According to prepared testimony obtained by The Associated Press, Vindman, a Jewish refugee born in Ukraine, raised concerns over the Trump administration’s push to have Ukraine investigate Democrats and Joe Biden.
Trump questions why people he’s “never even heard of” are testifying in the House Democrats’ impeachment probe. Trump has denied doing anything wrong.
