OF THEIR IMPEACHMENT
INQUIRY, INTRODUCING A RESOLUTION TODAY TO
HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS
