WASHINGTON (AP) - The decorated soldier and White House aide who says it was his "sacred duty" to speak out against President Donald Trump’s attempt to pressure Ukraine is ready to speak publicly.


When Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman appears before the House impeachment panel Tuesday, Democrats and Republicans are expected to press contrasting narratives about the 20-year Army veteran’s decision to come forward to allege abuse of power by his commander in chief.

Vindman’s supporters describe him as a duty-bound soldier who spoke up when he witnessed Trump abuse his power.

But one witness in the House impeachment investigation said Vindman’s judgment was lacking and withheld sensitive information from him, even though he was a top adviser on Ukraine issues to the White House National Security Council.

The hearings will be carried live on WDIO-DT,, and the WDIO mobile app.
