President Donald Trump walks off Marine One at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Oct. 28, 2019. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Iraq war veteran and the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, is expected to tell House impeachment investigators on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019, that he heard Trump appeal to Ukraine's president to investigate one of his leading political rivals - a request the aide considered so damaging to American interests that he reported it to a superior.

WASHINGTON - A military officer at the National Security Council twice raised concerns over the Trump administration's push to have Ukraine investigate Democrats and Joe Biden, according to testimony the official is prepared to deliver Tuesday in the House impeachment inquiry.

Alexander Vindman, an Army lieutenant colonel who served in Iraq and, later, as a diplomat, is prepared to tell House investigators that he listened to President Donald Trump's July 25 call with new Ukraine President Volodymr Zelenskiy and reported his concerns to the NSC's lead counsel.
