Impeachment hearings live updates: Vindman, three other key witnesses scheduled today in House inquiry

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a senior National Security Council official, testified Tuesday that a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that is at the heart of the impeachment inquiry was “a partisan play” and prompted him to report it to an NSC lawyer.

Vindman is one of four key witnesses from the White House and State Department who are testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. The others are: Jennifer Williams, an adviser to Vice President Pence, Tim Morrison, another senior NSC official, and Kurt Volker, a former Trump administration envoy to Ukraine. House investigators are seeking to prove Trump leveraged military aid and a meeting in exchange for investigations of former vice president Joe Biden, his son Hunter and other Democrats.
