Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, plans to tell House investigators Tuesday that he reported concerns over President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy over concerns that it was improper to “demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen,” according to a draft of his opening statement obtained by The New York Times.

Vindman, a decorated Iraq war veteran, will also say he “was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine. 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.”

Vindman will be the first White House official to testify who listened in on the phone call.

During the July 25 conversation, Trump asked Zelenskiy if he would investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden — who along with his son Hunter is accused by the president of corruption.

Democrats are pushing ahead with their impeachment inquiry and will vote to formalize the process this week.
